MagicMirror² v2.13.0 is available! For more information about this release, check out this topic.


  • Module Developer


    This module will display the inside and outside temperature from your British Gas Hive heating. It is fairly configurable, with some of the text and the inside icon able to be changed. The thermometer is dynamic based on the current outside temperature, and the inside icon will go red when the heating is on. The Target Temperature row will also change if the target temperature of the Hive system is 1°C or lower (I couldn’t find a specific flag for frost protect enabled, so this was the best way I could find to achieve this).

    I’ve never written code before, and this took far longer than it probably should have, but the internet is a great place and there are some great resources and assistance out there, so a massive thanks to anyone that has helped me (directly or indirectly).



    Outside temp exceeding highestTemp value, and heating on

    Target temperature 1°C or lower

    Text and icon changed in config.js to alternate values

    Terrific work. Way to go buddy.

  • Good stuff, works great.

    I was hoping someone would get a hive module up as I don’t have the knowledge to program one myself.


  • Module Developer

    @randomnoise Cheers 🙂 That’s great it’s working - you can never be too sure, when I’ve only got my own Hive to test on.
    Let me know whether you find any issues with it though. And I wouldn’t worry about having any knowledge, I certainly didn’t!

  • BTW, your default values in the readme appear to be wrong.

    The JS shows they are set to
    highestTemp: ‘30’
    highTemp: ‘25’
    lowTemp: ‘20’
    lowestTemp: ‘15’

    But readme shows 30 for all of them

    @randomnoise Doh! That’s the curse of copy / paste! Thanks for pointing this out - fixed the settings in the readme.

  • @mongo116- Don’t know how your module is going for you, but I seem to be getting errors appearing in my PM2 logs… my mm-out log is filling up with :

    Whoops! There was an uncaught exception...
    MagicMirror will not quit, but it might be a good idea to check why this happened. Maybe no internet connection?
    If you think this really is an issue, please open an issue on GitHub:

    my mm-error log has lots of:

    TypeError: Cannot read property 'statusCode' of undefined
        at Request._callback (/home/pi/MagicMirror/modules/MMM-Hive/node_helper.js:87:21)
        at self.callback (/home/pi/MagicMirror/node_modules/request/request.js:188:22)

        at emitOne (events.js:96:13)
        at TLSSocket.emit (events.js:188:7)

    seems to happen regularly, but cant really tell exactly what causes it. The module still appears to be working so whatever this is, it isn’t crashing the module or MM itself.

    Is yours doing this as well? Let me know if I can do anything else to gather info to troubleshoot.

    @randomnoise I’m still waiting for my 2-way acrylic to arrive, so to be honest I haven’t run the module for any real length of time. Most I’ve really done is run it for a few hours. While the pi is still in bits waiting to be fitted into a frame, I will run MM and the module on my Windows desktop over night and see what’s occurring. Funnily enough, I have just started MM up and got the following error which I’ve not seen before

    Whoops! There was an uncaught exception...
    TypeError: Cannot read property 'name' of undefined
        at D:\MagicMirror\modules\default\updatenotification\node_helper.js:35:43
        at D:\MagicMirror\node_modules\simple-git\src\git.js:721:18
        at Git. (D:\MagicMirror\node_modules\simple-git\src\git.js:761:18)

    What are the config settings you are using for the module? What’s the updateInterval set as?


  • Haven’t changed any of the intervals so its just using module defaults

    			module: "MMM-Hive",
    			position: "top_right",
    			config: {
    				temperatureSuffix: "°C",
    				username: "[TOP SECRET]",
    				password: "[NOPE]",
    				postcode: '[WHERE I LIVE]',
    				showNext: true,
    				animatedLoading: false,
    				highestTemp: '22',
    				highTemp: '20',
    				lowTemp: '16',
    				lowestTemp: '14',

    Also got it running in my windows browser ATM with debug console open, but it hasn’t thrown the error yet. I don’t think its occurring all the time, but as my mirror has been running 24/7 there are quite a few of these errors in the logs so definitely not a one off. Log files don’t seem to time stamp entries so I can only tell if I see the timestamp of the log itself change when it occurred.

    @randomnoise Let me know how it goes and I will do some troubleshooting myself.
