While the motor rating for Zooz is technically accurate, most ceiling fans and motors go over the load maximums. The issue is with high inrush current so the amount of power a motor draws at start-up. In our experience, this type of load will damage the switches immediately or over time. Zooz switches should really only be used with lighting within the recommended loads.
