£199.95 @ John Lewis
Looks like a good price with installation included and don't need to be part of British gas as with previous deals. Read More

Cheers OP, was waiting for the drop sweet!!! But now I'm thinking Nest might be better
#2
I'm the same, unsure to buy this or nest, maybe others can clarify which one is better.

Nest is an intelligent system that figures out how you use your heating and adapts accordingly. Hive has clever manual setings 2 allow you to customise your heating system. Personally Id go for nest.

Nest has no Apple HomeKit integration, in case that matters

One point to consider, nest stat needs to be plugged in, hive stat is battery operated so is portable.

£20 cheaper than Nest install deal.. The learning thing on Nest is cool but my shifts vary so it would have to be be pretty damm smart

Tempted by this, however we have a two zone heating system which I think means we'd need the extra multizone device as well which is an additional £100 or so.

Anyone happen to know whether the installation included with this product would include installation of the multizone unit too? (Can't seem to find a definite answer on this online).

Doesn't include the multizone hive, would be extra but would include installation. (Engineer for BG)

Neither does hive....yet. Although they claim it is coming

Hive can't even switch my Hive light bulbs on half the time, I'm not trusting it with my heating!
#11
So would this work with an existing oil central heating system?

A good price. My hive has been installed for about 3 months now and I think it's great. Nice functionality. I've installed the door sensors also. Still waiting for the cameras to come out, I've been told unofficially early 2017 but who knows. Can't comment on the nest either way.

It's going to need new hardware to support homekit unfortunately. Which means a new hub.
I think it's worth waiting to see what Amazon do as I got this for £180 with installation this time last year.
Also for anyone that's bothered, after having a new boiler installed since getting hive, I've found it doesn't support opentherm.

Amazon doing it for £189.99 but JL has 2 year guarantee

Same. I think the cat would confuse it too X)

Have been looking in to this and the Nest however my heat/elec bill is only £50 pm combined so if it ain't broke....
#17
Damn it - Was about to buy then remembered my system has one of theose old-school 'Thermostats' that adjusts the heating automatically - ****, need to look to something else to waste £199 on!!

At the moment there is a 6-8 week delay in getting the unit installed by British Gas.
