    So here's the answer to my heating system from the stone age just on the off chance it helps someone in similar circumstances.. From the 3amp spur to the Hive receiver: N - N L - L From the Boiler/Pump combination to the Hive receiver: N - N L - 3 With a bridge from L - 1 (common) on the Hive...

    Yes I understand your diagrams but I'll have to get someone in to figure out what that means in real terms (as in where).

    Sorry my question is why the Hive single channel is the wrong product? Right now I just need a switch I can control as it just seems to be an on/off system... And you are absolutely correct... In the summer I can not get hot water without putting on the whole system.. I keep the bathroom...
