I installed after reading the directions. The setting on the received was on manual. I turned on the fireplace with the transmitter and it turned the fireplace on and off. They a few minutes later, the fireplace came back on? I turned it off and a few minutes later it came back on. So I turned the received in the off position. Need help! Thanks

The representative I spoke to was very professional and courteous. He helped me determine exactly what type of remote unit I needed to replace my existing one since it was about 20 years old.

This is a simple remote so you don't have to try and figure it out. Very intuitive and worked right out of the box with no more then just setting the time.

I really like the services and the way the people handled my order and the fast service I received recently I would recommend your company to all my family and friends

It was easy to install - had a bit of difficulty getting the remote to sync w/ the thermostat - but the online chat folks were AMAZING to walk me through some troubleshooting - when it seemed as though it was not going to work, the online person immediately said she would send out a replacement - no questions asked. But being hard-headed, I kept trying & after a few more tries, it synced - and it worked perfectly! I contacted the online chat folks again to cancel the order - they were gracious in their remarks rather than implying that I may have been the problem & not the remote :-) Overall, a good experience!!

This worked smoothly with my existing logs. Much better than the original remote unit I had before.

We love to be able to set the thermostat to the temperature we want and the gas logs will turn on and off to maintain that temperature. This remote control is a replacement for the remote we used for over 10 years. I wanted the same remote since we had such good service out of the first one.

This unit is not user friendly in the slightest. I program computers for a living and I couldn't figure this out. One of the first hurdles is finding out that you have to hold buttons down for 2 seconds for them to work, you cant just press the button. Second I still haven't got the auto shut off working.Terrible Product!
