The product range includes a connected energy plug, window and door motions sensor and lighting controls. Next to this British Gas also announced an upgrade for its earlier released Hive smart thermostat in the form of a new holiday mode and even hot water control.

The Hive smart thermostat has been on sale since last week and has been proven to be quite popular in its short exposure to the public. British Gas claims that using their Hive smart thermostat can reduce bills by a staggering 25% in your average household.
