Fanimation’s fanSync is the future of ceiling fan control. This innovative product puts the power of your ceiling fan at your fingertips and gives you the freedom to turn your ceiling fan on or off, increase or decrease the speed, and manage the lights without being tied to a remote control. Learn how to install your fanSync device and revolutionize the way you control your home’s ceiling fans.


Step-By-Step fanSync Installation Guide

  1. Turn your ceiling fan on HIGH speed and light kit (if any) in the ON position.
  2. Disconnect the power to the ceiling fan so that you don't electrocute yourself.
  3. Disassemble your ceiling fan canopy and disconnect the existing wires from the main power leading to the fan.
  4. Remove existing remote receiver (if any) from the hangar bracket and disconnect the wires
  5. Using the connectors, connect the fanSync receiver wires to the corresponding ceiling fan wires. If possible, use the instruction manual that came with your ceiling fan as a reference.
