The Caseta Smart Fan Speed Control is the only HomeKit switch that can adjust your fan's speed. Lutron's switch lets you run your fan at four different speeds with just a tap or via Siri. This switch also has a favorite fan speed button right in the center for when physical control is easier to use. As a result, it's one of the best HomeKit accessories around.
Eve's light switch features a clean, minimal design that ditches buttons for a large touchpad so you can tap anywhere to turn your fan on and off. This switch has a handy status indicator light beneath the touchpad, which helps guide you to the switch when it's dark.
The meross Smart Light Switch offers a remote app and voice control, allowing you to turn the switch on/off from anywhere. In our review, we loved how easy it was to install this switch and how it doesn't require a hub to set up. We also like how it supports not just HomeKit, but also Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and SmartThings.
This dual-rocker from Aqara is the perfect solution for those with only one switch on the wall. With Aqara's switch, you can wire your fan's light to one button and the fan motor to the other to control both independently. Aqara's switch also does not require a neutral wire in your electrical box, making it an excellent fit for older homes.
Lutron's other ceiling fan solution is a simple two-button switch that costs slightly less than its full-fledged fan control. This setup doesn't control your fan speeds, but it gets the job done by turning on and off your fan quickly and reliably. The switch is also easy to install, thanks to built-in wires.
The Sylvania Smart+ In-Wall Switch is one of the few HomeKit switches that utilize Bluetooth for connectivity. Bluetooth creates a direct connection to HomeKit, meaning it works even without an internet connection if your iOS device is around. Local connectivity makes Sylvania's switch great for trailers or other off-the-grid housing.
Best HomeKit switches for ceiling fans
HomeKit switches for ceiling fans are a great way to get the air moving in your home. Automation can keep your air moving throughout the day, preventing it from becoming stuffy, and speed adjustments provide the ultimate convenience.
We love the Lutron Caseta Fan Speed Control for its ability to set fan speeds without pulling a chain that could be hard to reach. This switch can crank things up instantly using the Home app or your voice using Siri when things get a little hot. Combined with Lutron's legendary reliability and responsiveness, this fan switch is one of the best HomeKit accessories around.
Want a switch that allows you to control your fan and light separately? Then consider the Aqara's dual-rocker Smart Light Switch, which offers two independent buttons in one easy-to-install package. Just remember that it requires an Aqara hub to make all of the magic happen.
