baseboard heater wireless thermostat


Not sure if it exists.

I have a converted condo with baseboard electrical heaters. Right now, all the heaters have the thermostats on one side of it. So, right now, one has to bend over to turn the thermostats and it is hard to know if you turn it too much or not.

The right way is of course running some wires in the wall and add wired thermostats for each baseboard heater.

Being on a middle floor and thinking about saving hassle, I am hoping to find some thermostat that can be wirelessly controling the baseboard heaters.

I know there are wireless switches for 120V switches. Is there anything that is for 240V baseboard heaterss?

Thanks

If there was such a thing, you would have to mount a wireless relay in each unit in place of the existing thermostat.
I'm pretty sure there are digital thermostats for some units.
Here's one for the Cadet:

Hi, a7ecorsair, thanks, i think that is a possibility, if I change all the baseboarders to Cadet to fit the thermostats.

Hi, gregzoll, the link shows wired thermostats that I am trying to avoid

You are not going to find any wireless thermostats for 240 volt baseboard heaters. In order to be wireless, you have to have a wired module to begin with.
