This is the remote control for a fan. The remote allows you to control the settings of the device, including the speed (3 speeds total), the oscillating mode, and sleep and breeze modes. This remote control is black in color with off-white rubber buttons, and fits inside the palm of your hand for easy control. The remote is sourced directly from the original manufacturer, giving you peace of mind that it will work perfectly with your oscillating fan. This is the remote control only; other components are sold separately.
