    Is there and Android app that will adjust the flame in a gas fireplace? The valve controlling the flame has a 6-volt motor connected to a receiver that gets a signal from a remote radio-frequency transmitter. Can the Android function as the transmitter and is there an app intended to do that?

    Hello Realfyre. I seriously doubt that the fireplace receiver is on a frequency that your phone could access. There might be some sort of short range transceiver that might relay between phone and fireplace receiver. Nothing is impossible :) I wouldn't surprise me to see such innovations in the future. We do have an area where we discuss apps here at AF. You might ask in there... I'm an old dog and certainly do not know all of the tricks. Best of luck to you and thanks for joining the these forums. Here is a link to the app discussion area: Android Applications - Android Forums
