Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great controls! Controls went perfectly into our wall to replace the control from the original ceiling light. They match perfectly and are incredibly easy to use. Great look, very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great fan, easy installation! We put this fan in our two small bedrooms for our children. Our electrician was so impressed with the quality and loved how easy the installation was! Everything was wired and ready to go! Beautiful fan, great light and the wall unit we ordered with it is perfect. Highly recommend for small space!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alexey from Convenient It is very convenient to have a remote on the wall where a light switch normally is: you can't loose it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Works As Promised Nice addition for my ceiling fan. While I had to change the receiver and remote settings because interference was causing the lights to go on periodically, it was easy and the remote now works just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Streamlined control We bought this wall control unit because we didn't want to be dependent on a remote, which can get misplaced. It works beautifully; even remembers the last light level. If you prefer to have the remote as a backup; no problem. Although read instructions carefully on finding the right frequency, especially if you have more of same type of fan in the house. Otherwise, a single remote will control all fans.

I need to replace a mina aire control switch that has only 4 dip switches. This one seems to have 8. any ideas?
Minka Aire has been updating their fan controls and now feature 256 bit learning receivers. Because the new controllers are no longer compatible with older models, this can create a bit of confusion in knowing how the two models compare. There are a couple key ways to distinguish the new from the old, which can be accessed by viewing the "overview" tab on this product page. If you would like some more clarification beyond this, it may be worthwhile to contact tech support at Minka Aire at 1 (800) 221-7977. Please reach out to us again if we can provide any additional information. Thanks for contacting us! Parin YLighting Customer Service

Is the wall plate a standard Decora style plate?
Yes this plate is a standard style, so should anything happen to the plate that comes with the control, or if it cracks for any reason, you will be able to replace it in any local home department store.

Does this include the receiver or is the receiver ordered separately?
Thank you for your question. The WCS212 Aire Control is only compatible with Minka Aire fans. Your Minka Aire fan will have a receiver unit already installed. You can sync up the wall control with your fan, and there are instructions included. The hand-held remote is purchased separately to work in conjunction with the wall unit if you wish. Depending on when you purchased the Minka Aire fan, there may be additional instructions for older models. But we are happy to help! For tech support on syncing up your wall unit or remote, you can contact the Minka Group at 800-221-7977. If you have other questions on which wall unit will work for your existing fan, please call one of our knowledgeable sales people for assistance. 866-842-6209 Brian, YLighting Customer Support

My family room has three switches for the overhead light. I've picked out a Minka Aire fan and am wondering if I can get three wall switches to control the same unit.
Hi Janye. That's a great question. The short answer is yes! That is possible. The longer explanation is that it is a little tricky, and would work with a "4 way switch." This should only be attempted by a licensed electrician. And, we want to make sure you get the correct wall model for your project. For this kind of thing, we always suggest you speak with one of our sales people. They can check with the manufacturer directly and answer any questions you may have. You can reach us at the number below! Brian - YLiving Customer Support 866-842-6209
