Adjusting the Temperature

One of the convenient features offered by the iFlame App is the ability to easily adjust the temperature of your fireplace. Once you have connected the app to your fireplace using the Mertik GV60 remote control, you can effortlessly set the desired temperature.

To begin, locate and select your fireplace on the main screen of the iFlame App. Here, you will find a range of functions including on/off, timer, settings, light, fan, and flame.

To modify the temperature:

  1. Simply tap on the temperature display and use the up and down arrows to set your desired temperature. 
  2. As you make adjustments, the remote control will respond by increasing or decreasing the temperature accordingly.
