Once you get them set up they seem to work OK but that's the problem. They are very complicated to programme and there is a paucity of information on how to do it. In the end I gave up and went directly to Hive to chat online only to find most of the operators hadn't a clue themselves. One of their operators told me they weren't clever enough to programme to com on at sunset! It took 4 chats and 2 phone calls before they were able to to set them up themselves for me with the functions I wanted. Also they are very expensive.

I bought several of these and set up a multi-lamp schedule for security while I'm out after dark. Worked perfectly - I tested it while I was home and then checked on it while I was away with my phone. It was a bit tedious setting up different schedules with different times each day on each plug but was worth the effort. The only drawback I found was that the normal lamp switch won't work if the lamp is plugged into the Active Plug instead of directly into the wall socket, so even in 'Manual' mode you have to use your phone to turn the lamp on and off.

I dislike the price although AMAZON was quite a bit cheaper than BG direct.
THEN THE GOOD BITS: integrates perfectly with my Hive installation which I love. This is the reason I bought Hive switches as I only need the one Application on the iPhone or iPad. You can buy similar remote switches for 1/3rd of the price but I have no personal experience of these - but I am familiar with the ‘HIVE Phone and Online help service' which is great if you should experience any problem. I do have a ‘Amazon Echo/Alexa' but haven't as yet used it with Hive so won't comment yet. I purchased 2 single switches from Amazon as it was cheaper than buying the twinpack !
So to sum up, if you already have the ‘Hive' heating controls which includes the Hive Hub, then I'd recommend you buy these switches .

I bought this Hive smart plug in conjunction with a motion sensor. I've set the sensor in my bathroom so when the room is entered the light comes on automatically. You can dictate how long the light stays on for. Being in an electric wheelchair it makes life much easier. Even though I have the hub it's frustrating I needed to buy the Hive plug instead of using a generic Wi-fi plug which would be much cheaper. Because of its medical aid practicalities it would be nice to buy with VAT exemption. It does what I needed it to do although I think it's a little overpriced.

Works perfectly with my media system and Hive light bulbs in my 2 lounge lamp and Amazon Echo along with my Hive Heating system. I like it when we retire for the night we simply say "Alexa Goodnight" and all our media sytem devices and lamps turn off. Just waiting for my Harmony Hub to arrive later today to link in with my Logitech Harmony Touch remote, then my whole lounge is fully automated.

Got this to replace an old fashioned dial timer plug and to integrate with my new Hive hub which came with an Alexa dot - looks smart, works well (and is silent unlike my old plug!). Can be manually switched on and off, scheduled via Hive app and integrates with Alexa. Only downside is the price, I had better get saving as I need 2 more!

Update: managed to get them while on sale for £22 - much better value!
