Hive introduces Warm Welcome Home Plan with Amazon Echo Dot voice control

Hive has launched the latest addition to its smart home package. Called the Hive Warm Welcome Home Plan, it brings together a family of Hive devices and an Amazon Echo Dot to help users create their smart home and control it using their voice. 

The package features Hive Active Heating with the option to have it professionally installed by a British Gas engineer, plus Hive Lights, a HiveMotion Sensor, a Hive Active Plug and an Amazon Echo Dot – helping users to easily transform their home into a smart one. It also comes with Hive Live membership which gives users access to exclusive Hive product discounts, ongoing warranty and advanced features.

With the Warm Welcome Home Plan, users are able to manage their home directly from the Hive app for added convenience and peace of mind. It means the home can be bright and warm for when you return, with the ability to turn heating and lights on remotely.

Reassurance is provided when away as lights can be set to turn on and off so it looks like you’re home. The Hive Motion Sensor can notify you if it spots movement and Holiday Mode can be scheduled from the Hive thermostat or app to help save energy.

With the Amazon Echo Dot included as part of the package, users can ask Alexa to manage their Hive devices, meaning the whole family can use them, even if they don’t have the Hive app. For example, Alexa can help with switching on the lights and heating.

Alternatively you can your lights to a Hive Sensor in the Hive app so they will come on as you walk past.

The Hive Warm Welcome Home Plan is available from today starting from £19.99 (excluding Hive Active Heating professional installation) or £27.99 (with HiveActive Heating installation by a British Gas engineer) at 0% interest for 12 months and no up-front costs.

After 12 months then the price drops to just £2.99 for Hive Live membership.

Hive is also currently running an Easter Sale with 20% off selected Hive products and one month free on selected plans – available now on until 8th April 2018.
