I finally installed a couple of the SBB universal kits on 2 fans (the kits you can get at Home Depot).
I noticed something now that I don’t remember seeing before - the tiny LEDs indicating fan speed on the remote do not seem to sync up between what is in the app.
For instance, I set the fan on speed 4 via the remote, change the speed to 3 in the app, press the fan speed button on the remote, and the fan goes to speed 1 and the remote LED cycles down also to speed 1.
I assume by design the remote is only a transmitter vs a transceiver, and therefore cannot know / receive status updates.
In a way, this argues the point that maybe a remote should not have LEDs indicating any certain speed, and the SBB protocol should only send an action of “increase speed with over max value wraparound” when a SBB transmitter sends the “my fan speed button got pressed” signal.
