Great price, heat given... been really considering one of these for a couple of winters now. My only concern stopping me from buying now is that it may go even cheaper come Black Friday...
What am I gaining if I replace my wireless thermostat from 2005? Is it just the ability to control this via the app?

Yes and a monthly note letting you know what everyone else in your area is using as a comparison. Semi regret my upgrade.

And the ability to set up a schedule with ease.
I just got it installed a few weeks ago and I'm finding it really handy.

If I'm running late home from work, I can keep the heating off and put it on via the app when im on the train home, no more heating an empty house.

First world problems!
Way I see it is if it gives u the ability to turn it on before u normally would, doesn't that cost u more money
Hmmm. This just confirms to me that my recent British Gas rewards deal for Hive with professional installation and a free Echo Dot was a steal at less than this costs without either.

Also remember once u have the hub fitted u can upgrade with hive lightbulbs, cameras, door/window sensors, leak detector etc.

BG rewards have 50% off all hive gear atm

How much??

It costs only £59 to get on the Hive Active Heating system as tried and tested by me.

I had a very old BG Up2 Programmer that died on me recently. It was costing £60 to replace it for the same old technology.

Here is how it works:

1. Obtain a £40 Off Introductory Code via anyone with Hive - you will need to enter your email address to receive a unique code, e.g. YLHM8J6MTGM. [Below is my referral link if you want to use it]
Link:hive.mention-me.com/me/…r=1

2. Go to following link to order - Hive Active Heating without Hive Hub:
Link:hivehome.com/pro…buy

3. Select: No Installation

4. Indicate: If you have a Separate Hot Water Tank (or not)

5. Select: No Thanks for Wanting to add additional Heating Zones (£99 optional extra)

6. Go to Basket and enter Promotional Code (or name of referrer) to get the following items for £59:
> Hive Thermostat
> Hive Receiver
> Echo Dot 3rd generation (need to order via Amazon voucher)

Of course, the above is a self install option as is this £130.50 Amazon offer. The Amazon Offer doesn't come with an Echo Dot (3rd generation) while my option doesn't come with a Hive Hub.The Hive Active Heating can be fully operational Without the Hive Hub and Echo allowing you to control your heating and hot water from the Receiver or thermostat. The thermostat is not wired but can be used remotely from anywhere in your premises where there is WIFI signal. Again, you can use the remote thermostat to schedule your heating and water as you desire or select boost on demand.

The benefit of the Hive Hub together with Echo Dot is that you can take the control of your heating and hot water to another level. You can control everything via the Hive App be it from your bed room or from anywhere in the world plus you can control your heating and water via voice command to Alexa (Echo Dot).

So while you have the Echo Dot with my suggested pack, the cheapest way to obtain a Hive Hub is to order a Hive Starter Kit (Hive Hub plus 2 x Hive E27 Light bulbs) via Amazon Warehouse - currently available for under £42 for the set. The bulbs alone have an RRP of £19 each. These Hive Starter Packs tend to be unopened customer returns (when customer accidentally orders Starter Kit with E27 bulbs (screw type) instead of E22 bulbs (bayonet type). If we assume the bulbs are worth £10 each, the Hive Hub will effectively cost a mere £22. (Note, Amazon Warehouse prices fluctuate. I pad just under £30 for what is currently showing just under £42.)

Link:amazon.co.uk/Hiv…8-5

Final Cost for full Self Install Hive Active System with Hub plus 2 E27 Bulbs: £59 + £42 = £101

Final (effective) Cost for full Self Install Hive Active System with Hub: £59 + £22 = £81


The Hive Hub plus 2 Hive E22 Light Bulbs set are also available for an additional £11 for the set:
Link: amazon.co.uk/Hiv…8-3

I hope some bargain hunter will find the above option and insight useful. Reach out to me if you need any further guidance.

I'm unsure, ive only used the offer for the hive outdoor view outdoor camera but it works across all hive products. I can send you the code if you'd like?

Is HIVE better or NEST better?? I'm debating which one to get...


Not that much between them really with Nest just having more automatic functionality than Hive. Ultimately though, they both do the same job well with both being compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. I believe only Hive is compatible with the IFTTT (IF That, Then This) automation app now since Google, who own Nest, decided to discontinue their 'Works with Nest' program at the end of August which effectively stops most 3rd party apps interacting with Nest.

Nest can auto-schedule (if you turn the option on) and auto-tune your schedules by learning your preferred temperature settings over a period of about a week. With Hive, you can manually set up to 6 daily schedules and the thermostat also provides the option to temporarily override your schedules and boost your heating or hot water (if you have a separate hot water tank) in 30 minute increments for up to 6 hours then automatically switch off, an option the Nest thermostat doesn't have. Both can work out if you are away from home; Hive can send notifications to your mobile that you have left the heating on so that you can adjust the temperature manually via the app, whereas Nest can automatically adjust the temperature when it detects you are away from home (or on the way home of course). Both Hive and Nest have holiday modes for setting the temperature while you are on holiday and the temperature you would like to come home to and both have multi zone control though Nest can control up to 20 zones (each zone requires a separate thermostat) compared to Hive's 3 zones. Hive's 4x AA-battery powered thermostat means it is more portable than the wired Nest thermostat and can be fitted on any wall and is easily removed from it's mount for placing anywhere you want to put it in a room.

Nest just edges it in looks and smart automatic functionality for me but Hive does offer a much bigger range of products such as TRVs, dimmable light bulbs, door, window and wall motion sensors that can all connect to the Hive hub. It might just come down to what sort of deal you can get at the time. I chose Hive because I was able to get a 50% discount deal via my BG rewards scheme membership. If the costs had been very similar, I would probably have gone for Nest.
