No, the Hive Active Heating System does not contain a security chip that is required for HomeKit.
Also British Gas have removed it's compatibility with both HomeKit and HiveKit

Hive is not compatible for homekit.
It is therefore not compatible with Siri either
Apple have certified only certain chips for security and hive doesn't have those chips inside the hub
It is compatible with Amazon Alexa on the echo and echo dot if you want voice control
I believe a workaround with another piece of kit may be coming in 2017
