We're the team behind Hive Active Heating. Set up by British Gas in 2012, we were given a simple mission: to make the connected home a reality for everyone and not just the technophiles amongst us.

More About Hive

We're passionate about design, digital and physical; we're passionate about tech and think open source stacks are one of the greatest gifts to mankind; and we're passionate about solving tough problems especially ones that are breaking new ground. Above all, we love blending all three of our passions to create products that appear almost magical because they make complex things simple. Our first product, Hive Active Heating was created from this philosophy. Launched on 21st Sept 2013, it's already the UK's No. 1 connected thermostat.

We're keen practitioners of the LEAN Start up methodology which helps us ensure that everything we do results in products customers want. Everything in our world is a hypothesis until it's tested with real customers so that we validate learnings throughout the entire design process.
