INTRODUCTION
This SKYTECH remote control system was developed to provide a safe, reliable, and user-friendly remote control system for gas
heating appliance. The system can be operated thermostatically or manually from the transmitter. The system operates on radio
frequencies (RF) within a 20-foot range using non-directional signals. The system operates one of 1,048,576 security codes that are
programmed into the transmitter at the factory; the remote receiver’s code must be matched to that of the transmitter prior to initial use.
Review COMMUNICATION SAFETY SECTION under TRANSMITTER section and THERMO SAFETY SECTION under REMOTE
RECEIVER section. These signal/temperature safety features shut down the fireplace system when a potentially unsafe condition exists.
TRANSMITTER
The transmitter operates on 2AAA-size 1.5V batteries. It is recommended that ALKALINE
batteries always be used for longer battery life and maximum operational performance.
IMPORTANT: New or fully charged batteries are essential for proper operation of the
multi-function transmitter.

ADDITIONAL PROGRAMMING OPTIONS SWING TEMPERATURE DIFFERENTIAL
The thermo-transmitter operates the fireplace system
whenever the ROOM TEMPERATURE varies a certain number
of degrees from the SET TEMPERATURE. This variation is
called the “SWING” or TEMPERATURE DIFFERENTIAL. The
normal operating cycle of a fireplace system may be 2-4 times
per hour depending on how well the room or home is insulated
from the cold or drafts. A smaller “swing number” increases
the number of cycles so the room temperature is more
constant. A larger “swing number” decreases the number of
cycles, which saves energy, in most cases. The factory setting
for the “swing number” is 2. This represents a temperature
0
0
variation of +/- 2 F (1 C) between SET temperature and
ROOM temperature which determines when the fireplace will
be activate. The “SWING” number values are:
0

MANUAL CHECK OF “SWING” OR TEMPERATURE DIFFERENTIAL
0
The operation of the factory set “THERMO SWING” can be checked by adjusting the SET TEMP 2 F above or below the room
temperature. This will cause the system to turn ON or OFF. Normally the system will only respond to temperature changes every two
minutes. Manually changing the SET temperature will activate the system in less than 10 seconds. If the “SWING” is changed, then a
0
new room temperature differential will respond. Factory setting of SWING temperature is 2 F.

the “SWING” setting has been changed from the factory setting (2 F /1 C), then thermo-cycling will activate at the new setting of the
“SWING” number.
MANUAL CHECK OF THERMO OPERATION
0
The operation of the Thermo setting can be checked on demand by adjusting the SET temperature 2 F above or below the room
temperature, which will cause the system to turn ON or OFF, respectively. Normally, however, the system will only respond to
temperature changes every two minutes. NOTE: if “SWING” number has been changed, then activation will occur at the new “SWING”
setting.

TRANSMITTER
OPERATING SAFETY MONITORS: SYSTEMS SHUTDOWN
The SKYTECH remote control operates on RF (radio frequency) signals that are sent by the TRANSMITTER (remote) to the
RECEIVER that operates the appliance. It is recommended that the TRANSMITTER always be located within the 20 foot operating
range, preferably in the same room in which the appliance is located.
THERMO UPDATING FEATURE –TRANSMITTER – (T/S –TX)
This SKYTECH remote control has a THERMO UPDATING Feature built into its software. The THERMO UPDATING Feature operates
in the following manner, but only in the THERMO and PROGRAM MODES:
The transmitter normally reads the ROOM temperature every 2 minutes checking the ROOM temperature against the SET temperature
it sends a signal to the receiver.

