This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed NEAR can you remove hive heating to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.
Your Hive thermostat needs a permanent connection to the ‘C’ or ‘Common’ terminal. If there is no wire connected to the C terminal on your existing thermostat you should request a professional install. Label the wires to your existing thermostat using the stickers below. Thus pressing Override Timer while the relevant output is on, will switch it off for the remainder of the current Time Slot duration.
How Hive and Alexa work together
And that is probably a combination of all the changes I’ve made. I notice that Hive have released a new TRV firmware (#227) at some point compared to the one in place last winter (#221). You will find the ‘Requires Calibration’ button in the app at the bottom of the TRV settings. Stop burning extra money just to keep your house warm. Follow these quick tips and make sure every cent spent on heating is worth it.
There are a few ways to remove hive hub from a wall. One way is to use a drill bit that is slightly larger than the hole in the hive hub. Once the hole is drilled, use a screwdriver to pry off the old hive hub. Be careful not to damage the electrical wires that run through the hub. Then, replace the new hub with screws and a washer. Products still listed for sale on Hive’s website include its smart thermostat, lighting products, EV charger, and a range of smart plugs and sensors.

In case you are not aware, a Hive installation also involves replacing the programmer with the Hive programmer replacement that they call a receiver . @s1cky11 Level one support is usually a big barrier for anyone with more complex or non-standard query. I’m not referring just to tado°, it’s more a generic market observation.
I think you’re getting to the level of needing a professional in. The https://www.beaxy.com/ting for this should be in the app but if not then support can activate. I have heard some pope, have had to contact support to get the wired thermo stat to identify as a zone controller. This is will not enable digital connection to the boiler and load compensation, just relay operation. Multizone Tado does not exist as it does not have the capacity to open your zone valves via relay and digitally talk with your boiler. The good news is they close and are great……so far.
Switching In And Out Of Stand-Alone Mode – Hive Active Heating Installation Manual
Another device you can use with the Echo Plus, are GE Link bulbs. GE Link bulbs run on Zigbee, so they typically require a hub, namely the Wink hub, when connecting to Wi-Fi devices. However, with the Echo’s built-in Zigbee hub, you can connect them directly to the Echo Plus, and control them from there.
- However, the Nest Thermostat has no problem in controlling wet underfloor heating systems.
- Products still listed for sale on Hive’s website include its smart thermostat, lighting products, EV charger, and a range of smart plugs and sensors.
- Batteries out and back in will sort it but that’s not possible for you.
- This allows basic control of the Pi-ve without the ‘Time Slot’ editing functions provided by the Node-RED Dashboard screen.
The thermostat receiver and boiler should disconnect from the internet connections at home. Yes, you can manually use the thermostat by pressing the buttons on the receiver. When you press the central heating button, it lights up green to signify it is on. You need two devices to control your zone valves – either one wireless receiver and one wired thermostat or two wired thermostats . Place the Honeywell thermostat in any room in the house to control your heating wirelessly. Set the mode to auto, holiday or off to control the temperature of your central heating system.
I would definitely recommend people using Alexa instead of Hive for scheduling because there is so many benefits, not just this one. The other nice thing about Alexa that Hive doesn’t support is you can duplicate commands. So you can tell the bedroom TRV to go to 21c at 8pm and then repeat that command at 8.05pm in case the first command got missed by the TRV. I’ve not had to set mine up this way, each TRV gets a single command at its scheduled time, and its working almost flawlessly.
- The composite screenshot below shows the Hive View has been added to My Hive Home and the Control view with the Hive View device opened .
- Hive has an Alexa skill that lets you add the Hive Active Lights, Active Plug and Active Thermostat to Alexa.
- If or when that happens, my Hive investment will continue working.
- A short boost for Hive Heating can be set by using the Boost preset, this will turn on the boost feature for 30 minutes at 0.5 degrees higher than the current temperature.
An ‘Override Timer’ function is available allowing the current state of CH or HW to be changed for the duration of a time slot . Model 3 and 4 have onboard Wifi making them very suitable for this project. The reason I chose a model Zero W was it has onboard Wifi allowing me to place it somewhere convenient where it is in good Zigbee network range for the SLR/SLT and Wifi range. In addition, my Pi-ve runs an additional task of listening to my Bluetooth LE thermometers and relaying temperature data to my Home Automation system.
If you are not into techie stuff, you can still use can you remove hive heating like a standard thermostat. You can only have one wireless receiver, which is what they will have been telling you. As for wiring one thermostat to two zone valves, I would consult a professional.
How do I get rid of Hive?
- Go to the installation folder of Vee-Hive. Most of the times it is located in C:\Programs files or C:\Program files(x86)
- Double click the file to start the uninstallation process.
The thermostat should now pair to the boiler receiver. The amber light should turn green, and the thermostat will go through the getting started wizard. Updated – Belkin’s WeMo Insight Switch can provide power use information and control of home appliances and lights, if you can get past its many bugs. I understand that from the manufacturer’s perspective, at some point in time you have to stop adding new features and actually ship a new product.
Hive is actually an exception to the rule, as many other Zigbee devices are able to use the Echo Plus as a hub. I can control the water and heating but the previous owner left no login details and as it stands we cannot use the remote control feature. If you have the hub connected, unplug it from both the mains and broadband router. You can skip this step if the Hive thermostat does not connect to any hub. It’s so common to zone the heating, I’m really surprised that these ‘smart’ devices haven’t been designed with this in mind.
@HiveHelper Hi, hive thermostat and heating all down, tried to reboot, remove batteries, all that and no joy..
Can you look at and advise? Thanks

Get it wrong, or touch the wrong parts and serious injury or death may result! Also, keep it well away from children and pets whilst developing and testing this. If uncertain how to connect the Boiler Controller , then obtain LTC advice/assistance from a qualified person. The receiver’ s status light will begin to flash amber. The image below shows a recording of an event triggered by a person . “Person” is shown at the top of the screen along with a time stamp that increments in seconds during the recording.
