About this app

MAKE LIFE EASIER
At Hive, we don’t just think smart, we act smart. From lighting to heating, to charging up
your electric vehicle, we create smart home devices and services for almost 2 million
homes across the country. And as we focus our efforts on a more sustainable future, our
Hive services can help with that, all while seamlessly connecting your home.

TAKE CONTROL
Manage your home with just the tap of our Hive app. With Hive Actions, you can connect
all your devices. If you want to turn on the heating or boost your hot water with a quick
press of the screen, you can do that. You can even set your lights to switch on when
there’s motion detected after dark. However you want to set it up, it’s easy to do so.
By setting your devices to come on and off when you want, you can take greater control
of the energy you’re using. So not only will you set up a super-smart home, but you’ll be
able to do it without wasting energy too. We have a wide selection of Hive products to
help with this.

I've owned the Hive heating product for approaching 6 years now. I feel like it's getting worse with each passing year. The latest is that it does not update the display with the current thermostat temperature reading when you open the app. In addition when you manually refresh the temperature display, it is not updating the display. I am ready to move away from hive. Too many ads and subscription services -- standard functionality and telemetry malfunctioning or not available.

Hi there, sorry you are having issues with the app, are you are using the classic or new dashboard? You could try switching between them for now to see if this resolves the issue. There is a button at the top of the page to switch. Thanks, The Hive Team

App is hit and miss, sometimes it works, today I can't see my daily usage. Update, still not showing usage, and not always on the correct day, so I get my weekday schedule on the weekend and vica versa, I'm not going to uninstall and install again to try and fix it, fix the app. Glad I didn't get the EV charger, am looking to get a Google instead. USELESS.

This app logs you out after every single use. I've uninstalled, cleared cache, gone into settings, nothing works. Completely useless if I can get to the thermostat faster than opening the app, logging in, having it connect, and only THEN making a change. Only to do it all over again the next time you go in to make a change. Very frustrated.
