Boiler IQ - from £69

Boiler IQ is a clever little device that keeps an eye on your boiler and tells us when it stops working. That way, we can help you get it fixed as soon as possible so you don't get left in the cold this winter.

Hive Leak Plan - from £3.99 per month

Stop little drips from becoming big problems with the Hive Leak Plan. Hive Leak Sensors can detect if there's an unusual amount of water flowing around your home - which could mean you've got a leak. It then sends a message to your phone to let you know and if needed, can even help you find a plumber.
