Customer Reviews

Good unit, read the manual, and make your electrician read the manual I still have mixed thoughts about the FV-NLVK1 module (Nightglow LED). Most night lights have a dim glow that faintly illuminates. This one is actually quite bright -- a little bit too bright for my taste. However, I installed it in a guest bathroom. Guests, who aren't as familiar with my home, could probably use a little extra illumination to navigate. Depending on the placement of the vent and the size of the bathroom, this might not be an issue.I would never, ever install this module in my master bathroom. Have a female companion? They tend to like candles, scents, and other BS. Think about it this way: you will NEVER be able to make your bathroom dark. Even with the ambient brightness set to "DARK", the night light will tend to be on with tea candles lit. Creating a "sexy" scene is no longer on the table. Throw out all technical specs -- make sure that this isn't important to you.I have also subtracted a star because the documentation is inadequate. If you read the ENTIRE manual (for all of the modules and other models of the fan), you will figure it out. However, this fan and modules (in addition to anything I buy from Germany) confuses my contractor/electrician. If you install this module, you need to be very clear that the device needs to have power provided 24/7 -- the unit's switching mechanism cannot be wired how they are accustomed to if you want the night light to work as designed. If you see black or white wired to the switch, they are not doing it correctly. The 2 red wires need to hooked up to either end of a single-pole switch. When you flip the switch on, the fan turns on. When you flip the switch off the fan turns off ** 20 minutes later **. Again, they will be confused as to why it doesn't turn off immediately.** What I outline above is specific to an installation that only includes the night light **I am adding a star because, despite multiple wiring errors and a lot of sparks in my electrician's face, they didn't destroy the unit itself. They tried to push power down the red wires (which they shouldn't have done). They also did some other crazy wirings which I can't even begin to describe. However, the unit still works despite tripping the breaker MANY times. /facepalmPanasonic: make a installation guide that is specific to each module with the recommended wiring (and implications of combining with other modules). As I have stated, you really need to read EVERYTHING, which is hard for contractors who are torn between so many different tasks and are used to disregarding manuals. I ended up having to read it and run the show. 4Update Very sensitive, if you pass by in another room it will turn the fan on, I can deal with that, but now after only a few months of service the fans are running 24 hours a day. I had to unplug the motion sensor and am using the wall switch. Great idea just don't want to replace every view months, thus the two stars.After unplugging the sensors the fans kept running nonstop. I have the FV-11-15-VK1 fans and couldn t find anything which indicted there was a built in sensor, but there must be, because the fans have started cycling on and off on their own. I noticed on one fan at 67 degrees and 34% humidity it will cycle off. I am monitoring the others to see if they do the same. So the motion sensors were not the issue and work as advertised. I like the fans as well but will leave the two star rating until I can find better accessibility to information from the manufacturer. 2Doesn't work as it should, No documentation Decided to give the condensation module a try even though it has lots of bad reviews. I found it did NOT work as it should. The fan would cycle on for no reason even when the module was set to 80% (which you have to find this setting on your own since there isn't any documentation) and the humidity in the room was only 45%. You end up expelling heated/cooled air for no reason. 1Humidity Sensor - Very expensive for something that essentially does not work I have a $19 digital weather station that measures humidity much more reliably than this $45 piece of junk--and the weather station measures indoor & outdoor temp, humidity, air pressure, plus tracks 24 hr highs and lows. All this switch needs to do is connect the circuit to turn the fan on at the humidity level you dial in, and then turn it off when the humidity falls below that level. And it completely fails at that task.The dial range runs from 30% to 80%, but not only is this a poor choice of humidity range, the sensor is incredibly inaccurate. The fan is always on if you set it even slightly below 80% (even though the reported humidity is under 30%--desert conditions). And most homes average around 50% humidity, so what good is any setting below 60%? It would be better if the range were 60% to 95% humidity--and even great if the sensor were able to measure within 10% of the actual humidity value!What does it do? Well, if you set it at the maximum humidity level (80%), the fan usually stays off if the humidity is below 50%. However, even at a 40% actual humidity level, if you walk into the room and simply sit and breath for about 30 seconds (the fan is in a small 7x7x8 bathroom), the fan turns on. If you then leave the room, the fan stays on for the next several hours until it randomly shuts off (even with the fan delay setting at 0). The fan will then turn on randomly with no one in the room and off again anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours later--and all this while the actual humidity level in that bathroom is under 50%.The only part of this sensor that does work is if it just happens to be off and you take a shower, the fan does turn on within a minute of starting the shower--at less than the 80% humidity that it is dialed to. Unfortunately, it won't shut off again for several hours after the humidity in the room drops below 50%. I have checked the sensor device, and there are no moisture drops in the sensor in that prevent it from shutting off, it just appears to be a poor sensor chip for this particular purpose.So, we haven't returned it for exactly one reason: it turns the fan on when you're in the shower and forgot to turn it on yourself before getting in (a common occurrence in our household). At least it is preventing the walls from dripping with moisture. I have to go around and turn the fans off manually after they've been running, but at least I can hear the fan and do something about it rather than the other option of having water running down the walls from condensation.The Panasonic fan that this sensor goes in is a very nice unit, and the idea of having a humidity sensor is a great idea. Unfortunately, this sensor is an expensive piece of junk. I would welcome Panasonic redesigning the sensor and sending me two free replacements. We have 4 of the fan units, two with the humidity sensors and both humidity sensors work exactly the same: very poorly. 