i think the google nest is the only one that will do that. most others you have to be on the same network to control it

Are you looking for remote on/off control or thermostat control with remote on/off capability? If you are just looking to control the stove to turn on and off I did something a while back that I loved. I will be doing again on my new stove. Essentially I used a Belkin Wemo wall light switch and hooked it up to a relay that would control the stove. It gave me a wall switch to turn the stove on/off and well as the ability to use my phone (from anywhere) to turn it on and off. I also used it to set schedules so I could always have the stove running when I woke up and when I returned home from work.

Brian, curious, why did you use the wall light switch rather than the Wemo smart outlet? Didn't this entail additional wiring and outlet? Great idea either way. Thank you.
