Remote Control

I have an existing ceiling fan in the bedroom can it be adapted for remote control? Thank you.

I believe that Hunter makes a universal fan remote kit.

I recommend the Hunter All-Fan. They make three different models. One is for control by a hand-held remote, and the other two are for wall controls (one for two-wire switch legs and one for three-wire switch legs). All of these models, as well as similar models from other manufacturers, require you to install a remote receiver up in the bell housing at the ceiling. It's all very easy to do, except that it's always a tight fit getting the receiver in place.

When you install a remote, you usually make the wall switch either completely useless (i.e., it must always be on), or you make it of limited use. One of the things I like about the Hunter All-Fan is that the wall switch can still be used to turn on the fan's light. Most other models do not have that feature.

I been using Hunter All-Fan remote control and they are good products and I don't have much issue with it and they work good as I expected.

as John Nelson mention it may be little tight fit in the capony { bell box cover } on some units.

Yes there is wall switch verison if you want to go that route IIRC there is two verison as John mention again so double check to make sure.

Merci,Marc
