Today Hive announced a new package that will make it easier for you to set up a home security system with some smart connectivity. It’s called the Hive Home Check from Centrica Connected Home and has been designed with those people who leave their home for a long period of time, be that for a holiday, for work, or just for the day.
It does this with an all-in-one collection of Hive’s smart productions along with a Hive subscription, allowing you to keep track of your home without having to be in it, it does this with a Hive Camera, Motion Sensor, two Contact Sensors and two Hive Active Light Cool to Warm White bulbs.
All of these will then link to the Hive Hub and the user can then control it at home and away via the iOS or Android application.
You will also get notifications when the cameras or sensors detect movement.
To top that off, you can live stream HD video from the Hive Camera on the go, and the camera can sound an alarm or make a deterring sound, such as a dog barking.
It is a monthly based subscription, which has been priced out to split the total cost of the package and the Hive subscription fee in a monthly subscription. It will cost £24.99 a month for the first 12 months, after which it will cost £4.99 a month on a monthly rolling contract.
If you are an existing Hive customer than it will cost just £21.99 a month for the first 12 months, after which it will cost the same £4.99 a month.
