Block heater timer with remote control option?

I am looking for a timer that can run a regular morning rotation in addition to being able to power on when required by remote. Winter is coming I have a massive diesel and she needs a hand in the cold.

Only thing I could find is this. http://www.amazon.ca/KAB-ENTERPRISE-LTD ... mer+remote

Sorry link button crashes safari.

Any other suggestions?

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

I've gone with a timer in the past, not aware of other options but it did its job!

I bought a 3 prong timer from Home Hardware, give it 2-3 hours before leaving and all is good.
They are also not very expensive and go on sale sometimes, i saw it on for $6 or similar a few weeks ago, but $39 is not bad if it works reliably and is CSA certified
In Japan, the hand can be used like a knife.
But this method doesn't work with a tomato...

Wemo does not aear to be outdoor rated and even covered not sure how it would work in cold temps. It would have to operate -40

Quentin I am looking for remote as well as timer. My life is not as predictable. I guess I could technically just have a timer and over ride when I want to physically going Out there.

Why would it be outdoor? I keep mine inside garage.

This is what I got:
