Multi zone heat control?


I am a new homeowner and I know nothing about heating control. I have done some searching but cant find any real answers. I have a small home from 1930 but it has 4 zones of heat (20+ year old gas boiler). So I have 4 old school dial thermostats. I also have 1 central AC controller, but I am more concerned with the heat.

My question is, do they make a system where I can have 1 master thermostat that controls the other 3 remotely? And can the remote locations have an override to call or cancel heat if I need it?

The connection in the back of all of them are just 2 wires. I dont know if that matters. I would really appreciate the help! Thanks.

You would need to go to a commercial control system. And it wouldn't be cheap.

Thanks. I had hoped there would be one that operated something like a wireless alarm system. Oh well. Then what is a master/slave system?

Thats when the other zones can only have heating or cooling when the master zone is calling for it. They may or may not reach set temp.
