Welcome to

If the remote has DIP Switches, you could change the settings on one fan. It has to be changed in the remote and on the control in the fan. The one in the fan is usually mounted in the canopy at the ceiling box.

The DIP switch settings have to match. The DIP Switch is usually in the battery compartment of the handheld remote.
