    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!

    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.

    I would like to purchase a wall thermostat that could be wired in to my fireplace gas valve. I feel there would be less maintenance with this type of control. What thermostat would be compatible with my Comfort Flame propane gas fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Based on your need, I would suggest the Empire Wall Thermostat with Reed Switch - TMV which can be run to the gas valve using low voltage wire.

    Do any of your millivolt remote/thermostat combinations have a receiver that doesn't require batteries? Our current wall thermostat is wired to the fireplace and sends enough signal through the wire--the wall thermostat is battery powered. Is there a remote/thermostat that can tap into the wires and needs batteries just for the thermostat/remote?

    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 need a remote for a Gibson Living Sydney 50 Log recessed fireplace. Can you help?
    1 Answer
    We are not a Gibson Living dealer and do not have access to any of their product literature to determine the correct remote to offer. I recommend confirming the correct remote replacement through contacting this manufacturer directly.

    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.

    What is the difference between a RCMT vs a RCST remote?
    1 Answer
    The RCMT remote is an on/off model that includes a delay timer and temperature display. The RCST has most of the same functions but replaces the time with a programmable thermostat function, allowing the remote to automatically cycle the appliance based on the programmed temperature set point.
