I've had this in my 3C tracker for a while and the price just dropped. Not sure if this price drop is permanent, but it usually runs around $45 so this is around a 15% drop. This is the lowest price since the all-time low of $31.49 back in November of 2018.

Anyone know if this can handle two fans on one switch? My living room was wired that way but not many speed controllers can do two fans.

Also, what's everyone's zwave controller? I had a universal remote that also controlled zwave but it won't be supported soon (won't work) so I got rid of it.
It should. The manual says no more than two. It's rated for 2.5 amps.

I use a zwave stick and home assistant, otherwise moving a lot of things off to WiFi utilizing mqtt.

This has been the biggest downside of home automation for me. There are some hacks and some good attempts by Bond and. Bond is the closest but the lack of light state is infuriating especially for Alexa control. Bond's answer was for everyone at home to use the app and never touch a light switch or remote. That is not going to happen at our house even though everyone loves their smartphone and smarthome wizardry.

We don't have an attic so shoving two controllers into the canopy does not work well.
Agreed... I'm probably have a similar setup to you. I have Bond with wall switches in the bedrooms. It works good enough, but yes, no state control.

I have Hue lights in the kitchen, and no wall switch for the fan, so I only need Bond for the fan. I got the remote only control for that one.

I guess the one nice thing about the Hampton wall controls is that they don't need a neutral wire. This thing wouldn't work for me.

The echo plus only has zigbee, so yes you need a separate hub to talk zwave.

Really needs a hub.

Doesnt look like that does speed control though, just on/off.

If the Zooz can do light dimming and fan speed in one switch I'd be very happy.

I have a Zooz 3 way dimmer and while I don't love the dimming process from the switch it works great by voice/app. There weren't many options for 3 way smart dimmers either.
Interested to see when the fan one comes out and how much it'll be.

Anything Z-Wave requires a hub.

You need a hub. It won't work with Alexa w/o a hub.

Some actual fans are intended to work this way, (remote only, no switch) which is kind of annoying. I bought a bunch of breezemore fans from home depot, which are VERY nice fans, highly energy efficient and no motor noise nor the sound of chains clanging against the light, and I kept them for that reason alone, but the manual specifically states that the intent on it is to use only the remote and not a wall switch.

Also annoying, it's not possible to use these fans with separate light and fan switches (ok for large rooms, very annoying for bedrooms) without taking apart the fan assembly and clipping the blue load wire to connect it to the switch load wire directly, effectively bypassing the remote control entirely.

Fortunately, the aformentioned modification works rather well with bond, especially given I'm using hue bulbs, so that issue ends up being moot. Though bond wouldn't have been too bad given these fans have discreet light on and off commands, except Google Assistant only uses the toggle command (bond can and should fix that, but I've no need to lobby for it anymore.)

How do you people afford your electric bills?
3 ways.
1 - I have a job, and I work hard for things I want/need.
2 - I prioritize my spending. I probably don't need satellite TV or a Lexus if I'm worrying about my electricity bill.
3 - I run an extension cable from my neighbor's house to my stuff.

I got these a while ago to start the home automation process but still haven't gotten around to installing them. Unfortunately one of my fans is a DC motor which these do not work with so I'll probably need to sell at least one off now. If anyone is interested and in the DC metro area let me know. I think the only option if you have a DC motor fan is to get a bond as far as I know.
