Hive Multizone or an "Active Heating Kit"

So I THINK I've got the answer to this, but just want to check what others think.

I've already got a Hive hub and I now want to start controlling my heating.
I don't need to control hot water as that's 'on-demand'
I've physically looked at the Hive Active Heating kit (not heating and hot water), and the Hive Multizone Kit... and they appear to be identical apart from the first one also comes with a hub that I don't need.

Am I right in thinking that I can just buy the multizone kit and use them with the hub that I already have?

Thanks in advance.

That's the idea. You buy just the thermostat and receiver, and they work with the hub that you have already for your other Hive devices.


Note: The picture above shows the dual channel receiver. For a combi without hot water control you need the single channel version.
Thanks for the response.
I'm happy to confirm that having gone out and bought a "Hive Multizone" (for about £95), it works perfectly with the nano 2 v2 hub that I already had, and the single channel controller that comes with the multizone controls my Worcester Greenstar 42CDI perfectly.

Thanks for the update, that will help reassure any others looking for the same information.
