Bond Bridge lets you connect your existing remote controlled ceiling fans, fireplaces or blinds to your smart devices.

This Wifi based device can be placed anywhere there is WiFi coverage making it easy to control IR/RF devices that are in locations that are hard to run cable.

Integration into ELAN allows you to activate, control fan speeds, open/close shades, turn on lights and more all from a single point using ELAN's touchscreens, mobile applications, keypads, handheld remote controls and more.

Bond can be purchased directly from Bond Home, through Home Depot, Best Buy or via Amazon and is easily the cheapest and easiest way to integrate Somfy RTS Shades and other RF based products.

There are also certain fans with 'smart by bond' technology built in.  These fans can be controlled by the driver without any additional hardware.  If you encounter a fan that has no IR, no IR nor has 'smart by bond' built in you can retrofit 'smart by bond' by using the universal smart wi-fi 4 speed ceiling fan remote controller.

On top of 3rd party device control you can now also integrate the Bond Sidekick Keypad. This battery operated 8 button keypad is designed to be easily retrofit. Paired with a Bond Bridge Pro it allows integration to Control4 to provide tap, double tap, press and release functionality. Battery on the Sidekick product will last you for 10 years on moderate usage (2-3 times a day).

  • Integrate Nice Uni Directional battery operated shades with positional based control.
  • With Bond’s recent integration of Somfy RTS blinds this makes an easy and affordable retro solution to control somfy blinds so now you can automate somfy shades to open in the morning, close at night or to block out sun on hot days to reduce energy in your home.
  • Retrofit existing chain blinds to using the OZ Smart Things Zigbee Smart Blind Motor. Note that Bond will control the motor via RF not Zigbee by replicatin the remote control commands for up, down, stop and preset.
