The only product that I know of that will do what you want is the Lutron Maestro Light/Fan control. This product consists of a switch and canopy module. The switch will digitally talk to the canopy module over the single ungrounded wire and control lights/fan separately. The kits are one switch and one module but the switch can talk to 4 modules at once.
You could install remote modules in each fixture, however, since there's only a single ungrounded conductor your options are limited. The easiest option might be to install the remote modules, and allow them to completely control each fixture. In this setup, the wall switch will turn everything on and off as before. But when the switch is on, the remotes ...
If you live in an apartment then the chance of your neighbor having the same fan is high. Try setting the dip switches on the fan receiver and remote to a new setting. Just make sure there're the same.
This can be done using a multi-way fan/light controller system such as the Lutron Maestro series. You (or your electrician) will need a MA-LFQM package, which includes the master wall module and the canopy module, and two MA-ALFQ35 accessory controls, as well as normal wiring supplies (two and three conductor cable of the appropriate gauge, wire ...
you could always add a remote module http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Ceiling-Fan-Remote-Control/dp/B001I1M95E i would take a look why the switch doesn't work properly example see if it's connected to the switch or bypassed
If you have a house that old and there is a light fixture in the said location you must assume that it would not hold a ceiling fan. You will probably have to do some light drywall repair or try an old work ceiling fan box to get a fan working.
You'll have to look at the inside of the box where the light is mounted. It should have printing inside it - although at the age of the house, it may not. Boxes that can support ceiling fans will be known as "acceptable for fan support": If you don't see something like that, you're going to need to take out some of the ceiling and replace to box with a ...
There's no problem installing the fan without a switch. In many cases folks replace a switched ceiling light fixture with a fan, so the fan uses the switch that used to control the light. In other cases the ceiling is too high, so controlling the fan via the pull chain is inconvenient. If you install the fan without a switch, you could always add a ...
There are three possibilities to do what you want: You can get a wall remote control for your existing fan receiver -- it does not look like the Hunter wall remotes support dimming the light from the remote, but your existing remote does not appear to be a dimming model anyway. (This has the advantage that you can upgrade your system to support dimming ...
Simplest answer is probably to get a second remote and velcro it to the wall, unless the controller is designed to also support a physical switch via a switch loop or the "toggle off and on again rapidly" signalling mechanism. Docs for the controller should answer that question; if they don't tell you how to also use a wall switch you probably can't -- or at ...
Ceiling Fan and Light wall switch. Look with a flashlight into the back of the plastic box. That is were you may find the bare cooper ground lead for the replacement wall switch (4th wire). If the original fan light switch did not use the ground (3 wire) then the electrician would just shove the ground wire deep back in the box. Pull it out and ground the ...
