Yep. 4% ends in 4 days time.

Does the thermostat need wiring or is it wireless?

Obviously the one that connect to the boiler is wired.

Thermostat takes AA batteries and is wireless. The batteries haven't died on me yet since we installed it start of the year

What's the difference between this and the one that cost £99? Thanks..

This one is a primary unit, the last one was a secondary unit (to create a second "zone" in your house)

Most homes require the ones costing £119.99. Heating and Hot Water version is for when they need to be controlled separately. Heating version is for those who have a combi boiler as the hot water is on demand. The £99 is a zone controller. For those who want to control a second separate zone like a conservatory or upstairs differently to downstairs.

Well worth it mate, good choice, and this is a bargain of a deal. I paid more about two years ago but with install.

I would also need to buy the hive hub to be able to use the bulbs on this offer?

So these are without installation? Can you hire someone to install or are they easy to do yourself? We have two heating zones but the hot water is always on so I assume we would only need the heating one? I was going to do the British Gas £9 a month offer and buy a multi zone separately

Ordered and returning my Argos order as that was £124.99 and no light bulbs

It comes with the hub:
"Wireless thermostat, receiver, hub, ethernet cable, plug and 4 x batteries"
If you scroll through the pictures on screwfix you can see everything you get in the kit too.

Is there anything extra the hive bulbs do compared to hue bulbs?
I already have a hue set up, I'm not going to complain at "free" hive bulbs but just wondered if they did anything different, or is it just that you can set up routines/timers to match when your heating comes on?

thanks!

Brilliant deal. Just ordered for collection. Voted hot.

are these worth having? ive got a wireless stat at the minute

Quite easy to install if you or someone you know is okay at reading wiring diagrams and "a bit savvy". If you have two heating zones (say upstairs and downstairs) you'll also need the "Zone Thermostat" at £99 (with another 2 bulbs). You can control your HOT WATER and Main Zone with the Heating and Hot Water thermostat. Why do you always have the HW turned on?

Heat added and ordered yesterday. Picked up 15 mins later. The packaging and description can be a bit misleading. The heating only version states for combi-boiler with no hot water cylinder. I have a Suprima 50 boiler with a Gledhill Systemate 3 cylinder, but the correct one for me was the Heating only. It replaces a Potterton PRT2 thermostat and the wiring took a bit of googling but I think I'm there. Will finish install tonight. The kids are having a great time blowing out the lights in the meantime.

The one pictured s the Hive Active Heating 1st generation I think, surely better off getting the 2nd Gen. £99 or £75 at hive with no light bulbs.

The part number on screwfix is V2HAHKITHEAT&HW-01 which I believe is the 2nd generation.

The Screwfix one is definitely not 1st Gen, 1st Gen looks completely different.
I bought one today, with the two free bulbs and used a 10% discount voucher I had hanging about. Also went through TCB so I got the lot for sub £104 - BARGAIN!

Thanks, ordered for my new house.

Installation is pretty straight forward if your capable of changing a light fitting, plug sockets etc then you will be able to do it, subject to wiring diagram for your specific boiler.

I have a back boiler. But to put my heating on, the hot water needs to be on as well. Will this be ok for my setup?

need an additional zone.....only 20 quid more for the full pack with hub and receiver.....worth just buying 2 and selling the HUB?

This is not the first generation Hive thermostat. The models at Screwfix are all the latest second generation type.

Seeing as you get another Hub plus another two free bulbs I'd say buy the complete kit for an additional zone. Don't see why it shouldn't be okay.

Can someone tell if if you need a subscription to use the active heating? Have you to pay anything after first year?

No. Just register the hub when you are ready. You'll get a monthly email giving you usage details.

2x ordered

Just got a hub for £20 with the Xmas lights deal, can I just get the £75 set then? And have a pop at wiring myself? Have a feeling it'll actually cost me more in the long run, last time I upgraded my thermostat to a wireless one my bills doubled. I have a combi so water on att, heating goes on for couple of hours when it's less than 10 outside
