So same as Philips Hue bulbs but more expensive, sorry not going to do it for me!

Hive's new range of crap is over priced even with the measly 10% off code they keep email me. It's not even exactly revolutionary stuff. From a disappointed Hive Active Heating user.

Bought similar from B&M for around 6.99

The thermostat is ok (Hive Active Heating), but these add-one they've recently brought out are just overpriced tat.

Never had an issue with it and it has saved me a bit of money so far.

The Heating side is great, had it for around a year... these bulbs just add on to the hive system.

The irony is that if you google "Apple Hive Heating" it comes up on Apple's page as a supported product!
I've got it working using a Raspberry Pi as a Bridge (middle man), I can now be really sad and ask Siri how hot my house is.

Very disappointed that I can't get hive lights to work for your geolocation like hue lights! I hope they eventually sort this out. Other than that they work well with the sensors.
Oh and I can't seem to see a way of getting ifttt to work with hive lights either.

Apparently they are launching HomeKit compatibility very soon. That's for lights and heating.

Thanks all for the advice - i got the hub and a couple of lights free when i took out boiler cover a couple of weeks ago so seemed a good option to get the thermostat as well - Installation seems steep but looks easy enough

Hmmm think I was wrong. The one I thought was about links to the amazon echo/Alexa - not HomeKit.

But there are several comments suggesting they are looking at HomeKit integration but no firm commitment. You would hope that if they can enable IFTTT and Alexa then HomeKit not impossible.
