Hive Thermostat deals
The Hive Thermostat is the best selling smart thermostat from Hive. It manages your heating and hot water from the Hive app and can control up to 6 heating zones in your home. Once a professional has installed it, the Hive Thermostat is ridiculously easy to use and works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri Shortcuts, Apple HomeKit and IFTTT. The thermostat interface can also be adjusted and you can view and edit your heating and water schedules there. The Hive Thermostat also has Geolocation, frost protection, heat boosting controls and child locks.
Customers can buy the Hive Thermostat with the Hive Hub or without it. The Hive Hub plugs into your router and connects all your Hive devices together wirelessly so they can all be controlled remotely. While you don’t necessarily need one, the Hive Hub is essential if you want to control your Hive devices remotely. If you don’t have one, you can only control your Hive Thermostat when you’re at home and connected to your WiFi.
With the Hive Hub, the Hive Thermostat is £179 or you can buy the Hive Thermostat without the Hive Hub for £119. Before you scroll through the Hive Thermostat deals widget below, check out 5 things I wish I’d known before buying a Hive thermostat for more information.
Hive Thermostat Mini deals
The Hive Thermostat Mini is very similar to the Hive Thermostat, except it has a smaller, more compact size and is less expensive. They’re both compatible with the same apps and boilers, and have most of the same features. The main difference between the two is that the Hive Thermostat Mini has less controls on the thermostat interface, like editing schedules, child lock, holiday mode, boost buttons and frost protection temperature. If you want these controls, you’re better off choosing the Hive Thermostat.
That’s not to say that the Hive Thermostat Mini doesn’t have its benefits. It’s still an incredibly intelligent smart thermostat and it has a simple design that fits nicely into your home. Its petite size is even better if you don’t like the look of having a huge thermostat sticking out of your wall. The Hive Thermostat Mini is £119 with the Hive Hub or you can buy the Hive Thermostat Mini without the Hive Hub for £59.
