Do I need a smartphone to have Hive?

No, but without a smartphone you won't be able to use the Hive app and experience Hive products to their fullest. If you don't have smartphone or tablet, you can control your Hive products from your desktop in your Hive dashboard. We recommend using a smartphone or tablet and the Hive app to have the most convenience and ease.
