Our sensors monitor your boiler and mains water to check for issues like leaks or faulty thermostats.


If we see your boiler has stopped working we'll let you know so you can carry on with your day as soon as possible.

Prepared engineers

They’ll see your boiler’s data before they arrive and have the right parts ready for you.

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.
