One Wire For Each Wire.. Except Ground.. You Leave that out.

Live and Neutral Are Used.. See Link ... id=2735672

So you Should Use the Blue and Brown.. Not the Green/Yellow.

Greetings Jacques@zn

A heat pad for beardies does work, but please be advised that beardies usually prefer an overhead heat source, they are sun-basking lizards and will be better at thermo-regulating with a heat source from above, (ie a ceramic heater, infrared bulb etc.)

Be very careful with a heat pad, and make sure that he cant get in contact with the heating pad itself so he cant burn himself, and also check that the pad is capable of keeping the cage at the proper temperatures for beardies, Ive had trouble with heat pads not being able to maintain a good ambient temperature, so just check that yours does...

Good luck!
