Product Description
Take control of your heating and hot water anytime, anywhere. Hive makes controlling your heating and hot water easy from your mobile, tablet or laptop. The next generation Hive brings you beautiful design, intuitive control and easy to use features. Hive works no matter who supplies your energy and will work with your existing heating system. With Hive you’ll never need to heat an empty home again so you could save up to £130 a year on your heating bills. You can easily keep track of how you’re using your heating through the temperature graphs on the Hive app and receive heating alerts when you leave or return home. The Wireless Thermostat lets you control your heating when you’re at home, the Hub plugs into your broadband router so you can control your thermostat remotely and the receiver enables your thermostat and hub to communicate with your boiler. If you have a hot water tank, you can easily control your hot water too. Please note that Hive Active Heating must be installed by a qualified professional. If you are buying Hive with no installation and do not have a hot water tank (combi boiler), then Hive Active Heating is right for you. If you do have a hot water tank (conventional boiler), then Hive Active Heating and Hot Water is right for you.

Box Contains 1 x Hive thermostat
  • 1 x Hub
  • 1 x Receiver
  • 1 x User guide and installation guide

Hive is a glorified on off switch. If your boiler is compatible you should look into opentherm compliant heating controls such as the nest and others

I’m not sure if they mean just order another at the lower price and “return” the previous order (as in send back the second one for refund from first one)?!
Anyone know how much it’s likely to go to on Black Friday? How much was it last year??
I'm in the same boat. I'm 100% getting hive heating this year. But I've seen it at £100 with installation over the years..

Last year on black friday is was £148.99 including installation and an echo dot.

Will give in exchange for the code for the free echo dot that's included.

Amazon removed their price promise policy years ago though will sometimes offer a refund by chat or phone. Alternatively, return and buy at lower price.

There are also negatives using Opentherm to achieve that extra 'upto 6%' saving, why do you think its not widely used by boiler manufacturers?

Opentherm is great advice. Much more efficient than switching the boiler on and off. Saves me considering Hive as my new boiler is opentherm capable.

Its not big (yet) in the UK but Europe Germany it's been around for years.

The likes of Worcesterbosch and valiant have their own controllers that do some version of this. But they didn't sign up to opentherm. That way you have buy and installed their controllers also to get their warranty. Same goes for thier filters

£149.99 with installation is not bad at the moment (before everyone gets out their crystal balls and guesses what might or might not be available come Black Friday)

But unless your system has been designed to run at the lower temperatures from the start then you'll run into issues trying to save that extra 6% I know from experience.

depends on system design.

I have a 30kw combi (to satisfy DHW demand) that has a minimum output of 7kw (which is pretty typical of many boilers), I have 10 radiators and at delta T50 all boilers add up to 17kw so the boiler is fine with that. Once my Nest starts to reduce circuit flow temperature when the setpoint is close then the total output of all my 10 radiators at delta T20 is only 5kw.

Boiler can only modulate down to 7kw so guess what the boiler does when its trying to tick over at 5kw?

not just high modulation ratios but also over sized radiators help to allow the cooler circuit temperatures to still heat the room, trouble is as that article you linked said it wont be applicable to 99% of people so trying to convert people to Opentherm on Hive thread is pointless especially just to save 6%

I dont think its just 6%

On off nature of these glorified hive switches also add to more wear and tear of the components in the boiler. In turn additional repair and maintenance costs. Good luck to them.

That's what the manufacturers say, don't forget if the system is designed correctly then the boilers running all the time (ticking over) on Opentherm and that last article you linked to said not much energy is saved modulating really low compared to an 'average' boiler.

I've seen massive savings when I Changed but I think that was mainly due to changing from a 'step modulation' 30 year old Ravenheat to a new condensing combi.

Are you on comission or something
I'm about to purchase a property built only 4y ago, boiler is "ideal combi boiler logic 35" and the house has 2 thermostats, 1 in each floor. I was under the impression it would only heat 1 floor if I turn on only 1 floor, but after some reading I might be wrong and it would turn on all radiators?! The radiators are standard ones.
Would I have to install Hive/Nest in both floors then or just 1?
Thanks.

You'd want without hot water I'm guessing as you have no tank?
