Damn. Wanted to try these aswell.

We have hive heating and would love just 2 bedrooms to heat up earlier in the morning, then the rest of house a little later on.

What are your experiences with them?

What is their returns policy like?

I got these at launch in may and TBH there were an absolute disaster...however....now they have sorted the software and they actually work rather well indeed.

I didn't buy at launch. I've been following the progress with these, on Reddit and the community forum. It's the heat on demand function that continues to be a problem, when the TRVs call directly for heat from the boiler. The valve fails to open.
I brought on launch and gave up. If they are working then im happy to buy again as I don't really want to buy something like tado and use 2 different systems to work.

Any chance of linking the reddit discussions so I can follow and check?
From looking a little while ago I think they offer a further discount if you buy a pack of either 3 or 5 radiator valves making them about £34 each.
I was gutted I didn’t bite with the 20% off, but said if I drops £20 I’ll have 5! Cue the 15% off.. ordered! Hope they work
I've installed 15 but not had a chance to play with them in any great detail due to the hot summer. They need 30 mins apparently to calibrate themselves with the heating fully on so will do that when it gets colder. Yep I got them from launch and the software was a mess but think things have calmed down now. Buy them in the sales definitely not when full price - think I got mine for approx £30 each due to being an early adopter. A lot of people panicked first week and sent them back lol. I'm very happy with mine, they look smart and easy to control either manually or via the app.

Anyone know how to cancel a direct debit with hive. I've emailed them waited a week to get an email to tell me they are too busy to deal with my email
Have they solved the TRV heat on demand problem? When I has them individual TRVs that fell below their set temperate wouldn’t trigger the boiler to fire
Any other smart trvs compatible with hive? Have basic hive and standard trv thermostats. Keen to upgrade but prices are nuts. I would need 15 of them.
Just thought I'd give my two penneth... I took delivery of a batch of these today. Installed all 13 no issues. The app find them all and they have no issues finding the hub located in the loft. Calibration took about 3 hours - some were a lot quicker than that. Setting up schedules was also fine and the differing schedules I set have been respected so far.

However, HOD still appears to be broken so far as I can tell... Despite being at temperature and reporting to be off in the app, my lounge radiators were roasting hot whilst other rads were calling for heat.

Overall, quite pleased and will be keeping them as they are a magnitude cheaper than Tado, especially when you have 16 rads to kit out!

Hive let you pay over 12 months interest free for purchases over 250 notes if that helps?

I think the issue, from reading some forums, is that the valves open really really slowly with HoD, rather than full bore immediately, which would be the correct way to do it!
