Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LMC Does Not Include a Remote Control!
This does not include a remote control. It says in the Specification Details section that it has a remote control. The Product Overview used to say that it had a remote control, but Home Depot changed the wording after I called to complain. What you get is a wall-mounted control box that must be wired into your power. Whoever wrote the Details section should look up the definition of 'remote control' because it means 'wireless'. I paid extra to have fast shipping because our friend who was installing the fan could only do it on a certain day. Imagine my surprise when there was no actual remote included. I had to order a separate handheld Hampton Bay remote, which won't arrive for another week, so we haven't been able to use the fan yet. Outdoor fans should include a true remote. Why would anyone want to cut a hole into their outside wall? The fan took our experienced electrician friend 4 hours to install. He had to cut a square hole in the ceiling to accommodate the motor box, and the round fan base doesn't cover the entire square cut. There were a few scrapes on the plastic fan blades, which I easily covered with a brown marker. Attached is a picture of the fan 'remote'.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bibmom Very Attractive and Functional
I had two of these fans installed on a large deck. I really like the dark finish, and the blades have an attractive design on them. I was a little concerned that the fluorescent bulbs would produce a stark light, but the amber shades tone down the bulbs nicely, while still allowing the lights to produce sufficient lighting for the deck. The fans provide good air flow. I only gave it four stars, because, as some of the other reviewers mentioned, the fan does have to be hardwired unless you purchase the remote control separately. I feel the description of the fan is misleading in this regard.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AZBiker Very nice fan
Good value for the price. Looks great and works well. No more difficult to assemble than any other fan. Only negative is the remote actually mounts in the light switch and is not hand held like you would normally expect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CasalaVidaLoca Nice buy
Bought this fan at a steep discount (about 40% off) and used it in my den, mounted to the bottom of a "barn beam" to add to the rustic look and feel of our home. Perfect!! Also like the remote wall mounted control (it's not a hand held remote control), but wish the controller also dimmed the lights (it only turns the lights on or off and gives you three speeds and off for the fan).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by stephabelle Beautiful Fan with Excellent Lighting
We just installed this fan in our new solid patio cover. It looks really nice, and the lighting is great. We sat in our patio at dark, and the fan provided perfect lighting. The one drawback is that we bought this because it stated it had a remote. It doesn't - it has a wall plate switch instead. Luckily, we were able to install the wall plate in the existing switch, but it would have been much more of a hassle if it didn't fit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hooyah Nice fan - love the remote features
This comes with the wall switch which is actually a remote device. There is no traditional remote but one can easily be added. All Hampton Bay fans/remotes are probably set on the same frequency but in case it's not, make sure you know the switch pattern of the receiver in the fan to match the frequency of the new remote (similar to older garage remotes).

The fan is install in my sunroom and looks absolutely beautiful! I love the color! Although a remote control doesn't come with the ceiling fan, I personally love how the controls are install in the light switch. The light isn't bright, but I have four recess light which provide additional lights.
