I have four ceiling fan / light combo’s in each of my bedrooms and would like them to become smart fan / light combo’s, allowing for control from both a phone as well as using either siri or Alexa voice prompts to turn on and off.
1). I believe they are all hampton bay fans.
2). I am by no means an electrical expert, but pulled the plate off. Currently it looks like they are controlled wirelessly as the switch in the wall is not connected by wires. If I remember correctly when installing the fans, there is a dummy box in the base of the fan that connects to the wireless switch through a tseries of toggle switches.
3). However, behind the switch, there are capped wires. looks like two sets and a bare metal wire as well. Hopefully that means it can be hard wired and that there is a ground or neutral wire.
4). It is a single switch box. Currently there are both fan and light switch controls on the same single switch.
What options are available for me? I have a lot of apple products including iphones and ipads, but also just got amazon echo show 5’s in each bedroom and downloaded and set up the Alexa app on my iphone.
Thanks from a newby and I hope to hear from you soon.
Stay Safe, Stay Well
