Owners of the Hive smart thermostat, will be pleased to know that British Gas has today announced a partnership with the awesome automation service IFTTT. Enabling owners of Hive to use a number of automation recipes and connect to over 300 other products and services.
Hive joins other smart thermostats already available via IFTTT such as Google’s Nest and others. Offering new automation such as being able to turn on your heating when you are less than 30 minutes from home.
Hive is so easy to use. You start with the Hive Hub which is the heart of your connected home. The hub, which you only need to buy once connects all your wireless Hive products so you can control them remotely with the Hive app. Think of the Hive app as the remote control for your home. A single app that lets you see and control all your Hive products from your smartphone.
From heating to plugs to sensors, it’s easy to control everyday things with Hive. Wherever you are, control your Hive products from your mobile, tablet or laptop. We may be a British Gas innovation but our products are available to everyone.
