  3. Backup & Restore of schedule & Temperature data

    We had a hive failure where the boiler receiver module died completely. BG replaced the module but we were horrified to discover that our heating & hot water schedules and historic temperature data had defaulted to an 'as new installation'.

    I was under the impression that this data was also stored on the Hive servers but after contacting Hive technical, it was apparent that the data isn't stored and it isn't retrievable.

    So, our 6+ months of historic temperature data have gone for good! and we had to re-program our schedules. Now the schedules I'm less bothered about as these…

  6. One off schedule - e.g. if getting up early

    Ability to create a one off schedule or a custom one off day. e.g. if getting up earlier than normal for work the next day being able to set heating and hot water to come on early. This would not be saved for the same day the following week

  8. Turn light on at sunset turn off at set time

    I want the ability to turn a light on at sunset (can do now) then turn off at a set time (cant do now). I only have the option to keep the light on for a set period of time after sunset. As the sun sets later the light will remain on longer into the evening and eventually into the next day. I have to continually adjust the on time to stop the light remaining on too long.

  9. HIve lights gradual wake up - just like Philips Hue and LIFX

    Gradual wake up over say 30 minutes. I just bought a LIFX bulb to do this rather than Hive lights despite the special offers.

  12. Motion sensor light

    The motion sensor is great for turning lights on and off. However, I have the sensor installed controlling the bathroom hive lights. Is it possible to control how bright it turns the light on? Using the loo in the middle of night with 100% brightness is too much, 5% would be great.

  13. More Heating Schedules

    More heating schedules available for programming around a busy life. Allowing for over night schedule, morning schedule, daytime schedule, returning home schedule, evening schedule. I would recommend additional two or three daily heating schedule slots to allow for better variety of temperature settings.

  14. Time increments

    Would be useful to be able to set these in 5 minute intervals for the schedule control rather than the current 15 minutes.

  17. Time setting

    Can we get the ability to change the time in chunks of 10 minutes? This will save me a lot of money, as I want my hot water to come in for 20 minutes, and not 30

  18. Hour Before Dusk Option

    Now summer is coming we need Hive Smart Plugs to change automatically so lights don't come on too early. How about a 1 Hour before Dusk option.

  19. Advance hot water

    I can currently advance my heating schedule to the next slot if I don’t want it on. I’m not able to advance my hot water in the same way. I either have to adjust the schedule or just turn the schedule off. Why?

  20. Check for correct time

    The heating schedules require that the system time be correct, yet the app neither displays it or provides any way to adjust it.
