The Napoleon F60 replaces the original F50 remote. The re-designed battery compartment latch combined with life cycle testing and stringent quality control process ensures 20,000 trouble free operations. In thermostat mode the transmitter will monitor the room temperature every 60 seconds and react as required. Every 15 minutes the transmitter will re-send a signal to verify the demand for heat to ensure the unit is still operating if the temperature has not yet reached the set point. Enjoy the convenience of a universal remote control for your stove.
