The ceiling fan remote switch in a bedroom was controlling two incandescent can light fixtures. Is there a limit to how much power these electronic switches can tolerate? There was 80W bulbs in the two cans. These typically would control the lights on the fan itself.

I don’t know which one you have.
Thanks John. I hadn’t thought about looking up to see if I could find an owners manual for the remote. I did and found that it was a Casablanca Adapt Touch Remote Control model W-52. The owners manual here says controlling an incandescent lighting fixture is a no-no!
From the owners manual:
“… To avoid overheating and possible damage to other equipment, do not install control to a receptacle, fluorescent light fixture, motor operated appliance, or transformer supplied appliance. Use only to control one paddle-blade ceiling fan and attached incandescent light fixture.”
