Does your home love technology? If so I bet they would love a smart home! A home where you could control lights, locks, electronics, appliances and other devices from anywhere using an app. It sort of sounds like something from a Twilight Zone episode doesn’t it? Well, it’s not, the technology is really here! I’m partnering with Mom It Forward and Hive to tell you about a product that could change your home forever.
What Is Hive?
Hive combines all of your smart home automation, security, and entertainment devices into one central access point so you can easily control everything in one spot. Not to mention it is beautifully sleek and slim.
The elegantly designed Hive Trio is composed of Hive Hub, Hive Cloud, and Hive Sound.
Hive Hub is compatible with many of today’s connectivity standards including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Honeywell, Z-wave, and 2gig. It allows you to connect to more smart devices than any other hub on the market today, including 500 million smart devices in homes today (plus, 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!
Hive Cloud makes it so you can access & control your home’s smart devices from anywhere.
With cloud access through Hive, you can monitor and control your home from anywhere using the companion mobile app. It’s a clean and simple app that makes it easy to navigate. With the touch of a finger you can arm your home’s motion sensors, door and window contacts and video cameras to bring you peace of mind. 24/7 professional monitoring, backup power supply, and backup cell service help ensure our customers receive the best protection possible. Hive even works when the power goes out or the internet goes down. My favorite thing about this security system is that there are no contracts required and it’s easy to take with you if you ever decide to move.
Hive Sound is a unique wireless home audio solution that will do more than just your home with music. Hive 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 (Yea, I know!!), 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. This is truly a smart device! Whether you like to play your music on Pandora, Spotify, Rdio, YouTube, or local music from your phone, Hive Sound can broadcast it all!
Hive speakers also have built in 2-way voice controls which allow you to speak to your home. I don’t know about you but I speak to inanimate objects all the time…they just doesn’t listen. Hive is there to listen to you. Feeling cold? “Home, turn the heater to 70!”

Where Can You Buy Hive?
Hive just launched their kickstarter campaign on January 28th. Within the first day they reached 25% of their goal! They have just over 40 days remaining to reach the rest of their goal.
Hive has been in the making for a while now and is already past the prototype stage. They just need a final investment boost to make their production dreams a reality.
Hive believes in blurring the lines between company and customer, and they are extremely passionate about giving power and a voice to their customers. They are breaking down the walls that separate companies and customers to partner with our community in a new way. Hive is a community run company. They want to prove their commitment to the Hive community through profit sharing with their customers, no contracts, no monthly minimum purchases and by asking the community to help them design and build all our products!!! Doesn’t that sound great?
