FiresideFriend Wireless Fireplace Timer - TM/R-2A

This product is designed to work with millivolt valve (RN) or electronic ignition (EN) fireplaces.  If your fireplace uses a simple on/off switch on the wall - this unit will likely work for you. 

A gas fireplace adds great ambience and warmth to your home - but did you ever forget to turn off the fireplace?  With this handy timer - you can turn on your fireplace for 30, 60, or 120 minutes.  Once the timer interval is complete - the fireplace will turn off and you won't have to worry!  The timer can be mounted remotely (within 20 feet) of the fireplace switch or fireplace and comes with an attractive wall-mount plate.

The TM/R-2A remote control timer was developed to provide a safe, reliable and user-friendly remote control system for gas fireplaces. This all battery system operates independently of household current. The system operates on radio frequencies with nondirectional signals.  This remote control system was developed to provide safe, reliable, and user-friendly remote control system for gas heating appliances. The system can be operated manually from the transmitter. The system operates on one of 65,536 security codes that are programmed into the transmitter at the factory.


  • All battery operated - R.F.
  • 4-button timer with 30/60/120 minute settings - as well as OFF button to end timing interval
  • All batteries and wall clip included
  • Receiver with learn function, snap-on wall plate and wires with connectors


The easiest installation involves replacing your existing wall switch with the included receiver module (see diagram below).  This done by removing the cover plate on existing on/off switch, removing switch, and attaching low voltage wiring to the receiver wiring block.  The receiver then nests inside the junction box where the old switch used to be.  The remote receiver can also be placed on the fireplace hearth or under the fireplace, behind the control access panel.  We find that the wall mount installation is the easiest option for a homeowner.

The timer runs on (2) 3-Volt button cell CR-2032 batteries (included)
The receiver runs on (4) AA alkaline batteries (included)
Operating frequency: 303-875 MHz
Remote Transmission Range: 20 feet
