Can I have a hand-held remote control and a wall switch?
Yes! However, there is an operational priority (Pecking order) of the various ways to turn your fireplace ON or OFF. Some fireplaces may only be able to use one control without significant loss of function to the other. 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 units switch is in the “OFF” position, the remote control will not be able to turn the fireplace on or off. In either case, the RCT-MLT functions will work unless the "on- off" feature of the wall switch or fireplace switch is in the “ON” position.
