Review for makes your old ceiling fan smart

Price was $99.00. So far, i'm ok with this device. I'll be a lot happier when ir support is available so that i can control my ir lutron fan control and light dimmer. I'm controlling a casablanca and a hunter fan right now and both of them have rf transmitters/receivers. My bond is located in my basement and is able to control my casablanca fan on the next floor with no issues. One issue i'm having right now is that bond will only allow me to have 3 fan speeds for the casablanca fan when it should actually have 4 speeds. I'm pretty tech savvy, but i couldn't get the 4th speed to work at all. The light dimmer function works, but you have to hit the dimmer button once and then wait for the light to get close to the brightness you want. You then have to hit the light button to set the brightness in. Otherwise, the light will just keep going through a cycle where it constantly dims and brightens. I love the bond concept, but it isn't really smart concept when you think about it because bond never knows the on/off state of a fan/light. I'll give an example of what can happen. In google home, i named the light on one of my ceiling fans "basement ceiling fan light". Now, let's say that the light is off. If i issue the command, "ok google, turn off the lights in the basement", it will actually turn that particular ceiling fan light on. I'm still pretty content with the device though, but i'll be a lot happier when ir support is available sometime this year. That brings up another point. I bought this device mainly because of the following statement on the bondio website, "works with any remote-controlled ceiling fan, regardless of remote type (rf or ir)". They forgot to mention that ir support isn't actually available yet. Support did send me this message though, "for ir remotes, functionality will be available in the beginning of 2018. Sorry about that. "

Prologue :

This product is awesome. I have it working with four rf ceiling fans (two different makes) with all features (three fan speeds plus light toggle) from my smartphone, and connected with google assistant to turn the lights on/off and fans on/off ind. I haven't figured out if it can set the fan speeds through google assistant yet, but on/off works great. Hardware design is great. . The setup is a bit tricky. The bond boots up out of the box to look like an access point. You have to join the bond wi-fi network (which temporarily takes your phone off the internet while you are in setup mode), then you can talk to the bond and tell it to join your home's wi-fi network. Then you go in and teach it your remote functions for each device. Once you have your devices set up you can name them, assign them to rooms, etc. And sync your account with google home (or online store alexa) to voice control your devices. . I'm giving this a five star for people who are somewhat technical as it delivers for ceiling fans as advertised. If you aren't willing to tinker around a bit, you should probably wait until they improve the ease of use of the software:. 1. Biggest would be making it so you don't have to join it as an ap taking your phone off the internet temporarily during setup. 2. They should also consider making it so you can remotely see the setup states from the app instead of having to look directly at the hardware during setup (blue flashing while in rf learning mode, and turns green when it learns the rf signal). . Looking forward to see if they can deliver on new features (garage doors remotes, smartthings, more ifttt functions, etc. ).

So far, so great. I have been excited to integrate my minka aire ceiling fan into my current home automation with the online store echo and smartthings. . Finally, no more remotes for me. Just simply, "alexa, turn on the fan". Setup was simple, the instructions are great. It was easy to setup following the included setup guide. . I can't wait to start integrating custom ir and rf devices. I am hoping to control my roku tv and garage door with the bond! -N. Mays

PROS
  • Works great, seller did price match so i didn't have to return.
  • Bought this device for my dad for christmas. He opened it up last night and had it going in no time. Setting up the bond with our kitchen ceiling fan was simple and quick. Really convenient having all the controls in one place. We are looking forward to seeing the new updates and what other household appliances we can connect to our bond! would highly recommend this product to anyone who has a lot of remote controlled appliances or devices in their home!
CONS
  • When i was setting up the bond, it required an update to the software. When i started to update it, it all of a sudden stopped working and now it is not functioning at all. I'll be returning this one and trying a new one.
  • It almost worked, but ultimately was incompatible with my hampton bay wireless controllers. You have to hold down the button for several seconds for this device to copy the signal, but my light button is also a dimmer button, so it would only work every second or third try. Even the lights took a few tries. Decided to get a z-wave controller to make my ceiling fan/light a smart device instead.
  • Sounds like a awesome idea with the possibility of expanding to controlling garage door openers but when i set it up to control my ceiling fan it didn't work half the time and to top it off it doesn't indicate on the app what the actual status is of the ceiling fan such as light on or off etc. We have hampton bay lcd remote controls for all our ceiling fans.

