    I have a Hive to replace the simple mechanical timer and Siemens wireless thermostat for my Baxi combi boiler (see photos). Before starting I would appreciate advice on the following;
    - Do I remove the existing timer entirely (it is fitted in the lower boiler case)?
    - Will the Hive receiver fit directly onto the Siemens receiver backplate/wiring?
    - anything else I should beware of?
    Thanks 5E26B69C-80A6-46FA-A1D5-1121AF5AA574.jpeg

    Hi Ian and welcome to the forum.

    Exchanging the Siemens for a Hive has already been covered before. You can find how to do it by clicking here.

    The only difference for you, is that in your case, you will need to leave the boilers inbuilt timer set to be permanently on, 24/7. The Hive will then take over control from it.
