    Currently I have a propane heater fireplace insert model NVT-1186R. I have to reach into the fireplace to manually turn the flame on and adjust the temperature level. Is there a way to upgrade this to be controlled remotely, ideally with an automatic thermostat so that a certain temperature can be maintained?

    Nope. You have a gas log, not an insert.
    It's not considered a heater rated appliance,
    but a decorative appliance & as such,
    you can't put a thermostat on it.
    Sorry...
