Its showing as 249 on site

Do they not just have the heating one or are they all same

Haven’t seen any nest deals yet, waiting out for Black Friday 🤞🏽

Can't see this getting beaten on BF. Superb price.

It won't work you need single zone this is dual zone. I'm waiting on a deal for single zone one myself

Me too but very tempted by this price.

Hive will work with Combi boilers as well. Please beware what you read on these forums, and look on Hive's own website.

Very good price with installation. Although am a Nest owner.

Whats the main difference between nest or hive?

Definitely works with combi boilers as I have one myself. The hot water button just isn't used. Not sure what this talk of it being dual zone only is all about.
I have to say though, I paid £179 including installation 2 years ago from Amazon. I'm surprised at how it's holding its price so well.

Is this likely to be the best it will get on BF deals for Hive? Or have they gone lower in previous years or had other bits included like compatible lightbulbs etc?

Amazon have it for £159.99 as I write. £159.99 - £30 = £129.99 ... waiting for 8am to ring up and see if they will price match. The product looks identical.

*** this is not confirmed but potentially.

Its a no from me. Different model number. "We seem to be getting a lot of calls about it"
Edited by: "dinglebert" 17th Nov

Anyone have the product code for this on ao.com

I have 2 thermostats, one upstairs and one downstairs, will I need 2 hives?

Just ordered mine through them. Price match john lewis which is the same as argos. £30 cashback still holds for £143.99. The Amazon one is a different model but I can't for the life of me see what the difference in spec is other than probably colour.
Edited by: "dinglebert" 17th Nov

If it helps anyone, AO agreed the price match against Amazon for me, no mention of different model number at all and confirmation email received.

They also matched the multizone additional thermostat at £74.99, which is also advertised with £30 cashback.

Maybe its it’s hit and miss, depending who you talk to.

Obviously can’t confirm cashback at this point either.

Will they price match and give the cash back?! I would have thought it was price match including the cash back
Edited by: "bluep" 17th Nov

Heres what I just found out via AO.

They will not price match Amazon (They did early this morning but have now been told to refuse) they do not match with the manufacturer - HIVE are selling them via Amazon.

They will not price match via Argos as it's a different product number.

BUT THEY WILL price match John Lewis which is £173.99 (same as Argos) as its listed as the same product number.
£30 cashback still eligible via a form after delivery

Quick question and probably been answered a load of times in different ways, but I've now read so much that I'm confused!

I'm getting a new house with a brand new boiler that does 2 zones - upstairs and downstairs, do I buy:

Hive Active Heating and Hot Water with Professional Installation, Works with Amazon Alexa
and
Hive Multizone

Is it possible that they will install the second zone at the same time as the first as part of the #1 purchase?

Or should I be buying different modules? Many thanks in advance

It depends, if your current setup is multi-zone (so upstairs is heated at different temps to downstairs) then you will need this plus the multi-zone box.

If your setup simply allows you to control the heating for the whole house upstairs or downstairs then just this box will do.

It's a bit like a Ford Focus vs a Vauxhall Astra. Essentially they both do the same job and are both well reviewed.

The only reason not to choose Nest is that they are owned by Google and as such will harvest all of your data, although that doesn't bother most people.

Thanks, I've been told that there are 2 zones with 2 thermostats, so I assume it's the former - Multizone - I should have been more specific!

But I've gone and bought both now for £192 as I had a voucher lying around on Amazon. Just praying I've bought the right items

ao.com has now reduced their price to £170 but still with £30 cashback. I was on the phone to them to price match to JL but there was a 28 minute wait to speak to the sales team. While I was waiting I refreshed the page and the price had dropped. Still in stock at the moment.

I got it at the 159.99 so fingers crossed it turns up and maybe will get the cash back it's all a gamble lol.....I think the only reason it's different is that it's the Amazon product code is slightly different, but surely is the same item...no?i can't see any other models with installation for sale that does the water and heating/install combo?on Amazon code ends in AMZ? AO number is V2HAHINST-01 but amazons is HAH2INSTAMZ-01 is this the same model (diff name) but purely as sold via AMZ Amazon? I may be wrong but seems logical to me, Argos I can only see EAN of 5054347000341, John Lewis Manufacturer Part Number (MPN) V2HAHINST-01. Let's hope it's not utter rubbish and waiting for next Christmas for the install..*******..p.s just got off a long arduous online conversation with hive that state the codes being placed on the product are the retailer code not their code but it's the same product see screen shot ....32457517-v2LXm.jpg

They've pulled the £30 cashback now - so just your basic £170 now!

Was just going to say that I can't find any cashback

They dont have heating one itself with installation..
I do not have water cylinder so do i need the hot water aswel?

Which makes it rubbish value as Amazon are cheaper who they won't price match with. I was told I would be getting the £30 so I better get the £30 or they will be getting the unit back.
