Home Depot markets their own line of ceiling fans under the Hampton Bay brand. Select Hampton Bay fan models include a remote control, which allows you to stay in one place and adjust the fan speed or dim the lights. The remote has four buttons, "Hi," "Med" and "Low" to select fan speed and "Off" to turn off the fan. The "Light" button allows you to turn on or off the light and adjust brightness.
