Hello all

Took the plunge an have gone for a Hive setup.

Boiler has a mechanical programmer fitted an no other wired/ wireless stat fitted

Removed the bottom panel of the boiler an can see the main feed on the far left.

Then its currently wired as CN CI CL all of these go to the mechanical programmer

I then have RN RI RL with a link between RI & RL

Im planning on removing the programmer an installing Hive in its place. Im told the wiring is...

Hive Live = CL
Hive Neutral = CN
Hive No = CI
Then a wire from Live (supply) to Common on the Hive backplate

Does that sound correct?

thanks

Yes, that looks correct.

Also, as the wiring diagram shows the other option would be to link out the timer/programmer by linking across CI and CL
Remove the room stat link across RI and RL

Then wire as follows.

Hive Live = RL
Hive Neutral = RN
Hive No = RI
Then a wire from Live (supply) to Common on the Hive backplate

Both options effectively achieve the same result as the boiler timer/programmer and the room stat switching contacts are in series and are linked out accordingly.
