1) I never had a thermostat fitted before this 2) With this it means I’m not heating an empty house 3) If it’s particularly cold outside I can make sure my house is warm before I even step through the door 4) Synced up with my hive door contacts and Phillips Hue lights 5) I can control the heating in each individual room from my phone - as my bedroom is south facing it’s usually a fair bit warmer than the other rooms - I can set the heating just so all without having to get up.
Does this come with the receiver that wires into the boiler? Already have an existing hive hub from when I moved house.
I fitted my Hive myself. YouTube has a number of videos that will show you how to install it. The only slight problem I had was with the room thermostat.
I turn ours down from my phone and she never knows !
Not sure of your home situation but we had the problem of some cold rooms and some too warm so we bought a set of 5 smart hive TRVs, enabled 'heat on demand' and for the first time this winter (since moving into our home) we've enjoyed a house that has had balanced heating throughout. I honestly couldn't be happier with the whole hive setup as it is now
