Would love to see you guys release a ceiling fan controller to replace the wall switch.
I second this. We need a wemo solution for this as I have not found an easy solution to have a speed controller that can be adjusted by an app as well as have the same speed control on the physical wall switch.
I would love to be able to control my ceiling fan! I was so excited when the news came out of a dimmer switch, but from what I understand it is not rated to control the speed of a ceiling fan. A dimmer switch that is ceiling fan rated would be absolutely awesome!
Many fan remote kits have a small box that fits into the ceiling bracket and a separate remote control. It would be great if there were a WeMo box that I could use to replace the remote kit: that would mean both an in-fan-bracket box and a remote control of some kind. The remote could be in-wall or wireless.
It would also be possible to replace a 1-gang or 2-gang switch with a wifi enabled in-wall fan control. E.g. Hunter has the SimpleConnect system which has a retrofit box, but it has some disadvantages: It requires a separate hub to control the fans, and that hub only connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth, so it isn't capable of being controled by things like Alexa. They only allow the Alexa/WiFi integration with a few of their new fans, no WiFi retrofit kit.
