New Fan/Light Controller for Smartthings (Universal Smart Ceiling Fan Remote)

Hi Everyone while looking through Home Depot’s site I came across this device and ordered today. If you have this item can you share your experience. I have the Hampton Bay solution which works but was looking for a simpler alternative as I have several more fans to replace. If in interested here is the link

Looks pretty much identical to the Hampton Bay zigbee controller, except it’s WiFi instead of zigbee. I prefer zigbee for several reasons, but this might be a better option for some people/situations. Not sure this is going to be significantly simpler than the zigbee version. Might actually be more complex as far as getting integrated with SmartThings.

This is one of the fans that has the Bond software built into it. (Rather than using the separate stand-alone Bond remote.)

They are promising SmartThings integration through the new V3 app. Looks like it would be worth a try. :sunglasses:

This remote converts your standard ceiling fan into a Smart ceiling fan making it compatible with Google Assistant, Samsung SmartThings, or Amazon Alexa

I have the home depot 99434 fan controller installed and working with Bond and Smart Things. Is anyone familir with a different smart app to use for control? I attempted to use the 4 speed fan thermostat 2017 Dale Coffing but cant get this to work. I have 3 DCOFFING device handlers installed and published. KOF Zigbee fan controller, KOF Fan speed child device, and KOF Light child device. Did I miss something on the SmartApp side?

I installed this remote on Friday and using Bond instructions I was easily able to connect it with the SmartThings app (no hub required). Using ST will allow you to schedule on and off scheduling.


Can I ask, did you get the fans working? I had everything working under the classic app, but I have not been able to get things working under the the new smartthings

I use this exact controller and it was superior to the Hampton bay option since the St integration is native
