The Haiku (Ukiah spelled backwards) fan is made by Big Ass Fans.
The old fan blades turned but they did not move any papers, but the Haiku when running at max speed will disturb papers, so it's moving more air than the old 5-bladed ceiling fan.
That means when comparing power consumption of the old and new fans the new fan should be run at a slower speed to it's moving the same amount of air.
Last night when watching a movie I pressed "Return" on the Blu-Ray remote and the Haiku lights turned on. So at least that command is common. I haven't tried all the buttons on all my remotes to see which ones can be used to control the fan.
Pressing some other Blu-ray button causes the fan speed to increase or if it's off to start on low speed (which also turns on the blue light for some seconds). This is a distraction when watching a movie.
Also see IR codes below for interference with TV remote.
The ceiling fan in my TV home theater room has a bent blade. It may be possible to straighten it, but that also may break it. So I've been thinking about replacing it.
At a recent gathering of friends the Big Ass Fan company was mentioned and I checked out their offerings. The small fan intended for use in homes is called the Haiku which is nice since I live in Ukiah, California. It's truly a work of art as well as being more efficient than conventional AC powered ceiling fans.
