How do I enable the motion sensor on my fan?

The motion sensor detects when you enter or leave a room, turning the fan, light, or both on and off automatically.

Note: If you want your fan or light to turn on when you enter the room, even if you manually turned it off before leaving the room, be sure to enable Return to Auto. For more details, see What is Return to Auto?

Note: The Light setting is available only if the room contains fans with lights.

ENABLING THE MOTION SENSOR for the fan

  1. In the Big Ass Fans app, tap a fan on the Home screen, and then tap.
  2. Make sure the Fan tab is selected at the top of the screen.
  3. Tap Fan Auto, and then tap Motion.
  4. If you want the fan to turn on when motion is detected and off when no motion is detected, toggle Motion Sense to enable it.
  5. Tap Motion Timeout, and then select how long the fan should stay on after motion is no longer detected. The minimum setting is one minute.
  6. Turn on Fan Auto from your Bluetooth remote or in the app. Your fan will now turn on when you’re in the room and off when you’re not.

ENABLING THE MOTION SENSOR FOR THE LIGHT

  1. In the Big Ass Fans app, tap a fan on the Home screen, and then tap.
  2. Make sure the Light tab is selected at the top of the screen.
  3. Tap Light Auto, and then tap Motion.
  4. If you want the light to turn on when motion is detected and off when no motion is detected, toggle Motion Sense to enable it.

DISABLING THE MOTION SENSOR

Note: To pause Motion, simply turn Fan Auto or Light Auto off from the Bluetooth remote or in the Big Ass Fans app. When you’re ready to re-enable Motion, just turn Auto back on.*

  1. In the Big Ass Fans app, tap a fan on the Home screen, and then tap.
  2. Make sure the Fan or Light tab (depending on which you want to disable) is selected at the top of the screen.
  3. Tap Fan Auto or Light Auto, and then tap Motion.
  4. Toggle Motion Sense to disable it. The fan or light will stop detecting your presence in the room and will no longer respond to motion.

* Turning Auto off will disable all Auto features.
