I'm not too familiar with fan motors/configurations. I'd like to install a fan and use a Z Wave 3 speed switch to control the fan speed, and a Z Wave dimmer switch to control the lighting in the fan. The Z Wave component shouldn't matter. I'd like to use a 3 speed switch to control fan speed and a dimmer to control the light in the fan.
In my mind, there are two different types of fans: 1) controlled by a remote (comes with or works with the fan/light combo) and 2) pull strings on fan/light combo.
- Is it correct to assume that I cannot use a 3 speed wall switch with a fan that comes with its own remote?
- Is it correct to assume that I can use a 3 speed wall switch with a fan that has a pull string to change the speed of the fan?
Or better yet, what type of fan can use that will be compatible with the above referenced 3 speed switch?
