Thermostat for radiant

I'm finishing up my radiant heat set up. I have a hydronic baseboard system that will provide radiant floor heat to 2 small bathrooms. I'm looking for a thermostat recomendation. Should I use a floor temp sensor type thermostat? What's the difference between a thermostat and a "setpoint controller"?

If you don't stand behind our troops, please feel free to stand in front of them.

Thermostat for radiant

Some of the newer theremostats can use either the floor sensor or ambient air Temp
The benefit of this is if the floor sensor fails you can switch it
