Customer Reviews

Huge Improvement Over Just an On/Off Switch Our on/off switch is near the bedroom door so it's nice to be able to control both the fan light and fan functions from a control (that replaces the wall switch) when entering and leaving the room AND by using the remote on the night stand.The original light switch only complicated everything (for the worse). If the light and/or fan were turned off from the remote, the wall switch was useless, plus making the mistake of turning the switch off then made the remote useless and required getting out of bed to turn the switch on in order to use the remote.Re: complaints about the built-in LED backlight being too bright in a dark, I haven't noticed it. It's possible Minka corrected the problem or some people are much more sensitive to low-level light.A few reviewers have complained about the two light switches/buttons. We have a Minka-Aire fan in the dining room with two lights (one over and one under the fan blades). The smaller of the two round light buttons on the wall control works the upper light and the larger one works the lower light.NOTE: I ordered the WCS212 by mistake and was concerned that it might not work with the RCS223 remote and receiver purchased with the fan (Minka-Aire F522-WH, Mojo White 52" Ceiling Fan with Light). Minka-Aire offers two types of remotes, one for a small group of fans with an electrical reverse feature and one for fans that require manual switching to reverse blade directions (which is what the F522 has). When I saw the reverse feature on the WCS212 I called Minka and a (snotty) support person told me I'd purchased the wrong wall control (the card that came with the remote lists the WCS213). I had to interrupt him to ask, "All I want to know is will the WCS212 work with the RCS223?" He finally said that it would but that the reverse feature wouldn't work with my fan (which is what I expected).Because I didn't have a lot of confidence in the guy's expertise, before opening the packaging I was able to compare the eight (two sets of four) toggle switches with the eight on the remote. Seeing they were exactly the same, I took a shot. Installation took five minutes and it works perfectly. 5Updated While this appeared to be a WCS212 unit (which seemed to work fine initially), it subsequently (1) lost its "sync" with the fan it's wired to and (2) started affecting a different fan in the house. When I opened the wall back up to adjust the frequency of the transmitter, I found that this unit has no frequency switch (a bank of toggles) at all -- just a featureless housing all around. Whatever this unit is, it's not a WCS212. Clearly there are times when checking the package contents before buying is appropriate, and this turns out to have been one of those times. Very disappointedUPDATE: Apparently the product has been redesigned and the online manuals have NOT been updated; the toggles for the frequency adjustment have been moved to the front of the device panel under the inner cover; that way you don't have to take the thing out of the electrical box to make adjustments. Sorry for the earlier writeup; however, it appears that the receiver in the fan has now died and I have had to contact MinkaAire directly to get the part, Hopefully that will take care of the issue -- apparently, the receivers are at least as likely to die as the wall units 4Functions ok (duplicates the remote control), but ergonomics can be improved a lot The control pad is dominated by the fan control. Unfortunately, the equally important light on-off buttons are tiny and thus relatively hard to hit. Also, the dimming control is poorly thought-out. Regardless of which button you press (the smaller on button at the top, or the slightly larger off button below), the light always starts to dim first. Why not brighten if you press the on button, and dim if you press the off button? Also, once you reach either max bright or max dim, the cycle doesn't stop there. The dimming/brightening function then reverses direction. So you have to be quick to release the button if you want max brightness.The on-off buttons also operated oddly. You'd think that pressing on would turn on the light, and pressing off would turn off the light. But in fact, you can press either button and the light will turn on if off, and off if on. So what's the point of having two separate buttons then? Minka Aire could have made just one large button for light control. Tap for on or off. Press and hold for dimming/brightening (although I would prefer a rocker switch style so that you can select either dimming or brightening).At least the blue night light is at an appropriate brightness. It is no brighter than say a small 5mm power indicator LED on your typical electronics. The downslide is that the blue light is located at the bottom slider switch, instead of backlighting the light on/off buttons. It is baffling as to why Minka Aire chose to backlight the slider switch, which is probably the least important switch, especially at night.it's a shame that the Minka Aire Concept II ceiling fans require this product if you want a wall switch control. I would have preferred one of the many Decora ceiling fan switch controls that are available, which have much better ergonomics. 3Nice unit just get someone to install it for you. Pros: Not too many words on this. It does what it says and does it right. Installs fine. i can go on about design but you see the picture. You like how it looks buy it you don't then don't. I like it.Cons: I don't understand why a fuse will be inside the unit. If you open it I believe you void the warranty. The fuse is soldered inside the unit. Why? Unless you can install it yourself you would have to call an electrician if your unit goes out? Fortunately for me this was an installation since I'm an electrician. I've installed hundreds of switches, controllers, etc... This however is a lot more sensitive. It blew a fuse, yes certainly my fault for not turning off the breaker but nothing like this had ever happened. I open the darn thing and there it is...a blown fuse. I ended up buying another unit.Why the four stars. Well, I really liked how it looked and performed once installed. 