Default ceiling fan remote

How are remote receivers installed on ceiling fans? Is it directly wired at the joints in the ceiling box?

Receiver is usually in the bottom where the light kit is attached.

Been too long ago for me to remember but the directions were with the remote.
Good Luck

Next time I see a remote up there in the canopy, I'll sue. What sort of lame brain design is this to cram a cellphone sized contraption in the space where wires should not be pinched or stressed? I will advise my friends against using these things in the future.
