I’ve done a bit of searching and could never find me exact scenario, apologies if this has been addressed already.
Previously, I had a ceiling fan with a light in my living room. The fan and light were both controlled via a pull string, and there are no wall-mounted switches to control it at all. I eventually removed the ceiling fan, since it would have been in the way of a ceiling mounted projector I was installing. I replaced the fan with a low-profile LED light fixture. Since there was no switch to control the circuit, I installed a wireless ceiling fan control module between the wires and the fixture, allowing us to turn it on and off with the tiny enclosed remote control.
Now, we’d like to incorporate it into our SmartThings routines, but I’m unsure how to go about it. I’d considered purchasing a ST compatible light switch that you’d ordinarily install in the wall and simply mount it inside the fixture or over it (in the recess the ceiling fan was mounted to), but I’m not certain that it will fit in either dimentionally, and seems somewhat dangerous. I’m aware there are inline modules that I could use, but it seems that most of those are also intended to connect to a wall-mounted switch. The wiring I have at the fixture is only the 2 wires and a ground. I’m unsure about a “neutral wire” I’ve seen mentioned elsewhere. I’ve also read that the inline modules aren’t suitable for LED lighting and only incandescent.
If anyone has some insight or can provide guidance on my options, I’d certainly be grateful.
