Does anyone know if this is possible? We're installing some electric radiators in a garden room and want to be able to control them from the house, but many are Bluetooth only (not Wi-Fi).

Doesn't seem to be an easy answer online, does anyone know if you can you control a Bluetooth device over Wi-Fi?

There are Wi-Fi enabled radiators available.
Google "WiFi radiators."

Thanks all. Will try and focus on Wi-Fi enabled ones, albeit it does seem to limit the choice down quite a bit.

Bluetooth is a very odd connection choice for heaters. It removes any benefit of remote control if you have to be in the same vicinity.

That's a great shout. Hadn't thought about that. Thanks.
I was going to recommend a smart plug but held off as I think a lot of them have a reduced load capacity and I would have expected the radiators to be hard wired - also not sure how many of them retain their settings from a cold start.