makes your old ceiling fan smart BOND - Makes Your Old Ceiling Fan SMART (Wi-Fi) Instantly. Works With Echo and Google Home Compatible (Switch to Mobile/Desktop Version)

Purchased this product recently without any regrets. Been gradually transitioning my home into a smart home with the introduction of online store products. This device allowed me to turn my conventional remote controlled ceiling fan which i ve had for many years into a smart fan & works perfectly with voice activation via alexa. Saved me lots of money from purchasing a smart fan which usually costs almost an arm & leg. Set up was simple and a breeze, haven t encountered any problems yet. Works as advertised. Looking forward to all the other upcoming updates, specifically the garage door control since i have the conventional type and don t intend to replace it with a smart garage type when this little gadget can do the job! this will complete my entire smart home conversion. Thank you bond!

(0) Question: Hi seller, my fireplace fcc id is di2ts-tx and my skylight remote fcc id is xsg833429 please let me know if that works?


(1) Question: Can i add a remote to my ceiling fan (originally purchased without remote control; manual pull switch only) and connect the remote to the bond?


(2) Question: Can you ask alexa to dim a ceiling fan light? i have not discovered the command and alexa, set the ceiling fan light to 25 percent doesn t work.

Samsung SmartThings Smart Home Hub

Easy to setup, high compatibility with a large number of 3rd party products. Using extensively with cree connected bulbs. The secret to getting these to pair is get yourself a desk lamp and put it about a foot away from the hub. Every bulb pairs quickly and flawlessly this way. Then move the bulb to its final location.

Smartthings lets you easily control, monitor, and secure your home from anywhere in the world. The heart of your smart home, the samsung smartthings hub will connect all of your different smart locks, lights, outlets, thermostats, and more and let you control them from the free smartthings app. Receive notifications about what's happening in and around your home and use your smartphone to remotely control your home's security, energy usage, lighting, and more. Since smartthings is compatible with a wide variety of smart devices from different companies, once you have the smartthings hub and the free app for ios, android, or windows, you can add as many additional smartthings sensors or other popular z-wave, zigbee, or internet-connected products as you want to enhance your connected home. The samsung smartthings hub works in the us and canada. If the honeywell programmable thermostat was not detected, you may need to reset the device through a z-wave exclusion before it can successfully connect with the smartthings hub. To do so in the smartthings mobile app: 1. Tap the menu 2. Tap the hub 3. Tap z-wave utilities 4. Tap general device exclusion 5. When prompted: 1. Press the system button on the left side of the thermostat's display 2. Press and hold the blank center button until the display changes 3. The first set of numbers/arrows is the "function" section - scroll until you find "rf10" 4. The second set of numbers/arrows is the "setting" section - select 0 5. Press done in the lower left corner to save and exit after the app indicates that the device was successfully removed from smartthings, follow the first set of instructions above to connect the honeywell programmable thermostat. Note: please reference user guide and specification sheet below under 'technical specifications' for instructions on how to add devices and troubleshoot connectivity issues

Samsung Smartthings Smart Home Hub (f hub us 2) FAQ.

Best thanksgiving investment by far. Using it for controlling lights and security so far. Works well with ifttt and has plenty of out of the box automation features that you can use. Example: change home status to "away and armed" when everyone leaves. Disarm when someone comes back (it uses your phone as your presence sensor). Slowely turn on a light over 30 minutes in the morning. . My only complaint is that it does not send voice output to google home speaker. It only works with bose and samsung speaker. -Notice from X. Carolyn, Redbridge

Haven't had longer than a couple of days with it but has performed without a hitch with 3rd party zwave devices. I'm on the fence about giving a full 5 stars since i'm an unintentional samsung loyalist or addict as it would seem :p but i don't understand why there's apple watch support and no gear s2/s3 support? also keep reading terrible things about official samsung accessories (sensors and whatnot) for this thing. Samsung is an enigma to me, i wish i knew why they're so all over the place and inconsistent.

