Family and friends access
Give family or trusted friends access to your HomeShield. So, if the alarm is triggered, they'll also receive alerts. And by assigning them individual PINs, you'll know the moment someone gets home.
Home, Away and Sleep Modes
Customise the Home, Away and Sleep Modes so the right parts of your home are protected at the right time. Like only arming the downstairs when you're asleep upstairs, or your whole home if you're away.
|Home and away only|
Use the family and friends access to keep an eye on your relative's home, or your second home by receiving an instant notification if their alarm is triggered.
Give your babysitter, cleaner or dogwalker their own unique PIN. So that they can get temporary access to your home for the times they need without requiring access to the app.
The moment your alarm is triggered by your Hive View, motion sensor, or contact sensor you'll get an instant alert. Receive a phone call, notification or text so you can take action straight away.
|Single user alerts|
Open the HomeShield app on your smartphone to view a live timeline of events and see exactly what's happened and when. Like when an alarm has been triggered or when the Mode has been changed by a family member.
If there's a break-in at your house, download and share videos or reports of exactly what's happened from the moment movement was detected.
As soon as the alarm is triggered, everyone with access to your Hive HomeShield will receive an alert. The emergency button in the app will quickly connect you straight to your local police station.
HomeShield works seamlessly with your smart speaker. When your hands are full, use your smart speaker to arm and disarm your alarm or change Modes.
Mode change via Apple Watch
Change Modes and arm or disarm your alarm system using your Apple Watch.
HomeShield membership includes 30 days of unlimited video history. So you'll never miss a thing.
