British Gas Hive Active Heating

 

The first British Gas smart thermostat is polished, but lacks features.

Slick, intuitive user interface ; Adjustable wireless thermostat ; Hot water control

No location detection ; No British Gas bill integration ; No self install option

and its minimalist appearance is elegant, intuitive and shared across browser and mobile apps. As ever iOS and Android lead the way with the arrival of a Windows Phone version unknown. One frustrating aspect to both iOS and Android, however, is the...

Hive Active Heating review

 

Still one of the best smart heating systems around

Very easy to use ; Thermostat looks suitably stylish ; Alexa integration

Not as smart as some rivals ; Zonal heating is expensive

Simple enough for anyone to use and powerful enough to be useful

Hive turns up the heat in the smart home wars, with a super-stylish thermostat, sensors, bulbs and camera system.

It's intuitive and easy to use ; The thermostat system has a great design ; Alexa integration is fantastic

You need a professional to set it up ; No motion sensing to turn heating on ; Adding products can get pricey

Hive Active Heating is simple, stylish and smart. It's easy to use and offers a great way to make your home smarter. And the more Hive products you add to it, the better it becomes.

Hive Active Heating review

 

Smart thermostats are like buses and, well, you know the rest. For the best part of 30 years there were precisely no technological advances in thermostats and now – boom! – everyone wants to sell you an internet-connected box that lets you control your...

The Hive Active Heating system is a great upgrade for anyone that wants or needs the ability to be able to control their heating remotely. It’s by no means the most advanced (or good-looking) smart thermostat, but it will do the job for a lot of people.

Hive Active Heating review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Hive Active Heating is British Gas's first entry into the world of smart thermostats, and as a result is one of the more well-known smart thermostats. So does the Hive smart thermostat offer anything extra over its competitors, or is it all hype?...

Hive by British Gas review

 

British Gas lets you use your smartphone to control your heating and hot water

Remotely control your heating system with your phone; No need to change gas supplier; Suggest features; Regular updates

Might not work with your heating system; Not cheap

If you've got an aged heating/hot water control system with poor or limited scheduling capabilities it's definitely worth looking into Hive.

There are now numerous smartphone-controlled home heating and hot water systems available, but which is right for you? Here's our Hive Active Heating review.

HIVE Active Heating & Hot Water Kit

 

Handy when it works.

Keeps disconnecting, requiring a complex series of button presses and power cycling to reset. When it disconnects it defaults to OFF, so your heating and hot water schedule does not work!

HIVE Active Heating & Hot Water Kit

 

Relatively easy to fit and works very well.

Bit old fashioned looking in comparison to the nest.
