I want to install a Hunter Exeter fan. The fan is remote operated for both lights and fan speed, however, I have two switches on the wall - one for the fan and one for the light.
I would like one of the switches to turn on the light, and the other to provide power for the fan (which I can then use the remote to control).
Diagram 1: This is my 'hack' attempted at it. Left switch goes directly to the light, the right one powers the fan.
Diagram 2: Below this is the version the manual says. I'm not sure which functions the yellow and blue wires from the receiver, so I'm taking a guess in Diagram #1. I don't like this one because the right switch is a dud after you've wired it.
**Update 8/15 I finally got around to wiring the fan, and the experts here on stackoverflow were right. The blue wire from the fan goes directly to the black wire from the ceiling to turn on the light directly from the switch. And yellow wire from the reciever connects directly to the black wire on the fan. Both switches work! I capped off the blue wire from the receiver.
Important Note: You might need to wire it per the manual first to make sure the light on the fan is turned on from the remote. The fan remembers the last setting and when powered goes back to that setting.**
