I have a double gang box with separate fan and light switches. When the
unit gets here I am going to do some measuring before touching anything.


(Stephan H.) #265

If your gang boxes are deep there is a decent chance it will fit if you install it diagonally. Keep in mind that this thing has connectivity issues and you will definitely need the antennas to protrude outside the face plate cover. Won’t be very pretty at all.


(Bradlee S.) #266

I added a Peanut Zigbee plug in the same room to work as a repeater. Previously, the fan was losing connection all the time. Seems to be working good now so far!


(Dusty) #267

if it works I will expose the antennas and mount a tablet running
actiontiles to cover everything up. Or, I go with the boring mount the
receiver in the ceiling fan canopy route.


(Stephan H.) #268

Post some pics if you get it working. Good luck to ya!


(mondelli82) #270

Thanks man I got it working. Needed to change it in ide


#271

Is it possible to remove the light child item? I have 2 fans if installed these controllers on, one has a light, the other doesn’t. I tried deleting the light through smartthings for the one that doesn’t have one, but it causes the parent app to not perform correctly. It still works, but when you click a fan speed, the “adjusting” overlay over the button doesn’t go away unless you back out of the fan to your things list.


(AaronW) #272

Is this the same controller? I can’t find it anywhere.


(Mark) #273

That is not a zigbee device. It’s an in-canopy fan/light controller and it communicates locally to the in-wall switch via RF like many other “dumb” fan controllers.

That wall-switch will work with the in-ceiling fan controller we’re discussing here, but only locally on the 400MHz frequency (approximately, I don’t remember the exact frequency).


(AaronW) #274

Bummer. Recommendations on where to find this then??


(Mark) #275

See the first post of this thread.


(Ted Brock) #276

First - Thank you everyone for your hard work
Second - Everything works great, lights & fan speed, but the display is different. It does show the 1, 2 or Breeze like the video or other screen shots. And it always shows HIGH. If I press the big button it will say turning off and stay that way until I back out and then it show HIGH again.
Thoughts?


(Mitchell Terry) #277

I also see the same issues that you are seeing @TedB. I have android. I noted in the code it was using a URL that redirects, not sure that’s the issue. tried to publish locally and push and didn’t seem to really fix anything (but i’m not sure i’m doing it correctly – need to spend more time messing with the IDE.)

to add to my previous findings, it appears to have an issues with parsing the states of the fan. I get this in the debug.

(Stephan H.) #279

It seems like smartthings has changed something on the backend…AGAIN.

For some reason the parse method is no longer updating an attribute that updates the main tile. Unfortunately I don’t have time to dig into this at the moment. As soon as I can find a fix I will update this thread.


(Stephan H.) #280

Ok…so I did a few quick tests and it looks like the issue is with the following 2 lines in the KOF Zigbee Fan Controller DTH

Line 363 child.sendEvent(name:"switch",value:"on")
Line 370 child.sendEvent(name:"switch",value:"off") //send OFF event to all other child fans

For some reason the Ide no longer executes these commands and breaks the loops that updates all the fanSpeed Tiles. The only way to “fix” this right now is to comment out these 2 lines. Everything should work…HOWEVER…voice control and actionTile updates of the fan speeds will be flaky.

So basically,
You should be able to control the fan and fan light completely using the ST app.
3rd party control (Voice Control and ActionTiles) of the Fan (on/off) and Light (on/off/level) should be functional

The only things that will not work correctly till this is completely fixed is
3rd party control (Voice Control and ActionTiles) of the FAN SPEEDS will not function properly.

If anyone has suggestions on a complete fix, please let me know and I will test on my end when I get a chance. I can send events to the child devices to update any attribute except the “switch” attribute which has been working for the past year…till 3 days ago.

Thank you!


(Ted Brock) #283

THANK YOU so much for a quick response!
The screen shows up correctly now, but I am traveling and can’t check operation until this weekend.

Thanks, I’ve put the change in place and it seems to be working for me.

Hi All,

Amazing work! I’ve been following this for sometime and went ahead and purchased the remote and receiver back in the Summer and never got around to installing it until now (thanks to work, family, honey-do-list, etc. lol).

I finally installed it and everything works properly with the receiver and the remote; however, I cannot get ST to find the device at all. I have all device handlers added in my IDE and published.

I attempted the reset a few times but never could get the light to cycle 5 times a factory reset was confirmed. The instructions state, and what you all have repeated here, turn the fan off and then back on with a 3 second delay in-between. I tried it with the main power button (top button on the remote) and even clicking the fan speed button to cycle through the speeds until it shuts it off. The light never cycles 5 times. To add, I even tried killing the power to the receiver for over 30 seconds (it was like 50 seconds) and then brought power back to it before running through the procedure, still no luck.

Any ideas? Thanks!
