Seems like a good deal, I hope Amazon match it, got lots of vouchers to use up.

Does anyone know if there are wifi radiator valves that are compatible with Hive? I have an old Victorian flat and the South facing rear of the flat is much warmer than the front so it would be good to individualy control each room to try and get an even tempreature through out.

Have you tried manually balancing the system using the valve at the other end of the radiator?

Google the process first so you understand what to do and that could really help.

ECHO TURN HEATING ON.

How does the Hive rate against its competitors, namely Nest and Wave?

Is it self install? It's got a higher price which includes installation....

No, you don’t need to have an existing thermostat but if you have one the Hive thermostat would replace it.

thanks 😊. How easy is it to fit without allready having a thwrmostat? Is it worth paying for instillation?

If you set a certain temp on this, how does it ensure the whole house is that temp?

Alexa, what's the temperature in my home?

Hub connects directly to your router via Ethernet cable
Receiver goes where your programmable timer is , if you lucky it will fit to you existing timer backplate without the need to touch any wires ( drayton and honeywell timer have the same backplates )
Thermostat is portable, i have mine in the living room

Word of warning, I called them to order this version WITHOUT the hub as I have ordered the Amazon Echo Plus (built in Hive compatible hub) and they wouldn't sell it to me as they said they 'didn't think it will work properly for some updates and need to escalate to their manager'..... Annoying! But, that would save me another £79 if I can get away with it.

I'm assuming I can just disconnect my two current thermostats from the wall somehow, but likely I'll have a big old hole/gap to paint. Which is annoying me the thought of it! Hoping this all works nicely...

On the phone to them, they said they'll add 2 bulbs on with the active heating and hub which is a special, including the Dot, for £177, with free delivery. NICE.

Okay I've seen a lot of HIVE products on my offer now so I have a few questions

What is it ? Why is it useful? Do I need a professional to fit it? And does it save me money in the long run?

Asked about this but would only give me the additional bulbs if i signed up to the additional welcome home plan at £10 per month on top of the £179. Perhaps you got lucky😁

Oh sorry to hear, how frustrating. Perhaps it's because I was displeased they wouldn't sell me the kit without the hub, or they would but said I'd have no warranty or support! They just don't know enough about Amazon Echo Plus yet to assist...

I did mine in 30 mins
Originally i had an old mechanical thermostat on the hall wall and the timer under the boiler in the kitchen.
Mine's a separate hot water and heating system.
So after isolating the power, I disconnected the thermostat. And joined the live feed cable together and put a face plate where old thermostat was.
Then in kitchen removed the timer bit left the backplane as it looked exactly the same as the one with the hive receiver.
Fitted the receiver to the backplate, connected the hub to the router, made a hive account and registered hub.
Bingo
Downloaded app on phone

Done

Hmm, I have no timer under the boiler, just a couple twiddle knobs! The timing and everything is done via the two digital thermostats on the walls. Hoping this won't be too tricky!

Alexa !!! Its freezing, put a hotcuppa on luv
