    The media could not be loaded.  “Alexa, turn the ceiling fan on high””Alexa turn the living room light on to 10 percent”Oh I love this fan, not only is it quiet and moved alot of air, you have 3 ways to control it. 1) with the included remote control.2) with the Fansio app3) voice command through Alexa or Google and WiFi.Assembly and Installation is well illustrated and straight forward, it wasn’t the easiest or hardest fan I’ve installed. Although I would have appreciated a bit larger ceiling cover to easier accommodate some working space. I ended up assembling the fan completely then hung it, instead of trying to install the blades and light fixture with my hands above my head. The lead wires are about 3′ longer than the down rod it comes with so you could install it on higher ceilings with the purchase of a longer down rod. THESE DIRECTIONS ARE NOT IN THE MANUAL THAT COMES WITH THE FAN1) After you install the fan and make sure it is working with the remote, is when you download the app, FansIO, on your phone or tablet.2) Follow the prompts to create a sign in.3) Touch the “add device” button or select the plus sign in the upper right corner, a menu will pop open.4). Scroll to the bottom and select “other”, then the “other WiFi” icon.5) Select your WiFi, (must be 2.4ghz, NOT 5ghz), then enter your WiFi password.6). This next screen that pops up asks to make sure the light is flashing, DISREGARD THE QUESTION, IF YOUR REMOTE CONTROL IS WORKING WITH THE FAN, IT IS THE SAME AS IF A LIGHT WAS FLASHING, NEXT CLICK THE CIRCLE CONFIRMING A LIGHT IS FLASHING.7) Allow up to 3 minutes for the app to find the ceiling fan, once it does you will be able to rename to whatever you want in the app.CONNECTING TO ALEXA In the Alexa app, add a device like you would with any smart home item. So when the app searches for new devices, you’ll be looking for 2. One is the ceiling fan or whatever you renamed it to, the 2nd showed up as “light15″ for me. Then I renamed it to living room light. I called the customer service number on the front of the manual, when I was having trouble getting past the ” a light should be blinking” part on the app. Let me tell you, what wonderful customer support I received from Candice and Iesha! Although they only can help with the mechanical end of the fan, I was happy to have needed to talk with them, Thank you ladies! I ended up contacting the FansIO developer via the app store, and wow customer service from James followed suit with my dealings from the ladies. He got me lined out quickly and voila, I can now tell alexa to control the fan and light from bed.Man I love this thing, and the folks behind the development. Now my fan works seamlessly through the FansIO app, voice control and the remote control.I give the fan 5 stars and the folks that helped me out 10!Thank you!

    The media could not be loaded. I’m not very good at assembling, so I spent a lot of time, and I installed the two blades upside down.However, all of this is worth it, and the quality of this ceiling fan is very good.It works very quietly, and most importantly, it can be controlled with a mobile phone.I can finally turn it off in bed without getting out of bed.

  4. Nadine H.

    This is definitely a upgrade to any smart home in the making. Love the fact that this is controlled by the app and also was very easy to install. Color was a good fit for our house. Definitely would recommend

    The media could not be loaded.  When I saw the book of instructions I got a bit scared of the installation but once you start is not that bad. The fan is very heavy. It brings a strong wire and I recommend using it to secure it to a beam. The provided screw for this wire bent as I was putting it in. I had to grab one from my spares on the garage but securing that wire will allow you to have the fan hanging without the fear of falling and breaking anything. The installation of the electrical wires is simple. Ground, live and neutral to the control module box. The box brings a lot of length of the cables. The sad part is that the box hardly fits on the top of the fan closure. Once I measured what I needed for the connections I cut the rest of the slack. It was a mission to get the electrical plastic module into the top closure. Very tight fit. I had to squeeze each cable in and slowly press the closure up to secure everything in place. The base for the fan is strong and once you secure that wire we spoke about you will be good. The downside for me is the light. The led light is yellow about 2700k in color and not bright at all. Not a problem. I looked into it and they have led replacement lamps that can be modified and attached for about 30 bucks and give off 5000k led bright white light. But the cover that goes over the led light also takes away light brightness. If the cover was a different or a lighter color material maybe it would give off more light. The controller was easy to use. Just installed the batteries and it started to work right away. It’s responsive and fast. This fan spins fast and is very silent. Doesn’t shake or rattle. You can’t hardly tell the fan is on. The difference in the air circulation in this room is amazing. I have not had a chance to pair it up with the app or Alexa as it claims it can be done. But I will try it and update the review when I do. Overall great fan. Just wished the led light was white in color and a lot brighter. If you don’t mind modifying it and changing it or don’t mind the yellow lighting then this is perfect for you. But most of these modern fans come with yellow led lighting. I don’t know why. Hope this review helps. Great find.

