I have a fan that was already installed when i bought the house its just a ceiling fan with a switch in the wall to turn it on and off. So i replaced the switch with a GE Smart Fan Switch It works with smartthings hub natively and has 3 speeds. I can control it with alexa and in automation's, etc. I bought a smartthings button to put on my bedside table as this is in the bedroom and because the button has a temp sensor in it i can set up automation's to turn on the fan automatically if I'm in the room and the temperature is above a set level. Can also control it with a button push as well.

@Beau you might want to try the SwitchBot hub. It is now integrated with SmartThings and is an RF blaster. Could be the solution you are looking for.

Is switchbot a RF blaster? I thought it was a IR blaster.

You could use a Broadlink RM Pro, link your IHC (Broadlink app) account to IFTTT & set up an automation with SmartThings that way. You can also then create a virtual device switch in your SmartThings app which gives you control of that trigger
