I tried a smart fan control for my large Hunter 3 speed ceiling fan. The speeds were messed up, and I read where these smart fan controls are not compatible with all fans.
So as an alternative to controlling my fan speed, maybe I could do an on/off. There is a mystery switch right next to my old fan control. I have no idea what it does, seems to do nothing. So I was thinking I’d replace the old mystery switch with a new smart switch and would take the load from the new switch and put it to the line of the old fan control.
Seem like a good, or bad, idea?
