Yes! However, there is an operational priority (Pecking order) of the various ways to turn your fireplace ON or OFF. The highest priority goes to the ON/OFF switch located near the valve assembly. For example, if you have the fireplace is turned “ON” via this switch, it will negate the wall switch and ON/OFF feature of your remote control. Next, the wall switch takes priority over the remote control.
In other words, if the wall switch is in the “ON” position and the unit’s switch is in the “OFF” position, the remote control will not be able to turn the fireplace on or off. In general, for the remote to work, both the unit’s switch and the wall switch should be in the OFF position, or in the OFF and REMOTE position, respectively.
