  1. I was sent a free smart plug by British Gas about a month after they installed a Hive to control my heating and hot water. Very pleased with the new controls for the hot water and heating (though confess I have not used the heating controls yet due to the warm September.)

    The problem is the plug. I can see it on my list of devices but whatever I do it always shows as offline. The device is busy flashing away in the hall a few feet from the main hive thermostat but nothing will make to appear as a live device. I have tried “install device” on the iPad and it refuses to to recognise the damned thing.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

  2. Hi, thanks for this site. I hope you are continuing to enjoy your Hive.
    I am trying to rustle up some support to get Hive to enable the SmartPlug for remote control (rather than just being a signal booster plug).

    Would you be interested in voting for this product development on the Hive support site:


    I have also written an article on my blog reviewing the plugs:


    All the best,
