The remote controls that we show here will only work with gas logs or fireplaces with a millivolt valve. Also gas stoves with a millivolt valve. Please check your owner's manual. You can use these remotes as replacements for your original when they have outlived their usefulness.
Remote controls have become very popular especially the basic On/Off Remote. It is simple and does what it is supposed to do - turn your fireplace or gas logs on and off. The wall mount receiver is easy to install but does require wire at least 18 gauge and be no longer than 20'. It mounts in a plastic switch box on the wall. Follow the instructions and in no time at all, you have a wall switch on/off remote. We have remotes that are only the on/off remote and will show the room temperature. Another popular model is the remotes with backlit touch screens. Some remotes will also have a timer feature and a child lock.
We also have On/Off Remotes that use 110V AC to work. Most fireplaces will have a wired electrical box under the floor of the fireplace. If the electric is out, just switch the receiver to "on" if you want the fire on or "off" if not.
