    Thanks Dave. I need diagram for wiring & Product. i don’t like remote. i want control speed of fan in different two places, number of product is not a matter. i want only the control.

  2. Dave Rongey says:

    Yes you can do this by installing the right wiring and / or the right dimmer switches. There are a few possibilities including wireless remote controls or wall switches. There are brands that have compatible dimmer switches that you may want to consider.
