The receiver design lends to functional installation into an outlet box that can be mounted "visible" to the remote from anywhere in the room. Typically this would be 4-5 ft above the floor. I'deally it is desirable to minimize exposed wires dangling around the gas stoves/fireplace, for cleaning, safety, and visual aesthetics. The wires are just long enough to reach the baseboard level after a nice installation on the wall, if they are routed directly below the receiver inside the the finished wall. A 2-wire extension with crimped on ends must be fabricated to connect the stove terminals over to the spade ends of the receiver pigtail. A trivial modification, considering the benefits for ease of battery monitoring and change out convenience of this remote design.
ProsQuick release of battery carrier for exchanging batteries. Indicator light for alerting need for battery exchange.
Cons"Extra long" wires translates to 36", and are not long enough for a tidy wall mounting of the receiver. An additional quick-disconnect pigtail is required to extend the supplied wire connections over to the stove. Supplied wires are only suitable for mounting the receiver on or below the stove somewhere to isolate it from risk of heat damage.
