    I saw a posting for the Lopi Pioneer Bay that said an off the shelf thermostat could be used. Is this true for the Yankee Bay as well? I don't see how that would be connected, as there are just the 2 connections for wires on the stove. How does one connect a commercial thermostat to the Yankee Bay insert?

    I have the Lopi wired thermostat, but that is a PITA to install.

    Thanks.

    Also, I'm looking to use an off the shelf thermostat, not the one from Lopi. Ultimately, I'd like to set up something like a Nest thermostat.

    How would I connect an off the shelf thermostat to the stove? What would I look for in the thermostat for electrical connections?

    There are good U tube videos that will help you set it up
    From simple ones to fancy ones. There will also be instructions
    with what ever unit you buy Just remember the stove has two wires
    and the stat is only for on/off Some new stoves get a whole lot fancier
    I do not know your stove well it may have heat and idle where the
    stove does not turn off but when called for temp is reached it reverts to a
    maintenance burn on low . Don may chime in he has lots more experience
    with stoves than I do
