Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works as promised, but beware of one major manufacturing flaw The product works with the the Concept II fan that we purchased. It controls the light and fan as promised but there is one major flaw that I wish we knew about before hand. When you turn on the remote unit there is a blue led indicator light that is extremely bright and stays on at all times. This became problematic at night when the led light lit up our entire room. The intensity of the light is like a high powered night light. We have to cover the wall plate every night to sleep. The manufacturer claims that this light cannot be turned off or removed. We're still exploring how to block the annoying light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!! I got one last year and got TWO MORE this year. This fan is the perfect combination of form, function, and design beauty. It functions both manually and remotely to do its exact job, silently and unobtrusively. With its color and low profile design it literally disappears into the ceiling instead of providing an additional -and usually unwanted -extra focal point. If that weren't enough, the simplicity and functionality of the continuous spectrum of dim to bright light is invaluable to the flexibility of the lighting scene for any room. Beauty in simplicity: I love it!! It's a bargain at twice the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Works like a charm! This Wall Control was an added benefit to an already great fan. The 2-wire controls were easy to install for any household.

Does this include the receiver or is the receiver ordered separately?

Asked by: Roberto
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

I need to replace a mina aire control switch that has only 4 dip switches.  This one seems to have 8.  any ideas?

Asked by: Patrick FLA
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
