Love it too... apart from the bloody overshoot. Set it at 21° and can guarantee it will hit 22.4 and then not kick in for ages whilst house drops in temp, making it feel cold...so unsure why I love it tbh.
Paid £142 including installation from a crazy John Lewis deal.
Had installed last week it worth every penny just ordered the smart light now
I remember when John Lewis had that crazy price drop I paid £65 defo been good I control the heating from anywhere
Bought the same unit at Xmas from screwfix for £119, and it included 2x hive lightbulbs free
Doubled up and got 2x units and 4x bulbs!

didn't want anything to do with British Gas so went with the Tado system because wanted a HomeKit one and it's been great
Paid £79 for this from John Lewis a few weeks ago. Was an easy self install, really good device.
My personal experience of Hive so far is that I’ve had it installed (professionally) for less than 24 hours now and already had to unplug and restart the Hive hub due to the Hot Water, Heating and two of the 4 x bulbs being shown as offline. I tried closing the app down etc. I hope this isn’t the start of a turbulent relationship with Hive...
Not a brilliant price I paid £120 before Xmas for this kit from Argos

We haven't had any issues other than with the bulb you can't really use the wall switch as well as it sends it off line

There probably isn’t one but not everyone lives the same way.
I admit I know next to nothing about Hive, but I'm starting to want one. We are running on an oil boiler, can I use it? I take it, it is just a remote (smart) thermostat?
I managed to get the fully installed option + kit for a total of £151 during a recent eBay 20% promotion. I swithered about self install but with an older Ideal ISAR boiler I thought it worthwhile paying for a professional. Given it took him nearly three hours to install the kit I think that was money well spent - I suspect it would have taken me a lot longer!

Depends what you have now.

If you have the traditional ancient setup of a mechanical room thermostat and a separate time controller, putting control of both time and temperature into a single programmable device has benefits - such as being able to set different temperatures at different times of day. But you can achieve this with a £30 programmable room thermostat.

Having it connected to the internet is useful if you go away, so you can switch it off while you're away and have it back on for when you return.

I'm not sure if the Hive does this, but the Nest has a feature where it monitors how long it takes your heating to work and also checks the current weather outside and adjusts the time for starting the heating accordingly - i.e. if you want it at 22 degrees for 7am then it might turn the heating on at 6am if it's a particularly cold morning, or 6:30am if it's not.

If you're house is feeling cold surely that would suggest you've got the thermostat in the wrong place? Try moving it.

I've tried it close to the first rad on the system set high, and last rad in the conservatory. Either position overshoots. and then takes a while to drop and it's during this period can feel cool. Apparently Hive does not have TPI which most cheaper thermostats have (apparently stops burning gas as it approaches target temp to see if it temp continues to rise, but the keeps burning small amounts to keep as close to target). There's a massive thread on Hives website relating to this issue
