The controls are infuriating
I am editing my review, the original is below for transparency.
After having these fans for a year now I can say we have become more and more frustrated with the design. The remote and bracket are very cheap and flimsy. If you try to press the buttons while the remote is in the bracket it rocks about. The worst thing is operating the “dimmable” light. You have to press the light button and it comes on full blinding power. Not great when your eyes are adjusted for night time. And there is a loud BEEP. To dim the light you have to turn the ligh...t off then on again (yes really!) BEEP BEEP each time. So imagine you need to get up in the middle of the night. First you are blinded then you have to listen to a series of beeps and cop flashing light as you step through the dimming process. Madness!! Original review: When we bought our house 12 years ago we swore we would install ceiling fans...and it took Covid isolation for us to decide to finally do it! We looked at many models and read a heap of reviews and decided to pay a bit extra for the Urban 2 DC model with CCT LED light. We installed 5 in total, 4 in bedrooms and one in a living area. Running 10 hours a day at full speed one fan costs about 8 cents per day to run which is way cheaper than our aircon. Our electrician explained that the DC model would be quieter, more efficient and have more speed options. He did say the AC model was a good fan too if you decide to go that way. There is so much to love about this fan. It looks great and is incredibly stable and quiet, you only hear the breeze it generates. No wobble or vibration. It has 6 speeds and you can even reverse the direction in winter. I love the timer and often set it to go off after eg 4 hours. The light at full brightness is a very powerful cool white and there are two other options which are less bright and more warm. Dimming is a little strange, you have to turn off and on to cycle through the 3 brightness levels and it beeps each time. The light will always be full power when you turn it on, you have to adjust each time if you want it softer. The remote feels a little light / cheap but it does the job and can be wall mounted. Be aware that with the DC fan your wall switch needs to be on for the remote to work. You can turn the light on and off with the wall switch or remote but you need the remote to turn the fan on or off, change speed, dim the light etc.
