WiFi controlled Zone Valve Controller

Hello all,

I am in the process of figuring out our radiant heating system, which will have 5 zones. To control the zones I'd like to use WiFi controlled Zone Valve Controller, like the one in this presentation from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiEw8zgKFr4

AirPatrol SmartHeat system controls the actuators on the manifold and is via WiFi connected to thermostats, which are located in each zone. Unfortunately AirPatrol discontinued the product ...

Is there a similar product on the market: I would like to save thermostats wiring process with something like Taco zvc406 ...

much appreciated,

Gregor

    It can't be the thermostats that need the wifi, it has to be the zone panel?

    Hi Bob and 'HVACNUT'

    I checked HBX stuff and it seems very powerful. Their Sensorlinx (WiFi sensor connected to an actuator?) seems to be the closest to what I want. It seems it lets you see on your iPhone what the water temp in a specific zone is and using the app it lets you turn on/off the actuator. What I dont understand is how to control the actuator using a thermostat mounted on a wall of a room with that specific zone ...

    ps.'HVACNUT' - what I'm trying to find out is how to create a WiFi link between a thermostat and actuator. AirPatrol had a WiFi zvc-like controll box to enable such communication. Ideally, i'd like a WiFi powered actuator which talks to Nest (or any other WiFi powered thermostat)
