Hive is the UK’s largest smart home provider, and they launched in the states last year. Their latest offering is the Hive View, which lets you keep on eye on all of the goings on in your home. This is not only a stylish indoor camera, but it also comes packed with some very cool features like HD live streaming and person detection. You can also set it to ignore your pets, making it all the more handy. It will live stream to your Hive app in 1080p HD, or playback videos from the last 24 hours if you need to review something.
About Hive View
The Hive View starts recording when it detects motion or sound, and sends a notification to your smartphone so you can check it out. Was it just a family member coming home unexpectedly or do you have an intruder? It has a handy magnetic arm that is also a charger. You can remove the cube camera and put it somewhere else should the need arise. This is great for keeping an eye on the kids in the other room. When you are done, just attach the cube to the arm again. You can have it away from the magnetic arm for as long as an home and a half at a time and it will record the area you want, just as long as it is in Wi-Fi range.
Combine the Hive View with Hive’s ecosystem of smart home products – thermostats, smart plug converters, and sensors that can tell lights to turn on/off – and your home is going to be a genius. We talk with Hive at CES 2018 to learn more about this product.