COMMUNICATION – SAFETY – TRANSMITTER – (C/S – TX)
This SKYTECH remote control has a COMMUNICATION –SAFETY function built into its software. It provides an extra margin of safety
when the TRANSMITTER is out of the normal 20 foot operating range of the receiver.
The COMMUNICATION – SAFETY feature operates in the following manner, in all OPERATING MODES – ON/ ON THERMO/ ON
TIMER.
At all times and in all OPERATING MODES, the transmitter sends an RF signal every fifteen (15) minutes, to the receiver,
indicating that the transmitter is within the normal operating range of 20 feet. Should the receiver NOT receive a transmitter
signal every 15 minutes, the IC software, in the RECEIVER, will begin a 2-HOUR (120-minute) countdown timing function. If
during this 2-hour period, the receiver does not receive a signal from the transmitter, the receiver will shut down the appliance
being controlled by the receiver. The RECEIVER will then emit a series of rapid “beeps” for a period of 10 seconds. Then
after 10 seconds of rapid beeping, the RECEIVER will continue to emit a single “beep” every 4 seconds until a transmitter
MODE
Button is pressed to reset the receiver. The intermittent 4-second beeping will go on for as long
As there is power from the thermopile.
To “reset” the RECEIVER and operate the appliance, you must press the MODE button on the
transmitter. The word ON must display on the LCD screen. By turning the system to ON, the
COMMUNICATION -SAFETY operation is overridden and the system will return to normal
operation depending on the MODE selected at the transmitter. The COMMUNICATION –
SAFETY feature will reactivate should the transmitter be taken out of the normal operating
range.

REMOTE RECEIVER
The remote receiver operates on power from the thermopile. It is recommended that the thermopile voltage with the main burner OFF
be no less than 450 millivolts for proper microprocessor performance. IMPORTANT: It is essential that proper voltage from the
thermopile be maintained for proper operation of the remote receiver.
The remote receiver houses the microprocessor that responds to commands from the transmitter to control system operation. It emits
one beep when it receives an ON or OFF command manually, but no beep when cycling on and off automatically in THERMO mode.
The remote receiver has a 3-position slide switch for selecting the MODE of operation: ON/REMOTE/OFF
•
•
•
•
With the slide switch in the ON position (toward the LEARN button), the system
will remain on until the slide switch is placed in the OFF or REMOTE position.
With the slide switch in the REMOTE position (centered), the system will only
operate if the remote receiver receives commands from the transmitter.
With the slide switch in the OFF position (away from the LEARN button), the
system is off.
It is suggested that the slide switch be placed in the off position if you will
be away from your home for an extended period of time. If the remote
receiver is mounted out of children’s reach, placing the slide switch in the
OFF position also functions as a safety “lock-out” by both turning the system
off and rendering the remote receiver inoperative.

THERMO- SAFETY FEATURE – RECEIVER (T/S –RX)
This SKYTECH remote control has a THERMO- SAFETY feature that is built into the system’s RECEIVER. This feature is
temperature- activated and provides an extra margin of safety when the RECEIVER is operating where ambient temperatures exceed
0
160 F degrees inside the receiver case.
The THERMO-SAFETY feature, in the RECEIVER, operates in the following manner, when the appliance is in operation.
The receiver is thermally protected from extreme heat conditions. Heat can have negative effect on the operation of the receiver’s
microprocessors.

