The Touchstone Sideline Elite® Forte Electric Fireplace, now with WiFi enabled smart technology for the same low price, was designed to improve upon our popular Sideline series by adding more colors, more features, and less frame around the fireplace. Now you can enjoy the traditional style of Touchstone’s Sideline Electric Fireplace with smart-home features. The Sideline Elite Wi-Fi has the realistic flame which has made Touchstone the leader in premium electric fireplaces, that you can now control with Alexa or Google Home voice-enabled commands. First and foremost, this is Touchstone’s Elite line for a reason. Thanks to the unmatched flame quality, large format display, multiple color features and reliable design, you start with the favorite electric fireplaces of smart consumers and contractors. When you add the voice commands of Alexa or Google Home, you can control your fireplace’s power and heat thanks to Touchstone’s smart home features.
The Sideline Elite® Forte delivers the beauty of a fireplace without the fire and smokey smell. This smart electric fireplace has 2 heat settings (high and low) with a thermostat and will heat a room up to 400 sq. ft. Also, the fireplace's flame can be used without the heating feature. The Sideline Elite is easy to install and comes with simple and understandable instructions.
Realistic Flame, Relaxing Ambiance
The heart of Touchstone's electric fireplaces is the flame itself. We tell our customers the flame will transcend your expectations, and they will not fail to impress. The flames deliver the same relaxing effect of real flames, without the smell or mess, and they look great in any room of the house. Read more about the benefits of electric fireplaces.
Multiple flame colors
To create the cozy atmosphere of a traditional fireplace, this electronic unit emits authentic-looking flames that emulate a real fire. The flames that Touchstone® fireplaces create are natural enough to have friends and family think you own a traditional wood burning fireplace.
This fireplace has 60 color combinations, allowing you to set just the right mood. The lighting and heating options of this fireplace offer you the ability to customize your atmosphere to your liking. With both its look and performance, the Sideline Elite gives you the total package. Both the heat and flame settings can be operated through a remote control. (Batteries not included)
Yes, it does heat your room
What makes the Sideline Elite® Forte unique is its heating capabilities. It allows you to recess your electric fireplace into the wall while also providing heat through the vent in the front of the unit. The Sideline Elite offers two heat settings which quickly add heat to a room up to 400 sq. ft. Please note the heater isn’t designed to be the primary heat source in your room or home. It's designed to warm up a cool evening, or bring the temperature of a room up a few degrees. The visual appeal and heat emitted by your electric fireplace place in addition to your home’s primary heating source will provide your room with a cozy and calming aura. Your electric fireplace’s heat settings can be controlled using the remote or the controls on the front of the unit, and you also have the option of controlling the heat by setting up the Sideline Elite’s built-in heat timer.
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.
Mounting and Use
The versatile Sideline Elite electric fireplace offers two installation options. Although it is essentially designed for insertion in your wall, it can also be mounted on your wall. Instructions for mounting and install come with the fireplace, and we recommend you follow the simple instructions provided. We recommend placing your Sideline Elite at least 8” below your ceiling or 8” below your mounted flat screen TV because of its heating feature.

What Our Customers Say
Truly great quality products, fast shipping and a very helpful customer service. Chris was very helpful with my questions. An excellent shopping experience at Fire Fixtures!
Quick and damage-less delivery. Currently building out our living room, so the electric fireplace will fit in nicely. My experience with Fire Fixtures so far has been very smooth.
Great customer service! When I received the shipment, I found out there was a missing part of the initial shipment - Alyssa from Fire Fixtures was quick to respond and solved the issue.
We absolutely love this fireplace. There are so many settings available to create a realistic fire that works perfectly for our home design! I love the look of the Elite with the minimal trim, and large viewing area. It’s a modern look but minimal enough to blend with the many styles. The installation was pretty straightforward, too! We couldn’t be happier with our choice.
