Thermostat

Is there such a thing as a portable thermostat ie a thermostat that could moved room to room?
My thermostat is located in the middle of the house and does a good job of providing a balance of the temp of the compete house. The issue is when I have people over, they mostly hang out in the room where the thermostat is located and the body heat will increase the temp of the space by 3 to 4 degrees higher then the thermostat is set at - which means the boiler isn’t going on for the rest of the house. I could increase the temp on the thermostat to turn the boiler on but the house would not be balanced any my guest in the thermostat room would be roasting. Any thought ?

    Like @Big Ed_4 said, Honeywell RedLink. It needs the Equipment Interface Module so it's not DIY unless you have experience with such things. It has a sub base so you can mount it or move it room to room.
