Answer This Question

A:  I don't understand what you mean by "subscription??" I just put installed my fans, flipped the wall switch for current and then control the lights and fans from the remotes.I have 1 in my home office and the other 1 in my "Man cave/ dressing room.They work just fine!

by|Aug 4, 2020

A:  Thank you for your question. The remote functions as a standard remote without the Wink Hub or a Wink subscription. For a smart ceiling fan remote solution, we would recommend the universal WiFi ceiling fan remote (model #99434). It is compatible with Google, Alexa, and SmartThings with no subscriptions or additional equipment required.

    A:  At the moment we are paying the subscription on that ceiling fan but after buying a brand new ceiling fan I discovered that Hampton bay has updated remotes that work strictly with google or Alexa and will probably keep the ceiling fan and just replace the remote inside eventually.

    A:  Thank you for your question. Yes, this remote can be used as a standard remote without the hub or app.

      A:  Yes, you can just use this as a normal remote. When connectivity between the hub and the part that goes the canopy gets out of whack, the remote works just fine.

      by|Jul 30, 2020

        A:  Yes. If not connected to a Zigbee hub, the controller will still function over RF from the remote.

        Q:Does this work with Smartthings Hub?
        by|Jun 5, 2020

        Answer This Question

        A:  It does, but you need to install a custom device handler and custom smart app for full functionality. Easy to do. Quick search on google will find those pretty quick along with directions. Also, but a GE Zigbee plug and plug it in between the fan and smartthings hub. It act as a repeater. That helps with keeping it connected to your smartthings network

        by|Jun 6, 2020

          A:  Yes. You will need to install a custom device handler though.

          by|Jun 5, 2020

          A:  Thank you for your question. No, this remote is not designed to work with SmartThings. Additionally, Wink now requires a subscription for the smart features to work. We would suggest the Universal WiFi remote (model # 99434) which is compatible with SmartThings as well as Google and Alexa.

            A:  Yes. To use wink at all there will be a fee. There is limited success doing custom code in SmartThings. I have 2. I would look at other products if lookin at something other than wink and the monthly fee.

            by|May 16, 2020

              A:  Thank you for your question. Yes, Wink is a subscription service. The remote will operate as a standard remote without the subscription, but to use any of the smart technology, you will need a Wink subscription. We would If you are looking for a Smart remote, we would suggest the Universal Smart WiFi Remote (model #99434). The Wifi remote will connect with Alexa, Google, and SmartThings. Once connected with Alexa or Google Home you will be able to control a fan and lights with your voice. There is also an app available with no subscription needed.

              by|May 15, 2020

                A:  Yup, Without a subscription Wink will not work. This will work on other hubs like Hubitat and SmartThings.

                  A:  If you use Wink, yes. If you use SmartThings or any other free platform that supports Zigbee, no.

                  by|May 16, 2020

                  A:  No, you can use other platforms for this like smartthings, Hubitat, home assistant and likely others I’m not familiar with using. Any of those platforms will offer far more than Wink

                    Do not ever use with a dimmer switch (even if you'll never adjust it); Otherwise great
                    I can't edit my previous review, so here are some updated thoughts. Things I like: I bought two of these. They work with Zigbee-based smart home solutions (Hubitat, Smartthings, Wink). Responds to Google Assistant which is great when I am half-asleep in a dark room. They're priced attractively with the discount, and uses standard AAA batteries (Hunter remote uses a weird size that cost $10 to replace) in the remote. The remote works well for family members who do not know how to control via smart home. Zigbee signal strength has been discussed extensively on smart home forums for this device and the consensus is that it's not great. However in my experience they never gave me any trouble as long as you installed the antenna attached to the ceiling outside the canopy (see photo). Since the controller's big end can only be located opposite the socket of the hanging bracket of the fan, you may wish to plan out the install if the antenna appearance bothers you. Otherwise, you can install a Zigbee repeater in the same room or DYI replace the antenna. The remote antenna wire (long black) seems to work fine located within the canopy. The instructions for pairing with smart home are really sparse. You need to power cycle the device at 3-second intervals 10 times (5 on-off cycles) and do this precisely with a stopwatch. The lights will not flash UNTIL you enter pairing mode on your hub and it successfully connects. Lastly but perhaps most importantly, do not ever use these with any sort of dimmer switch. One of the controllers was connected to a dimmer for the prior fixture and it misbehaved (fan humming, lights strobing, wrong intensity at settings, etc.) until I took a multimeter to it and discovered it was spitting out random voltages. I never thought this would be a problem since I always left the dimmer on max. A $2 regular switch resolved all issues. Kudos for the dimmer not breaking the controller in the month or two that I had it installed.

                      The remote works great and has great integration via the wink hub app I would given it 5 stars. Difficult to install the cover back on the fan after hooking it up. Voice assistant integration is for the light only, no fan controls when using amazon echo (Alexa) and google home

                      Overall, this is a good product. My only complaint is that it adds a light to the lighting section. I already had the bedroom light (attached to the fan) on a Lutron dimmer. Now there are two icons that control the same light due to it adding a fan/light in the fan section and a “light bulb” in the lighting section. The installation could not be much easier. The remote and app work well. We have a surface/flush mount fan so I was a little concerned that the reception for the remote and app wouldn't be very good. I was not able to place either antenna (wink or remote) outside the base, but that doesn't seem to have hurt the reception. Both the hub and remote connect and work well despite the antennas being concealed. The operation is very easy and memorizes the last setting used. I was a little skeptical, but I've been very pleasantly surprised by how well this works. I would recommend this for any Wink user.

                        I really desired to connect it to a smart home system; however, Wink is virtually unavailable. I opted for a SmartThings hub instead and I am having trouble connecting the two. But as a stand-alone system it works great. I did add an Everbilt 3/8 in. Clear Adhesive Bumper Pad from Home Depot to the light button to make it easy to find in the dark.

                        Works excellent and tied perfectly into my smart home system controlled by Wink. Installed on a 4 year old fan and everything programmed and worked perfectly. LED bulbs work great with the module as well. Make sure your fan as a slot on the base for the module to fit. Otherwise, you may run into fitment issues. Also, make sure you use the screw for the antenna; it will not should with the double sided tape, even on regular ceilings.

                        If the fan isn't on a switch you will have a hard time pairing with Wink. The process to pair requires power to be cut from the fan (not just pressing the power button the remote). I learned this after installing and calling the wink support number and spending hours on the phone. I had to connect a temporary switch between the power line and the fan in order to pair with wink. then discount the switch and reassemble the fan. I had the Zigbee antenna inside the fan canopy which caused it to be disconnected more than it was online. I had to disassemble the fan once again, cut a slot in the canopy and mount the antenna as far outside as possible. Now it holds a steady connection and it typically online. If I knew all this up front I may have rated it higher. lessons learned..

                        I bought two of these devices to integrate into my home automation platform, plus control the light and fans I have remotely. One of the fan housings it was difficult to insert this but that issue is more to do with the fan manufacturer. I was able to manage to get it into the canopy and cover the sensor. The setup was a breeze. Speaking of breeze, the continuous breeze setting (3 wavy lines) on the remote, is a remarkable feature that definitely improves the comfort in my bedroom.

                        bought two. Both work just fine. It took me a little while to figure out how to install - the instructions are not terrific, and I had an unusual installation - two fans, using the remotes to control the fans only; lights on a common light switch.NOTE: I DID NOT SEE THAT THE DEVICE IS INDOOR ONLY ON THE WEBSITE. I installed them anyway.
