Keep an eye on your home's security with the Hive View camera. When it detects motion or sound, it sends a notification to your smart device so you're always kept in the know. With a download of the Hive app on your iOS or Android device you can stream footage live in finely detailed Full HD resolution, and view videos from the previous 24 hours. It's super simple to set up, and can be integrated with other products in the Hive range so you can enjoy the benefits of the connected smart home.
You can customise Hive View so it only responds when it detects a person, and ignores your pets. Additionally, you can set the specific areas you want your camera to monitor, so it's not triggered accidentally.
The moment your Hive View recognises that it's recording a person it'll take a snapshot and sends an image of that person straight to your smartphone as a notification. So it's easier to find a specific event, your event log will display thumbnail images of captured moments.
Two –way audio
With two-way audio, you can talk and listen to visitors and delivery drivers while you're away from home. Play pre-recorded sounds through your camera via the Hive app, including a siren and a dog barking. With Hive View you can also play a lullaby.
You can download recordings straight to your smartphone from Hive View. So if it's a family moment, a funny moment or something calling for a closer look you can share it in an instant.
Full HD Monitoring
Viewing in super crisp 1080p Full HD resolution the Hive View takes in every detail. A wide angle view of 130° ensures you can see the whole room, while up to 8x digital zoom lets you zoom in for a closer inspection. A Night Vision field of 16 feet ensures it keeps monitoring round the clock.
Play back videos from the previous 24 hour period, and live-stream any time via the Hive app. And if you opt in to Hive Video Playback Membership (subscription required), you can get access to a 30 day camera history, plus more features.
Private and Secure
You can set the Hive View to only monitor when you want it to. Set schedules via the Hive app or switch on Privacy Mode at any time. Your camera footage is encrypted using TLS AES 128 bit security so you can be sure it's completely secure.
Easy Set Up
Just download the Hive app onto your smart device and set up the Hive View camera via Bluetooth. With beautifully sleek design by industrial designer Yves Behar, the Hive View can be placed anywhere so you get the prime viewpoint: on the wall, on a shelf or with the included magnetic mount. And if you want to move it to a different room, just grab and go; it has a built in battery that will last for over an hour.

Hive Smart Home
The Hive range of products offers the convenience, remote control and energy efficiency of the connected smart home. Their range of smart heating, lighting, plugs and sensors can all be controlled simply and conveniently via your smart device. Download the Hive app on your mobile, tablet or laptop, and you're away. As you can control them from anywhere with Wi-Fi coverage, you can turn lights on and off when you're on holiday, or turn the heating on when you're on the way home to make sure the house is nice and toasty. Being able to control items remotely can help to make them more energy efficient too. All products pair up with the Hive Hub for connection to your home network, so devices can integrate to set the perfect smart home conditions.
Using the free Hive App (available on iOS and Android), you can control your Hive products from anywhere with Wi-Fi through your smart device. Switch lighting or heating on or off, adjust settings, or set schedules for different times of day. Check if plugs are off when you've already left the house, and check if doors and windows are shut with their sensors. And with 'recipes' you can get your Hive devices to interact to take your connected smart home to the next level.
Please note: While the Hive View camera does not require it, all other Hive smart home products require the Hive Hub (sold separately) to connect to your home network in order to work.
