The biggest + for NEST is that it automatically figures out the best settings based on the patterns, the HIVE is well kind of dumb like benjai

Have a look here, the NEST empties its bladder over the HIVE all day: wareable.com/sma…786

​I can't really see how it empties it's bladder on Hive by that article? both great products it's all down to personal preference. Nest will learn your behaviour which is just another thing google will know about you but is handy for some and Hive is a 'dumb' system that will do what you want not what it thinks you want.

I just read the article and didn't draw the same conclusion as you.

I read both have pros and cons.

Another article about Nest said although it starts to predict when to switch on, it's training is based on when you switched it on, but in reality, you probably started to feel cold 20 or 30 minutes beforehand. Additionally, the automatic "knowing if you are in or out" with Nest is not supposed to be very accurate.

Nest have also had at least one account of software issues.

I do fancy a Nest or Hive, but atm I am undecided.

The bulbs are cheaper at Amazon. 20% off my ärse.

Do we know if the British Gas 20% off for customers stacks with this? I suspect it does not.

​it states in the description if you want a single bulb it's cheaper on Amazon you don't need to repeat that but 3 bulbs on Amazon are £42 3 bulbs on Hive are £39 so it depends what you're buying plus the 20% cashback back for being with BG makes it a lot cheaper to me

Could you explain more about this please? I also have hive active heating and I wish to throw away some money on stuff I don't need but I'm going to convince myself that I do need.

Ok thanks. I know about those, I thought you meant those strips that you put at the back of your telly to give a Philips Ambilight effect.
