The Hive kit
A wireless thermostat
Works just like a standard thermostat, you can change the temperature and adjust your heating schedule when you're at home.
This plugs into your broadband router, so your thermostat can connect to the internet. We'll set this up for you as part of the installation.
This receiver lets your thermostat and boiler 'talk' to each other. It's usually fitted near your boiler out of the way.
And a great little app full of amazing features:
Set a heating and hot water schedule to fit in with your life.
- Hot water & boost
Control your hot water so it's always the right temperature or use the Hive boost button.
Uses your phone's location settings to remind you to turn your heating on before you get home, or off if you've left it on when you go out.
Check what the weather at home is doing whenever you're away and adjust your heating to suit.
- Frost protection
Activates when your heating's off and the inside temperature dips below 5°C - helps protect your pipes from freezing.
- Email alerts
Set temperature alerts and Hive lets you know by email when it's getting too hot or cold.
