Any "smart" thermostats that function like Thermguard

So the extreme cold in the NE really have me paranoid about my boiler pipes. I currently have a p52i that I heat the whole house with but there are some pipes on outside walls in the basement that are not benefiting from this method of heating.

I currently have 3 each building36 wifi thermostats--2 heats zones and 1 AC zone. I am having to go in the app several times a day and bump the heat up to get the boiler going. Obviously this is not ideal. Options in the app/website are not ideal. You can set up to 4 heating cycles per day and they are for 30 min each minimum. No where near the convenience of the "cycling" that the thermguard allows.

Are there any wifi/smart thermostats out there that will allow the flexibility of the thermguard?

Same situation here in SE Mass with this sub zero freeze.. Running a Harman 52i insert and NOT using my oil forced hot water 6 zone burner at all. Looked at the Thermaguard but instead of spending the $, did a simple fix.
Utilized a $4 manual AC timer having 48 on off settings. Jumped it to the circulator contacts and switched each zone valve to constant manual open.
Now I can set the times to any combo (every 1 1/2 hour on for 30 min) and water circulates thru all zones with no freeze up. Took 10
mins to complete.