    Very sophisticated and elegant looking. Doesn’t make any noise, you don’t hear it but you can feel the breeze. It is worth it.

  7. Shaun

    I really like the way this light looks and it is well made. I am glad it came with a pre-programmed remote control with batteries. You can choose between 2 different colors just by turning the blades over. It runs quiet and circulates the air good. It puts out a decent amount of light. It is a nice addition to my dining room.

  8. derek

    This is a great modern looking fan for our media room. The instructions are well written and ordered correctly without having to go back and re-do anything. I have installed a few ceiling fans and this one was one of the easiest, especially installing fan blades. The design is great and appear engineered well. The only thing I don’t like is the light brightness. It’s adequate lighting but not super bright. If you have other light sources like lamps or canned ceiling lights this unit is sufficient.

    This is a large (52-inch blade size) contemporary fan. It’s a fairly avant gard design with its upside-down-metal-bowl light fixture, though not as much so as some contemporary ceiling fans (which is probably a help in allowing it to look good in a variety of rooms). I personally prefer the silver oak blade color to the dark maple. But you have the choice. There are a number of nice things about this fan, and a few things to be aware of.Positives:1) The fan is quiet and powerful. Not loud unless installed wrong–which includes using it on a circuit with a dimmer or rheostat2) Prominence fans are well reviewed for basic operation and reliability. We haven’t had this fan for years yet so I can’t personally attest to this, but reviews here on Amazon and elsewhere (Walmart, Overstock, Lowes) are generally positive.3) IMPORTANT! This fan has an integrated remote as well as the ability for smart control via wifi through the Fansio app (which you will need to download and install on your phone to use with wifi control). I got this fan for the remote control and wifi ability, wanting both because remotes over time always seem to disappear or get broken.4) Integrated remote and wifi control means this ceiling fan can be retrofitted into an existing two-wire/one switch setup while still allowing control of both the light and fan without pull chains. I dislike pull chains and this allows you to do away with them even if you don’t have two wiring circuits run from separate switches to control the light and fan separately.5) Easy installation on a flat or slanted ceiling. Accommodates a ceiling slant of up to seventeen degrees before requiring a different base (which is sold separately).6. Fan has three speeds and is reversible, but reverse requires flipping a switch on the fan body.Be aware of:1) This fan’s integrated LED light is 3000K, which is on the warm side rather than blueish white. Warm white is 2700K, normal incandescent color. This is a bit cooler, but still on the yellowish side of the spectrum.2) This fan’s light is an integrated LED. You wonder why that matters? I’m not a fan of integrated LEDs. I prefer replaceable LEDs. All over my house supposedly “lifetime” LED bulbs are flickering and dying after just a year of use.3) DO NOT use this fan on a circuit with a rheostat or dimmer upstream from it. It will cause noise and flicker, and you will think the fan broken. Use the integrated dimmer.4) This is a fan for inside and is not rated for outdoor use.5) The Fansio app requires you to be on a 2.4Ghz wifi circuit. Once the app is installed and you are logged in, the app searches for the fan’s wifi signal, connects to it, and then gives the fan your wifi channel’s name and password before returning to the primary router where it can then control the fan.
