Was looking for an additional stat for my heating and most places don't have a discount on these specific stats but came across this on wickes with 20% off also a further 15% off using code BLACK15 (c+c only) taking it down to 67.32 also 4% quidco... Happy day's

If you already have the hive hub this should work fine as main stat but only for combi boilers (heat only)

Yes comes with receiver to connect to main hub which is very easy to do

Is this fir a 2nd thermostat only. I want the hive thermostat without the hub as I have that but don't need more than 1 zone. Old house!

So if you've just got a hub, this would give you a receiver and thermostat, making a single zone kit?

Looking more into it I have my doubts. No reciever mentioned. It's add-on kit only.
I'll get what I need direct from Hive for £75

I can promise you it comes with the stat and receiver it would not work without the receiver to connect to the main hub and you cannot purchase the receiver separately

Yes I just copied the part number into amazon, and it does show a receiver. As I said in my previous post it should be fine for combi boilers only, as the receiver is for heating only, not hot water.

By the looks of it that's for hot water and heating so won't be any good for a combi also when you click on it to buy the ask you to call them.(pirate)

I rang hive to ask if this would work if I already had a hub and they couldn’t give me a straight answer. I have noticed that it mentions you require an existing active heating pack, I’m not sure if this is just because it doesn’t come with a hub. Just seems a little strange that hive sell the multizone and the active heating kit without hub. I cannot see any difference though?

Basically there's two different recievers one for combi and one for old style systems with a tank this deal is for the combi one very easy to wire up only 4 wires

That's because they want you to buy the full kit from them if you do that you will have a spare hub doing nothing also the multizone is for hot water and heating this deal is for heating only

Does the hive multi zone work without the need to re adjust any pipe work?

I've got gen 1 hive kit. That currently controls rads for the whole house.

How would multi zone work if I wanted to control rads upstairs and downstairs separately?

Thanks

If you want multizone you will need to reconfigure your pipework it also involves motorised valves etc not worth the bother unless you are redoing you whole system. I have just fitted underfloor heating and have one stat for upstairs rads and one for downstairs underfloor heating and it works a treat

I'm getting confused with the terminology? Is the receiver the box that connects directly to the boiler? The hub connects to the router?

Thanks for the explanation. So multi zone only works if your pipes are set up that way.

Well if they offer a kit that doesn’t include the hub for less than the multizone Kit your logic makes no sense. Also surely the multizone is for heating only?

Because the multizone kit doesn't come with a hub either it comes with a receiver to connect to an existing "hub"

I know it's confusing but the hot water and heating one runs different to a combi as it tells the boiler to heat you up some water in your cylinder but a combi boiler supply's hot water direct to the tap no cylinder hence no need for two modes.

That doesn’t really explain why they sell two different kits that appear to be the same.

Well if you feel like educating me feel free. You contradict yourself, one minute you say they are the same, then different. I would happily get BG to install it but would they install the multizone if you haven't got the original active heating kit? I already have a hub.
