How do I determine if I need to use a manufacturer's fan switch or if I can use an off-the-shelf fan switch?

E.g. I would like to buy an Emerson Loft fan and Emerson Curva fan and control them with Lagrange Adorne paddle fan controls.

Looking at the specifications, both the Emerson Loft Fan CF765WW and Emerson CF144/CF152 Curva Fan appear to use PSC motors, so they should be compatible with any typical fan speed control, including the Lagrand AAFN4S16AM4.

I notice that both of these fans are premium models that have the speed controls included in the box. In the case of the Curva, the package includes a wireless remote and receiver.

Obviously you won't be saving any money by using "off-the-shelf" fan switches with these.
