    from Monterey, VA asked:
    November 19, 2017
    I have an Empire Heritage Direct Vent Stove, model DVP30CA30MP-2. Is this the proper model to control my temperature remotely with a thermostat? Does the unit include everything to complete installation, eg. receiver, etc.? Is professional installation required (seems to be the case...)? Thank you.
    1 Answer
    This is indeed the correct thermostatic remote for your unit. It will include the remote and receiver required for installation and I would suggest having a professional wire the remote to your gas valve.

    Does the switch on the stove itself have to be in the remote position for the remote controlled thermostat to work properly?
    1 Answer
    It does indeed. By switching the unit to this position, the unit will look to the remote receiver to complete the circuit and activate the stove.

    Greg
    from Chicago, IL asked:
    February 17, 2014
    Can this remote adjust the flame output of the fireplace?
    1 Answer
    No, this remote features on/off and thermostat controls that will simply turn the burner on or off based on your command or the pre-set temperature. A fireplace or gas log set needs a modulating valve in order to have flame-height adjustment functionality, whereas this remote is for a standard millivolt valve with no such feature.

    Handy
    Handy little indulgence for our new fireplace!
    By Jeffrey from Westerville, Ohio on December 26, 2016

    No muss and no fuss!
    It doesn't get any easier than this! Push a button and there's fire, push a button and it's off. We haven't used the thermostatic function as yet but so far it works well in the On/Off mode.
    ProsNo fooling around with lighting the fireplace, just push a button on the remote. Easy for my wife to use.
    ConsIt seems a bit pricey for the convenience but if it holds up, it's probably worth it.

    Perfect Solution
    This was easy to install (under 5 minutes) and works exacty like it should. We needed a thermostat for the freestanding gas fireplace in our office to control the temp. This works awesome!
