Can I install Hive?

We sell Hive Pro Install and Self Install packages, meaning you have two options for installation. If you're not a professional, going for the Standard Hive package will allow you to make use of the free British Gas installer. However, if you're a professional, you can go for Hive Pro and install Hive yourself. Visit here for an installation guide.
