Yup, I've seen the other temp level ones. I've also used some IoT stuff from SmartThings and other companies to automate some of my heaters on the boat before. The ThermoCube is a lot simpler and more reliable than those though, although the IoT stuff you can at least check on remotely to see how they're doing.

I'm definitely going to go the oil cooler route first for the time being and see how things go.