4Great wall control for Minka Aire fans. Works great with compatible Minka Aire fans. Have not tried it with other fan brands. This unit is pretty easy to install, but I would warn you to make sure that you have plenty of room and a deep box to mount it in.This switch operates like the hand-held, battery-operated remotes that came with the Minka Aire fans, but uses the hot wire instead of a battery to power the transmitter. Make sure you set the DIP switches for an isolated frequency if you happen to have more than one fan. The Light buttons allow you to toggle and dim (on fans with compatible, dimmable light fixtures). The 5-way D-pad allows you to choose High, Medium or Low fan speeds, stop the fan, and with compatible reversible fans, you can also reverse the fan remotely. There is also a slide switch at the bottom that toggles power to the switch and fan on and off, which seems a little strange, but I suppose it's there to make it more difficult for someone to unintentionally turn the light or fan on when you want it to remain off.Came with white and biscuit/beige colored cover plates and switch plates. The controller is large and requires a deep box, so make sure you have adequate clearance for installation. In a multi-gang box with lots of wires you might have some trouble squeezing it in. 5We ordered multiple wall controls for different rooms We ordered multiple wall control switches for 3 different rooms to operate 3 different fans. All was straight forward, except the paper instructions don t indicate that you need to pry off the front cover to reveal the frequency switches, which need to be set differently so that fans in different rooms are controlled separately. If you don t do this, then all switches will operate ALL fans in your home by default (if the main power toggle/blue light switch is turned on). If you are wanting more than one Minka Aire fan/wall switch, then here s what s important to note: First and most important, the main power (blue light) on all wall switches must be turned OFF in all rooms of the home except the one you are programming. Pry the front cover off the wall switch off to reveal the tiny frequency switches and choose a number (say #5). Flip the 5th frequency switch, then press the center button on the front of the wall switch for 5 seconds until the fan light blinks on and off. The wall switch is now programmed to operate only that fan. Next you should program the remote. Remove the battery cover to reveal the frequency switches. IMPORTANT: They are actually numbered 1-8 (not 2 sets of 1-4, which is misleading!). Remembering they are actually 1-8, flip the 5th frequency switch. Then hold the center button on the front of the REMOTE down for 5 seconds until the fan light blinks on and off. Now both the wall switch and remote will operate only that fan. Lastly, turn the main power (blue light) on the front of the wall switch OFF before moving on to program the other fans/wall switches/remotes in your home. Make sure to use a different frequency # in each room, and write them down somewhere. Hope this helps! 4Not very compatible with newer MinkAire Fans I got a MinkaA Aire ceiling fan and rather than the remote only I wanted something in wall for our guests to use. I didn t like the idea that the remote could be lost or damaged. If you have a remote with 6 speed settings, then this in-wall solution is not for you. The dimmer did not function at all and the three speed settings were abysmal compared to the remote. I was fine giving up 6 speeds to 3, but what I didn t realize was the top setting on this in-wall remote equals about a 3 on my remote control, so the fan was very slow even on the highest setting and the lowest setting was basically a stop I expected better control for a compatible fan but I suppose this really is just unverisal. To top it off it s not pretty and the blue light is a bit of an eyesore. Returned this and mounted the remote control on the wall for now. 2Bright blue light - small buttons Based on other reviews, I had hoped that they had done something about the bright blue light that comes out of the very bottom that turns the entire switch on and off. Regardless, we had never been very sensitive to digital lights from the electronics so I thought it would be fine. I was so wrong and it was a very expensive mistake since it was installed by an electrician. First, there is no reason to have a bright blue neon light that is that bright - it is at least twice as bright as lighted switches we have in the house, and maybe 3x as bright as lights from the electronics. Second, the light does not signal any of the very small and awkwardly placed buttons that actually operate the unit. The very small buttons at the top of the switch (about the size of a pencil eraser) turn the lights on and off. The even smaller button in the middle turns off the fan. We have this as the main light switch for the room and it is impossible to just walk in the room and flip on the light - you really have to search and be careful by precisely hitting the button in the dead center in order for it to operate. I don't know why you would need to completely disable the entire switch when you have an on/off switch for the both the light and the fan, but it is just insane to have a mind numbing blue light coming from there. We tried taping it off but in addition to being ugly, you could still still the light. Bottom line, we have to turn off the entire switch before going to bed instead of just turning off the light. Worst purchase in recent memory - especially galling since there is no reason for the light! 2Easy Peasy I ordered this as an addition to the fan we purchased because with our setup we weren't going to be able to connect the wall plug-in right away.The setup to link it to the fan is very simple and the remote works perfectly. I panicked a little because it didn't work the first time I tried to make it connect to the fan, worried that the fan installation wasn't right. Fortunately the first thing I checked was the battery for the remote. It was in protective plastic and had a tiny amount of corrosion on it. Once those were removed it was a simple push button to sync it to the fan and it has worked perfectly since. 5Nice Controllers These do with they advertise, they control the fan. They look nice and so far all of them have worked. They are a remote control which is mounted in your wall. I like them because you are not always walking around looking for the remote. You do not have to change batteries because they use the AC power. They have dip switches to change frequencies so that you can have an individual switch control an individual fan. However, the annoying thing is that there are no DIP switches on the fan. You have to go through a process of disconnecting the power to the fan then reconnecting the power and holding down the stop button for several seconds so that the fan receiver can pair with the wall controller. It would've been easier just to put DIP switches on the fans and set them both to the same combination. 4
