    I've had Hive for a while and it's great, lots of schedule options and being able to control the heating from my phone or watch is really handy (if a little bit lazy). The only down side for me is that it goes through the 4 AAA batteries quite quickly (they last 3-6 months). If you have any specific questions then just shout.

    Had a new worcester-bosch boiler put in during our renovations (don't recall if we choose it or if it was chosen by contractor) and previous was also WB. Seem to work well enough with a decent warranty support (had heat exchange panel thing replaced free - suspect builder mis-treatment rather than just London hard water).

    Can't help with hive as have manufacturer system. All I'd say is check up on any potential security issues if you plan to make your heating controllable remotely...
