If you know G, it's no secret that he L-O-V-E-S the newest tech gear. When we were dating, I remember being in constant awe of how automated his home was. Now that we're married and own a home, we've spent quite a bit of time researching and dreaming about what our smart home would look like. While there were several very interesting options out there, we hadn't found anything that seemed like it would fit the all-inclusive bundle we were looking for. That is, until Hive reached out to me.
We did a bit of research on Hive, wondered how we hadn't stumbled upon it already in our searching, and gave an enthusiastic "Yes!" to joining the Hive SmartHome Family.
Our box arrived last Wednesday, and we could hardly wait to unpack it and start playing!
The starter kit we've got includes the Hive Active Thermostat, 2 Hive Active Lights, a Hive Active Plug, some Hive window and door sensors, and the most important piece: the Hive Hub.
The Hive Hub is the central piece that integrates your whole home. It plugs in to your broadband router, and through your WiFi, connects everything controlled by a Hive item to a smartphone app.
I'll let you know in a few weeks how Hive is working for us, but for now, I can't tell you how excited we are to have our whole home in the palm of our hands! If you'd like to play along with us, you can pick up your own Hive set here!
