Wiring Diagram

I want to be able to control the chandelier's light (off and on) using the remote. My configuration is in the image above. I can only get the chandelier to turn on but can't get the remote function to work. It's called a "Universal On and Off Ceiling Fan Remote Control" model #99112 if that helps. On the Home Depot website, others have mentioned they can get a single light to work with this remote/receiver. Guidance is very much appreciated. Thank you!

  • No, it just happened to be the one recommended to me by a Home Depot employee

  • Are you OK with something whose receiver replaces your wall switch instead of the remote you have? Commented Aug 8, 2018 at 0:17

Per the installation guide:

  • Connect the yellow wire from the receiver to the black wire from the fixture
  • The blue wire from the receiver won't be used, so just cap it. (This would be connected to a blue wire (or possibly black with white stripe wire) if your fixture had a fan)

  • Connect the black from the ceiling box to the black on the receiver

  • Connect all the whites together
  • And finally connect the grounds together
