Overview

The Touchstone Sideline Elite® Forte Smart Electric Fireplace offers advanced LED flame technology, WiFi enabled smart home compatibility and a traditional fireplace size. Easily control the flame and heat settings by remote control or mobile phone app. Through the Tuya Smart app, you can configure Google Home and Amazon Alexa devices and use voice commands to control the fireplace power and heat. 

Realistic Flame, Relaxing Ambiance

The heart of Touchstone's electric fireplaces is the flame itself. The LED flames deliver the same relaxing effect of real flames, without the smokey smell or mess, and they look great in any room of the house. Read more about the benefits of electric fireplaces.

To create the cozy atmosphere of a traditional fireplace, this electronic unit emits authentic-looking flames that emulate a real fire. The Touchstone fireplace LED flames look so natural that friends and family may think you own a traditional wood burning fireplace.

Cool to the Touch Safety

The front glass remains cool to the touch, providing a safer fireplace experience compared to a wood or gas burning fireplace. The Sideline Elite is ideal for use in homes with children and pets or in areas where wood burning fireplace use is restricted.

Built in Heater, All Season Use

With the dual heat and flame controls, you can enjoy the beauty of the fireplace with the heat turned on or off in any season or climate. The Sideline Elite Electric Fireplace adds a cozy feel to your room with the push of a button or voice command. The heater timer and auto shut-off add extra convenience.

Two heat settings (high and low) with a thermostat quickly warm a room up to 400 square feet. Please note, the heater is not designed to be the primary heat source in your room or home.

Multiple Flame Colors. Customizable Media

Create your own fireplace style with the Sideline Elite's 60 flame and base color combinations and fireplace hearth media. Use the log set for a traditional look or combine the crystals and driftwood for a more modern style. 

Easy Installation and Use

With a slim 5 1/2-inch depth, the Sideline Elite can be used as a recessed fireplace insert in the wall or build out, or as a wall mount fireplace.

You can easily add a Touchstone® electric fireplace to a room remodel or new home. With no need for gas venting or a chimney, you can install a Sideline Elite in any room from the bathroom to finished basement.

The Sideline Elite includes a mounting bracket and an easy-to-follow product manual. The fireplace can be plugged into a standard 120v outlet or hardwired by a professional.

Recommended Placement

The heat vents are on the top front of the unit. We recommend placing your Sideline Elite at least 8” below your ceiling or 8” below your mounted flat screen TV for safe clearance from the heater unit.

The remote control uses AAA batteries (batteries are not included).
