It is hardwired into the actual wires that connect the power from the junction box in the ceiling to the wires on the fan itself. From that connection the receiver stays tucked away in the housing and receives an RF signal from the remote control - thus controlling the functions of the fan (lights, speed, dimming, on/off, etc.) Keep in mind that if you have a light switch that turns power off to the unit, it needs to remain on or wired with continuous power; properly terminated and covered with a wall plate in order for the remote to work.
Yes, if you had the same exact model then as long as you set the dip switches (the set of 4 tiny switches you can move up or down, next to the battery compartment) to match your previous remote, you should be good to go.
Thank you for your question. In general, this remote is designed to work with most downrod ceiling fans. There are a few exceptions, such as DC motor fans or fans that have a built-in receiver that can not be replaced. This remote includes a receiver that needs to be installed in the mounting bracket/canopy of the fan. Without knowing exactly which fan you are referencing, we can not answer with 100% accuracy.

Thank you for your question. The one option for the operation you are describing would be to wire the receiver to a standard on/off toggle style switch. That would allow you to turn the fan and light on/off simultaneously. The remote receiver can not be connected to a speed control switch. Using a speed control switch with the receiver will damage the unit. The other option would be to wire the fan's light wire to a switch and wire the remote receiver to the house constant supply wire. This would enable you to use the switch to turn the light on/off (but would omit light control from the remote). Connecting this way would allow the receiver's thermostatic feature to continue to control the fan but you would not be able to control the fan speed via a switch..
Thank you for your question. Yes, as long as it is the same exact remote system.
Thank you for your question. The remote operates in the 300mHz range.
I'm assuming you mean LED lights installed in the ceiling fan itself. And yes, I have LED lights in mine and it works just fine. No issues.
This model doesn't come with a wall mount holder.
Thank you for your question. Yes, as long as it is the same remote model and the dip switches are set to the same settings as the other remote.
