Question: does it come with a remote?
Answer: Yes, controls speed, oscillation and you can set a timer with remote.

Answer: Depends on the size of the room. I use this fan as a desk/night (sleeping) fan and it covers a good area within 5 or 6 feet or more if you put the fan at a higher setting but the sound is much larger than a ceiling fan at the highest setting. For larger rooms use a ceiling fan.
