How can we improve Hive Active Heating™ and what would you like to see developed next?

Ifttt support

It would be great if hive allowed ifttt (if this then that) interaction to allow customers to personalise how the hive works

We’ve got some great news to share! We have just launched a new channel on the ever popular internet of things platform, ‘If This Then That’ (IFTTT). This means that you can now set up your Hive Active Heating™ to be triggered by other products in the IFTTT ecosystem.

Now that we’re part of the IFTTT family, it means that you can connect your Hive products to over 300 other products and service’s channels, from BMW to The Weather Channel app.

You’ll be able to connect these and trigger the following actions:

- Setting the temperature to a value you specify

- Boosting your heating

- Boosting your hot water

- Switching your thermostat to ‘schedule mode’

- Turning your thermostat off

We’re here to help on Twitter @HiveHelper if you have any questions.

We hope that this partnership will help you bring a little Hive magic to your everyday, and we’ll be adding more to the platform in the future.

    I cannot connect my motion and door sensors to IFTTT even though lights, plugs and heating are fine. Can you assist?

  • Maax commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    My Hive sensors no longer work with IFTTT. Is this going to be fixed any time soon?

    This worked great till December 2017 then I assume when hive updated it stopped working... thermostat comes up with no option

  • Gren W commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Does not work. No thermostat listed and skips both heating and hot water boosts. Has never worked

    There doesn't appear to be a way to set the brightness level of lights, just on.

    I use IFFT to turn on my Hive lights at sunset. It would be useful if IFFT supported the Active Plugs as well so that I can activate my floor lamps at sunset as well.

    I just got some Hive lights with my heating insurance. I might cancel the insurance as I thought the offer was good but now I realise the home automation features are quite second rate in comparison to other vendors. Can you give us a date when IFTTT control of lights and power sockets etc will be included?

    I would like to use ifttt to switch on plugs connectef to heaters when the weather gets cold. When will you have plug, light and sensor support for ifttt in hive.

    I got the lights free when I signed up for insurance, I'm not buying anything else until the whole range of products gets ifttt support!

    Thats really good, however what about you lights??? You have a great product but just looking at IFTTT, HUE is massive..... You are going to get left behind.....

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Need this with lights! Also turning on lights using your Geolocation! This really should be integrated by now!

  • Martin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Any update on this? Would love to use my lights with ifttt (lights on when I get home in the eve) but this feature seems lacking.. I see Philips hue works?
