    Caseta Wireless and installing a ceiling fan

    I have my home switched over to caseta wireless switches, which I love. I have no neutral in any of my switches, so the caseta wireless dimmer switches work great for me, and I have installed them all over my house, wired into LED lights.

    I'd like to switch out my ceiling lights in my office and bedroom with a ceiling fan/light combo in each. Can I use my existing switches for this purpose? or is there a better switch for these to control fan speed, too?

    Thanks

    There is no Caseta fan speed control. No plans on one in the future, either. Lutron suggests a Homekit enabled fan.

    This is a big bone of contention for the people who support Caseta.

    Will my current caseta dimmer switch work with a run of the mill ceiling fan with light? I guess I would have to use the fan controls to control speed, etc...

    It should, but you can't gaurantee the state the fan will take when the Caseta turns on. If the fan has integrated controls, you may want to just run those. Will it turn on to last state or off? You'll have to try it out. If it's a pull chain fan, then it will return to last state.

    In short, you can always ensure the fan is off with Caseta, but when Caseta is on- who knows?

    Please let me know what happens to the fan when you install the caseta switch. I have 2 Fanimation Studio Collection Slinger v2 72inch fans.

    Hey guys, similar scenario. I have replaced all my light switches with Caseta wireless and love it. I do have two room with fan/light combos. Does lutron ever plan on having a caseta integrated fan/light control? I don't mind waiting if this is on the roadmap within the next 6 months. I don't want to go out and buy another fan/light combo, and I don't want to start another smart bridge network just to solve fans (buying another hub, and z-wave switches). Do you have any other suggestions? Im using Google Home for the integration point. Already bought a few cheap desk lamp switches, so I am OK using iFTTT if there is a similar approach.

    Thanks!
