How to Choose the Best Hive Package for Your Smart Home

As one of the more established brands in the ever-evolving smart home sector, Hive have become one of the most recognisable names based on their expanding range of high quality smart heating and security systems. With the ability to control all of the devices using the intuitive Hive app, users are able to control individual devices and full systems without even being in the property giving complete freedom and peace of mind.

Almost everyone has left the house wondering if they’ve turned the bedroom light off in the morning, or set the central heating to come on when they leave work, so you can arrive home to a warm house in the winter.

Thanks to Hive active heating and security systems you can check quickly and easily via the Hive app on your phone or tablet. Hive offers customers a number of different smart systems and devices, as well as a choice of different pay monthly plans to get the very best out of your investment.

If you’re interested in any of the popular Hive smart devices, here’s everything you need to know to make an informed decision:

The least expensive of the three monthly plans, the Welcome Home Plan starter package offers everything you need to turn your home into a smart home.

For £9.99 per month you’ll get a Hive hub that receives and delivers all of your instructions to the corresponding devices, along with a Hive motion sensor which sends alerts when triggered, plus two Hive smart light bulbs and two Hive plugs.

In addition to these clever devices and systems, you’ll also be signed up to Hive Live giving you exclusive discounts, free delivery and more member benefits. Perhaps best of all, at the end of the first twelve months you will have completely paid for your Hive devices meaning the monthly payments will stop.
