Have a fan in your home you want to turn on automatically? Right now controlled by a light switch or pull chain? In today’s article, I’m going to be converting my ceiling fan from being controlled by a wall switch and pull chain to being controlled by Z-Wave switches.
My main goals for the project were to:
- Be able to control my ceiling fan speed and light from my Home Automation system
- Automatically turn on the fan when the temperature reaches a certain level
- Control the fan locally with the switch when needed
My home office never cools down or warms up enough. I wanted to get the ceiling fan into my Home Automation system so I could automatically turn it on during hot days or mornings before I come to work in the office.
