The Escea DX15000 pushes the snowball of fire-controlling skills kicked off by our ancestors to the next logical platform — the smartphone. Besides being the first-ever contained gas fireplace available with a 60-inch wide flame, the Escea DX1500 features a Smart Heat intelligent control system that allows users to manipulate the fire via a smartphone (Android & iOS) or a computer. Green-conscious consumers should note too that the Escea system captures 90% of the DX1500′s heat output and returns it back into the room via additional heat ducts installed with the fireplace.
