For those who are wondering
The hub is required if you need to use it with the app or any voice activated device like Google home or Alexa. Which is the whole point of these. If you aren't going to buy the hub then you might as well just buy a traditional thermostat...

Without hive hub. .. you have been warned
I've been watching this one for a while and missed a few other deals. Finally snapped it up with the current offer they have. I already have the hub from a previous incentive where I got a free hub and a couple of their bulbs. If you already have a hub thats great compared to paying an extra almost £70 just for the hub!
Which is the best to use with Google home ? Heating only.
Just to confirm this is excluding the hub?

I believe from research the hub is what links the wi-fi to the receiver so it can be controlled remotely and also for geo-location.

I've just got the Hive Active heating (only) 2 days ago. Took me 10 minutes to fit and it's a great piece of kit. Google is fully supported and she does everything I need when changing temp etc.

I prefer tado.

I prefer tado.


Should have said. Be careful if the subscription. If you can get an earlier tado (not 3+) then you avoid £20 year sub.
I like the idea of this apart from the HUB connected to the internet 24/7.

Is the HUB required or can the Thermostat/Receiver be used like a traditional wireless thermostat?

I have a hub for lights I bought but dont want to use it all the time.
If I use the hub once to set it up will it carry on working if I disconnect the hub?

Hence my question ... I need to replace my aging Honeywell thermostat as the buttons don't respond any longer.. And that costs over £100... Would this act like a traditional wireless thermostat? It's cheaper and looks a lot more elegant and easier to use

You need the hub to control this wirelessly through your phone or Alexa/home

Why do I need a Hive Hub?

The Hive Hub is a device that is used to connect your Hive products to the Hive app with broadband internet. If the Hive Hub is not connected to your Hive products you won't be able to control them remotely via the Hive app. The Hive Camera and Hive View do not require a Hive Hub, as their functions differ from all other Hive products. If the Hive Hub is not paired with the Hive products through the Hive app, your products will only work in standalone mode.

Do you have to have the hive hub if using Amazon echo?

So standalone mode is like a regular wireless thermostat?

I don't need app or remote control.

Put another way, if your hub broke or your internet went down, would it still function as a thermostat and timer if it's already set up and programmed

Yes this can be used as a stand alone thermostat. You do not need the hub. If u want to use your phone to control your heating only then donyou need the hub.

If you want to use your phone to control the heating you DO need the Hub (how else is supposed to connect via Wi fi ?) . If you are happy to use it just as a conventional wireless thermostat you don't need the Hub .

Bear in mind the display is only on for 7 -8 secs after pressing a button - so no permanent display of temperature etc .

I was lucky. My fitting matched exactly to the Hive backplate. So it was a case of unscrew old one, screw in new one. No wiring changes or anything.
Is there a code for this or maybe the offer has ended?

Thats exactly what i said.
I still have hive v1 from a Screwfix deal £50. Why would I need the new thermostat? Works flawlessly tbh. If your sat on the Fence, next time it comes up. Buy it.
The Hive controller is a bit of a blunt instrument compared to a system like Heat Genius. HG allows you to control individual radiators in individual rooms so you're not heating the whole house just to keep your TV room warm. Voice control, remote operation, whole house override, underfloor heating control, all available. Not as pretty as the Hive admittedly but I'd rather have the more flexible, economical system.

Never heard of it. Sounds good. I am interested to know how the individual heaters are controlled is it TVR? As this system will be released soon to HIVE I believe.
Also what is the cost comparison between HG and Hive?

A Porsche is better than a Ford Focus but not really an alternative, looking at £600+ for a reasonably sized house on HG are you not?

The radio-controlled valves are about £60 each, plus the hub and the boiler controllers. Yeah it's expensive but so is heating empty rooms. You have to decide if it's a worthwhile investment.

Don't know what you mean by TVR but the radiator valves are on a dedicated wireless network. Each one has 2AA batteries that need replacing twice a year. Unlike a Hive the system has to be professionally fitted but unlike the Hive you can control the entire system right down to one radiator. Up to you whether the initial outlay is worth it in terms of not heating empty rooms...

Their website has a cost calculator.
