[RELEASE] Hive Active Plug (UK Only)

Nothing special about this driver, basic on / off / configure.

  • Tried Generic Zigbee Outlet - Device state refused to update when toggling
  • Tried Generic Zigbee Switch - Nothing works
  • Tried Generic Zigbee Bulb - Works fine, but I didn’t need the set level aspect

No idea why Generic Outlet / Switch failed… without seeing the built in driver code there’s no way for me to check.

Anyway, for the handful of UK users out there… hope this helps (makes a good Zigbee repeater seeing as we cant buy the ST outlets anymore)!


Ordered my hub today, and getting all links in place to set it up when it arrives, cheers for this Robin as I have only one (use as a repeater). I nearly overlooked this, but trawling the [RELEASE] posts got me there. :slight_smile:

Is there a Hive hub or anything needed for this to work with HE? Or can you just plug it in and pair with HE? Ive tried looking for ST power outlet but they are out of stock everywhere, or silly price on amazon (over £100) so trying to look for an alternative socket.


Worked for me by just pairing and using the driver above :+1:

Does this driver support power usage reporting?

Plug is on deal of the day sale at £22.99 on Amazon at the moment.

Checking the Hive site, I dont believe it has this option. Its simple on/off.

To confirm from the Systronics RF platform I'm migrating from, this SLP2b smart plug has no power usage information on this system either. Bit of a shame, as it's a great repeater and its predecessor did report power.

Personally I can recommend the Salus SP600 instead. The community driver supports power reporting with it.
