READY

Mike :

Hi... just a moment, please, while I access the specs on your switch.

Mike :

Ok... that is just a stack switch (2 switches in one) not a remote/rf type device... For this to work, you'll need to have the necessary wiring, which would be a black, red, white, and ground in the ceiling box. From the sound of things, you just have a black, white, and ground. Is that correct?

Customer:

YES

Mike :

I see... so, unfortunately, you're not going to be able to use separate switches to control the fan and light. You can use this switch, or the standard switch that was installed before. You'll just have one switch that controls both the fan and light at the same time. That is, of course, unless you want to run a new wire from the fan to the switch box.

Customer:
