Here’s what others think:

Rather than twiddling the thermostat like someone’s dad in the 1980s, you twiddle with the thermostat via a smart-looking app, like someone’s dad in 2013 -
This is designed to put heating and hot water controls in the palm of your hand rather than you having to clamber in a dark cupboard to change them -

Say hello to our preset temperature widget - it allows you to preset your favourite temperature and set your heating to that with one touch. It won’t change your mode (unless it’s set to off) just the temperature and you can add as many as you want. Why not tweet us a screenshot of your widgets @hivehome using #hivewidgets

    Still new to hive so I'll have to see if I save energy and money. Geolocation doesn't know if I'm coming or going. Sometimes I'm not doing either and it pops up. I'd like to be able to save schedules to swap and change during holidays etc

    Not worth what we paid for it. Doesn't work properly. Constant "thermostat not communicating" issues.

    There was a little hiccup recently but the guys at the end of my phone sorted it quickly for me. I love this app and my Hive.
