The smart way to switch on and off. Hive Plugs
Get your lamps switched on before you even get home, or check you've turned the iron off after you've left.
Why choose Hive Plugs
Works like an adaptor
The Hive Plug works like an adaptor: just plug it into your wall socket then plug your appliances into it as normal.
Control in your hand
Turn a lamp on - or the iron off - from wherever you are with a tap of the app.
Set a schedule
If you're away, set your plug to turn your lights on up to six times a day to make it look like someone's home.
Out and about and think you’ve left the iron on? Relax, from the Hive app you can double check and turn it off, wherever you are.
Set up Hive Actions
Sync your Hive Plug with other Hive devices using Hive Actions. So if a fan's connected to a Hive Plug, a Hive Motion Sensor could turn it on as soon as you get home.
Hands-free at home