1Great fan, sketchy instructions and descriptions of accessories. From the description. "NiteGlow LED Night Light contains a specialized photocell feature automatically turns on the LED night light when darkness is sensed in the room. Hi/Low brightness switch enables you to select the intensity of light output"Great fan, but...On the nightlight, the switch has nothing to do with the light intensity, it's just bright.Too bright. Not worth sending it back, but I may disconnect.Instructions for this, and the fan are terrible. Throw the bracket away, and build your own, it was way too flimsy. 3Adjusting the FV-CSVK1 Condensation Sensor turns out to be easy Like a lot of folks I had an issue with the fan running pretty much all the time with this sensor installed, and I could not seem to find any information on how to deal with it. In fact I found a lot of misinformation, some of it here, indicating that it could not be adjusted. I finally pulled the sensor out of the fan housing (which, by the way, is great) and started to take it apart to see what's what. There's just one screw, and hey! that exposes a little RH (relative humidity) adjustment that goes from 30% to 80%, and was factory set at something like 55%, which is about baseline in my house. I cranked it to 80% and plugged it back in to the fan. Now the fan only starts itself during a shower as expected, so all is well.Only four stars because it's so poorly documented and I wasted a lot of time figuring it out. 4Poor engineering from panasonic While this sensor is sure to turn on your fan when you shower, it also turns it on for many many more times of the day. And because of the 20 minute delay, even if the sensor hiccups a little, it turns the fan on for 20 minutes. I d say the fan runs for well over 50% of the time at the highest setting of 80% RH when according to my thermostat the house is at 45%RH.It s a nice idea to protect your house during a shower for those that don t remember to turn off the fan, but don t view this as a cost saver because with the fan running 50% of the time, on an 8W fan, this little device is going to cost you an extra $50 per year in electricity. 2Works, but check wiring options first. This module just plugs in and works - depending on how you wire your fan/light, I have the fan with light (Panasonic FV-11-15VKL1). To use just the NiteGlow module on this model, you will need to control the fan with the two red switch wires in the fan housing, keeping the wall switch to "On". This will allow constant power to the nite lite and it will control the fan (run for 20 min). So one would have to have run additional wire from the wall switch to the fan box to the two red control wires (which are not to receive any power by the way). Sounds a bit deep I realize, but if you just plug in the nite lite with the two red control wires capped off, it will not allow the fan to run. And the nite lite will also not work. This stumped my electricians who thought the fan was broken.The take away should be to study the wiring diagram as it pertains to any modules you plan to install, AND check out the Panasonic how to videos [...]Currently, I have a separate wall switch for the main light and fan. I was able to test the nite glow module by temporarily shorting the two red control wires. The light brightness look just right and would be fine for most people in my opinion. But unfortunately, I will not be using this module since I had not wired my wall switch for this mod before my sheetrock went in. I gave this produce 4 stars due to module design (should provide power to a nite light module without special wiring), and for lack of explanation in the instructions of this module. Basically the instructions that come with this module say to just plug it in and does not stress the control wiring needed on some models. The light itself is great. 4Requires Panasonic FV-VS15VK1 Whisper Select-Plug and Play Multi-Speed Module As other reviews point out, there is a problem with the fan not shutting off, regardless of how high a percent relative humidity you set this module to. Panasonic customer technical support was not helpful, and was actually misleading on this. They suggested first that the problem was infiltration of damp outside air through the exhaust vent. This is irrational, since when the fan is running, there is positive air pressure in the vent pipe (air flowing out). So the sensor cannot be reading outside air. They then suggested that the problem is back-pressure in the exhaust vent pipe, and that I should uninstall the fan and to a back-pressure check. This made no sense, since I have over-sized (6 inch diameter) duct.I finally figured out the problem, on my own. It is with the timer, not the humidity sensor!Apparently, the cut-off timer that is built into the basic fan unit does not work with the humidity sensor, since the problem went away whenI added on the Panasonic FV-VS15VK1 Whisper Select-Plug and Play Multi-Speed Module (which contains its own cut-off timer).I now have a working fan, that turns on when the humidity reaches the set-point, and shuts itself off 15 minutes after the humidity falls below that. 3Things to consider when buying modules I bought the motion sensor & nite light options for my 6 WhisperCeiling fans for my house after getting tired of hearing a jet engine in my bathrooms for years( the replaced model was a Nutone..a cheap builder install) some noteworthy observations.1 : Motion sensor module: FV-MSVK1As mentioned previously depending on which model exhaust you buy there may be two timers if you add the motion detector module.(built into the exhaust itself PLUS the Motion Sensor Module you added on). The motion detector timer ( has a fixed cut off time of 20 minutes. But, if you add the Multi-Speed w/Time Delay Module (FV-VS15VK1) there is a separate timer you can set the fan to stop after 0 to 60 minutes, and it overrides the motion detector setting.2: NightGlow LED Light Module: FV-NLVK1The dial only adjust the ambient light sensitivity to tell it when to turn on. It DOESNOT adjust the brightness or output of the light itself3: Condensation Sensor : FV-CSVK1When the condensation sensor is used in conjunction with Multi-Speed w/Time Delay Module (FV-VS15VK1) the fan kicks up to high speed when the sensor detects moisture depending on your CFM setting.If no other modules are install then fan will run when moisture is dectected & shut of automatically after 20 min later4: Multi-Speed w/Time Delay Module (FV-VS15VK1)You can set the CFM to 0 (zero) & then the fan ONLY comes on if motion is detectedOR set it at a continuous speed to NEVER turn offFan runs continuously at pre-set level, elevates to maximum level when a wall switch turns on OR detects motion OR condensation 5
