I've been going through my cottage, replacing all of the old line voltage thermostats with Mysa ( In the main living room, however, there seems to be some sort of 2-wire low voltage control unit in play, it controls 4 separate baseboard heaters. The control unit is by Chromalox (it's quite old) and has the following information on it - IE30-394; Max Voltage 30VAC Type 2; 0.15 to 1 amps.

Is there a way to get another Smart Thermostat (preferable HomeKit compatible) to control these? A quick internet search found some references to 'Common Maker' devices, but I'm not sure if those apply in my case. Or am I into a more involved electrical job?

I have photos of the unit, but not sure how to attach them to this post.

Any guidance is appreciated - even if it's just to find a good local electrician to ask... :)
