Today Centrica Hive has announced the launch of two-way audio functionality for the Hive View, indoor security camera.

Two-way audio allows users to talk and listen to those at home through Hive View and is a way to stay connected with your home.

The new feature is a quick and simple to use, with just a tap of the mic button in the Hive app you can say hello to the kids when they are back from school or tell the dog to get off the couch.

Two-way audio is available to new and existing Hive View owners and is automatically live once the Hive app is updated.
