Fan Remote/ Wall switch question.

Hello All,
Just a quick question. I'm still debating on how I would like to install my ceiling fan and if I want to use recessed lighting. Anyhow, my question is... Deciding to use a Fan remote and have the switch just as the master switch, if I turned the light on with the remote and hit the wall switch to kill power to turn the light off, by flipping the switch to power again would the light be on the setting I left it on the remote or would it reset and the light be off, only allowing me to turn the light on with the remote again?
Thanks in Advance
Just would hate to set it up this way and be disappointing when it doesn't work like I hope.

Welcome to the forums.

There is no hard and fast rule. Some lights on fans will come back on when re-powered and some won't.

I have a Hunter fan and when the power comes back on from a power failure.... the lights is on full.

Thanks for the fast reply. Do you have a remote on that fan? This fan would be a hunter as well, but with a honeywell universal remote

Yes... my fan came with a Hunter remote.

The control box in the fan controls the feature.... not the handheld remote.
