    Nest / Hive subscription based? 11th Jul 17 at 10:53 PM
    Hi there,

    I've been looking into buying a Nest or Hive thermostat so I can control my heating remotely on an app.

    I'm struggling to find clear information which confirms that it's a paid-for subscription service.

    Can anyone clarify if you need to pay for the ability to control the heating remotely and if so, how much it is?

    Thank you.

    You used to have to buy Hive outright, now they give you the option of paying on subscription.

    I've got a hive and its just a one-off payment for the equipment, and thats it. Theres no ongoing subscription.

    If you're an amazon prime member, its available at a stunningly good price today!

    I've been so happy with mine, I really recommend it!

    I also bought Hive as a one off. There is a subscription service for £5.99 per month for "support" etc but at present I can't see why i would want to pay this.
