Bond Smart Wi-Fi Hub For Ceiling Fans

Everything seems to be smart these days from speakers, switches, plugs and more.  So why not ceiling fans? A ceiling fan might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to the smart home, but there are perks to an automated fan. Adding voice controls, schedules and even IFTTT recipes to a ceiling fan creates a more convenient smart home and a more comfortable living environment.

The Bond($100) device is the flagship product for its parent company, Olibra. The Bond smartens ceiling fans by acquiring the signal from the device's original infrared (IR) or radio frequency (RF)

The Bond works with Amazon Alexa devices and Google so you can ask your voice assistant of choice to control your ceiling fan. The Bond app is available for iOS and Android devices, but the Bond itself doesn't work with HomeKit or Siri. In the future, they're looking to make it work for Windows AC's, Garage Doors and Motorized shades.
