I am looking for recommendation of Fan Switch to my Bathroom
"smart" switches that are rated for fans are few and far between. Best choice I found was the lutron caseta switch. Very few z-wave switches can handle anything but a lighting load, not sure about the options for zigbee.
For multispeed fans yes there's the GE/Jasco and the HomeSeer "Fan Control" switches. But if it's just a standard 120V vent fan I've not had issues with a normal on/off switch just don't use a dimmer. As mentioned the Lutron Caseta on/off switch works well also I have that installed currently.
If the switch is for an exhaust fan, then any non-dimmer switch that uses a relay to turn on the load should work fine. I use a GE/Jasco Z-Wave Plus switch to control a bathroom exhaust fan.
I use this, and have for over a years.
I use the Qubino Flush2 (fitting name for a WC install.)
One relay drives the light, the other drives the fan. The point being, any RELAY device for a Fan because of the motor.
I use these behind "pretty switches" that I am not going to swap out.
pretty switch = Legrand Adorne line
I use the Zwave Plus GE switch (regular paddles). Works great. For $10 more dollars, may want to add motion. I will be putting this instead since i know my kids will forget the switch as i did when I was kid.
I think this could be a carry over from the days when bathroom fans might sometimes have heat lamps in them. You don't see that much anymore (except my parents do actually have it in both their bathrooms), and quite often when you do see it, they're on separate switches. Still, I do recall using bathrooms in the past where the heat lamp always came on with the fan, which I found odd, and it was probably mis-wired.
Most bathroom fans don't draw very much in comparison to an old style bathroom fixture with multiple incandescent bulbs across the length of a wide, double-vanity mirror.
I know this is an old thread, but I figured I would give it a shot: I know NOT to use dimmers, but I actually have 2 extra GE/Jasco/Honeywell Z wave fan speed controllers, I was wondering would they be fine to use for bathroom exhaust fans. I do not know if the exhaust fans are variable speed.
