Floor temp sensor that talks to zone valve

During a kitchen remodel I added a single loop of suspended raupex under the kitchen subfloor that ran on a non-zoned loop continuous with the garage unit heater (this was the original configuration).  I recently replaced my boiler and wired it cold fire (it was continuous circ before), which now leaves the radiant loop unheated unless either the water maker or one of the heat zones calls.  I know I need to zone the unit heater for winter time, which is no big deal, but I would also like to add a floor temp sensor from underneath (where I have access) that would also control the zone.  I would need something with about a 10 foot lead, and I would mount the temp unit in the garage (where the boiler is located).  What product would you recommend?  I don't need anything programmable, just a simple switch (like an aquastat with a lead) that will maintain the set temp. 



Suggestions?

    It's programable and can sense floor, air or a combination of both. Kitchen needs to be on its own zone...
