Mi Remote Android App and Aldi EasyHome Oscillating Fan Pairing 
We have a pedastal fan from Aldi which comes with remote control and I wanted to see if the MiRemote app that comes with MIUI Android phones like the Xiaomi range of phones worked with the fan.

The remote app doesn't list any brand names that looked familiar such as EasyHome or Aldi that could be found on the fan itself, so I thought I'd randomly try a Chinese brand fan and hope for the best.

The best is what I got by fluke. I chose Xiaoxiang brand fan from the brand's list in the app and the second (of 2) options pressing the power button worked for me.

I then tried all the buttons in the app and pretty much all of them worked. Power, fan speed, fan mode, oscillation all works.
