Although the BOND is not a ceiling fan, it’s a great way to get your existing remote-controlled ceiling fan connected to your SMART home. We appreciate Ideaing recognizing BOND Home on their list of “The Best Smart Ceiling Fans – 2017” and helping us spread the word that this much needed solution exists in the market and will soon be available to all.
Here’s what they had to say about BOND:
“Remember when your sibling covered the IR sensor on your remote control so you couldn’t switch the channel? Well, this is exactly what the problem with remote controls. You have to put it within the line of sight for it to work. That’s not smart, is it?
So, for your remote-controlled ceiling fans, there’s finally a way to make it smart — through Bond remote control. Bond works with Wi-Fi and has the ability to rebroadcast both IR and RF signals from your remote control. In short, it enables you to control your fan, and the lighting that goes with it, with just your smartphone. You even can make it work with Alexa and other compatible smart home products like Nest, SmartThings, Honeywell, and more. With this, you can make your electric fan spin on its own every time the room temperature rises up to a certain point.
If you’re tired of using the remote control and you want to include your traditional ceiling fan in your automated home system, the Bond is the simplest and quickest way to do so. It only works with ceiling fans with remote control, but if you have a pull chain type, you need to purchase an additional receiver to make it work.”
