This Hive Active Heating deal saves you £99

You can currently save 40% on the cost of the Hive Active Heating thermostat plus installation

Amazon has slashed the price of the Hive Active Heating thermostat, bringing the total cost of the heating and hot water setup plus installation to under £150. That’s a great bargain if you’re looking for a decent and well designed Alexa-enabled smart-heating system.

When we reviewed the most recent iteration of Hive Active Heating earlier this year, we found it to be an attractive-looking thermostat with a platter of proactive features – with scope to use GPS data from your phone, for example, to sense if you’ve ventured a certain distance from home and have left the heating on.

As our review says: “Hive can learn how your home heats up, and can then automatically adjust your schedules to pre-heat your home so that it’s at the right temperature when you want it.”

Amazon’s deal cuts 40% from the standard price of the heating and hot water system, along with professional installation from a British Gas engineer. Without the latter, you can still save £35 from the recommended retail price, setting you back £144 in total.

If you’re looking for an alternative, the Nest Learning Thermostat similarly offers a range of smart home heating features. The price of that system is currently £298 on Amazon, including professional installation.

While we found Nest’s offering to be a better overall experience, at just under £150 the price for the Hive Active Heating thermostat is a steal. Check it out below.
