I just purchased a new fan for a bathroom with an in-fan humidity sensor. Here's the installation manual.
The fan has 6 wires coming out of it: 2 black, 2 white, 1 brown, and ground; the brown is labeled 'for humidity sensor or speed control'. Am I going crazy or does the wiring diagram on p.3 of the manual suggest that you need two switches for this: one for the fan and one for the humidity sensor? This seems a weird set up because I can see my kids repeatedly flipping the useless switch that apparently does nothing (i.e., the humidity sensor switch!) to get the thing to work. Two questions:
- Any ideas on whether this must be wired with two switched?
- If not, do you think everything could be wired to one switch and everything still work?
I've tried contacting the manufacturer and it seems that customer support is non-existent smh...
Thanks in advance.
