Hive 2 Unboxing & Fitting. Smart Home Series.
Here’s my video where i unbox a Hive 2 system then i install it in front of your very eyes, you’ll have to excuse the sound, in places it got so messed up i had to dub over the top of the video, but saying that everything you need to know is shown, so you can manage to fit your own Hive system easily enough.
Now i’d only recommend fitting this if you have some knowledge of electrics, you don’t want to go blowing up your boiler or hive unit! But saying that all the installation instructions are there in the pack and if you already have a wireless thermostat the wiring like mine will be straight forward, even for the novice installer.
I’ve had this installed for a month now and i can honestly tell you i won’t go for anything else, I would say the geo location thing is a bit naff, it sends you a text to remind you to switch the unit off, but i’d rather have it detect the registered mobiles are out of the house and cut the power itself, texting each phone as it goes out the geo fence isn’t quite the futuristic function i would i’ve expected, although could be useful for some. It also detects when you come into the geo fence so will text you to remind you to turn the heating back on, too late if you’re driving of course, as you won’t get to read the text until you’re home!! So a more automated/advanced system/upgrade would be an advantage here.
I’d give this unit 9 out of 10, only dropping the 1 mark for the geo location thing, it’s a doddle to fit, it’s easy to use and program, it’s a winner in my books so well done to the Hive team.
