    Dual fan / light dimmer in single gang foramt

    I have almost in every room a fan/light that all currently operated by non-smart dual fan/light dimmer switches in a single gang format. Unfortunately I can't use the Insteon fan/light unit with some of these fans and so having an insteon version of a dual fan/light dimmer in a single gang format would be idea.

    Why can't you use the FanLinc?

      I've never seen a single-gang control like that. Do you have a link?

      I think the closest you'll get is a FanLinc in each canopy and a KeypadLinc in the single-gang spot.

          The second link at HD for the Lutron dual fan & light switch is fantastic. I've always wondered how come Smartlabs hasn't considered doing the same?

            Now that I've read the details, it's much like the FanLinc-KeypadLinc. And it's rated for incandescent only. I'm currently using a Fanlinc successfully with LED bulbs

              I currently have the Lutron Maestro units that stusviews posted above. My problem is that most of the fans don't have space to put the fanlinc in place, I really don't want to remove the replace the fans. Having a unit that had the same look and form factor as the Lutron Maestro would be ideal.

                The Lutron Maestro also has a canopy module. Are you saying that it's much smaller than the FanLinc?

                  I'm not using any canopy module, it's simply two dimmer switches in a compact format.

                    The Lutron Maestro requires a canopy module, the Lutron Skylark does not. But the SkyLark requires that a load wire for both the light and the fan be in the switch box. The FanLinc is meant for the situation where there is only one load wire, although it can be used where there are two load wires.
