I replaced an old ceiling fan in my sons room that had a light fixture and dimmer switch. The new ceiling fan only operates with a remote that it came with. No pull strings for the light or fan. I also want to add a couple of recessed lights so he gets more light as the fan light fixture does not give off much light.
Currently I have a armored electrical cable in the ceiling with Red/Black/White. The new ceiling fan remote receiver has red/white cable on one side and on the other, blue, black, white. I ran romex cable to the recessed cans and attached them together matching the white/black/and bare. I have the cable for the recessed lights in the same ceiling hole for the the fan ready. How do I make the connection so that the recessed lights work with a dimmer switch and the fan and fan light work with the remote it came with? We will used the recessed lighting and fan 99% of the time, and rarely use the fan light.
In the switch box, I see the armored red joined with the black from the electrical panel run. The armored black is by itself currently as I took off the old dimmer switch. And the armored white is joined with the other white from the electrical panel run.
This is a picture of my switch box. The black/red/white on the right side are the armored cable to ceiling fan.
