Answer: 
No, it will only turn the fan on and off. You'll need to use your fan's pull string to adjust the speed.

Answer: 
No, Just ao and off.
It also needs the wall switch on and if you switch it off, you need to use the remote again.

can I add the Hunter remote to a non-Hunter, non-remote ceiling light/fan?

I'd like to basically use the remote as a switch for a non-remote fan/light I just purchased.

Answer: 
Yes you can, but I wouldn't recommend this brand for any fan - hunter brand or otherwise. It is known to spontaneously turn on the fan light and fan in the middle of the night. I'm going to buy new other brand remotes today and replace all four of mine - what a pain. I've also changed the frequency code on the remote and nothing resolves it.

Most likely. The receiver just needs to fit inside the fan canopy.

Hunter Universal remotes are designed to work on all fans; it will come with a universal receiver in which this portion should be installed inside of the canopy of the unit.

Is there a wall mount holder for model 27157? Since it basically serves as an on/off switch. Also the light switch cannot operate the fan/light?

I haven't been able to find a holder for this remote. I bought a plastic toothbrush holder shaped like 1/2 a cup that hangs on the wall to hold it by the switch. I don't know what you mean by the light switch - the one on the wall or the one on the remote?

Answer: 
Model 27157 only comes with a hand held remote and a remote receiver in which should be installed in the canopy of the fan. This unit is only designed for the basic on/off function of the fan and light control. To operate various speeds the pull chain must be used.

Answer: 
You have to take the fan totally apart (if it's a Hunter) in my experience just to install the remote (or change the code settings) which is a total pain. If you plan to use this remote with a new fan you haven't yet installed, do it at the same time you install the fan. It works with SOME Hunter models.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy this remote unless you want it to wake you at 3am! I have 4 ceiling fans wired with this remote. All spontaneously turn themselves on (never off) in the middle of the night randomly. I'm changed the remote antenna codes multiple times (which involves basically taking the entire fan apart) and nothing resolves the problem. This is Hunter's only recommendation to solve the problem. After searching the web for possible solutions I found TONS of customer complaints with the exact same problem. I will never buy another Hunter product again. Apparently this also happens with Hunter remotes that come with their fans as well as this model. May 26, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Garbage I'm an electrician and have installed many remote kits. After purchasing these for a client and installing the first one, I found that it only turns the lights on and off (no dimming feature) and only turns the fan on and off (no speed control feature.) The package is misleading because it says, "non-dimming feature, works great with CFL's." Saying that it is a "feature" makes it sound like it is an option. The purpose of a remote kit is to eliminate the use of a pull chain but in the directions it says "to change the fans speed, slowly pull the fan pull-chain switch to select the desired speed." If you are doing that manually, why would you need a remote? It wasted my time because I had to uninstall it and return them and get another brand. August 23, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Buy This Remote I have used the Hampton and now this Hunter. The Hampton type allow you to switch the light on and off at the wall. When the light is on ( or fan ) you can then use the remote. This Hunter unit is Basic but when the light is on and you use the wall switch the light goes off but cannot be switched back on without the remote. The relay needs power to hold it's state. This is a pain. Spend the extra $10 to buy the Hampton and it will work as a remote and still retain wall switch function. July 22, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by stopped working in few hours It was easy to install, direction were clear. After installing and testing, I stepped out. After couple of hours when I came back and tried to turn on light with the remote, it didn't work. I tried the fan and same. Tried few things - turned off light from the switch, turned off mains, but still didn't work. Then I disconnected the receiver and re-connected all wiring. Tried different jumper settings - and finally returned it to HomeDepot. September 27, 2010
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OK product, horrible instructions. Once I realized I had to connect this thing according to the diagram and not the wiring labels (which are mislabled in the instructions AND on the wires), I still had to reinstall it so the antenna is pointing down (instead of pushed up into the attic per the instructions). Finally works but it was way more trouble than it should've been. I would only recommend this if I'm able to explain how it SHOULD be installed. February 8, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Too few combinations It's beautiful, and it works so well that my neighbors and I turn each others lights on and off all the time. It only has 24 different combinations, so in a neighborhood like mine, it's impossible to find a code not in use. It's driving me crazy, and I have to find a replacement. If you own acreage, you may not have this problem. Good luck!!! March 23, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked fine for the price I got this on a local HD store clearance. Pros: - It was a simple wrire it and it worked. - positive acknowledgement of switching, as LED within switch lights up when turning lights or fan ON. - depending on your proximity to fan/light you'll hear an audible "click" when either light or fan are turned OFF. Cons: - No choices on the remote for different fan speeds unless you pull the ceiling fan chain and manually choose a different setting. The remote is strictly a device for turning ON or OFF. -No choices for light settings or dimming. The remote is strictly a device for turning ON or OFF. -Remote uses one 12 volt MN21/A23 battery. Conclusion: - I have my fan setting on high and my lights on high. This remote simply toggles either fan or light ON or OFF. - if you need to change fan speeds or light settings via the remote, then you will need a different remote. - I wasn't paying attention when I bought this, so I didn't notice its limitations. But it was on clearance for like $6.00 so it worked well as a replacement for a different brand of remote unit that recently died on me. January 25, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of time and money Fan and lights turn on and off by themselves all the time, I've tried multiple different codes and now it won't work at all. Called Tech Support- they claim defective receiver. I have 2 that do the same thing though! Returning to Home Depot today and picking up a quality product. I am surprised the Hunter name is on this piece of junk! November 14, 2012
