I need to retrofit a ceiling fan to a location that only has one circuit currently controlling some LED downlights. We can't run an extra wire for the ceiling fan, so I was wondering if it was possible to switch those downlights using a remote controlled fan.
My idea is that the switch for the circuit would stay on and we would use the remote to turn on/off the fan and the downlights separately. I'm thinking I would need a relay from the fan's LED output to the downlights.
Does anyone know if something like this would work? Are the LEDs usually built into ceiling fans 12V?
Thanks for your help.
