I’m about to start redecorating my new home, and want to replace the old ceiling fans with some that look a little more modern.
I’m a little wary on what to buy, to make sure that the remote will work with Bond… had some teething troubles with my fan in my old home (in short, Bond Tech support said that the remote was the wrong frequency and wouldn’t work but, magically, it did).
My fiancee really wanted the Monte Carlo Maverick II, but from everything I’ve read, it’s the wrong frequency to work with Bond, and I can’t find a suitable remote and receiver (6 speed with reverse function). So I vetoed it, and now I’m in the doghouse.
The Bond FAQs for compatible remote kits list a grand total of, er, 3 - which apparently are only suitable for Hampton Bay or Harbor Breeze. I don’t think we particularly like the style of the SBB fans we have seen, and the nearest approximation (Big Ass’ Haiku) is a fair bit more expensive.
So my question is: how can I quickly/ easily find other universal remote kits that are in the correct frequency for Bond?
