Currently about to set up hive active heating with a combi boiler so bought the single channel receiver.
At present I have a Danfoss Randallset1 and a Honewell hard wired thermostat which I am going to replace however I would like confirmation that I am going to wire it correctly and was wondering if I could get some help.
Have posted pics of current setup and the hive setup that is required my question is, is what I propose correct?
5 from the Danfoss which I believe is the common to 1 on the Hive
4 from the Danfoss which I believe is Heating on to 3 on the Hive
Live and neutral same on Danfoss as Hive
Then join 1 and 3 together in a connector block where the existing stat is
Thanks in anticipation

I have just had a better look at all the wiring and all is not as it seems. All L N and E as as you would expect. On the boiler terminals 3 & 4 are used 3 goes to 5 on the timer ( marked com on their manual) 4 has been moved and bypasses the timer and now goes straight to 3 on the stat, terminal 2 on the stat although wired has been terminated. Terminal 4 on the timer goes to terminal 1 on the stat. Not sure what to do now, do I just wire 3 & 4 from the boiler to 1 & 3 on the hive
The hive replaces both time clock and thermostat, I would expect all cables to be at time clock so you will need to disconnect the thermostat at that point, there could be a junction box often called a wiring centre but unlikely.
