Can this switch be mounted horizontally, or does it have to be mounted vertically??

Either position should work. The sensor does not need to be oriented in a particular direction.

I have a Airking motion sensor exhaust fan in my bathroom. Can this switch be installed and still...

Asked by skeeter December 2, 2020

Answer

Hi skeeter, no the motion sensor in the fan requires power to be on at the fan at all times, so the DewStop switch would need be left ON all the time and that defeats your purpose. We feel you will prefer the DewStop switch over the motion. The DewStop switch will run the fan when you need it and you can manual on/off and set the timer. This is better then a fan that turns on every time it sees motion. A fan pulls out your heated and cooled air that you pay to create. This makes motion an expensive way to keep your room dry. DewStop runs the fan only when its steamy or humid and turns off.

Why does the packaging falsely claim the product can "Replace ANY existing switch" and that "No Added Wiring Needed."

It says this because wireing has to have a Hot, Common and Ground acording to building code. But as we all know, the Common and Ground is the same thing.

With a heater/fan combo, will the DewStop go on when the heater is on?

Asked by Pat September 17, 2020

Answer

Thank you for your question, Pat. The DewStop switch must be wired to the fan motor only. The DewStop switch cannot be wired to the high amperage of a heater. DewStop will do a great job to run your fan and keep your room dry. The heater will work on its own switch.

will this switch work with fan with light

Asked by ken September 6, 2020

Answer

Yes. The switch simply turns the power on when the moisture level reaches the threshold you set, and turns it off when the level is below the threshold. You can also manually turn the power on even when the moisture level is low. It will turn the power off after a set duration and by that time the moisture level is below the set threshold. It does not care how the power is consumed, so it can control a fan, a fan with a light.

Will it turn on if it automatically when it senses humidity

It should not click. Yours seems to be not normal.

Do you have to mount it higher than a typical light switch to get the sensor to work?

Asked by Rediranch August 11, 2020

Answers

This unit is designed to work at standard electrical switch height. Mounting higher may not be in compliance with your local codes.

Money well spent
My husband and I often forget to turn on the fan. We were planning a bathroom remodel but the fans that included a humidity sensor were expensive and large. Our bathroom is small I chose a highly rated basic fan and bought this sensor. For the first few days we remembered to turn the fan on and I love that it turns itself off after a set amount of time. The new fan is so quite that the light on the switch is helpful to know it’s running. Today I forgot to turn on the fan and looked up mid shower to see it was running. This is a great little product and well worth the money. Our contractor installed it so I can’t say anything on that front but they didn’t mention any issues.

dewstop bath fan/light fixture
I replaced the fan/ light switch with this and it works as it should. I am still fine tuning the condensation sensor and trying to figure the best run time when the switch is manually used. My bath is pretty humid do to lack of caring from last owner or hired contractor. A fixed bathroom sounds pricey in the future though. Great bathroom fan/ light switch so far.

This item was pretty easy to install. Most difficult part was getting all the wires to go back in the fixture box,as also light switch in same box. Waited overnight for the sealant to dry inside fixture box. This product only needs to sense the air inside bathroom, not inside interior walls to perform correctly. My wife can just start her shower and after a couple of minutes the product starts the exhaust fan and allows it to run until it determines the humidity is low enough. Homeowner can adjust length of time and/or sensitivity to moisture to suit your needs. My wife is very happy with it.

Easy to install, works well and as expected. My only issue with it is that the tab to remove to get at the settings dials has a fiddly tool that I think would get lost easily...additionally, you have to remove the cover plate to get at it. It took a couple of goes to get the settings right, and was a bit of a pain to have to take the cover plate off to make the change, then reassemble. The blue light is a nice touch

Works Great
I've had these installed for about a month now and they are working terrific. I purchased 3 of them for my 3 bathrooms and it is so nice to have the fans turn on and off automatically for humidity and just a quick push of the button for 30 minutes or so of smells if needed.. Panasonic version of this is way over priced.

I bought these to replace a standard timer switch because my kids would frequently not turn on the fan during showers. They seem to operate as expected. My complaint is that they are cheaply made with a plastic body as opposed to aluminum like most switches. The problem with plastic is that tabs are too thick and make the wall plate separate from the wall. Additionally, the plate that covers the controls is almost impossible to remove once the cover is installed, so you may want to install the cover after you make final adjustments. Overall the construction seems below average and wonder how long it will last.

The DewStop Condensation Fan Control was super easy to install and even easier to use. The controls allow you to adjust the sensitivity and the time the fan actually works. This is perfect for those who take super hot showers and don't want to leave the fan running afterwards. Excess condensation and mold stand no chance with this condensation fan control on the job. It kicks on as soon as it feels the dew drops and then turns itself off when it's all clear. A great addition for any bathroom, anywhere! Get yourself one now.
