after buying Hive light bulbs with the little hub etc, I quite fancy connecting the boiler up too, so bought a Hive Active Heating Multizone....

I don't own any other heating kit from Hive. Will the thing I bought work without buying any other Hive heating "kit".

The reason I'm worried is that on the side of the box (that i seen after opening everything) it states

In order to have Hive Multizone you will have need to purchase Hive Active Heating™ which contains a thermostat, receiver and Hub. For each additional Hive Multizone kit you will receive an additional thermostat and receiver.

All i want is a wifi thermostat that's controllable from a web app, my house is tiny so not bothered about "mulitple zones etc"....did I buy the wrong thing, or can i just wire this up an it should just work?

Normally with the Hive thermostat you to start off with the 'Hive Active Heating Kit' which contains everything you need for a single zone central heating system it includes the Thermostat, Receiver and Hub.

If you then want to control a second heating zone (e.g. upstairs) then a 'Multizone Kit' can be added to provide control of it. It has a thermostat and receiver for the other zone, but it doesn't have a hub because it uses the same one already supplied with the Hive Active Heating Kit.

So, if you already have a Hive hub for your other Hive devices then from a hardware point of view you should have everything you need. However there may be some software that you need that might not be present. I would suggest that you check with Hive directly to be sure. You can email or call them to check, I think they are open until 9pm seven days a week.

You will also need to have the correct receiver. There are two versions available. A 'single channel' for combi boilers, and a 'dual channel' for systems that require timing for hot water control.
