Reading-only thermostat swap?

Hi folks! Our company is currently in a situation where there is a hotel/inn type setting. Around 20 rooms have individual thermostats. For various reasons we are looking to replace the individual room units with temp sensors ONLY while the controls are downstream (most likely at HVAC room). Would be even better if we could get a group (or all??) to one common control unit but not a deal-breaker. Still having 20 control modules downstream is fine. The biggest caveat is we are NOT interested in smart/Wi-Fi enabled system as we do not wish to rely on connectivity between room sensors and the control unit. Having a smart system that the control module can be adjusted/looked at is fine. However - we do NOT want to rely on wi-fi for HVAC command/rooms calling for heat. Want it to be so that if wi-fi completely fails - it is seamless to the system. Thanks for any advice!

    Honeywell Redlink wireless sensors are NOT wifi or smart sensors.
    They have nothing to do with wifi and aren't even close to the same frequency.
