Hampton Bay Remote fixtures

This is going to sound stupid, but I have a bet with my husband.

I say that you can install a Hampton Bay ceiling fan with remote the exact same way you install a standard ceiling fan with pull chains. He says you have to bypass the wall switch and give it constant power.

Who is right?

You can do it either way if you have an auxillary portable  remote. If you bypassed the wall switch, you'd always have to use the remote to command the fan and light individually, but it would work fine. If you retain the wall switch, it can be used as a master on/off switch for the fan/light. When used this way, the fan receiver will typically "remember" the fan/light levels it was set at when it was last turned off. This adds a certain degree of convenience in rooms that are frequently occupied, as you aren't always having to use the remote itself.
