Where should I place my Hive thermostat stand?

Aim for around 1-1.5m from the floor and away from heat sources such as radiators and direct sunlight. To make accurate temperature readings, your thermostat needs a free flow of air so please ensure you place in an area not covered by curtains or similar objects. For best performance we recommend your thermostat should be kept in the same position to maintain a connection with your Hive Hub and receiver, signal strength can vary depending on wall thickness and distance from other devices in your home. Remember: If the thermostat is positioned in the same room as a radiator controlled by a thermostatic radiator valve (TRV) this may prevent the thermostat from being able to reach it's target temperature and may cause the heating to stay on.
