Hive is one of the biggest names in smart home tech, with a family of devices including thermostats, locks, sensors, cameras and switches. Many retailers offered great discounts across the whole range for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and even though the main sales have now passed, there are still some brilliant deals available if you're looking for a way to make your home smarter this winter.

The devices connect to either the Hive Hub or Hive Active Heating thermostat, which you can control remotely using the Hive app. Because the system is modular, you don't have to make one big investment early on; once you have the Hub or thermostat, you're free to add and remove devices however you want.

The Hive system

Hive started out as a company specialising in smart heating, and its thermostats are some of its best devices. The Hive Active Heating 2 thermostat is simple to use, but stylish and smart.

You'll need an expert to set it up, but once that's done, you can easily control your heating using the wall-mounted dial or the Hive mobile app. You can set a detailed schedule your heating, give it a boost, and even set it to activate automatically whenever you come home.

All other Hive devices - including bulbs and switches - are easily connected to the Hive Hub using the instructions on their boxes. Just plug them in, then tap 'Add another device' on the app to search for your new additions. In our experience, this typically takes under a minute.
