Wireless thermostats available in the United States and the United Kingdom that are compatible with certain Baxi boilers consist of a control panel, which is the actual thermostat, and a relay that directly affects the boiler after it receives signals from the control panel, as of March 2015.

Any wireless thermostat is potentially compatible with certain Baxi boilers and does not specifically have to be a wireless thermostat intended for use with a boiler or, more specifically, a Baxi boiler.
