Question, I recently bought a ge fan controller, 14287, but when installing it via smartthings I’m provided with a sliding scale for the fan as if it were a dimmer. I find this odd, workable, but odd. I’ve seen a number of self made interfaces posted online, and am curious if there are any recommendations, and if there’s a guide to installing/integrating them.
Yes the default DTH works like a dimmer where:
0 = Off
1-33 = Low
34-66 = Med
67-100 = High
Personally I stick with the stock DTH because it’s really not that hard to use (for me, I can understand family members might not get it) but MOST importantly, it keeps the device running locally which is more critical than anything.
Here’s a DTH which lets you pick low-med-hi.
Here’s a modified version with child devices that can be accessed by smart speakers:
Which one is the Stock DTH? Zwave Dimmer?
Z-Wave Dimmer Switch Generic
Mine are the non-plus versions but all list as just “Dimmer Switch”. You’ll get over the whole slider/percent thing pretty quick, especially if you use voice control. I just say 30, 60, or 90 for low. med, hi.
Alternatively, if you use the 3-speed fan thermostat smartapp, you won’t need to control your fan manually
Just to note: these device handlers are not confirmed to work with the Samsung Connect app which the OP’s second image shows they are using.
Has anybody noticed that in the new app there is a GE Fan Controller, was wondering if anybody had seen this or tried to use it. I would have to remove my fan and readd under the new app to make it work.
OK, I guess I didn’t consider the other DTHs not being local, that makes sense.
I have it installed on my phone, not a fan, prefer the “classic”.
