Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

The GF 200 DV II is a millivolt stove which means it generates it's own power and does not need the the power grid to fire up. You can connect it to a thermostat or a remote but either of these will only turn the main burner on or off. They will not light the pilot which has to be lit manually via a piezo electric igniter.
