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

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.
