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 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

I have had two of these in the last 3 years for the same fan. After a while they have become erratic, turning themselves on/off on their own. I mentioned this to a Home Depot employee in the light/fan department and his response to me was "that they are not made to throw against the wall." (which, by the way, was never how I used the item)

Although I have very little experience working with electrical wires and connections, I was considering attempting the install anyway since the company advertises an easy install; however, I had some trouble figuring out how to get into my fan's electronics, so I ended up hiring an electrician to come help. The install took him maybe 30 minutes, but most of that time was spent figuring out my fan, not the remote.
Other than that, the remote has been working how I expected it would: I push its buttons, and things happen with my fan.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by goodfoottoo Great device, can even be put in your pocket, just make sure to put it back when you are done!
I should have known that it would come to this, since almost everything can be remotely controlled! It is a very nice feature, however, especially if you are entering a room without a wall switch (like my living room); I can just touch the remote that is placed at the same height as a light switch on my wall as I enter my living room and the light comes on! I can also touch one of the speeds on the remote and the fan turns on, speeds up or down, depending upon what I touched. I think it is a great innovation, and had one installed for my ceiling fan in my kitchen. I am also seriously considering remotes for the ceiling fans in my bedroom and my sister's bedroom as we are both disabled and it can be difficult, sometimes, to get up and change fan or light settings when we aren't feeling well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by alice THIS WORKS VERY WELL
This worked well for our needs. We have two fans that do not have wall switches. This solved the problem. Not only can we turn the fan and light on and off, we can also dim the lights.
