Heating AquaStat for Hot Water Control

We have a hot water cylinder with a typical stat linked to a relay with a dial to set the maximum temperature.

Without OpenTherm we have to use the on/off hot water setting.

It would be a lot better to be able to replace this dumb unit with a tado unit (run from mains power as there is mains power at that unit) that acted with the app to turn the boiler on only when water dropped below a set temperature.

This would also allow us to reduce the temperature of the hot water to maybe 50C-55C for most of the week and do a sanitation 60C heat once per week.

It would also help with understandinghot water usage in the house (teenagers)..
