Smart Home Ceiling Fan Automation

So I am looking to set automate an existing ceiling fan as well and then later automate a few new ceiling fans we are adding.

 

 

Goals

Be able to control the fan with Alexa

Have a remote control or local override so that Alexa or a smart phone tablet is not required.

 

Wifi / Z-wave / Zigbee

Currently Everyone is waiting on this Wink Enabled Control Kit to be released

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Hampton-Bay-Universal-Wink-Enabled-White-Ceiling-Fan-Premier-Remote-Control-99432/206591100

From what I can tell people have been waiting for this for a year or so.

 

So after a lot of looking around, it appears the only way to accomplish what I want is to order the replacement parts from King of Fans

 

Here is what you need

 

A zigbee Fan controller (this gets mounted inside of the fan)

A remote controller (this can either be a hand held remote or a wall mounted controller)

 

Decide which type of remote controll you want and then call this number

 

King of Fans — 1-800-749-3267

Original Fan   (this is the fan that has the parts you need)

Model Number #43260

UPC Code 82392 43260

 

Parts to Order

Wink enabled Fan controller MR101Z (J)

 

Remote Control  (not required except for override)

Basic Black Remote Control TR227A (K) $25

Remote Control with Temperature on it   http://www.homedepot.com/p/Hampton-Bay-Universal-Ceiling-Fan-Thermostatic-Remote-68108/205846345

Wall Control  http://www.homedepot.com/p/Hampton-Bay-Universal-Ceiling-Fan-Wireless-Wall-Control-68109/205846346

 

The way this set up works is the   Fan controller is mounted in the fan and tells the fan what to do.

 

The fan controller becomes a device that can be controlled by both a SmartThings hub (using the Zigbee protocol) or the Remote Control

 

Alexa can then control the devices on the smartthing hub.
