MinkaAire RC212 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hand Held Remote This was simply an order for an additional ceiling fan remote. But we are quite pleased with the two Minka Aire ceiling fans we have. And the fact that one can have and easily program multiple remotes for multiple fans (easy install, too!) keeps our rooms cool in the summer and warm in the winter at a remarkable low energy consumption.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to our fan purchase We purchased a beautiful Minka fan. Our challenge was we have a large, beautiful armoire that sits in front of our switch for overhead room lighting. We had relied on nightstand lamps, but with the addition of the new fan and incorporated light, we knew we didn't want to keep reaching behind the armoire to turn the fan on or use the overhead light. This remote solved everything. We use this as the primary mechanism to operate the fan and the light. It is simple and so easy to operate. Perfect convenience and well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great We keep the remote in the kitchen and use it to control the light and fan on the back patio...works great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I purchased this product so our guests could could control an existing fan remotely. Our home builder had the foresight to mark the wall switches with the dip switch settings so it could not be easier to set the remote to match the fan's controller. This is the second remote that I ordered and both work perfectly. Lighting direct had the best price so the choice of where to purchase was simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remote works with wall switch Purchased the remote with the MinkaAire fan because my kids don't want to have to get out of bed to turn the fan or light off or on - teenagers! The remote looks exactly like the wall switch so no confusion, and both remote and wall switch work interchangeably which is good as the kids have a way of misplacing remotes.

The MinkaAire RC212 is the remote control only.

Will this work with the Minka Aire Acero??

The MinkaAire RC212 will work just fine with the MinkaAire Acero.

Will the Delano II Ceiling Fan and Light operate with only the handheld MinkaAire RC212 remote (without the wired wall switch)?

The MinkaAire RC212 is compatible with the Delano II, but it's not included so you will need to order that in addition to the fan.

The MinkaAire RC212 will work with both the Napoli and the Romantic Breeze fan.

Will the MinkaAire RC212 work with the Artemis?

The MinkaAire RC212 will work with the Artemis fan.

Will This Remote Operate A Progress Ceiling? Also, does it come with the receiver that mounts above the fan? Will it work with an existing 2--wire set up , & still operate the fan independently from the light?

This item has not been tested with Progress items, so we cannot guarantee if it would work. What fan do you want it to work with? Please respond to erogers@build.com.

Will this remote work with the Minka-Aire Lineage Ceiling Fan

The MinkaAire RC212 will work with the Lineage fan.

Will this remote work with the San Francisco without the wall control that it came with? I have the fan wired to a regular 3 way switch, but need a remote to control speeds.

The MinkaAire RC212 is not compatible with the San Francisco. You instead need the RC213 or WC213.

Does the RC212 remote come with interchangeable white and ivory plate/covers like the WC212 wall mounted remote?

The MinkaAire RC212 does not come with interchangeable plate covers, only the wall mount has that feature.

How do you reverse the fan directions?

The MinkaAire RC212 has a reverse button, its the two arrows that make a circle.

my minka f602 fan (bought in 2008) needs a new receiver. it uses wc210 wall mount control. what replacement receiver do i need?

The replacement receiver for your Minka F602 fan is item P001022500.

The MinkaAire RC212 will work with the Cirque as long as you have the green receiver. If it is the black receiver then you need the RC210.

What is the difference between the MinkaAire RC210, RC212 and RC213?

The MinkaAire RC212 is the newer model which will have a green receiver on the fan. RC210 is the older model which will have a black receiver. The RC213 is a hand controller for the newer RC212 model.

What is needed to equip a mika aire new era fan for remote operation

The MinkaAire RC212 is simply a remote I suggest using the RC223, which includes the remote and necessary receiver.

Will this remote work with model #23855 and model #F563-SP-ORB.

The MinkaAire RC212 will work with the MinkaAire F563-SP-ORB, but not the Hunter 23855. The Hunter 23855 would need to use a Hunter remote control.
