As long as you don't mind waiting a month or 2 for installation, judging by the reviews....

Yep booked my install last night. Earliest date was 11th Jan :-/

sub £200 for this incl installation is a pretty good price IMHO, if you can wait until the new year!
I bought the hive 1 a few weeks ago for £50.00 form screwfix without installation, but it was pretty easy to install if you know your heating/water wiring!

i would love too, but getting the missus to trust new tech is a battle in itself... telling her im installing it is gonna knock me back !

Just paid £124.99 for the single zone self install version, took me about an hour to get everything nice and neatly installed.

Installation is pretty straight forward, you just need mains power to the receiver, connect the receiver up to the boiler (I already had the wires coming out of the boiler that go into my timer/thermostat, google hive2 and your boiler make model for your connection details), connect the hub to your router & usb power supply, batteries (supplied) in the thermostat, register the hub on-line (code on the back of the hub) and hey presto, it was all up and running.... I had to reposition my hub as the thermostat wasn't always connecting to it, but since it's been moved it's all worked flawlessly !

One thing to note for me is that the thermostat is much more accurate than my old dial version that it replaced, the heating seems to come on more frequently but for shorter periods, where before it would be triggered by the thermostat and stay on for 30 mins then be off for 30 mins while the house cooled down, now it seems to be on for 15 mins, then off for 15 mins.

I was going to order the Netamo today but it has returned to £144. Too much.

Not sure which is the better option now...

Booked my installation for Jan 17th. If you take away the Christmas/New Year holidays, it really is not too long to wait.

Read the reviews on the hive forum. Battery life is terrible. A lot of people replacing them every 2 - 3 weeks.

Thought they were wired in
#10
That's why there's no batteries about.................... damn those hungry Hives ;)

If you have British Gas Homecare you can get this fitted for £149 if you speak to the engineer. It's supposed to be £249, but they're usually happy to say your timer is faulty to give the discount and get it down to £149.

Got my install for Monday I received my unit 2 days via the wicks offer. Had a nightmare on the website said no available dates so had to phone them.

maybe he means this one: https://hivehome.uservoice.com/forums/223103-product-ideas/suggestions/6677577-longer-battery-life
The hive comes in 3 parts The first is a small Wi-Fi controller attached to the boiler, the second a hub attached by Ethernet to your router, both of these are wired. The third part is the thermostat itself. It's wireless and takes 2xAA batteries - At least I hope it's 2, that's all that they sent in the box that arrived today!

Can the thermostat be placed anywhere in the house like the nest?
Thinking of getting this for my parents house as there current thermostat is in their un-insulated dining room which means the house is always too hot!
Not looking at making holes through their walls to install new wiring, so hence really need a wireless option.

Don't forget not to mention to the Installer that you already have the thermostat if like me you don't they fit a new kit and you can eBay the thermostat and get £90

I fit hives on a daily basis- there's no issue with battery life. I've fitted about 500 in total.

​It's actually on hive's own website. Literally tons of complaints.

​You might want to look on the hive website forum. There's pages and pages of complaints. I'm pretty sure the batteries would be ok at time of installation.

If you turn off your Internet can you still use it?

And will these fit to a 20 year old antique boiler which is still going strong?

I've got a tado that I'm having no end of problems with, it was connected and ran for a couple of weeks but now constantly blows the 3amp fuse to the boiler. I'm considering returning it and buying a hive but unsure if I'll have the same problems?

I was wondering what the requirements for boilers for this were - my parents have an old boiler that still works great and if it would work with one of these then I'd gladly get them set up.

Price now £249?

have expired it, received mine and have booked in for the 20th, so not as bad as some have made out!
