As a mom, one of the most important things to me is the safetly of my family and my home. In our previous home, we had the standard, run of the mill security system installed where we payed a monthly fee to have our home monitored. It gave us a little peace of mind since our kiddos were little. Once we moved into this home, our kids were starting to get older, and I guess we just let it go...they were older, so we felt safe. Recently though, we constantly see home invasions being reported on the news, and are thinking that it may be time to add a security system, and boy have they come a log way baby!
Can you imagine having a home security system right at your fingertips? Well, you are going to love Hive! It's smart home, security and entertainment for everyone! Folks, Hive has it all!
Hive allows you to easily connect and control your lights, locks, electronics, appliances, and any other smart devices from a single place. Hive Hub is compatible with many of today’s connectivity standards including Z-wave, Zigbee, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Honeywell, and 2gig. Hive Hub allows connectivity to more smart devices than any other hub on the market today, including 500 million smart devices in homes today, and billions more coming to market
in the next few years. Hive Hub and all of Hive’s companion products are delivered synced together, so your customized kit for the home is ultra easy to install – you just plug it in and it works! I mean, it doesn't get much easier than that!
That sleek white disk on the books is the Hive Hub...no crazy huge piece to install on your wall with a gazillion numbers, and this baby can do sooo much, and is a great option for home owners and renters too!

Entertainment and convenience: Hive sound is a unique wireless home audio solution that will fill your home with music. Our speakers produce incredible sound quality but also give auditory and visual notifications about what is happening in your home. Multi-room pairing allows you to play a different song from every single speaker, create zones that play the same song if you’re moving from room to room on a project, or sync your whole house together for a complete whole home audio solution. Airplay & Google Cast compatibility allow you to broadcast any audio you like. Whether you like to play your music on Pandora, Spotify, Rdio, YouTube, or local music from your phone, Hive Sound can broadcast it all! Built in 2-way voice controls allow you to speak to professional customer service reps in the event you need help. And it also allows you to speak to your home. Feeling cold? “Home, turn the heater to 70!”
This is truly an amazing product that I am so excited about! I can invision our family feeling safer, our children being able to access our home without keys, and knowing that we are safe. The super techy mom in me would love to be able to start my coffee pot before I even leave our bedroom and can imagine entertaining friends and playing music with ease. I do love anything that takes less time and makes life easier!
