Hunter 27186 Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adequate plus I use two of these in our living room for two seperate fan/light systems. Both switches work well but periodicly suffer from the same phantom on/off events reported else where on the web. Considering there is a comm tower in line of site through the living room bay window and our proximity to a region airport these remote contol switches work fairly reliably and have for the past 8 years. Perfect no, but above average..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ingenious wall control unit I like this unit. It has several options for operating the ceiling fan in one wall unit. For example : light on only, light on with fan operating in speeds low, medium, or high, light off with fan operating in speeds low, medium, high. But since this a recent purchase, would like to continue to test operation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incompatible with Compact Fluorescent bulbs I ordered this switch because the lighting direct website recommended it with a combination ceiling fan and light. The light purchased cannot accomodate an incandescent bulb. Unfortunately, this switch only works with an incandesdent bulb. With the CFC bulb, the light constantly flashes, almost like a strobe light, even when no dimming has been applied. A professional electrician installed both the light and the switch, and could not get the light to stop flashing. If the website had not incorrectly recommended this switch, I would not have wasted my time or my money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I almost gave this a 4 because unfortunately a couple items need to be mentioned that I did not notice when ordering 5 of these (with 5 fans as well). 1. This unit requires a 12v battery which does not come with the controller. 2. The instructions were sort of vague but essentially, this is a remote-type controller!. That is, there is a master switch on the control (wall unit - needed of course). Then the other buttons are operable only when a battery is in place. A person could actually unsnap the controller out and with battery in, you could use as a remote. It's an interesting design. I have yet to get all "5" of the controllers installed, but I am confident this will do the job in this old house.
