    Question Heat only thermostat with remote temp sensing?

    I have hot water baseboard heat with an oil burner. My living room thermostat is a low voltage 2 wire, and is installed right next to our dog door. Because of this, the zone is activated every time the dogs come in and out. This caused the zone valve for this room to fail prematurely. I replaced the valve and now I would like to install a thermostat with a wireless remote temperature sensor. I'm not looking for anything fancy, in fact, the cheaper the better! All it has to do is control the heat and get its temperature reading from a wireless remote sensor. Any ideas?

    Typically thermostats that have remote sensor capability have a common wire. I do not know of a 2 wire thermostat that has a remote sensor option.

    If I could rig a C wire (I have unused wires that run down to the furnace) What would be my options. The cheaper the better.
