WiFi Thermostat w 240V baseboards?


I'd like to install a wifi-enabled thermostat to control 2 electric baseboards. Current thermostat is a 25-year old Honeywell dial, 2-wire connection. No c-wire, etc. Is there a way to get a product like a Nest to work with a 24V relay, or the like? Anyone done this before? Any advice appreciated.
Cheers

This would work with a wifi thermostat.

See http://www.enernetcorp.com/baseboard...plication.html This one will integrate with Insteon Tech. http://www.smarthome.com/300607B/Aub...rmostat/p.aspx

Also the Honeywell EConnect RedLink http://www.morelectricheating.com/pr.../ECONNECT.aspx PDF on the Econnect system http://www.forwardthinking.honeywell...ct/50-1784.pdf

Relay that will allow you to control 240vAC appliances with a low voltage type thermostat http://www.pexsupply.com/White-Rodge...VAC-14415000-p

Personally I would go with the EConnect redlink setup.
