Ok seen it now on the 2nd page that's bloody odd and infuriating.
Can this be used just for heating if I change my boiler?
is this any good? tempted to buy it at this price. I doubt they will get cheaper any soon

We’ve had it a couple of years now and my wife says it’s the best piece of tech we have. I installed it myself with the help of a YouTube video and i’m normally useless with DIY. It’s a steal at this price.

Interested to buy one of these for new flat which is being re-plumbed throughout and new boiler going in. Do you need thermostatic rad valves on each rad or does this control each rad somehow?
Thanks buddy i did the same mistake ordered the 84£ very good condition so i have just cancelled that one and ordered this one

Cheers!

You'll still need TRVs on each radiator to control the temperature in each room. Hive do those too but they're expensive.
Note this is for heating and hot water so this works with heating systems with hot water cylinders (ie not combi boilers).

Is Hive Active Heating compatible with all types of boiler?Aug 19, 2019•Knowledge
Prospect

Question
Is Hive Active Heating compatible with all types of boiler?


Answer
Gas & LPG - Hive works with the vast majority of UK gas and LPG central heating systems. Our engineers are trained to work on both types of system and in the unlikely event that we can’t install Hive you would not be charged. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee compatibility with your specific boiler until our engineer visits you.

Oil boilers - Hive works with most oil boilers and if you have an existing conventional thermostat or programmer can replace either. If you have existing intelligent oil boiler heating controls that modulate your heating Hive will not replace this functionality. As British Gas engineers don’t install Hive Active Heating on oil boilers, to arrange installation we recommend contacting an OFTEC qualified engineer.

Electric boilers - if your boiler works with a standard room thermostat and/or programmer then Hive can control it. Hive does not work with storage heaters or individual plug-in electric room heaters.

Other systems - Our engineers do not install to solid fuel boilers (such as biomass systems, coal) and heat pumps. We haven’t tested on these systems, so can’t guarantee compatibility.

Heating control systems incompatible with Hive Active Heating

Honeywell SmartFit Controls – this system sometimes installed to control gas and LPG boilers, is part of the existing central heating system and isn’t compatible with other external heating controls. Hive can’t be installed with it unless the engineer removes the SmartFit controls first, including all electrically operated valves.

Vaillant VR 65 Control Centre - This is an external controller fitted to some compatible Vaillant boilers. It’s part of the existing central heating system and isn’t compatible with other external heating controls. Hive can’t be installed with it unless the engineer removes the Valiant external controller. If removed please take note of the following:

  • Current timers/thermostats either integral to the boiler or remote will become redundant as will any additional functionality they provide above and beyond Hive Active Heating
  • Any decoration affected by removal isn’t covered as part of the install or under British Gas HomeCare contract
Boilers incompatible with Hive Active Heating

There are some Worcester Intelligent Appliance boilers that aren’t compatible with external heating controls apart from Worcester’s TR2 room thermostat. Hive can’t be installed with these boilers:

I take it you need to order the hive receiver and hive hub to get full functionality?

I've been watching the price for a few weeks and the £134 is the cheapest I've seen it new. Looks like amazon drop it to £110 sometimes. I was going to wait to see what they did on prime day but i'm happy with this, assuming it is like new!

I'm hoping it comes with it. This is in the product description.

Box Contains
1 x Hive thermostat
1 x Hub
1 x Receiver
1 x User guide and installation guide
Very good price for the used like new unit.

10 minutes to shut off fuse to circuit, remove your existing receiver unit and swap this one in.
Then the minor hassle of setting up a Hive account then downloading the app to your phone and making sure everything is online. Straightforward but the boring bit.

Worth getting. Not more than an hour of your life, but so many benefits with winter around the corner.

Brill, thank you.
which one is for normal combi?

with heating or without thanks
So can i just confirm if anybody knows, if I select the heating option, and not the heating and hot water. I get the hub, thermostat and single channel receiver?
Another question, i already have a gen 1 system installed and the receiver has failed.
This is still a good deal just to get a new receiver and an updated thermostat, assuming the hub is registered to somebody else, will this thermostat and receiver still work on my hub (gen 1) ?

You presumably have the single channel version called "Active Heating" rather than this one which is "Heating and hot water".

Yes.

Yes, think you'll need to unpair the existing devices and then pair the new thermostat and receiver with your existing hub. Hive online chat are pretty good if it goes wrong.

Don't think you can use a hub that's been registered to someone else.
Ordered one of these but hub had previously been registered and it cannot be transferred/unregistered, so only fit for the bin. Returning to Amazon!
Guess I was lucky, my device wasn't registered. It was pretty much brand new. I registered the hub no problem. I then contacted hive and they confirmed that I registered the hub. Might be an idea to order after and then try that too? If one works then keep that. But if both don't work then send both back?
