FiresideFriend Wireless Fireplace Thermostat - TS/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 provides great ambience and warmth in your home.  Wouldn't it be nice to control your fireplace with a thermostat instead of an on/off switch?  The TS/R-2A adds the functionality of a wireless thermostat but can also be operated manually.  The thermostat comes with wall mount plate - but can also be mounted on standard electrical junction box.

The TS/RS-A remote control thermostat 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 1,048,576 security codes that are programmed into the transmitter at the factory.


  • All battery operated - R.F.
  • Wireless thermostat or manual ON/Set/OFF operation, surface mount
  • Large LCD screen displays room and set temperature in °F and °C
  • 1,048,576 security codes
  • All batteries included
  • Receiver with snap-on wall plate and wires with connectors
  • Receivers will learn up to TWO additional ON/OFF transmitters


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 transmitter runs on 2 3V button cell CR2032 batteries (included)
The receiver runs on (4) AA alkaline batteries (included)
Remote transmitter dimensions - 3 7/8" x 2 1/8" x 5/8"
