Hampton Bay Wireless Ceiling Fan Remote Control

By: Jodi Marks

The Hampton Bay Wireless Remote Control for ceiling fans can be used to control the fan and lights on many different brands of paddle fans. To install, turn off the power to the fan, attach the controller to the wiring, and you’re ready to go.

The remote operates up to 30’ away from the fan. It includes a three-speed fan control, and light control that can be used on dimmable incandescent bulbs or CFL and LED bulbs.

The Hampton Bay Wireless Remote Control is available at The Home Depot.

Jodi Marks: Installing a ceiling fan with a light kit is another great lighting option for your home. And if you are going to go to the time and expense of installing a ceiling fan, think about this. This is a neat little addition to it.

This is a handheld wireless remote for your ceiling fan by Hampton Bay. Now, you don’t have to have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan for this to operate, because it operates a variety of brands. The nice thing about this is you can be 30 feet away from your ceiling fan and still operate it. Because, think about it, usually your electrician will wire your overhead fixture in your room to have two switches, one for the fan and one for the light. Or if you weren’t as fortunate, you had an electrician that maybe just had one switch at the door, and it would control the light and the fan at the same time. But with this remote control, it doesn’t matter how it was wired at the wall. You can control it with just a click of a button.

Now, you can dim incandescent lights, and there’s a setting for that. Or if you don’t want to dim your lights, say you’re using LED or fluorescent, all you do is you use another setting. And you can just turn the light on and off.

Either way, you’ve got master control right here. And who doesn’t need another remote control right there at their disposal!

    My remote is very hard to get to work. Pressing it hard or lightly doesn’t matter. It may be getting too old and the fan works perfectly . I am wondering if I can get a replacement one. The number on the remote control is 248723.
    Thank you
