For those of you whom are in to smart homes, alexa, etc. Home Depot has the Bond Smart Wifi Ceiling Fan and other device hub on sale. Free shipping as well through 6/16/2018

I have not used this device, I just ordered it but it will control up to 6 RF or Infared Devices. So make your old fans smart. I have an insteon hub for my bedroom fans. It works ok. I am hoping this will work better. The Smart controlled fans are to expensive and I am looking to add two 64' ceilings with dimmable leds that are on sale for $139 at costco which have remotes. So I am looking to control them all with the bong. In Any event I have been shopping for a device and looking at the bond for a while. The support seems good and they continue to add more features. So I found it on sale at the depot. Maybe it has been cheaper elsewhere.

Thank you! Just finished installing four fans in our house and they all have remote modules and have been patiently waiting for this deal to come back around. Trigger pulled!

Got one at around $60 when it was just released around 6 months ago. It is working pretty well now in controlling all my 3 ceiling fans. It just does not have the feedback from the fan and does not have all the functions of the original remote controls. It is fine for turning on/off and some dimming functions.

Does anyone know if this would work with an awning? Somfy has a wifi controller that is close to $200. It would be great if I could control my fans inside plus the opening and closing of the awning outside with this one unit.

@ Billcsho, Thanks for the feedback. I have been watching this product for a few months now. The progression of the app is promising and shows that it can control low, med, high fan speeds and light dimming and is programmable by learning the remote. The most recent updates allow commands for alexa turn on bedroom light 50%.

I hear what you are saying about 2 way communication. I currently am using the insteon hub with the 2 fan controls. They work but they are a real hassle to program, then they need to be installed in the fan housing and for each fan the controller goes for $50-$80 per fan. My experience with the insteon was my first with alexa, and fortunately it ended just in time for the hubless levinton wall switches. So I have a hub and the two controllers and one light switch. Which of all my devices, the insteon drops out a few times a week. (Sorry Long Winded).

Have you been routinely updating your bond and bond app, and has your experience but good, bad,great? I spoke to their online chat and watched a newer video posted on youtube. They did say that they a working on increasing the device support to more than 6 devices.

If the remote or controller that you have is RF then it should be able to learn your remote, See below are some questions that I asked Mau. In particular the frequencies. One thing about home depot is that they have an easy return policy. Other devices for control is garage door, and ac units. Sonoff has wifi/433rf controllers that may work as well.

(01:09:30 AM) ed: I think I read somewhere that it will work in a home up to 2500SQft. Is this true
(01:11:25 AM) ed: also, what are the frequency ranges for RF?
(01:12:04 AM) Mau: Yes it is true... it work the same as routers, the BOND can cover approximately 2500 square feet assuming there is nothing that will interfere with the signal (metal walls in the house).
(01:12:20 AM) Mau: The BOND will work with RF remotes in 300-450Mhz range and IR devices that use 38kHz OOK modulation.

It works fine only after the recent firmware and app update. I am one of the early adopter before there was any review. For a long time it only can turn on/off one of my 3 ceiling fans. The good thing is they have been updating it over the last 6 months. It still does not have everything they promised yet. It is however the cheapest solution if you have more than one ceiling fan and have RF remote control installed already. Between my Echos and Google Homes, I have over a couple dozens of smart devices installed at home and have over 80% of switches/dimmers automated.

Thanks! I had forgotten about the Amex Offer and they will stack which brings it down to $43

I have the Hook Smart Home Hub. Is the functionality of the Bond different?

I have learned that I can simply say "Alexa bedroom 50", or "Alexa bedroom on", or off, or 100, etc. Note that "bedroom" would be replaced by the name of your device. No need to say turn on.

Update:
OK, I realized that this may only work for some based on the Alexa skill being used. This works for one version of my smart plugs (more expensive one - can't remember the name) vs the cheaper OMOTON version. With OMOTON I have to say turn on. And turn off. Not just on off etc.
