We're about to put in a radiant heated floor in our new bathroom. We're using the Laticrete Stara_Heat system. They have their own WiFi controller. It's expensive - $200-$250. There are many other controllers out there - mostly clunky looking, some with Wifi, none that I see with Z-wave or other smart home technologies (other than a proprietary wifi-enabled app).
I was going to just go with the Laticrete controller, but I wanted to see what other considerations there were and if people had recommendations. Thanks.

I purchased the ECOsmart ECO 18 tankless water heater during one of their open box warehouse sales for a very cheap price. I’ve owned this unit for 2 weeks and installed this and upgraded my outdoor panel in one Saturday. I ran 3 runs of 8/2 with bare ground Romex on 3 40amp individual breakers. I planned to update to one of these units over a year ago, I work as a lineman and was able to run a 4/0 urd service to my home for a true 200 amp service I also upgraded my transformer for the “potential demand this unit would require 6months before installation.

Rheem RTE 13, we really like this water heater because it saved us on our electric bill. Capable of warming up to 1,300 square feet of living space and always providing us with enough hot water. Ultra-compact design for easy installation
