@Sonkoly I have not, but the idea crossed my mind. Did you give it a shot? What were your results?

@Sonkoly You should absolutely NOT. The power dissipation required by a fan motor comtrol is MUCH greater than a lamp array and the type of load is quite different as an inductive motor load vs a lamp load.

I've been hoping for a Kasa fan switch for over a year now. I recently bought a Treatlife Ceiling Fan Switch which does exactly what I want, for a room where we change the fan speed fairly regularly. I'm still hoping for a Kasa fan switch before purchasing more for other rooms. But, the Treatlife switch might fill the gap for you, too.

@kinetifex I have the same - I much prefer the Kasa Switches over TreatLife where the product application matches, but as you say Kasa does not have suitable product available. The Treatlife works well enough, I just wish I could stick with the same product for all applications. 3-Way dimmer is another but I'm holding off on that one, the release of which HAS been announced by Kasa/TPLInk
