What is try before you buy?

Try before you buy is exactly what it sounds like. It gives you the chance to try the hey products you have your eye on without committing to the full upfront cost.

We understand that creating the perfect smart home often takes a period of trial and error to work out exactly what will integrate with your current setup.

This new checkout method has been designed to give you ultimate confidence when browsing our website and maximum flexibility when it comes to returning items that are not quite right for you.

1) Add up to 7 products to your cart using the green 'try before you buy' button.

2) Create or log into your existing hey account.

3) Select the tracked shipping service.

4) Enter your payment and shipping details (this will not be charged until the end of the trial period).

5) Enjoy your new hey products for the next 14 days.

6) Once your items have been delivered you can manage the items you want to keep or return via the TBYB confirmation email.

7) Any items kept after the 14 day period will be automatically charged to your card.

8) If you opted to return any items, you will be provided with a pre-paid Royal Mail returns label to send these back to us.
