I'm in 2 minds about posting this but here goes....
I've just had the BG engineer around to check out my boiler as I am going on the Home Care package. Whilst he was here he offered me a Hive Active Heating 2 and Boiler plus installation for £149.99. I hummed and harred and did a quick search online and thought "ok why not". He is coming back at 3pm today to install as I have a doctors appointment to go to at midday. I asked him 3 times to confirm and he has assured me it is "the latest Hive out the Hive 2" I will post pictures after installation today.
UPDATE. ENGINEER IS HERE. showed me the offers, best price is 149.00 and it is the Hive 2 with hub and stat to control heating and boiler. working on it now, pics to follow.
all done and working top notch. synched with ECHO as well but apart from telling here to increase and decrease room temperature for not that is all it appears she can do. Well pleased with the scheduling and the HIVE app had a good play around. Did I need it - no as my honeywell controller was fairly new. Am I glad I got it, -yes it looks cool and I like the more control I have. thanks guys.
