So recently I was considering adding a ceiling fan to my room. What happened is I realized my room isn't wired for that. So it only has a single switch. I wanted to keep that switch a dimmer but I can't imagine it running the fan too well. So I started looking for ways to add the fan and keep some sort of dimmer. I came across this one (link below) that says it works wirelessly and can do up to 600 watts. (My lights are LED so I only take 21 watts of power for lights.) I know I meet requirements on that but do I need to have anything other then this and software on my devices to run it? http://www.smarthome.com/2475D/In-LineLinc-Dimmer-INSTEON-Remote-Control-In-Line-Dimmer/p.aspx

I only skimmed the stuff but I don't see where it says it operates wirelessly. Be that as it may it seems like an awful lot of trouble and money to use for one fan, especialy a ceiling fan which is not the most efficient cooling method anyway. It would be a whole lot simpler and cheaper to put in a second switch or cheaper still to run a free standing fan off an existing socket!!
