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 -

    This system drops out more than a 56K modem did 10 years ago. The thermostat fails to link to the boiler and then the app fails to see the thermostat. This system overides the timer on the boiler so when either of these things happen you can't manually turn the heating on until you've paired the thermostat again .......

    Very easy and convenient to use. Engineer stayed with us until we all had it on our phones and showed us for the different platforms (android & apple etc) never had a problem with this, always works. Highly recommended!

    Ok when it works. Used it for 2 weeks advised by Hive of fantastic new features. Hasn't worked since then. Just told "oops there's something wrong". Still waiting for them to sort it. Not good
