Centrica Hive Limited has launched the latest addition to their plan range, Hive Warm Welcome Home Plan. It brings together a family of Hive devices and an Amazon Echo Dot to help users create their smart home and control it using their voice, with products that work brilliantly together, such as lights that turn on when you ask them to.

The package features the Hive Active Heating with the option to have it professionally installed by a British Gas engineer, plus Hive Lights, a Hive Motion Sensor, a Hive Active Plug and an Amazon Echo Dot – helping users to easily transform their home into a smart one. It comes with the added benefit of Hive Live membership which gives access to exclusive Hive product discounts, ongoing warranty and advanced features.

With the Warm Welcome Home Plan, users are able to manage their home directly from the Hive app for added convenience and peace of mind. It means the home can be bright and warm for when you return, with the ability to turn heating and lights on remotely. Reassurance is provided when away as lights can be set to turn on and off so it looks like you’re home, the Hive Motion Sensor can notify you if it spots movement and Holiday Mode can be scheduled from the Hive thermostat or app to help save energy.

With the Amazon Echo Dot included as part of the package, users can ask Alexa to manage their Hive devices, meaning the whole family can use them, even if they don’t have the Hive app. If your hands are tied, Alexa can help with switching on the lights and heating – just ask, or you can link them to a Hive Sensor in the Hive app and they will come on as you walk past.

The Hive Warm Welcome Home Plan is available from today starting from £19.99 (excluding Hive Active Heating professional installation) or £27.99 (with Hive Active Heating installation by a British Gas engineer) at 0% interest for 12 months and no up-front costs. After 12 months then the price drops to just £2.99 for Hive Live membership.
