Can you wire ceiling fan for dual switch and still use remote?
Asked Jul 8, 2009, 06:12 AM
I have a ceiling fan that has a remote that works fine. However, when entering the room, I would like to turn the light on with the wall switch rather than the remote at night. I keep the remote at the nightstand. Existing setup is two switches on wall at entrance that use to control one for fan and other for light. I capped the black at the celing and used the red. I can turn on the light once at the wall if the light was on and I had used the switch to turn off the fan and light. However, it will not work the second time. I hope I'm making sense. In other words, it cycles one time and will not turn on again. I have to turn the light on with the remote, turn off the fan and light with the wall switch. Then turn on once again and repeat. Sounds like I may need to use the other switch (black). Thanks
