WiFi propane heater for camp

At my camp our heat source is a wood stove. This past fall I did get cable and internet from zitomedia. I want to find a wall mount propane heater that I can install a wifi thermostat on the wall . I'll leave the heat at 50 and just turn it up before we leave for the trip. The problem I'm having is that every wall mount heater I have found has a built in thermostat that only has a timer. I need one that has a remote thermostat that I can put a wifi thermostat on it from lowes/homedepot. Anyone else done this?

If I had a traditional ducted furnace, this wouldn't be a problem with the thermostat.

If you keep it on 50 , it should not take very long to heat up once you get there, probably while you are unloading the truck, however I don't know how big your camp is.......

We have one at camp.
The dial is numbered one thru five.(heat range)
On one this should keep your camp at 50.
You may need to experiment.
I don't believe there are any made with a remote controlled thermostat other than a propane fireplace.

Would'nt that use a lot of propane since the pilot for the heater will be constantly on? Is there a suchthing as a pilotless propane heater?
