WHERE TO USE IT In the room you spend the ma­jor­ity of your time – for most of us this is down­stairs in the lounge. This way the Hive ther­mo­stat will con­trol the heat­ing ac­cord­ing to where you are. what it does Hive’s smart ther­mo­stat keeps your home’s tem­per­a­ture ex­actly how you like it – just set it on the dial, or via the smart­phone app, and your boiler will step in, ramp­ing up the ra­di­a­tor heat­ing to raise the level, and cut­ting it when it’s reached the de­sired tem­per­a­ture. A smart sched­uler within the app saves you hav­ing to man­u­ally ad­just the tem­per­a­ture; tell it how hot you’d like it, and at what time you want the tem­per­a­ture set at, and Hive will do the rest of the work. You can even use your phone’s lo­ca­tion to re­ceive alerts when, for ex­am­ple, you left home and for­got to turn the heat­ing off. WHAT IT WORKS WITH Hive, Ama­zon Alexa now su­per­charge it! Com­bine Hive Act­ing Heat­ing with the com­pan­ion Hive Win­dow or Door Sen­sor, and you can set your heat­ing to turn off when you leave home and turn on when you get back.
