Could we automate your “dumb’ ceiling fan with light? We sure can, with Inovelli’s red series fan and light switch. You can turn them on manually by tapping the switch as normally, but you can also have it be automated. Have the fan come on automatically when the A/C turns on. Or have the lights come on in the morning to wake you up. If you want to have the fan turn on automatically at nights and off in the morning based on schedule, sure. You can even have the fan be temperature controlled. If it gets too warm, it comes on itself. Whatever you want. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
This switch also has LED strip, that illuminates when the switches are turned on, but it can also be used for notifications as well, as explained in the other video here. Have it turn on blue if it’s raining outside. Wake up in the morning and if you notice it glowing blue, you know it’s raining outside, and be ready to dress accordingly before you even get out of bed.
The other great thing about this is if you want to renovate a room and want to replace a ceiling light with a ceiling fan and light combo, but it’s controlled by one switch. It is expensive to hire an electrician to add a second switch so you can control the fan and light separately, or labor intensive to add another wiring if you do it yourself. This fan and light switch can do both, with one set of wires and one swtich!
It’s definitely recommended, and I would pick up another if I have another fan to put up!
