More Fan Control

• Hate walking into a stuffy room at the end of the day? Schedule your fan to turn on and circulate the air before you get home.
• Love falling asleep to with the fan on? But HATE waking up cold? No problem! Set the sleep timer so your fan will shut down shortly after you do.
• Going out of town? Set the security feature to randomly turn the ceiling fan light on and off between 6-10 pm for the days you are away.

Ratings and Reviews
Great fan, terrible app
Fan is great. One thing I’d change is to diffuse bulb more - looking at LED’s directly is like looking into the sun.
App needs a rethink and rewrite. First, it prompts us to give our email address to turn on more features. That’s just terrible - this is a fan, not a video game. I feel like I paid for the thing already, but now I have to get spam in order to use all the features. Yuk.
So I gave my email address to ‘see the extra features, because the lights won’t dim, and now the fans have disappeared from the app. They’re visible in Apple’s Home app, but now gone from this one. So no extra features, and awaiting spam.
I deleted the app, then reinstalled it, thinking I’d start over. But upon reinstalling, the app somehow ‘remembered’ my login credentials (Apple, how can an app remember my credentials after I delete it from my phone and reinstall it?) and logged me in automatically, still with the fans disappeared.
I’m really rooting for Hunter because the idea is great, and being able to reverse the fans without climbing a ladder is amazing. But the app deserves a flame. Good news is they can rethink and rewrite.
Fellow users, good luck wading through the weeds of this app.
Program and fan work great if you can get through setup.
Setup wasn't as straightforward as it should have been, but it worked great once I figured it out. The fan is not capable of connecting to a 5ghz network. It would try to connect through the 2.4ghz network, but always failed until I switched my phone down to the 2.4ghz network. Once I switched my phone to the slower network it set up just fine. I was able to switch my phone back to the faster 5ghz after setup and it still works. Love being able to say "Hey Siri turn ceiling fan light on" without having to grab my phone. :-)
Buggy app but once it’s setup it works great!
I almost gave up connecting the fan to WiFi/HomeKit but I’m glad I didn’t. The app is unintuitive, just horrible. To get it to work I first tried adding it directly into HomeKit, this didn’t work of course. So I downloaded the app, continued w fewer features, clicked on the room, chose add device and waited forever for it to show up. It never does, no matter how many times you power off/on. So I clicked “I did this already” and it took me right into HomeKit setup and it works great now. Very responsive, a great fan now. Oh, and you need your phone to be on a 2.4 network. Anyways, I hope this helps!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
