Size Name:1 Pack
With the Hive Plug, you can control your home electrical appliances from your smartphone, tablet or laptop once you’ve installed it into your home. You’ll never have to worry again about whether you’ve left certain appliances on. With the Hive Active Plug, you can easily switch them off from your phone no matter where you are. You can also set up to 6 on/off time slots a day. So, if you’re going away, you can switch your lamp on and off as if you’re still at home just to give you that peace of mind. Just pair your Smart Plug with the Hive Hub and add your plug device on the Hive app. Please note that this product requires the Hive Hub, an Apple iPhone or iPad running iOS 9 or higher, or a device running min 4.4 Android. The app can also be used on a laptop or tablet with internet access The plug requires the Hive Hub (if you don’t have Hive Active heating) which connects all your Hive devices so you can easily control them with the Hive app.

Don’t think this is decent price. You could get 2/3 for the same price from Amazon.

It's the same price on amazon for this (£29) as they've probably price matched.
Bear in mind, it's a 'Hive' plug and not a generic WiFi plug, which is why it is so expensive compared to other brands - it fits into their eco system and app which is presumably why they charge more than others.
Seems a decent price for it, but for what it is (a standard WiFi plug) it is still expensive and Hive should really be bringing the price down as its hard to justify their pricing with the plethora of cheaper, similar functioning devices now kicking about.

I'd like to see 2 or 3 hive branded plugs for £29 on Amazon. If you have any links, please share
And cheap radiator valves too please
I read decent price for smart plug - not ‘the’ smart plug. Apologies. I still wouldn’t pay this much for one smart plug, though.

It's not a WiFi plug and that is the advantage, Hive is a ZigBee system and does clog up the WiFi, It's a shame Hime keep their ZigBee closed but at least all the kit is not running through the router.
I run two Zigbee systems, Smartthings and Hive (Hive actually has a smathandler to control it through Smartthings).
Sure you can get cheap WiFi plugs ad bulbs but my Wifi is not for my smart home.

The Ikea ones at £9 (correction £10) are good value and work with hue amongst others

If clogging up the Wi-Fi is really an issue you can create another subnet just for the smart home appliances using a spare router. The Hive products shouldn't be this expensive at all, plenty of equal or better quality products for a fraction of the price. One ecosystem doesn't really matter if you're controlling it all through Alexa.

You must have a really crap router or little networking knowledge if your WiFi is getting clogged up by smart devices.
