Hi guys,

I've ordered my Hive today and can't wait to fit it and start playing. As with most females, my wife's not totally happy as she won't be able to adjust the temp of the hot water tank. Do you plan to offer this in the future. I realise it requires hardware as well as software. .e.g. I she plans to have a bath, she currently turns up the temp on the tank manually to get the tank temp higher than normal. After her bath she manually adjusts the temp of the tank (so the hot water isn't too hot when the kids wash their hands etc.).

Thanks,

Ian

Hello Ian,

Just wondering what will stop your wife from manually adjusting the hot water temp after your Hive is installed?

My HW tank has its own thermostat and that's not affected at all. I can set the Hive to come on to heat water but the tank thermostat will still shut off the boiler when it reaches temperature.

Sorry, I'masking if it will be possible to fit a tank thermostat that can be adjusted via hive.eg. If the wife decides she wants a bath whilst she is away from the house the ability to turn up the tank stat remotely would be great.

Ah, I understand. I don't think that's an option.

Hi ArnosGrove,

I am interested in this setup. Could you tell me how the tank thermostat is wired into the the Hive Controller's circuit ?

Is the tank thermostat part of the circuit where the Hive sends the HotWater on signal and when the tank thermo cuts off then the HW signal is cut off ?

Many Thanks.

The thermostat is on the hot water tank and as you've guessed, it stops the boiler when the desired temperature is reached. The Hive control box will still have a green light on as if calling for Hot Water but the tank thermostat overrides that command.
