There are mainly three types of controllers pertaining to Kichler ceiling fans: the wall switch, which is one of the simplest options. A remote control is bundled with almost all the latest Kichler ceiling fans. The third one is the oldest, which is a pull cord that comes with almost all traditional and classic fan types.
If we talk about Kichler Ceiling Fan Wall Controls, then Kichler fans come with a wall switch that is installed on the switch board. It can be easily controlled by just twisting the buttons in some fans. Other fans come with only a speed mechanism to make things simpler. The best option in terms of choosing a fan control is to consult an electrician who can guide you after looking at the situations.
If you choose to go with a remote control, then it will be convenient for you to change the settings without having to move. All the controls of the fans can be easily managed with the remote whether it is fan control or the lights installed on it. You don’t need to go to the switch board to make changes when you have a remote control in your hand.
If we talk about the wall control then it is more expensive than a remote control option. As there will be the need of extra wires for that, which increases the cost. Remote controls are quite affordable. There will not be a huge difference between a wall control and remote control but consulting an electrician is a good option.
Durability of a Kichler Ceiling Fan Wall Control vs. a Remote Control
If we talk about durability, then a wall control will have greater durability then a standard Kichler ceiling fan remote. Why is this? Well, the wall control can’t be dropped on the floor – it’s mounted to the wall. The only way it’s going to get broken over time is if someone literally walks up and tries to rip the wall control from the wall – and that’s not so easy to do. Typically, it’s out of the reach of kids as it’s mounted a little higher up the wall – so that works. Since it can’t be dropped on the floor, it’ll last a lot longer then your standard ceiling fan remote.

Kichler Ceiling Fan Wall Control Reviews
This wall control system will work in place of the pull chain for your Kichler ceiling fan. In fact, it will work with most fans (can be other brands too) as long as it’s a pullchain fan today. This switch is UL wet listed. This means it can be exposed to sun, water spray and rain too so it can be used in open porch designs. The finish of the switch is durable against the elements like snow or rainy weather. This switch therefore works for both indoor applications as well as outdoor requirements as well.
If you want a simple switch to just turn the fan from speeds 1-2-3-4, then this wall switch is for you. Of course – it goes without saying that you have to own a ceiling fan that is capable of four speeds. Anything less (or more) and this switch will not make sense. This wall switch can control up to 3 fans – so you could turn them all on, off, high speed or lower speeds etc. all from this one wall remote.
