With the QuietCool Wi-Fi Smart Control, simply open the QuietCool app on your phone or tablet, open up a window, and turn on your QuietCool fan!

You can control the speeds of your fan as well as the countdown timer, from 30 minutes to 8 hours!

Purchase one Wi-Fi Smart Control hub per motorhead in your QuietCool system. The QuietCool network inside of your home can control up to 15 fans! The QuietCool Wi-Fi Smart Control is backwards compatible with all QuietCool whole house fans.

Installation of Wi-Fi Smart Control

The QuietCool Wi-Fi Smart Control hub is very easy to install on any QuietCool fan.

Simply install the hub over the existing handy-box or directly on the motorhead and match the speed wires and the power wires.

With the convenient “Fan” button on the hub, you can even test the fan to make sure it is wired correctly before installing!

To connect your fan to your phone all you’ll need is the Wi-Fi Smart Control Hub (IT-36001) and a smart device with the QuietCool App.

The QuietCool Wi-Fi Smart Control is backwards compatible with all QuietCool whole house fans and attic fans.

No, the Wi-Fi Smart Control is not compatible with 5 ghz networks, however, most 5 ghz networks have a 2.4 ghz network as well.

No, we do not recommend this.

As of right now the QuietCool Wi-Fi Smart Control isn't compatible with home automation. We don’t recommend connecting a QuietCool to a home automation system in any form as there is the need for a person to open up a window for the fan to work.

We do not support Wi-Fi Range Extenders. All hubs need to be connected to the main router’s 2.4 ghz network.

Yes you can, however it is not recommended because you will only have two speeds vs. four speeds. You also run a greater risk of burning out the hub if the wiring is done incorrectly.

Some routers older than 5 years do not communicate with our Wi-Fi hubs. Please check the minimum requirements to make sure your network is compatible.

The hub is warrantied for 1 year.

How-to Update App

How-to Update Firmware

System Requirements

Basic Requirements:

  • - Wi-Fi Router with 2.4 Ghz Wi-Fi network
  • - WPA, WPA2, or WEP security
  • - iOS 8.0 or greater
  • - Android 4.0.3 or greater

Compatibility

  • - Compatible with most Wi-Fi routers that have a 2.4 Ghz network
  • - Not compatible with Wi-Fi Range Extenders, 5 Ghz networks, or dual/tri-band routers that combine the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz networks together (see Wireless Tips for more info)
  • Not compatible with the following network types:
    • -- Enterprise routers with enterprise security settings
    • -- Cafe style networks (Wi-Fi networks with browser-based guest sign in)
    • -- Cellular hotspot networks
    • -- Networks with Chinese characters in the SSID (network name)
  • - If you have multiple Wi-Fi networks at home, make sure you connect your Wi-Fi hubs to the network you most use on your devices. Both your devices and your Wi-Fi hub must be on the same network in order for you to be able to control the fan.

Wireless Tips

  • - Make sure the router is located centrally in the home so all your devices can reach the Wi-Fi signal as well as the Wi-Fi hubs on the fans. Interference can be caused by walls, floors, furniture, etc. so be sure to test connectivity before installation.
  • - Ensure your router firmware is up-to-date.
  • - Make sure your router is configured to use either WEP, WPA, WPA2, or WPA+WPA2 security options
  • Dual/Tri-band Routers:
    • - Many Dual or Tri-band routers have a setting that will combine both the 2.4 Ghz and the two 5 Ghz networks into one network. This is incompatible with the Wi-Fi hub as the hub can not dictate which network it lands on.
    • - To get around this issue, turn-off this feature in the router’s Wi-Fi settings.
  • Wi-Fi Range Extenders/Boosters
    • - The Wi-Fi Hub needs to be connected directly to the main Wi-Fi router rather than a range extender/booster. The hub will not work consistently if it is connected through a range extender/booster.
  • - Make sure the channel selection on the router is set to “Automatic” to ensure there is no Wi-Fi interference
