Napoleon’s eFIRE app will revolutionize the way you use your fireplace. We have cracked the code and present to you the first fireplace to be controlled by Bluetooth, using an app on your smartphone. As soon as you launch the app, it’s startlingly easy to use. The intuitive interface knows just what you want, and with easy toggle sliders you can control everything on your fireplace from the flame height, blower and now LED lights.
Imagine having total control of a room’s ambiance with just a couple of gestures. Full mastery of your ember bed allows you to create every imaginable color, selecting the one that fits the mood, or the décor with ease, the simple color wheel tool swiftly scrolls through the colors. Or set the mood with one touch. Ember Bed Mode instantly creates ambiance with the look of a banked fire, softly glowing. Get the atmosphere without the heat, you can even cycle through, and set the color without the fire even being on.
Additionally the Napoleon’s eFIRE app has all of the same functions as a traditional fireplace remote; by controlling ON/OFF, flame height and blower speed. Now you can personalize the experience with your smartphone by controlling the following options
- Flame height
- Blower speed (if equipped)
- Programmable Auto OFF timer
- LED Multi color Lights providing over 16,000,000 different colors
- LED color wheel to pick any color
- LED cycle mode to cycle between the most vibrant Red, green and blue colors
- LED Emberbed mode which best represents a real burning Ember bed
- Quick access to multiple fireplaces equipped with Napoleon Bluetooth

Doesn’t control all features
I can turn the fireplace on or off from app that’s about it. If I turn on the nightlight or led lights from the remote then I can change the color or dim the nightlight but cannot fully control the fireplace. I don’t know why the app can not control all the features it is supposed to.
Cool but limited.
Works great and is really cool, just wish all of us could take advantage of it - only one Bluetooth device can be connected at a time, which is really limiting in a family household. Disappointing - much cheaper household appliances allow multiple Bluetooth devices at once. Waaaay past time to update the technology for units this expensive.
Edit: Even the unit’s own remote won’t work if there is another Bluetooth device paired. So, if I pair my phone and go upstairs, my wife can’t use the remote unless I disconnect.
Edit 2: After more time with it, bumping it up to four stars. It easily switches between devices and the new device connecting picks up the previous status seamlessly. For example, if my wife turns it on and sets things and then leaves or turns off her app or phone, I can open the app and connect easily and it automatically sets to where she left it.
The app is crazy cool and the preferred way to operate the fireplace because I can’t figure out the remote that comes with it. Small note: the initial password is 0000. Was hard for me to find that in the docs.
Edit: as other reviewer said, you can’t have multiple devices connected at the same time. Also would really love to find a way to connect to HomeKit so I can add it to my scenes and home automation.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
