Remote light switch to control ceiling fan


Ok, here's the long and the short of it... I have to move a light switch (one that controls a ceiling fan) from one wall to another. This other wall, every possible way to get power from the switch to the fan would require major demolition.

Seems like every remote light switch I see, operates as a dimmer switch, which is a no-no for ceiling fans. Help!! Thanks!

Also I should note that I can easily get power to a light switch on this wall via a nearby outlet... it's getting from the switch to the ceiling fan that is the issue.

Not sure what you mean about the remote switches working like dimmers but I have four fans on the wireless remotes and they all work out fine. I am using three different types of remote switches and they all seem to work fine, no one is better or worse than the others.

It's not a remote control that I'm looking for... it's a switch in the wall that I'm looking for.
