Want to keep an eye on the dog while at work? Or make sure the kids aren’t up to mischief? Then the Hive View indoor security camera might be for you. Use the code PREPARE10 to get 10% off at checkout.


The Hive View is a nice looking piece of kit, designed by industrial designer Yves Béhar, it is well-finished with plenty of style. But it’s the features of the camera itself that entice me — night vision camera that records automatically on detection of movement or sound, for example. It creates a daily archive which you can watch via the Hive app (or 30 days for £3.99 a month). And you can also watch it via live stream, with two-way audio so you can warn any intruders that you are watching… bit creepy.

The coolest thing though, is that it connects with other Hive devices, so that smart lights can come on when it detects movement, and will send an email update to your phone if it detects something untoward. You can also connect it to Google Home or Alexa devices and play sounds including a siren to scare the life out of the dog.

Any good?
Decent camera. Good price as Hive selling them for £180.
Added heat, no saving this one
These are just too expensive, the image quality might be 3 times as good as one of those Yi cams but it would have cost maybe a few £ for an improved sensor and lens yet they charge 5 times the cost of a Yi. £100 is about the right price for these. The remote plugs are the same, overly inflated price; they are really good but £35 is insane when the Ikea ones are about £15.
So many other cheaper & better camera's available. This for example which also has reasonably priced (when on offer @ Argos) power switches too.

I suppose you are paying for the aesthetic with the Hive. You have to admit, it looks great when compared to the Kasa, but I suppose style over substance doesn’t cut it.

Cheers
Cloud based product only, no internet at home = no use
no sd card slot To allow local recording
no local access to camera at home without cloud connection
no ability to connect direct from smartphone via Bluetooth or wireless locally except when initially setting up the device for the hive cloud connection
Video has to stream to Hive cloud over your internet connection to be saved
at that point you can save them on your smart device by downloading them via the app from Hive cloud
Posting so any buyer is aware of the limitations

True but what you are also paying for is the integration of this into an existing hive eco system which allows actions based on triggers (detects movement turn lights on or switch on a device etc). I have this camera and am really impressed with the image quality, features and integration.
It always amazes me when people vote cold because they don’t like a product. If someone spots a deal on something surely its a deal regardless of subjective opinions? People have posted deals on here for watches that sell for thousands of pounds which is way beyond the affordability for most people but the deal goes hot because the watch was cheaper than it normally is.

Fully understand the features and quality, and it’s a lovely designed camera, with great reviews
for someone with hiveeco system (which I have too) I fully understand it, but even with discount these are pricey
main reason for my own downvote is around the required internet connection and no local storage for saving videos and because companies like wyze are shaking up the market proving that these features shouldn’t cost the earth
arlo are equally guilty of gauging the market but there are quality cheaper options available and coming

wyze.com/wyz…tml

not sold domestically, but ship through amazon.com to Uk with full set of features, IFTTT, Alexa integration etc
Rebadged as neos smartcams in the Uk but Neos don’t have the full feature set of wyze (people recognition, no IFTTT etc)
I bought arlo originally as any security system i required local storage for video, but having reached the max cameras on the free tier on arlo I’ll be reviewing all options
