Depends on your fittings, when I moved into this house the downstairs lights alone hit a kilowatt! Now at about 130w, so save at least 10p per hour the lights are on. Cost me about £20 to replace admittedly, but I easily made that back inn the first year.

You’ll most likely need hive multi zone with two thermostats and a different receiver. The additional pieces are listed at hivehome.com/pro…rol

To be honest unless you have a one bedroom flat, I would not go for this.

All it does is turn the boiler on or off to send hot water into your central heating system.

You won't have control of individual room temperatures if you have more than one room in your home.

Better to get a Tado or Evohome system where you can also replace the TRVs on your radiators, so you can control how much heat they output and hence the temperature in every room.

How do you install one of these

Yes, you shouldn't short out the wiring at the thermostat itself, then remove the stat and leave the live wire in the wall, not good practice.

If you want to remove the stat you need to bridge it out at the junction box.

However if you don't disturb the old stat, just turn up to max, then it doesn't pose an additional risk since it's still wired up and earthed correctly.

You just need to kill the power and loosen two locking screws to get the UP2 off, put the Hive on and tighten the screws.Regarding your old thermostat, you just need a constant live return from it. This can be achieved by bridging the terminals in the wiring centre, or if you don't fancy that just turn it up to max (30 degrees or whatever) and leave it.

All I did was remove the stat and replace with the Hive main unit, 2 screws in the wall. Removed the digital timer and replaced with the Hive receiver. The receiver also fitted onto the existing backplate that the timer was on. Had to wire in an extra link between pins though. I then connected the hub to my router (hardwire). The hub was taking ages to update, over an hour, so called the Hive people and they showed me how to connect the stat directly to the receiver so you don't even need the hub, the hub is just for using the app and controlling the heating when your not at home or can't be bothered to get up.....! Easy to install, connecting to the hub took longer. Easy to use, looks good to. I was always told to put the stat in the coldest part of the house, but you can put it wherever you like. Hope that helps.

The back unit is the same as Hive's so I didn't need to do any wiring, just unscrew the old one and click in the Hive one. It's a system boiler with heating and separate hot water tank. The Hive thermostat is able to communicate with the receiver so it turns the hot water or heating light on, but the boiler doesn't turn on for either. I think this is bcos the old thermostat is still wired on the wall so it's going off that. I tried to take the batteries out but it didn't work. Hope this makes sense.


What happens when you turn old stat on wall up to maximum? I'm guessing boiler will fire, does Hive have any control in that condition?

What model was the controller your replaced with hive?

Also push notifications rely on data being accessible on your phone - SMS is more reliable but hive charge for that service.Range problems can be solved by buying a hive range extender which is just a small plug in repeater.


I recently received a free Hive range extender. I was sent an email saying that my hub had disconnected a few times and would I like a free extender. Just had click the link and enter my details.
