Wireless smart technology allows for easy access to features such as speed and light settings, motor direction and energy saving settings with your Android phone or iPhone.

One of the great advantages of having a wifi ceiling fan is the ability to control your ceiling fan’s settings from anywhere in the house. Imagine being able to turn on a ceiling fan in any room even if you are not physically present. This would be a great option for children’s rooms, great rooms with guests and more. Being able to control lighting is also a great feature. Having the ability to set timers for lights and adjusting brightness are two advantages that come to mind when it comes to choosing a wifi ceiling fan over a traditional fan.
