    Fireplace Remote Controls

    One of the many conveniences of a natural gas or electric fireplace is remote control! You can literally light your fireplace at the touch of a button. Picture it - you're sitting on the couch watching a movie as the sun sets. It's getting chilly, so what do you do? You grab the fireplace remote control and turn on the fire! Some of our most popular electric fireplace remotes are the Ambient RCST Standard Thermostat On/Off Remote Control and the SkyTech TM/R-2 4 Button Wireless Wall-Mounted Remote Control System.

    from Hauser, ID asked:
    February 21, 2018
    I have an Ambient TSFSC remote for a Majestic MLDV500PSC fireplace with signature command center and dual fans. The remote controls fireplace start/stop based on set temperature. The remote does not control the fans, because I believe, there's another add required (e.g. "Optional A/C Module"), which enables the remote to control the fans and fireplace lighting. (Not worth it to me to pay the $200 for the A/C module, as I pretty much leave the fan running on high all the time when the fireplace is lit anyway.) My main question here is, is there a programmable thermostat remote available that would be compatible with the milivolt "signature command center"? Ambient does not appear to provide this. I would like to schedule the fireplace to start and stop, much like a furnace thermostat, which it in effect is for us during some parts of winter. What's available? Thanks.
    1 Answer
    A thermostatic remote that would work for your unit without the SCSACM would be the Ambient TSST Touch Screen Hand-Held Thermostat Remote Control.

    Bought a house this year that has a Superior DT-600CMP gas insert. Unfortunately I did not receive a remote for the unit, but it does has the blower switch on the wall. Is there any particular remote that is needed for this unit, and if not what would be a basic remote to use for it if its not compatible with some of the "fancier" models? Thanks!
    1 Answer
    If it has a millivolt (standing pilot) valve then you can use the RCB Remote

    I'm looking for a battey back-up remote, in case of a power outage. I have a Lennnox Superior DT-500CMN fireplace.
    1 Answer
    The DT-500CMN was a standing pilot (millvolt) fireplace that would not cease operation in the event of a power failure. If any blower is installed and you are looking for this to function in the event of a power failure, no optional blower will function in the event of a power failure. If you are looking for a remote that is compatible with this fireplace, most all of the millivolt-compatible remote systems we offer are battery powered and will operate the burner flame in the event of a power outage.

    I need to know which remotes work with Majestic UVLC30?
    1 Answer
    Based on the information I was able to locate for your system, it appears that the valve was a standard millivolt control system. This means that a millivolt on/off remote such as the Acumen RCK-I Manual On/Off DC Remote Control Kit or the Acumen RCK-K Manual On/Off and Thermostat DC Remote Control Kit could be used for the application.

    October 15, 2016
    I own a Lennox Elite Series in-wall fireplace with propane feed, model number EDSTPM-2 (image #1). It was installed in 2002. It is fitted with an Acumen model RX05 receiver box (image #2) and an Acumen model FDC-503 remote transmitter with thermostat (image #3). These accessory parts are original equipment. I believe the Acumen FDC-503 is functioning well. Please recommend an easily installed replacement for the Acumen RX05. Thank you.
    1 Answer
    The original manufacturer of this control system is Acumen. The direct replacement remote kit for your unit is the Acumen RCK-K Manual On/Off and Thermostat DC Remote Control Kit. This is essentially the same remote and receiver. I'm afraid that we are not able to procure just the receiver for this original kit any longer.

    I have a gas fireplace and the remote transmitter (Acumen Model RX07) was damaged by water in the lower level of my home. The remote is a Lennox Model No TX-H. Do you have a transmitter that will work with it?
    1 Answer
    After researching this remote, it is no longer available. There is an option that will work, but this will not provide the flame adjustment feature like the RX-07. Per Acumen, the Acumen RCK-D Manual On/Off and Thermostat AC Remote Control Kit is their recommendation.

    I have some friends moving into a home that has two propane gas fireplaces that do not have any remote controls on them. They are older folks, and I'd love to give them an option to not have to get down on the floor to start their fireplaces, if I can. Can you tell me if you have any on/off remote controls that will work with these fireplaces? They are Desa HDCFTP & Desa VFM18LP.
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, the HDCFTP does not have the option of a remote control. The VFM18LP, however, can use a millivolt remote control, such as the Empire Battery-Operated Remote Control - FRBC.

    I am looking for a replacement for my fireplace remote model Ambient Model RCT. Do you carry something like this?

    My daughter wants a thermostat with a remote control for her pellet stove. It is a Traditions T300P and it has terminals on the back labeled thermostat with two connectors. There is a metal bridge between them right now. I put my digital volt meter on one to ground and it measured 10 volts AC. How do I know which remote control will work with her stove?
    1 Answer
    Judging by the installation instructions for your pellet stove, the jumper wire could simply be removed from the thermostat terminal block and replaced with the Ambient RCST Standard Thermostat On/Off Remote Control. You will need to ensure the stove is disconnected from the outlet before this is done.

    I have an Acumen FDC-504 remote control that I am trying to replace. What are the differences among the different Acumen remotes?
    1 Answer
    The primary differences between the Acumen models is simply the features which the remote can control. Your model should provide on/off functionality, as well as a built in thermostat. If you are needing to replace your remote, I would suggest the Acumen RCK-K as a direct replacement.

    I have a Travis Industries Model 35 fireplace (manufactured in 2003) that I would like to install a thermostat too.

I'm thinking a wireless thermostat would be good and was trying to find an appropriate one on your website. Do you have any recommendations?

    The TRW can be installed in this fashion as it is battery powered and would only require wiring from the receiver to the rocker switch on your appliance.

    From the information I found for your model, it appears a fairly common SIT gas valve is used with it. A couple of popular remotes that will work are the SkyTech 1001 Millivolt On/Off Hand Held Remote Control, which is a basic on/off handheld remote and the SkyTech 3301 Hand-Held Millivolt Thermostatic Remote Control with LCD Display, which adds thermostat control.

    The days of lighting a fire with kindling or newspaper are long gone. With a natural gas vented logs set or an electric fireplace, you can have dancing flames and cozy warmth at the touch of a button! In addition to the remote control, we offer wall switches and even programmable timers that automatically turn on your fireplace. The programmable timer is a great option if you want your living area nice and cozy before you set foot out of bed in the morning or before you get home from work in the evening! When you're searching for a remote or a remote replacement, make sure the one you purchase is compatible with your fireplace. Many of our fireplace remotes are compatible with multiple fireplaces. However, there are some remote controls that are designed to work with a specific model or brand. This is usually more of a problem when customers are searching for a replacement remote or looking to get an extra remote control. Be sure to read about the compatibility of the remote control that you plan to purchase for your natural gas or electric fireplace.
