I have searched for a very long time for a eperiance fan dimmer. I only need one, it really doesn't seem like a complicated problem, but apparently it is. I am new to home automation, so I know very little about this. I would like dimmer that would replace the current dimmer I have, but is RF. I would also like a way I could use my infrared 880 to control it, so an infrared to RF converter would also be needed.
I have seen infrared to RF converters for z-wave, however I can find no dimmers that support fans, just lights. The dimmer I had before my current one was not designed for fans, and made a loud hum whenever the fan was in use.
For a dimmer to work with a fan, is there something special about the circuitry, or is it just a dimmer designed for a greater electrical load?
Thank you for your time and patience, I am new to home automation, and wold love advice from people with more knowledge and experience.
