Hi Folks

I have a Grant Vortex VTXS2636 Oil fired boiler which is a new installation. I also have a Drayton LP822 programmer and a standard, wired Thermostat in the hall downstairs. Is there any reason that Hive would not be compatible with this setup? British Gas will not install the Hive system alongside the Oil fired boiler but I am not sure why. Before I buy the Hive system I want to understand if it will work ok.

Thanks for any input here

Andy

Looking at the Drayton LP822, it has a standard backplate, so you can just remove it, and put the Hive receiver in its place. Then you will need to bypass the wired thermostat i.e. join the live, and switched live together. If there's a neutral wire there too, just insulate it, it's not needed.
