We've teamed up with Hive to find out how their range of products can help you take control of your home from anywhere! Stylist, Lily Russo, has been trying out the whole range, and, over the next few weeks she'll be letting us know how she got on!

Whenever I use my hair tongs, which is usually before an evening out or a special occasion I always worry if I’ve remembered to turn them off or not. I have even been known to make it all the way to the tube station and have to run back only to find they were off all along. If this moment of uncertainty sounds familiar then you have to try the Hive Active Plug™. You can control the plug socket from anywhere in the world and if I have left my tongs on, I can switch them off from my phone. It'll also save you time, whether you’re late for work or your taxi to the airport is waiting, you don’t have to run round the house turning off each individual plug but can do so from your phone in a few clicks - I'm hooked.

Have a read of day two, day three and day four of Lily's Hive diary and, if you're ready to take control of your home, check out Hive's full range here...
