Hive Home System Review
I am about to complete a whole year of living completely on my own and it has been so exciting! There are always perks to living on your own but something that always gets me is when I am alone in my apartment at night. Sometimes I walk into my apartment and go straight to my room and shut the door just to be ‘safer’. However, once I end up in my bed I hate having to get up to either adjust the A/C, turn off lights I left on, or look around for my TV remote. Now I do not have to worry about any of that.
I was gifted the Hive Home System and I am loving how easy it makes my life! So there are several components to the Hive System, but I got the window/door sensors, the lightbulbs, thermostat, and their plug-in. So how does this work? Well, you connect all your items to your Hive Hub on your smartphone and from there you can manage all of these things from the comfort of your phone!
My personal favorite is the plug! So you connect this to any appliance you want in your home and whenever you want it to turn on you are able to do so from your phone. I connected mine to my T.V because I have a SmartTv, however in order to watch Netflix the T.V has to be on for at least 2 minutes. This is so helpful because now I can turn it on with my phone before I even get inside my apt. and I can just crawl in bed and watch my favorite shows asap.
Also the Hive Lightbulbs are so cool! You can install them in any lamp you want and you can turn on or off from your phone! This is so helpful whenever you’re already in bed and need to turn off a lamp you accidentally left on!
The coolest part about the Hive Thermostat is that you can schedule your A/C anytime anywhere! This can definitely save you some money in the long run! Sometimes we forget to turn off the A/C when we go out of town so this is perfect because from your phone you can adjust the temperature or turn off completely.
Last but not least, are the window and door sensors. These little things can be attached to your door or windows and it will automatically update you every time someone comes in or out of the house. It also lets you know when windows are left opened. This is super important to me because sometimes you have to take precaution when living alone!
I hope my review on the Hive Home System was helpful to you guys! I totally recommend having something like this if you want to make your life easier. You guys know I am all about that! xoxo
