On/Off Switch for Fan
« on: July 23, 2011, 07:00:45 pm »
Is there a low cost On/Off z-wave switch for a fan?  I don't need to control multiple speeds, just on and off.  I will let speed control be handled at the fan pull string.


Can you use a On/Off light switch?  IF so is there a way to force or configure a dimmer switch to only use 100% and 0%?  I still have a few GE dimmers left over from the Radio Shack Sale.

I use a regular Leviton  15 amp z-wave wall switch for all my fans. Works just fine. The fans have remotes so if I want to change the speed I just use that for speed and direction.

I'd use a relay-based on/off switch (i.e. not something that is rated for just incandescent lighting), such as the suggested Leviton VRS15.
Dezwaved at the moment...

The Evolve LFM-20(20 amp) or LSM-15(15 amp) or the Jasco 45609 relay or the Leviton VRS15-1L are a the devices to look at.
