Is there any plans to develop hive to work similar to tado/nest where it learns from your location when to turn on /off. Seems this would save even more than what hive currently does and an obvious next step?

I do hope if this does happen it's optional. I specifically chose Hive because I don't want location based services. For me, I'm best placed to work out whether or not I'm coming home, not my phone location.

I agree, it could be useful IF it is optional, but I would prefer not to be tracked. Google (now owner of Nest) already knows far more about me than I really wanted to tell them.

This is being tested at the moment.

Great idea but I can see two possible issues.

1st You would be required to connect to the Internet via your Smart Phone and I know very many people who will only connect their Smart Phone to the Internet via wi-fi because of potential costs.

2nd Your device would need to know IF you are actually intending going straight home and not stopping to do the weekly shop or visit the pub or a friend on the way.

I am not convinced I want Hive to control the heating based on the location of my phone but provided it is optional I don't mind. It falls into a range of features that can be done, are of marginal benefit to a minority of users but look good in marketing presentations.
I imagine the Hive development roadmap includes further elements of home control and monitoring such as lighting and security. I like the 'start simple' approach of Hive.
