Hive Active Heating 2 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Hive Active Heating 2 review: A powerful upgrade over the original and the heart of a range of smart devices, but this thermostat lacks the smarts of rivals.

Attractive thermostat ; Easy to use ; Hive ecosystem expands to other devices

No smart learning ; Lacks radiator control ; No OpenTherm support

It isn't the absolute in smart heating setups, but Hive Active Heating 2 is an easy-to-use all-round solution offering plenty of features and a growing ecosystem behind it

Hive Active Heating 2

 

Hive Active Heating from British Gas was a good first stab at a smart thermostat, but the likes of the Nest, Tado, Honeywell Evohome and Heat Genius all offered superior features, easier-to-use software or a combination of both. Hive Active Heating 2,...

Hive Active Heating 2.0 review: Style meets connected practicality

 

Hive is a great upgrade to your old central heating system. It is a straightforward and easy way to bring smartphone control and smart skills

This smart thermostat is hot, hot, hot

Very easy to use ; Thermostat looks suitably stylish ; Geolocation now available

Hive Active Heating 2 review: Not quite at the top of its game

 

A decent smart heating system that can expand to lighting and beyond, but you get more features and expansion options elsewhere

Attractive design ; Impressive range of products ; Sophisticated accompanying app

Other systems allow for more customisation

Yet, for all that, the system isn’t quite at the top of its game. For the likes of lighting, you’re better off with a fully-fledged system, such as Philips Hue. When it comes to heating, the Nest Learning Thermostat provides a better experience and has...

Hive Active Heating 2 review

 

Great smart home hub, but could do with better third-party device integration

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Nice looking gadget

 

Working brilliantly up to now.. Looks the part and does the job!

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Brilliant addition to the automated homr

 

I did the installation myself and it was easy. I have a combi boiler and the only issue was a connection on it was slightly different to the normal spec. Works perfectly with Alexa too so I can set the temperature by just asking!

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

So far so good

 

It's been in a few days & just works. Replaced an existing wireless thermostat & receiver, almost as easy as wiring a plug. Setting up the hub & receiver & thermostat was simple. App works & the house is toasty!
