Hive Active Heating and Hot Water (not including installation) and a Google Home mini smart speaker for £115 from AO see first image below.

There is a promotion to get a free Google Home Mini when you buy a Hive Thermostat - FREEGOOGLE - the bonus however is that the code takes off £49 the RRP for the speaker, fortunately for us AO are selling the speaker for £29 so in essence its a free speaker and an additional £20 off! Happy Days!

I also bought an additional thermostat (multizone) for £84 (currently discounted by £11) so all 3 for £199 see second image below.

I appreciate there have been some deals for used and refurbished with installation before but i think this beats them all and is brand new!

Yes through the Hive App , description from teh website:-

Product Overview - Keep your home perfectly heated exactly when you need it with this Hive smart thermostat. You’ll be able to control the heating remotely from your phone, tablet or laptop – so you won’t need to leave your bed to warm up the house in the morning. If you have the Amazon Echo or Google Home smart speaker, you can even adjust the temperature with a simple voice command, which is great if you’ve left your phone upstairs. This thermostat works with boilers that have a hot water tank , giving you full control over your heating.

its a different deal really mate that includes installation but doesnt include a google home mini so I guess it's like comparing apples with oranges!
Decent deal! Especially as it includes mini Google home! I changed to Hive a while ago and really rate it! It updated recently and gave some good features (including 'ready by' which makes sire your heating gets to the right temp at the right time). Heat...for the heat!

This is not for two thermostats.

It’s for one thermostat that is able to control your heating and your hot water.

Won't be quite such a good deal if Amazon buy out Hive!
That would be a kinda poetic justice for Google playing dirty.

Worth mentioning that the Hive will soon have their own TRV's. They are due to be released on the 29th of May.

Now you can control heat in seperate rooms.

Who knows?
When folks bought "Nest" thermostats and their other "Smart" stuff it was sold it as "Works with Alexa, IFTTT and Google Assistant".
Now Google have bought Nest, those folks have been left high and dry with a product range which will only work with Google Assistant.
No Internet of things and no Alexa. Paul explains in his inimitable way!
BEWARE! I have hive and it has very limited functionality when using it with Google mini. Amazon echo has far better functionality with hive so based on this I'm voting this one cold.

Wouldn't you need smart thermostats on radiators for this? Otherwise how can two separate temperatures be reached?
Got one of these from Amazon warehouse about a month ago for £117 including installation to replace my failing programmer. It's an excellent piece of kit.
Picked this up for a total of £75 when BG and Hive were doing a special deal for existing BG customers and this has been excellent to date.
Assume this includes everything necessary (hive hub and receiver) in which case scorching deal.
The price should be updated as it is now £135. Still a decent price if you want both and good if they honour the £115.
Does anyone know how much installation cost or is it easy enough to do yourself?

Was looking through for someone to mention this, surprised they paired the two into an offer, I thought support had improved I guess not!
Have some heat @Jasek999 even though I’m using a nest thermostat and am very happy with it

Interestingly for products with Centrica and Google behind them both have poor reviews for the respective apps in the apple App Store (2.5) for Hive and (3.0) for Nest.

Yes they have a good app
British Gas recently (April) fitted my Hive under the BG Rewards deal (£149 free echo dot, 12 instalments interest free). I'm very happy with it - now. The first engineer took 2 hours to fit, second engineer another 2 hours to diagnose why it didn't work (faulty receiver). I'm glad I didn't attempt to save a few quid and self install. It does work well with Alexa (free echo dot) and Hive sent me a motion sensor and smart plug to say sorry about the faulty receiver and double engineer visit which also work well (so far).

It's easy enough to do yourself, assuming you can follow a wiring diagram. YouTube helps as well as the internet as many people have posted their specific boiler with the wiring. I did my own but took me an hour or so to find my boiler wiring diagram. I upgraded my existing wireless thermostat so wasn't actually that difficult a job.
