Ceiling fans are commonly an inductive load; Micro Switch and Micro Smart Switch have been designed to work with resistive loads only.

As such, the use of Micro Switch or Micro Smart Switch for ceiling fan control is not recommended. While some users have reported initial success, the difference between inductive loads and resistive loads will mean that either devices will eventually fail.

Aeotec Nano Switch has been designed to work with ceiling fans up to 15A which is universally compatible to resistive, capacitive, and inductive device. If looking to control a ceiling fan, we recommend that you consider Nano Switch instead.