When the ambient temperature at the THERMISTOR, inside the receiver case, reaches 160 F, the THERMISTOR will automatically
shut the appliance down and the RECEIVER will begin emitting a series of 2 “beeps”, every 4 seconds. When the ambient
0
0
temperature, at the RECEIVER, drops between 150 F and 160 F, the user can reactivate the appliance by pushing the MODE button
on the transmitter. The word ON must display on the LCD screen. When the MODE button is pressed to ON, the THERMISTOR
“resets” itself and the fireplace will begin operating again. However, the “beeping” will continue, if the ambient temperature remains
0
0
between 150 F and 160 F. This “beeping” alerts the user that the RECEIVER should be repositioned so the ambient temperature
0
drops below 150 F.
0
When the temperature drops below 150 F, the “beeping” will cease, providing the user has “reset” the THERMISTOR by pushing the
0
MODE button to ON to operate the appliance, either manually or thermally. Allow sufficient time for the receiver to cool below 150 F,
and then press MODE button to stop beeping.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
This remote control system must be installed exactly as outlined in these instructions. Read all instructions completely before
attempting installation. Follow instructions carefully during installation. Any modifications of the SKYTECH remote control or any of its
components will void the warranty and may be pose a fire hazard.
Do not connect any gas valve to 110-120VAC power. Consult gas appliance manufacturer’s instructions and wiring schematics for
proper placement of all wires.
The following wiring diagrams are for illustration purpose only. Follow instructions from manufacturer of gas valve and/or electronic
module for correct wiring procedures. Improper installation of electric components can cause damage to electronic gas valve and
remote receiver.
fire-parts.com
HEARTH MOUNT INSTALLATION
The remote receiver is be placed on the fireplace hearth or under the fireplace, behind the control access panel due to the connections
to the TH, TP, & TH/TP terminals on the gas valve. PROTECTION FROM EXTREME HEAT IS VERY IMPORTANT. Position where
0
the ambient temperature inside the receiver case does not exceed 160 F.
NOTE: The remote receiver will only respond to the transmitter when the 3-position slide button
on the remote receiver is in the REMOTE position. If the system does not respond to the battery
transmitter on initial use, see MATCHING SECURITY CODES
WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
A qualified electrician or a gas technician who is familiar with the gas appliance and gas valves that will be operated by this remote
should install the remote control system. Incorrect wiring connections WILL cause damage to the gas valve and may also damage the
remote receiver.
WIRING MILLIVOLT VALVES ONLY
(WILL NOT OPERATE ON ELECTRONIC SPARK IGNITION SYSTEMS)
The remote receiver is connected to the TH, TP, & TH/TP terminals on the millivolt gas valve. Connect the (3) 18” gauge stranded wires
from the remote receiver to the gas valve. These (3) wires are marked TH, (Black Wire) TP, (Red Wire) and TH/TP (White Wire)
Note: The RED wire from the thermopile must match up with the RED wire from the 3301PBE on the (TP) terminal of the gas valve. The
WHITE/YELLOW wire from the thermopile must match up with the WHITE wire from the 3301BE on the (TH/TP) terminal of the gas
valve. The reason for this is the 3301PBE is polarity based. These changes will make the gas valve and the thermopile match the
3301BE.

the gas valve on and off based on input signals. A thermostat’s input signals are
different temperatures. The remote receiver’s input signals come from the
transmitter.

MILLIVOLT VALVES
Light your gas appliance following the lighting instructions that came with the appliance. Confirm that the pilot flame is on; it must be in
operation for the main gas valve to operate.
Note: Always check for any gas leaks and follow all the instructions from the manufacturer of the appliance on the start up
procedures of the appliance.
1.
Allow the thermopile to completely heat up, for at least 5 minutes. (Note: If you have a Vent free product, you may want to allow a
longer heat up time, up to 10 minutes.
2.
Once the thermopile has heated up, turn the main valve knob from the PILOT position to the ON position.
3.
To activate the power going to the remote control receiver from the thermopile you will need to PUSH and HOLD the System
Energize button on the receiver for a minimum of 60 seconds before releasing the button. This will start the process of converting
millivolts from the thermopile into DC volts required to operate the receiver. This will continue for as long as the thermopile is in
operation.
4.
Use the transmitter of the remote control to activate the main burner of the appliance.
5.
Slide the 3-position button on the remote receiver to the ON position. The main gas flame (i.e., the fire) should ignite.
6.
Slide the button to OFF. The flame should extinguish (the pilot flame will remain on).
7.
Slide the button to REMOTE (the center position), and then press the MODE button on the transmitter to change the system to ON.
The main gas flame should ignite.
8.
Press the MODE button on the transmitter to change the system to OFF. The flame should extinguish (the pilot flame will remain
on).
9.
Press the MODE button on the transmitter to change the system to THERMO. Advance the SET temperature on the transmitter to
0
0
a temperature of a least 2 F (1 C) above the ROOM temperature displayed on the LCD screen. With this manual setting, the
0
0
normal thermostatic cycle is overridden and the system flame will ignite. Set the SET temperature to at least 2 F (1 C) below the
room temperature and the system flame will extinguish in a few seconds. Thereafter, it should continue to cycle to on and off
thermostatically approximately every two minutes as the ROOM temperature changes, but only when the temperature differential
0
0
0
between ROOM and SET temperatures differ at least 2 F (1 C). The 2 F differential is the factory setting.

Note: 3301P BE system will need to be re-energized every
time the pilot light is turned to the OFF position or the pilot
light goes out for any reason. This is done by depressing
and holding the ENERGIZER BUTTON for minimum of 60
seconds.

