    i have a vailant boiler with a wireless thermostat.

    I would like to fit a thermostat that can be controlled by phone app like Hive.

    Is this easy to do?

    yes easily done , what control do you have ? you will have to change the receiver most likely , shouldnt be a big deal, pics are goof of your existing set up and you will need broadband to use your phone

    Looks like that receiver has come off the front of the boiler as a built in unit. You'll need professional installation from a Gas Safe Registered Engineer to fit a Hive, as the electrics on a modem Vaillant are contained within the room sealing cover, which only GSRE's should remove
