Control your home from the palm of your hand
The Close to Home Pack has everything you need to set up your smart home and includes Hive View, our stylish new smart indoor camera, plus sensors, lights and a plug along with a Hive Hub. You'll get a clear picture of what's going on, wherever you are — allowing you to stay connected to all the best moments at home as they happen.
Included in the Close to Home Pack
Hive View is our stylish new smart indoor camera, packed with must-have features like HD live-streaming and person detection. It starts streaming when it detects motion or sound, and sends a notification to your smartphone — no more worrying while you're not home!
Hive Active Plug
Hive Active Plugs make your existing home appliances smart. Now you can turn your appliances on and off from anywhere, or have them switch off automatically when you don’t need them.
Hive Window or Door Sensor
Enjoy life to the fullest, knowing that everything’s okay at home with your Hive Window or Door Sensor. The Window or Door Sensor alerts you when your window or door is opened and closed, and can connect to the other products in the Hive Starter Pack.
Hive Active Light
Match the lighting to your mood. If you’re working late, keep it cool white. If you’re done for the day, relax with warmer white. Simply adjust your Cool to Warm White smart bulb from your smartphone.
The Hive Hub is the heart of your connected home. It connects your Hive products and allows you to control them remotely with the Hive app from wherever you are — on your smartphone, tablet or laptop. Just plug the Hive Hub into your router, pair your Hive products and you’re good to go.
With the award-winning Hive app you can control the lighting and outlets in your home from anywhere. Match the lighting to fit your mood. Dim the lights or change the tone from cool to warm. Make any appliance smart. Switch appliances on and off with your phone.
Your smart home should work on your schedule. Have your lights go on, off or dim when you need them to, and change the color temperature to fit the type of light you need. You can set between one and six scheduled time slots a day. Create vacation schedules for your Hive Active Lights to make your home look occupied when you're away.
What's happening at home when you're not there? Get alerts when Hive View detects movement in your home. It can even tell people from pets. Keep a history of events that occur in your home for rolling 24-hours for free, or upgrade to 30-days of rolling with Hive Video Playback.
Bring your home to life with Hive Actions. The Actions section of the Hive app makes it effortless to link up your lights, sensors and plugs so that your home responds to you however you want it to. What will you do with yours?
- Come home to a bright house. Turn on a light by opening the front door. Your Hive Door Sensor can switch on your Hive Active Light for a nice welcome home.
- Turn your iron off by leaving the house. Link your Hive Window or Door Sensor to a Hive Active Plug and never worry again.
