Connecting your fireplace to the internet

Fireplace Remote 

Even though you might not use the physical remote that comes with the fireplace, it has to have working batteries and must be in the room with the fireplace (for example on the wall, on the bookshelf, etc). This is because the remote is the thermostatic control for the fireplace and is used to measure the room temperature.Smart Heat Remote Role

Smart Heat lets you control your Escea fireplace in three ways:

1) Smart Heat Online

Visit the Escea SMART HEAT ONLINE WEBSITE (, create an account, and register your fireplace. This account is needed to operate your fireplaces remotely via the website and via the Smart Heat app when outside of your home wi-fi network.

Online Registration

Wireless Control

Now you can add a fireplace by entering your fireplace’s serial number (e.g. 60003) and a 4-digit PIN number, both of which can be found under the batteries in your fireplace remote. You can now give your fireplace a name (e.g. "lounge fireplace").

Online Control

Wireless Control

After registration is completed, you will be able to log in from any device connected to the internet. Using Smart Heat Online you can view your Escea fireplaces, turn them on and off, and view their temperature settings. When you turn on the fireplace you are sending a signal to start your fireplace using the temperature setting currently set on the physical remote.

2) Smart Heat App

We always have our phones handy, so there's no easier way to operate your fireplace than via smartphone app.

Download app

Download the Smart Heat app from the App Store or Google Play.

Add your fireplace

Add your fireplace

Give your fireplace a name and log in with your 4-digit PIN number. You can find your fireplace’s serial number (e.g. 60003) and a 4-digit PIN number under the batteries in your fireplace remote.

Inside Home App Control

Escea Smart Heat

Within the range of your wi-fi home network you can control the temperature, flame effects, and fan mode of your fireplace, along with setting a timer to control when your fire turns on and off - all straight from your smartphone.

Outside Home App Control

When outside of your wi-fi home network,  tap “Remote Fireplaces” and log in with your Smart Heat Online details. You can now turn the fireplace on and off, and change the temperature. Always tap “send” to send the signal straight to your fireplace at home.

3) Home Automation System

The Escea Smart Heat controller is compatible with most home management systems. Escea fireplaces have a basic interface for home automation systems. A pair of wire connections are provided for the installer to fit a relay, controlled by the automation system, that connects or disconnects the two wires. When the wire connection is closed the fireplace starts, and when the two wires are subsequently disconnected the fireplace shuts down.

NOTE: The physical remote control is still the thermostatic control for the fireplace, and it will operate on the temperature that is set on the remote.
