Works for devices where you have an existing remote that isn’t tied into your ecosystem (e.g., remote control that only controls ceiling fan). BOND turns remote controlled fan, fireplace or Somfy shades (does not support garage doors) smart in seconds. Activate the fan, control fan speeds, and switch on lights.
A single module can control up to 30 devices and work across 2,500 square feet.
However, the fan is not relaying it’s state and timing of controls can be tricky. You lose the ability to use the remote otherwise the software “believes” the light is in the last state it sent the signal for. Works better if your remote has an Off and On button for discrete state of lights and Fan Speed 1, 2, 3 etc. instead of Up and Down as you can always just hit On or 1 and know it will likely go to that setting.
