Here's what I liked (and didn't like) about this remote:
- Once installed it works exactly as advertised
- Long range (I tried it from 50' away from another room and through a wall with windows and a glass door and was able to operate the fan just fine)
- Allows you to remotely set the fan to low, medium, or high (as well as dim or brighten the light) - all with the touch of a button
- Comes with everything you need for installation
- There is a sensor/receiver unit that is not shown in the photos that needs to be installed in the fan housing. This sensor is fairly large, and it's difficult to install for that reason. However, I looked at other remote brands and it's about the same size as the rest of them. But I don't know why these manufacturers couldn't make this part smaller so it's easier to install.
- The manufacturer says that this remote "Installs easily" and "requires no hard wiring". I feel like this is a little misleading. While it wasn't too difficult to install, you do need to have at least some basic knowledge of fan installation and electrical to do it. And it DOES require that you hard wire the sensor/receiver unit between the power line coming in to the fan and the fan wiring itself. So I'm not sure why they would say it does NOT require hard wiring. Bottom line....if you know nothing about fan installation, you might have trouble installing this. But if you can install a fan, you should have no problem wiring this remote.
- This is a minor thing, but the numbered buttons on the fan remote work like this: 1= high, 2= medium, 3= low, 0= off. Another reviewer pointed out that they thought it should be the opposite (i.e. 1= low, 2= medium, 3= high, 0= off) and I would agree. But it's not a huge deal and you get used to it.
Overall, I'm happy with this remote now that it's installed and I think you will be too.
But it's not a Westinghouse product. Sure, it carries the name, but even modern Westinghouse fans don't have an allowance for the remote receiver. You just need to shove it wherever it fits. And it's much larger than it needs to be. The receiver should have been designed to fit into a standard wiring box, there's plenty of space there and it probably exists in the majority of ceiling fan installations. But it doesn't nor is there space in my flush mount Westinghouse Comet to install it easily (someone else claims to have had no issues, so perhaps I simply didn't find the right angle.
Since it is a generic remote and isn't designed around Westinghouse fans I'd probably recommend comparing to other brands, but if you've got space in your lighting box or a large cover for your fan this model works well - even with the remote mounted on the wall.
as for the comments I've seen about the receiver being too big, it is the standard size of receiver and no, it will not work with all style ceiling fans. The wider the base the better, and if you have the resources, you can always put it above the ceiling, but that's a lot more work than I think most people are willing to do. I have been using it for about 4 months now without any issues with the signal as well. Great product!
