Thank you Matt,

Both (ceiling fan switch and thermostat) are GE z-wave devises.

I’m not a programmer, just a DIY-er. What is Rule Machine, Condition?

Sorry for my ignorance.

You might consider controlling the ceiling fan with a smartapp designed for that purpose…
Here is a smartapp I did called 3 Speed Ceiling Fan Thermostat and is specifically designed to work with your GE Smart Fan Control device.
