I am trying to add my bedroom ceiling fan and light combo to my SmartThings environment. The fan is a Hunter and has an RF remote control with it. I figure there are 3 options all at different cost.
Easiest is a Bond Fan control unit. It is the most expensive option and does not integrate with ST. I can use it with Alexa and I could use IFTTT to get it into ST but I haven’t needed to use IFTTT yet and would prefer not to for this as well.
I could get a Hampton Bay Zigbee fan controller and replace my hunter remote with it and tie it directly in ST. This is a cheaper option.
I don’t have a neutral wire at my switch box so replacing the switch is not an option. Is there a small device that I could put in my ceiling box that is z-wave preferably or zigbee that will turn off and on power? I don’t need it to control the fan so much as the lights, so if it just tied into the wires going into the fan it is fine.
I am located in Canada so the Bond and Hampton Bay would have to come from the US. I am close to the border so I can have them shipped and pick up, but it is somewhat of a pain.
