Would I be right that the existing small receiver box has to be replaced with the equivalent Hive unit and then a further box also has to be connected to the router via ethernet, or is it more complicated than that?? Also, it looks like the Hive boiler controller (i.e. the small square box wired into the boiler) is pretty much the same size as the existing receiver of the BG wireless thermostat. The Hive website speaks of interchangeability with certain other systems. Is the old style BG wireless thermostat one of these, so the box is is just physically swappable ?


You have the best set up for this. Clip the receiver off the wall, and clip the hive receiver in its place as they use the same back plate and same wiring configuration. The hub just plugs in to your router.

No because you post like an idiot. It's simple.

What does "NEST! NEST! NEST! NEST!" add to a hive post.

Only an idiot would think it adds anything, but hey I know we've established you are, so lets explain it.

1/ This is a hive post, most people looking here are looking for hive, not next.
2/ This is hotdeals uk, so most people here will be UK based, not american.
3/ The nest used to be the only game in town, however it was equaled and surpassed some time ago by the hive gear.
4/ You're going to say, that's my opinion, yes, but not just mine most of the reviews show the same

trustedreviews.com/opi…071


Major downside to the nest? Price.

Nest -3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat £279ncluding VAT
Hive in this deal? £149 and again the same regularly on Amazon. So good luck, only an idiot would pay £120 more on looks alone, for a thermostat..but then again, they do say and idiot and their money are easily parted and you're the proof of that.

Major downside to the hive, integration - which now it's open and works with Alexa isn't really the case any more, but was true at the time.

Big plus is that a dot is much cheaper than a google home to make hive integrated.


So lets go back to your final point, you're an idiot because you choose something over how it looks, rather than what is the best, you then post ""NEST! NEST! NEST! NEST!" rather than add to the discussion with your shallow view.

Please don't buy the hive that's a deal on hotukdeals at the moment, because You and to be fair, probably only you prefer the look of the nest thermostat over the hive to the extent you're prepared to pay more for it.

Troll, nope.

Why no use?
How are they any less useful than the plugs? It entirely depends what you wish to do.
We have a light bulb set up in the games room, the only downside is you need to get your phone the turn it on / off if you want to schedule option active, so we're going to get a motion sensor to turn on the light when we enter and turn it off when we leave, it can then also be linked to plugs to turn on the games consoles etc when we enter and turn off automatically when we leave, along with notifying us if anyone activates it while we're out.
Entirely up to what you're intending to do around the house but it's far from useless, maybe just not particularly useful for your household.

It's like someone from the apprentice is on here tonight. Lord sugar is going to be very unhappy

Great - when I walked into the office the light switched on - unfortunately after I sat at my computer for a while the light switched off because I hadn't moved enough - I thought I had died!



That still occasionally happens in my house :-) especially if a PIR battery goes flat, most rooms have 2 PIRs which is enough to keep the lights on when you're sat at a computer. Perhaps the really clever bit is the software that detects no one is in the house and switches the alarm on automatically, whilst replicating the movement it detected from previous movement records, so the lights turn on as though someone was still in the house - better than any timer based system. It's quite sad that all this is on hardware that must be 5+ years old and the forerunner to Hive, yet Hive can't manage half of the functionality (thought there's a far amount of my own software in use).

Pretty straightforward 20% across the hive range in their winter sale. I have the hive (V1) and I think it's great.

Annoying postage charge so not much cheaper

None of the hive products work with Apple home kit which is disappointing.

I have the hive thermostat...I have been pleased with it

I can't knock the 20% off however Amazon beat the price of most products after the reduction. You'll also be force to fork out £2.95 delivery for any orders under £50 when ordering direct from Hive.

Hi
Not wanting to knock this, but I think the Amazon Black Friday deals were better. Now before we get a cynical comment about a time machine, previous experience with Hive tells me that post Xmas Day sale prices (at Wickes/Currys/Amazon/etc) tend to match Black Friday prices.

Obviously not guaranteed, but I'd recommend holding fire for another week before pressing the 'Add to basket' button. Just my penny's worth...

Pfftt.... Guess not considered much of a deal then... Ho hum...

Confucius say...Smart Bulbs Expensive...Thick Bulbs Cheaper

not bad prices - normal price for good quality smart bulbs. however I would be hesitant to buy until they show that the kit will work with other products directly. Although the hub costs more Samsung Smartthings is a far better but as it already works with a fair number of other devices. Saying that you can use IFTT is a stopgap and not what I'd want to use permanently.

Looks the same as Amazon deal but 31p more. Sale ends Monday so may give people a bit more time to decide if they feel rushed by Amazon. May also be 4% Quidco but not sure.

Quidco mentions 4% for installation only but worth a try

​It must be weird not knowing even roughly when you'll be home so that a normal 7 day programmer would not suffice.

No wonder traffic is so slow getting out of city centres with idiots stopping to switch on their boilers.

This is something that most people really don't need but get sucked into believing they need. I imagine you spend most of the evening checking if you need to tweak your heating.

Keep looking, you may find a deal on a life soon enough, as you obviously don't have one if you have time to go through people's post count and compare them with others !



Merry Christmas to you too, was there a reason to be so nasty, did I have a go at your friend, happy holidays.
