Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan
I assume that you're talking about a remote-controlled ceiling fan.
There are two parts to a remote-control setup -- the transmitter (the switch which you use to operate the fan and/or light), and the receiver (which receives the signals sent by the transmitter, and directly controls the fan and/or light).
The receiver -- which should look like a plastic rectangle, usually white, grey, or orange-brown in color -- can be identified by the fact that it has several colored wires coming out of it, and doesn't have any buttons. This is mounted in the ceiling fan itself. On nearly all setups, it goes inside the canopy (the decorative part of the ceiling fan, up by the ceiling, which hides the fan's electrical wires).
The transmitter may be either hand-held like a television remote control, or in-wall mounted like a light switch. If you have the hand-held variety, there is nothing to install in a wall box. The wall-box wires should be appropriately connected up, and a blank cover plate should be put on top of the gang box.
If, on the other hand, you have the in-wall variety of transmitter, then yes -- it gets mounted in the wall, in a gang box, like a normal light switch or outlet.
If you need any further clarification, please feel free to ask!
