Light fan control switch


I have a pair of ceiling fans that were installed in series with 12/2 wire single run. Lights and fans only works off pull cards. I had a fan in a pervious house that had a smart controller that ran both fan and light from 12/2 that controlled both speed and dimmer thru this single wire with low voltage signals. Does anyone know on a setup that would do that after being installed in off the shelf fan light combo?

Sure. All you need is a remote and a receiver. Lowes or Home Depot sells them. $30.00.

The remote and reciever is the only options I have seen without rewiring. With two fans, perhaps an extra reciever would work?
