Registration and Activation

Hi all, You may have noticed over the past few months that this forum has been hit pretty hard by 'kitchen spammers'. I don't know about you, but my kitchen is pretty much fine right now, and I wouldn't come here to learn about getting a new one. In an effort to trim the spam, the forum now has user...

Re: Panasonic Smart Home

That does look like an interesting kit! Best looking gear I've seen since AlertMe - do post back and let us know how you get on with it!

Re: New Hive 2

Funnily enough, I've got Nest Protect smoke alarms too. I did like the idea of having a unit that integrated with AlertMe, but with nothing on the horizon, I went with Nest. To be honest, I'd have gone with any decent looking unit that could handle interconnections, but they were either very, very u...

New Hive 2

The latest iteration of the Hive system from British Gas is out now. Fancy thermostat! There's also a redesigned Hub (Hive Nano 2 Hub v2) unit, given the AlertMe designation of HUB320, or so I'm led to believe. But the interesting thing from my point of view are that automation devices (SmartPlugs, ...

AlertMe bought by British Gas

I was probably a little slow to get this news, but AlertMe is now owned by British Gas. To be honest, I think this is a great move for the future of the platform. The team behind Hive have been enthusiastic from the start and have been very successful at getting those tiny little AlertMe / Hive Hub ...

Re: Downloading Alertme video files

The videos are served out via RTSP - just right click on the video and you should get an option in your browser to 'save as' or copy the link to it. You'll then need something capable of saving from RTSP feeds; probably VLC would do it.

Re: Purchasing and Second Hand Systems

But the bottom line seems to be that you CAN'T order spares from the British Gas number above..... Oh dear. That's not good. Guess it's eBay for the time being, then. I'm surprised it's taking them such a long time to push out any more Hive products, actually. They seem to be going very softly-soft...

Re: The Alerty App

Great - glad it's working for you! I spotted a couple of minor cosmetic things in v1.53, so another update will appear at some point soon. Just wish I had more time to work on it! Definitely want to add firmware upgrading one day. They're not always pushed automatically, so a control for it instead ...

Re: The Alerty App

Over the moon to find an app that supports the BG safe and secure system! I've bought Alerty, but when i open it, it just freezes. The message 'Head over to the details tab...' is shown, but touching there (or anywhere on the screen) doesn't do anything. I'm on an iPhone 5S, running iOS 8.0. Any id...

Re: Alternative!

That's a bit of a tricky one at the moment. I've looked into various other systems myself over the past couple of years, but not found anything that really fits the bill. Where they all tend to fall over are the devices themselves; in my book it's fine if the Hub portion of a system is an ugly brick...
