    September 26, 2021
    Does this control work for a vanguard vented propane fireplace modelbdv34na with two wires and is there a remote that increases the flame height?
    1 Answer
    This is compatible with your millivolt controlled fireplace, but unfortunately with a millivolt system no remote will be able to control flame height, simply on/off and/or thermostat control.

    from Brooklyn, MI asked:
    November 9, 2019
    I have an Acumen RX05. The battery box that runs to the stove corroded and does not function properly. What do I need to replace it?
    1 Answer
    A full replacement remote kit will be needed, as we do not sell just the receiver from Acumen's remote control receiver kits.  Acumen makes a few different remotes that utilized the RX05 receiver, so you would choose the replacement remote via the method of preferred control (basic on/off or on/off with thermostat).

    I have a Acumen 00-002121-00 fireplace remote which was dropped and no longer works. Can I get just a remote and will it be compatible with the receiver? I would need to hire someone to replace the whole unit. Thank you.
    1 Answer
    I'm not finding any information matching the part number you've provided, but we will only offer complete kits including both the remote and receiver. While we would not be able to match what we have to offer with only the part number of the remote, we will be able to offer replacement options with the manufacturer and model number of the fireplace or gas log set. To answer your question regarding paying a technician to replace the remote, this is not necessary in most cases as replacing a fireplace remote and receiver is fairly straightforward.

    Both my gas fire places, managed by Acumen Model: RX05, failed to work. Both battery boxes are also corroded. Since I am unable to google the exact model, is the RCK-I a good replacement?
    1 Answer
    The RCK-I would indeed be a suitable replacement for your remote.

    from Shermans Dale, PA asked:
    November 11, 2016
    Would this be a comparable replacement for the Acumen RX05?
    1 Answer
    This will indeed work as a direct replacement for any remote using the RCK-I receiver. If your remote is in fact a thermostat model, you will need the Acumen RCK-K Manual On/Off and Thermostat DC Remote Control Kit.

    Worked Great-Easy Installation
    Remote control worked well for 20yr old insert. It was easy to install and I only had to modify the connectors to work with my unit.
    Easy installation Had to remove the end connectors to work with my unit where I had to insert bare wires into the receiver.

    This replaced a broken remote controller. This replacement is a much better quality unit than the original. I am very happy with the product, the info provided on the website and the speed of delivery. The price was right also.
