I have a ceiling fan with lights that works off of two pull chains and is not wired to a wall switch. I’d like to replace it with a light fixture but need a way to turn it on and off and dim the light. I’d also like to control the fixture via SmartThings.
A set of smart bulbs could work (I use those in the ceiling fan now), but I don’t want to be completely dependent on the smart capability. I’d like to have either a wireless wall switch (like the RunLessWire Simple Wireless Switch Kit on Amazon) or a remote that communicates directly with the fixture so I’m never left in the dark (or light) when the hub goes down.
One option I’m considering is the Hampton Bay Universal Wink Enabled Ceiling Fan Remote Control. I think it will work if I mount the receiver in the light fixture’s canopy, but it seems like overkill for this use case, as I don’t need the ceiling fan capabilities.
