Plug is also cheapest I've seen for a while amazon.co.uk/gp/…1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1482478749&sr=8-1π=SY200_QL40&keywords=hive+active+plug&dpPl=1&dpID=21lVSFzh2ML&ref=plSrch

Shame the new shape sensor hasn't dropped below £29.99

New shape sensor is £23.20 on the Hive website.

New shape sensor is £23.20 on the Hive website.



If you need more than one, the "Motion Sensor 3 Pack" is a good deal for £63.20 since it avoids the delivery charge and brings the price down to around £21 each.

Good price compared to some of the other options on the market, not sure I'm ready to spend that much on bulbs but ig you have Hive this would be a good choice rather than having to deal with separate apps etc.

£27.99 for a plug? I think I'll stick with 3xEnergenie smart plugs for £20

What a load of rubbish!

These bulbs are £13 at Maplin.

Thanks for your fantastic input and contribution to HUKD, with 0 deals posted you continue to be a treasure to this community.

Happy Christmas!

been using a bulb since they dropped in price last time on amazon, I have to say they are brilliant, turns on according to schedule and dims to perfection.

tempted for the plug would be handy to turn on the electric blanket while I am downstairs.

any other idea what I can use the plug for?

I bought this bulb from Argos yesterday for the same price it can be purchased at Amazon. The reason why I opted for this one is it can be changed from Cool white to Warm white as opposed to just warm white.
the warm white only bulbs can also be purchased from Maplin at the same price as Amazon as mentioned earlier

The problem you have with the Energenie plugs you are talking about is they don't communicate back with the hub so if they haven't heard the instruction to turn on/off you don't know (quite common) which can be fine if you are present when issuing the command, you can issue it again, but if you're out or want in another room you can find nothing happened. Energenie do sell ones (Mi Home Adapter Plus MIHO005) that do, but are much closer to the price of the Hive socket (RRP £34.99, Screwfix £22.59).

True, but at least you have the option of cheaper sockets. I've also found them 100% reliable over the year that I've had them installed (i.e. the ones that don't talk back to the hub), so the monitoring/talkback feature wouldn't have been worth the extra (for me at least)

I have the original hive system installed when it'd just come out. Will this bulb work with it?

My Hive is v1 and these bulbs with fine with it.

You can get these on eBay two for £5 my four year old loves them

Link please? I presume the two for 5 pounds are not Hive bulbs though?

Yes, I have the same and have bulbs sockets and sensors

The only problem I have with the hive lights so far is that there is no smart switch available. This means if someone turns your light switch off at the wall, the smart features are uncontactable until you manually power on again (first world problem I know)

Great, thanks. Always been curious whether they would or not. Will give them a go!
