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!
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?
I have a Gas Insert from Continental Fireplaces, model CDIZC-N - Natural Gas.
Looking to replace Thermostat Receiver & Remote.
Is there a specific make & model I would need to compliment the Gas Insert mentioned previously?
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!
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?
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.
What is the difference between a RCMT vs a RCST remote?
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.
