UPDATE 13/10 - It appears that the multizone model no longer discounts. The other seems to still be working though


Just moved into a new place, first thing I wanted was Hive installing, was previously all on electric, so considering this. Trying to find the cheapest options and saw these.

You need code 20HIVE to get the £20 discount to work.

Hive Active Heating Multizone Smart Thermostat - Professional Install - Silver £79 with code

Hive Active Heating Smart Thermostat - Professional Install - Silver £159 with code

States it comes with the hub "Hive Hub Included - Needs To Be Connected To Your Router" Just in case you were wondering, as I've seen people ask on these before.

Only a couple of quid more expensive than prime day. Had mine installed a few weeks back, well pleased with it!

I am looking at getting myself a smart thermostat.

I am about to purchase a Nest one but this seems like a good deal, what's the difference between Hive and Nest?

Need hive hub to work with, its not included in this, which is sold separately

Oh nice, kind of annoying me having to go to different rooms to pop the heating for an hour at the moment. Not sure if standard way of doing things, but upstairs I have to hit +1 and then head downstairs for the thermostat Lived in a flat for too long, maybe? Haha. But yeah, thinking ill go for it and then I'll need never have to venture downstairs again (Delviery guys can chuck stuff through the windows

Included in the £159 one

If I got the £79 version would that work with my other hive and give me a second zone?

Works nicely with Alexa.

Alexa what's the temp in the house? It's 20.2

Also IFTTT.

I know outside temp should in theory have no bearing on inside temp, but in my non double glazed home it does.

my thermostat just broke down. Could I install it with old boiler like worcester 28cdi?

The British Gas bloke brought my hub around when he installed it, I'm pretty that's sure that's how it always works

Should really give credit to @alphamike who posted the original £20 discount offer on Hive products this morning.

Keep looking at these but just not sure how much it'd get used, anyone with one already that can say if it's saving them much? There is someone in my house 24/7 so heating is always on.

That said our stat is failing, how is this powered?

This is without installation. Professional installation is required.

Please note, you’ll require help from a professional engineer to install this thermostat in your home. You’ll also need to download the free Hive app, which is compatible with all iOS and Android devices.

You actually have to have the second zone to control, this doesn't create one. If you have, yes this will do the job with both the new and older versions of Hive thermostat.

I would also like to know which would be better

Nest or Hive?

As would I.

My old post still applies.. you can get British Gas to supply and fit Hive for £150! I don’t know why my old post was expired as it still applies. All info is here:

hotukdeals.com/dea…400

These only go so far towards heating control. For a proper system buy Honeywell Evohome.

Easy enough to fit yourself?

Pardon my ignorance.
I currently have an electric control panel in my kitchen which can control upstairs heating, downstairs heating and water all separately. Will one single multizone work for my setup? Or what else do I need to buy/replace?

Following your link it says £249

With all of these products it all depends on how far you want to go.

When I leave my home I get a notification on my phone that the temp set in the home is x degrees, am I happy with?

When I am returning to my home 3 miles away (user set and very good) I get a notification I'm returning do I want to change temp from set one. (you would think this is hit and miss but without creating a major study I would say it just seems to work) and it's useful. I use this with boost. Boost is a feature that overrides all the temp control settings. You can make boost for 30min, 1hour, 2 hours etc. After boost time in reverts back to set schedule. So for me in winter, I get notification when the underground train comes out of underground section and 4g connection is available and I will boost temp (23 degrees) whilst on the train for 30 mins (default set by me). I'm home in 20 mins, job done. When I'm in car I do tend to ignore the notification.

IFTTT will do this for you, but I prefer to control it from the app on my phone as the temp can also be chosen as against being pre-set in IFTTT setup


IFTTT Hive

I have what looks like a 100 year old combi boiler... think I'll get away with this?

Sounds like you have a multizone heating system with zone valves.

The multiroom stat is nothing more than an add-on to the main hive. You need the complete package and multizone as an add-on.

I'd get your system checked before ordering just to make sure.
Gormond34 m ago

How do I create a second zone?


Multiple zones are normally created when heating is first installed. It involves extra wiring, pipework and zone valves to be fitted to isolate parts of the circuit.

You could get a quote to modify your system but may not be worth the hassle.

Can anyone tell me does hive need to be wired to the router or can it work wirelessly?

If i want heating as I have a combi boiler what would be my best option and are they easy to fit??

Just ordered but doesn't seem to be any option for book8ng install

The hub needs to be plugged into the router (wired) The thermostat (wherever you want) and the receiver (attached to the boiler) communicate wirelessly with each other and the hub

Haha sounds like a plan you'll wonder how you managed without it once you've had it a while.
There's been a couple of occasions already where I've got cold and soaked walking home from work so put the heating on the way, ready to warm me up when i arrive. It'll come into it's own when winter hits properly

Only possibly useful if you are single, live alone and come and go at completely random times. Even then, only "possibly".

Robbiecfc54 m ago

Assuming you ordered the £249 model and not this if your expecting install?

can you programme these for day and night times.. my heating on 24/7 as we a disabled household..its a low heat system with one of them fans outside..there is a hot water priority and the programmer just rubbish.. the thermostat in hall is manual... but i would like to be able to have the heating turn down over night as i sleep better at a slightly lower temp than house is during the day (which i can do manually) however if we could have it heat house back to a day time temp a hour or 2 before we get up this would be bliss.

would this be good for us and what else do i need.. fitting is not an issue as long as we have all the right equipment .. well unless there is a cheaper deal for all including fitting.. any advice would be great thanks

Would the £79 version allow me to bypass my existing shoddy combi boiler switch? Don't really care about turning it on from Indonesia

Do I need to be with British Gas to use this offer and/or the Hive? I realise that it just controls a boiler so supply shouldn't matter but wondered if it was locked to their service in some way?

The Nest is a really sleek product, but the thermostat has to be plugged into a socket at all times which is a right let down. The Hive is also a nice product but is battery powered so it has the edge in my opinion.
