That feature is nice it could be replicated using a electric heater and a temperature controller , when the temp probe senses cold air it could be set to kick on a electric heater via its circuit to keep some heat output going threw defrost. It would at least add heat to the room during the period.

With that being said I ordered a inkbird 308 temperature controller that I will use this winter to control a ventilation fan and run a electric heater when the heat pump is in its off mode.

Doing it this way will allow the heat pump (crappy portable one) to be left at a lower setting to stave off defrost cycles in cold weather.
