Do you want a smart electric fireplace with all the latest high tech features? The new Sideline Elite has realistic flames, 60 color combinations, a powerful heater, timer – and now you can control it with your smartphone!
These Electric Fireplaces are Ultra-Convenient & Easy to Install:
In addition to your smartphone, this Wi-Fi-enabled fireplace works with Alexa and Google Home as well. Lighting and putting out a fire has never been easier. Plus, you can set the built-in timer to automatically shut off the fireplace by itself.
Also don’t forget, you don’t have to deal with smoke, cleaning up ashes or continually buying wood. Electric fireplaces are clean-burning, so you don’t have to worry about emissions, venting or cleaning the flue.
Speaking of venting, Touchstone makes this fireplace insert really simple to install. And because it’s electric, it doesn’t come with the costly venting requirements of gas or wood-burning hearths.
Simply recess the fireplace into a wall for a clean built-in look. Some people construct a framework around the unit that they finish with stone, tile or wood planks to create a larger focal point in the room.
The firebox comes hardwire-ready, but you can also plug it into a standard electrical wall outlet. In fact, you can even hang this unit on the wall instead of recessing it.
Note: Alternatively, you can get a 50″ electric fireplace WITH a surround mantel. Therefore, you don’t have to cut a hole in your wall or build a framework around your firebox to achieve that finished look.
This all-in-one package includes both the fireplace and surround mantel, AND you can plug it into a standard 120V outlet (that you can conveniently hide behind the fireplace).
WiFi Connectivity & Device Compatibility:
The Touchstone Sideline Elite Smart Electric Fireplace links up with your home Wi-Fi, working well with Alexa and Google Home. It offers seamless compatibility for convenient voice control.
The Wi-Fi connection is generally reliable, but occasional network hiccups may occur, typical for any Wi-Fi reliant device. As a smart fireplace, it’s designed to integrate smoothly into your smart home setup, adding both comfort and convenience to your living space.
Is a Smart Electric Fireplace Easy to Use? Operating the Touchstone Sideline Elite is simple and user-friendly. You can control it via a dedicated mobile app, allowing remote operation from your smartphone or tablet. In addition, it seamlessly integrates with voice command systems like Alexa and Google Home for hands-free control, enhancing your convenience and comfort.
Is a Smart Electric Fireplace Energy Efficient? How Much Does it Cost to Run?
The Sideline Elite Electric Fireplace is energy-efficient, consuming about as much energy as a standard light bulb in the flame-only setting. Depending on how much you use it and the energy rate in your area, typical usage costs run between 8 to 23 cents per hour. You can calculate your fireplace usage costs here.
In addition, it offers adjustable heat settings, allowing you to manage temperatures for energy savings. Moreover, it includes a 750 watt energy-saving mode to further optimize efficiency and reduce power consumption while providing cozy warmth.
Get More for Your Money with Touchstone Smart Electric Fireplaces:
Just like all Sideline Elite electric fireplaces, this unit has the premium lifelike multi-tone flames that sway and flicker. The firebox also appears to have a real glowing ember bed that gives even more dimension the fire.
However, these “Smart Fireplaces” now allow you to conveniently control your fireplace using your smart phone, Alexa or Google Home. That said, you still can control the fire with the included remote control or the discreet control panel located on the front of the unit.
Furthermore, the frame size is smaller than older models, making the firebox area larger. In other words, the fireplace appears larger and more impressive. In my opinion, it’s like getting more fireplace for your money.
On top of that, you get more color options. For example, both the flames and the glass crystals have their own light settings independent of each other. Therefore, you can choose from 60 different color combinations (and flame speed and brightness) to set the mood for your evening.
Note: The Sideline Elite does include heat, which comes out of the top front vent. You can heat a 400 square foot room or enjoy the flames without using the heater.
