    Hi, I know this has been done to death but I was unable to find something relevant to my boiler.

    I have a hive hearing single channel receiver and I would like to check my wiring is correct.

    I have posted pictures of what is present already.

    I have wired a 3 wired cable

    Live to live
    Neutral to neutral

    From there I get confused.

    The red wire that’s there already is to bypass the previously absent thermostat I presume?

    Thanks

    Firstly - do you have the single channel Hive?

    Then just remove the red link and connect the terminals to 1 and 3 on the hive - doesn't matter which way round.

    Do you mean by 3 wired cable a flex with L,N & E?
    You will need five wires - L,N,E,1 & 3.
    You can obviously use two 3 core cables.

    I’ve wired this up now. Is this wiring correct. I’ve put the live, earth and neutral from the hive into the same slots from the main power to the boiler.

    Yes, that looks right - assuming you have the cables the right way round. :)

    Perhaps you could terminate the wires in the Hive a bit better.
    Take out the screws and make a U with the ends of the wires then put the screw in the round of the U and not have any bare copper hanging out.

    As a matter of curiosity, what was controlling your heating before you fitted the Hive? Just that red link makes me think your boiler maybe has its own integrated heating system controller with wireless thermostat possibly? Which will need uninstalling before the Hive will work properly? Just a thought......

    Hi, it was a new boiler install so there wasn’t a thermostat controller as the plumber knew I was planning on installing the hive.