TIMER
The countdown timer will operate in either the manual ON or THERMO mode. Once the appliance is in an operating mode, set the
countdown timer to turn off in 15 minutes. The timer function will allow operation to continue until the countdown “time” on the LCD
screen expires. After 15 minutes elapses, the system should turn OFF.
If you have any problems with operation, recheck you connections and ensure transmitter batteries are fully charged. If no problem is
found, contact the dealer where you purchased your appliance/remote control.
GENERAL INFORMATION
LEARNING TRANSMITTER TO RECEIVER
fire-parts.com
Each transmitter uses a unique security code. It will be necessary to press the LEARN button on the receiver to accept the transmitter
security code upon initial use, if batteries are replaced, or if a replacement transmitter is purchased from your dealer or the factory. In
order for the receiver to accept the transmitter security code, be sure the slide button on the receiver is in the REMOTE position; the
receiver will not LEARN if the slide switch is in the ON or OFF position. The LEARN button in located on the front face of the receiver;
inside the small hole labeled LEARN. Using a small screwdriver or end of a paperclip gently press and release the black LEARN button
inside the hole. When you release the LEARN button the receiver will emit an audible “beep”. After the receiver emits the beep press
the transmitter MODE button and release. The receiver will emit several beeps indicating that the transmitter’s code has been accepted
into the receiver
The microprocessor that controls the security code matching procedure is controlled by a timing function. If you are unsuccessful in
matching the security code on the first attempt, wait 1-2 minutes before trying again – this delay allows the microprocessor to reset its
timer circuitry – and try up to two or three more times.
THERMO FUNCTION
When the transmitter is in the THERMO mode, it should be kept away from direct sources of heat such as fireplaces, incandescent
lighting, and direct sunlight. Leaving the transmitter in direct sunlight, for example, will cause its heat-sensing diode to read the room
temperature higher than it actually is; if in THERMO mode, it may not turn on the appliance even if the ambient ROOM temperature is
below the SET temperature.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
Should you encounter problems with your fireplace system, the problem may be with the fireplace itself or it could be with the
SKYTECH remote control. Review the fireplace manufacturer’s operation manual to make sure all connections are properly made.
Then check the operation of the SKYTECH remote in the following manner:
1.
Check connections from the receiver to the control valve for good positive connections. (Move the slide switch on the receiver to
the ON position if the appliance operates this will confirm that the wiring connections should be good).
2. Check for power from the thermopile to the receiver the voltage with the main burner OFF be no less than 450 millivolts. (Press the
learn button on the receiver if there is a beep sound from the receiver this will confirm there is power to the receiver from the
thermopile).
3. Be sure the transmitter’s batteries are properly installed and that the battery output is 2.5 V or more.
4. Check to make sure the transmitter is communicating with the receiver.
•
If the receiver beeps when the MODE button is depressed on the transmitter they are communicating.
•
If the receiver does not beep when the MODE button is depressed on the transmitter, you will need to teach the receiver the
code of the transmitter. This is done by holding the LEARN button down on the receiver and at the same time depress the

6.
MODE button on the transmitter. A change in the beeping pattern, at the receiver indicates the transmitter’s code has been
programmed into the receiver.
Make sure the transmitter is within the 15’-20’ range of the receiver.
Positioning of the receiver is important. If the receiver is “enclosed” in a metal surround, the operation of the receiver may be
affected as noted below. Reposition the receiver to improve operating range. If the receiver is “enclosed” in a metal surround, this
can:
•
Cause the RF signal to get lost and not communicate with the receiver.
•
Cause the working distance to be shorter than normal.
0
NOTE: A receiver located in an area, where the ambient temperature inside the case exceeds 160 F, will cause THERMOSAFETY feature to cut in, requiring you to reposition the receiver to stop the warning beeps, and to “reset” the receiver’s operation.
BATTERY LIFE
Life expectancy of alkaline batteries in the SKYTECH 3301P BE should be at least 12 months. Replace all batteries annually. When
the Transmitter no longer operates the receiver from a distance it did previously (i.e., the transmitter’s range has decreased) or the
remote receiver does not function at all, the batteries should be checked in the transmitter. The Transmitter should operate with as little
as 2.5 volts of battery power, measuring at the (2) 1.5-volt batteries.
