Hampton Bay Zigbee Fan controller

In my installation, I ended up “modifying” the bulky GE Fan Control by bending back all the aluminum corners to make it fit in the canopy. I guess I could have cut it down but I was lazy. :slight_smile:

It would have been a lot easier if the ceiling fan box was a standard size but for mine it was one of those pancake thin size versions that secure directly to the ceiling joist beams. My last option was to cut in a retrofit gangbox right next to the existing ceiling box to hide a device and then put in a blank cover textured to match the ceiling.

Great idea. I was thinking about doing the 2 relay option but this sounds better. How did you wire it?

If you asking about the way I did it, I explain it a little more here.

Heh never even occurred to me to use the 12730 as anything but a wall switch. Great idea…

Looks like the fan is now selling. Has anyone here bought it?

Any idea if they are going to release just the controller?

I was able to purchase one, installed it yesterday, and have it working with the (included) remote. Haven’t attempted to pair it with ST yet as I’m guessing I’ll need some kind of new device type. If anybody is further along than I am, please respond!

It’s still not available at any stores near my zip code and they aren’t selling it online yet. Wonder where you can get one?

I’m in St. Louis and two of the HD stores in the area were getting a few units. The store I normally shop at was getting three of them; I had one of the workers go find one on the receiving dock before they were put on the store shelves.

My HomeDepot doesn’t have it yet… Does anyone have a current website link for the item they could post?

After clicking “Check Inventory at Other Stores” enter one of the following store numbers in the search: #1904, #1918 or #1948. Each had two in inventory this morning.

@beckwith Do you have the url link for the Hampton Bay fan? The one in the original post is not valid. This one is valid for the Home Decorators Collection Gardinier 52 in. LED Brushed Nickel Ceiling Fan but I thought there was a less expensive Hampton Bay option available at around $119

UPDATE: 03/03/2017
If you can’t wait for the controller to become available at retail you can order the repair parts direct from manufacturer at 800-749-3267
King of Fans
Model #43260
UPC code 82392 43260
Wink Receiver MR101Z (J) $32
**Remote Control TR227A (K) $25
Total for both with shipping $72 which is 7-10days

** EDIT: However you don’t have to get the (K) Remote Control stated in the manual if you prefer an in-wall mounted version or a Thermostatic version instead. See my post#156 here

I also asked about the repair parts for the ZigBee Fan Controller Model # 99432 itself to verify parts between the universal retail version ZigBee controller and the one included with the Gardiner Fan but her computer system didn’t help her identify the difference. (there is a reverse button on the Home Decorators Eastwind not found on the Universal model)

Thanks to @pilot04 for posting the images

I don’t know if they are going to release it in retail so I contacted the supplier Home Decorators Collection 800-986-3460 to simply order the parts I needed that is shown in the installation manual which for fan Model # 43260 is Part J “Receiver” and Part K “Remote control”

I have my review on this ZigBee receiver here.

As of today I was told that it will be 2-3 weeks before repair parts stock comes in because this is such a new model fan and to try back then. She didn’t have a price or even for sure if those parts would be available but to check back.

UPDATE 10/2016
I called the parts department 1-800-283-6513 to order the Wink receiver(J) and remote control(K) only. I am being informed now that they will only cost $80 and should be available by the end of November. So at least they have a price now on the parts and the price is great comparing it to purchasing a motor controller and light switch plus you get the remote control! So I’m keeping my fingers crossed this can be paired and a device handler written for SmartThings.


That first link was for the remote only which it seems Home Depot pulled. With 1.6k clicking the link, they probably were inundated.

there is a big quality control issue with these fans/remote modules

i bought 2 and both the remote units would turn off on high speed (#4) and ended up returning them

I don’t understand, you mean when the fan was running on high it would turn off by itself? Or pressing the high button causes the fan to turn off instead? Or something else?

when you turned the fan on speed 4 it would spin and turn off by itself

I’m still a little confused when you state speed #4. Here is the instruction manual that shows the high speed is how it starts up in #1. So you are saying that when you turned on the fan with the first click press and one LED indicator was on that it was not on high speed but would turn off? Then if you continued on to the second LED it would go from OFF to Medium speed?

However I am more interested in if you were able to pair it up successfully with SmartThings. How did that process go?

The first 3 speeds work without an issue. As soon as you switched to the highest speed the fan would turn off requiring a reset from the wall on/off switch.

Maybe I stumbled across a bad batch.

But what about pairing it with SmartThings hub? How did that go?

Sorry for asking again but I am still confused because according to the manual the Fan starts at the highest speed. Is your manual different than the one I posted a link on?
