A practical and economical way to organize single pole and single switch rooms
I love the way it works. The fan had been bought to go with a Hunter. It was a problem that the fan had lights (as most ceiling fans have), but the house only had a single light In the wall, there is only one switch box with poles. You would be able to turn the whole fan unit on and off, including the lights, but not how the components are individually controlled. feature was especially important since we were installing the ceiling fan in a nursery, where we wanted to have the ability to turn it on or off quietly without turning on a light or using a loud There is a snug fit between the receiver and ceiling fan mounting bracket, making it virtually impossible for it to ever pop out. As for wiring in the remote, I think the instructions for the receiver are fairly straightforward and are easy to understand. If you're installing a brand new fan, I would rely entirely on the instructions for the receiver and skip the instructions for the fan entirely. It is easy to install and operate the wall remote. It would have been nice to find something with larger, more tactile, and more responsive buttons, something with a bit more style and less like a dime-a-dozen copy-paste model. One hand remote that looks identical to the rest. According to my, rather cursory, search on Amazon, the only wall remote with 4 or more stars is this ones, and it seems to be the only one that doesn't use batteries (why other models do use batteries is opaque One of those reviewers made the observation that the batteries have to be replaced entirely by prying the switch out of the wall to access it). doesn't seem to be a great deal of delay between pressing a button and the fan responding (maybe a half second at most). With the fan using the CFL bulbs that came with it and a dimmer on the wall remote, the light button is the one that takes the longest to respond. It appears that the bulbs turn on with a delay of approximately one second, followed by another delay of approximately one half-second Approximately one second is required for them to adjust their brightness to full. My wall switch does not work, I have cheap CFLs or maybe both is the culprit, but I did not want to buy LED bulbs when I already have free bulbs, and I don't want to waste energy and money using incandescent bulbs (which the instructions recommend). In conclusion, this is an excellent solution to having a ceiling fan with lights work without having to hire a professional electrician to replace the electrical box in the wall and get a 2-way switch for the fan. In the end, having the ability to clearly and instantly control your fan speed without using a linear action pull chain is an incredible feature. A recent update My ceiling fan came with CFLs that made an audible buzzing sound after using the light for awhile with the Hunter ceiling fan. As a result, I have replaced them with dimmable LED bulbs and the sound has gone away. Since this is in a product review, not on the fan itself, I am not sure that the issue is with the fan itself, but rather with the wall / receiver unit and the way the chip or the voltage metering works (since it happened with another switch in the past). As a result, I would recommend using dimmable LEDs with this product. I would like to point out the following Some LEDs may not be dimmable, or not be designed to be dimmed. You should check the packaging carefully, because I think that's what causes the lights to buzz.

The job was only for one day
The purpose of this transmitter is to replace a transmitter and receiver that were already equipped with an existing fan. On the old transmitter, the buttons had been removed. In addition to wiring up the new transmitter (and leaving the old receiver in the fan), I also connected the new receiver. To match the codes, set them to the same value. By pressing the "Light On" button, I turned the lights on. I flickered the little red light on the transmitter and turned on the fan light. It was a total success. This is the last time it has In terms of RF signals, the little red light never lit up again and the RF signal wasn't transmitted again, either. This behavior is consistent with the fact that the switch burned out on the first (The old receiver in the fan still works with an old handheld remote. I can't.
Overall, it's not hard to install, and so far it's working fine
I installed the light on an old 52in Hampton Bay ceiling fan that has been around for six years. Easy setup as long as you have a deeper cap to put the transmitter in. Good instructions and good installation as long as you have a deeper That means you should be able to use this on any fan that is not a flush mount. My fan has two pull chains one for the light(on and off) and another for the speed(3 speeds). As a result, I left the speed switch at high and the light switch on after my installation, to be able to remove both pull chains later on. I spent about an hour and a half installing the software I put a longer downrod on the fan at the same time as installing this, so it would have taken half an hour less.
I have some dimmable LED bulbs, which I noticed require me to hold down the light button in order to dim the light. Despite the fact that it does not completely dim the lights (off), the lowest setting still leaves about 20% of the lights on. Also, when you hold down the button to dim to the lowest level, if you hold it for too long, the switch will jump back to full brightness level, so it's something to get used to with this I think its an okay deal for a little under $30. I would have liked larger buttons, All in all, I'm quite satisfied with how this is working so far after having installed it for a few days.
