Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fixitup Doesn't work
My installer tried multiple times over two days and could not get this remote to pair with a recently purchased Hunter fan, even though the fan box stated it was compatible with remotes.
This remote has no light indicators, so we couldn't even tell if the battery was working. There is no visual indicator to tell if it tried to pair and failed or wasn't even trying. We have no idea what part was not working and no way to troubleshoot it.
Note that this remote comes with a box that must be installed inside the ceiling fan housing. The remote then is supposed to pair with that box.
I returned it. I was disappointed to pay someone for this work and get zero result from it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Controls 3 Fans Simultenously
I'm using this product with three Hampton Bay fans.
First caveat: I discovered I needed to buy three remotes (including receivers) because manufacturer doesnt sell receivers separately.
Second caveat: the receiver fits into the mounting cradle of the fan and in my case would only fit it one way. Its very snug. So if you are installing yourself, experiment to find that one position before wiring.
Third caveat: Pairing three fans to one remote can be tricky. Be patient. Right now, I cant dim incandescent bulbs even though fan operation is flawless.
Bottom line: Controlling three fans simultenously and remotely is very convenient and of course, the coolness factor is there...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hot Universal 3-speed ceiling dimmable remote & receiver
The remote is a visual tool & can not be used in the dark at the bedside. At night you need to turn on a light to see the pad to turn on the fan at a select setting.
With my last remote, at my bedside, I could feel the different settings in the dark & turn on the fan at a select setting without having to see the pad visually or turn on a light.
The remote dims the lights & shuts off, but when pressed again to turn the lights on, it turns on dim.
This is worthless.
Hunter fan people recommended this remote over the phone to replace my last remote. It is a poor substitute from my previous 3 speed dimmable ceiling fan remote.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JD Difficult to Install, Then Stopped Working
Had to remove the entire fan in order to install the controller in the ceiling. Massive pain. After getting it installed, I found the dimmer control very difficult to work. You have to hold it down for about 10 seconds to get it to dim down and then hold it another 10 seconds to brighten up. Very inconvenient.
Then, we lost power about 5 weeks after install. The dimmer function has stopped working altogether. This thing is a piece of junk.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snake Beware of dead battery
Just purchased today. Install was easy enough. However, the battery that came with the remote was DOA, which caused an additional half hour of wiring troubleshooting. Swapped out the battery for S&G's and viola, it worked. Everything else is working as intended, for now...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Richk DEFECTIVE AFTER ONE USE
After I paid to have my new Hampton Bay fan installed with this remote, we used this one time in this spare room. Went to use it this morning and nothing.
I should have paid attention to the reviews on this page. Took it out myself and re-wired w/o the remote.
Returning tomorrow for refund
