It kinda went like this...
New couch and loveseat led to a new entertainment center (okay there wasn't a old one), these have set the esthetic for the room. The thermostat was replaced with an ecobee3, which with IFTTT and LIfe360 gave me true Home, Away behavior based on ground truth in lieu of a schedule. This was all followed by a Hunter Ceiling Fan (pull chains only) wired to the old dual rotary switches in the wall.
Decided I wanted smart control over that fan.
After trading messages with @mike.maxwell, I decided to use Lutron Pico's to maintain and enhance the rooms esthetic. A Hubitat Elevation (HE) should arrive soon.
So it will be Pico -> Lutron Caseta L-BDGPRO2-WH -> SmartBridge Pro -> HE -> <insert fan motor control here>
An overzealous late night purchase resulting in a Lutron switch and wall plate, I suspect I'll never use now. While, lighting seems to be straight forward enough, ceiling fans appear to be another issue entirely.
There is plenty of space under the fans cowl as it's a Hunter Stanley Park 52" close mount. The wall switches occupy a single gang box.
The gang box is planned to be covered by one Lutron Pico with another next to it (mounted directly to the wall) to provide WAF. The light (dimmable) could be controlled simply by a Lutron Caseta.
What should be used to control the fan speed?
- Hubitat Elevation
- Hunter Stanley Park Low Profiles 52" w/ Light
- Lutron - PICO-WBX-ADAPT - Wall Mount for Pico Remote
- Lutron - PJ2-3BRL-BL-L01R - Pico Remote Control
- Lutron - L-BDGPRO2-WH - Smart Bridge Pro2
- Lutron - CW-2-BR - Claro Wallplate
- Universal Wink Enabled White Ceiling Fan Premier Remote Control
- GE ZigBee White Remote Control [Added to improve Zigbee connectivity)
- Hampton Bay Zigbee Fan Controller [Native]
- Switched to native driver
- Advanced Button Controller
- ABC Button Mapping
- Lutron Integrator
Original dual rotary switch. Pull chains on fan were set on high and tucked up inside the fan. Switch contacts were failing, time for an upgrade.
Controller - Low Profile Fan
Rubber pads, provided to drop fan support and provide space between ceiling and canopy, were not used. Controller does fit in the space above the fan motor in the bracket but, that would have left the Zigbee antenna under the canopy. Command strips were used to mount Controller to ceiling and a notch was cut in the canopy to allow the Zigbee antenna to be exposed.
2 black picos with a brown wall plate. Left controls the light and right the fan.
