I’m installing a ceiling fan with a remote and I have 3 way switches and 4 way switches to that fan. I want to use the remote and the wall switches. Can anyone help me out with this?

  • You generally can't use switches and remote. Model of fan/remote? The likely solution will be smart switches with one of them as a remote. What actual functionality do you need? Actual remote or multiple fixed locations? Dim? Speed? Mar 16 at 18:06
  • I know that I can use a relay in the fan box to use the remote and switch. I wanted to know if I can use multiple wall switches in different locations. You said I can use a smart switch- do the make it for ceiling fans with light and speed control? Mar 16 at 18:35
  • Yes there are smart switches designed for fan and light control Mar 16 at 18:36
  • Ok do you the name of the smart switches / so I can get them Mar 16 at 18:40
  • 1
    Are you OK with ditching the remote that came with the fan and using some other product instead? Also, do you have room for two separate single gang switches at at least one of the switch locations? Mar 17 at 1:19
