Prepare Your Home for Fall Weather with Hive


Fall is a bit of a crazy season here in Texas. We have weeks where the temperatures go from 40° to 95°—literally from one day to the next. As you can imagine, it makes it challenging to keep the house the right temperature. Every night I ask Colby if he thinks the Hive Active Thermostat™ is set correctly. After all, it’s warm all day and then freezing (in Texas standards) at night.

Prepare Your Home for Fall Weather

Through the Hive App, we can easily check the temperature and make adjustments without getting out of bed. In fact, with the new Hive App for Apple Watch we can also easily manage “quick heat or quick cool” applications from our wrist. Even more convenient considering we always wear our watches and this puts the essentials at our fingertips—even when our smartphones aren’t in our hands. But, the cold and hot temps affect more than just the thermostat.

One of my favorite parts of fall is the ability to open the windows. With the warmer temperatures, we can let a good draft blow through the house. This helps bring the outside in while we are working and the girls are learning. Plus, it always seems to create a fresh and airy feeling to the home environment when we let a breeze flow through the house. Again, this affects the heating and cooling, but Hive’s family of smart products allows us to keep the house the ideal temperature no matter what the weather is doing outside.

And if we forget to close a window at the end of the day? The Hive Window Sensor will send us notifications to let us know we forgot to close it. This is super handy when your husband repeatedly forgets to close the windows he’s opened! Don’t ask me how I know!
