    Hi,

    I have an old wickes timer/programmer for my hot water and heating. It has a backplate and the front that pushes/pulls off this. All the wiring is done into the terminals on the back plate. I'm hoping that this identifies the type of timer I currently have...

    This also has a room thermostat.

    I want to replace this system with a hive system:

    My question : Are you able to offer any tips on how the current wiring translates to the wiring for this device? I'm happy with the component that plugs into the router and how the wireless connectivity works across these.

    Thanks in advance.

    We will need more information in order to be able to confidently assist and give you the right/safe information. Can you give us the make/model of the thermostat? if not can you upload a photo. Also can you give us the make/model of the boiler.

    EDIT: can you also take a photo of the wiring into the programmer and a photo of the thermostat too (wiring if possibly also).
