Wi-Fi TRV with remote thermostat

Does anyone know of a smart TRV which can be linked to a remote wi-fi room thermostat for temperature control rather than using a sensor in the TRV head? I've seen loads of 'smart' TRVs but as far as I can see they all sense the temperature at the head, presumably giving the same limitations as a not smart TRV.
I know you can get TRVs with mechanical link to a sensor but they look a bit ugly.

Honeywell evohome, Drayton Wiser, Tado, all do smart heating including thermostats and trv heads.
Thanks for the reply, I looked at the Evohome for example and it looks to me as though the TRVs are sensing the room temperature, although perhaps I'm wrong. I'm looking for a TRV that can be controlled by a separate thermostat away from the TRV.
So what about standard TRV’s that sense the area around them and using a Nest or Hive?

I've always thought the main flaw with any TRVs is that they sense the air temperature right beside the radiator. If the thermostat was elsewhere in the room and was able to control the radiator valve remotely I would have thought it would work better. Especially in larger rooms.