Samsung-smartthings-smart-home-hub-(f-hub-us-2) set picture

- . WilsonStarted with hub v1 and now on v2. Everything is working great. I wish they has a better system for upgrading to the new hub besides doing everything all over again but i got it done and all is working. I do notice a faster response time to triggers and i like the idea of having more processes being controlled locally instead of in the cloud. The battery back up is cool just not really part of my system now. If the lights go out i wont need smartthings to turn them on for me (no power). Besides that with the back friday discount i could not find a reason not to upgrade.

Samsung smartthings wins the smart home battle! there are so many different items by various manufacturers that work with smartthings. You still need to be careful because some items will only work with wink or another hub. But so far, i am very impressed with this hub. I use it for my clients for smart home monitoring. The app for smart phones also works well (i do wish they had one for ipad). And the website and support are so helpful. It is open source so there is a large community of developers and others with creative solutions. If you are new to smart home automation - start here with smartthings. Buy your hub first! then buy different components that are compatible.

Echo Connect requires Echo device, home phone service, verified mobile number

I was waiting for this product to be released as i felt this technology will place the others in the artificial intelligence (google home etc) business behind many months if not years. Yes, thats right. This is a very ingenious system that users the home phone service using home wifi to communicates the phone signal through compatible echo devices. The call quality is quite good and the convenience the device offer to make echo a handsfree phone service makes echo a must have service now in every home. I have provided one star less as i feel the people who did there launch testing of the unit could have done better. The connect manual says that alexa app will capture the contacts from the registered users contact list. False - this does not happen. When i complained to help desk, they wanted to call me to run through their diagnostics. Sorry, i don't have time to waste so i use the phone service to dial a call or answer a incoming call! . Secondly, the alexa app should have been improved to welcome the connect on board. The app currently does not have a way of showing the phone contacts via the alexa app. It looks silly that after achieving a super system, the finer nuts and bolts have been overlooked! . If not for the above shortcoming, which i am sure the alexa tech team will sort out very soon, in general the echo connect is a super product and without doubt an essential for every household. Well done echo team!

With echo connect and a compatible echo device, you can ask alexa to call anyone using your home phone service all you have to do is ask. Because echo connect uses your home phone number, either landline or voip, friends and family recognize the call. Answer your home phone on your echo from across the room, so you can easily talk to anyone hands-free when you're busy making dinner or away from the phone. With the alexa app, the contacts on your mobile phone stay in sync with alexa, so you never have to look up a number stored on your phone. When you receive a call from someone in your contact list, alexa will announce who is calling. Simple to set up & use getting started is easy just plug in echo connect and launch your alexa app from a compatible mobile phone (ios or android). 1. Plug in echo connect 2. Sync your contacts in the alexa app 3. Just ask alexa to call any of your contacts

Echo Connect Requires Service Verified (53 007156) FAQ.

I think i have worked out the bugs with help from If you have mobility issues, then you must have this! you can take your landline calls thru your alexa empowered units. -Notice from W. Angela, Kirklees

Worked perfectly right out of the box.

Echo-connect-requires-service-verified-(53-007156) set picture

- O. SusanaEasy setup. Great price works flawlessly with echo show and dots

This is a great product, but it is a pain in the ass to hook up. Getting the echo connect to register on my cell phone's alexa app took 2 frustrating days! i had to go on youtube to find a video to see what was going wrong. I have 3 other echos so i pretty much knew what to do. For some reason, it did not want to connect to the online store wifi link. By a fluke, it finally did. . As for it working, it's doing a great job. I have the echo show and like seeing my calls show up on my screen. You have the option to see the person if they have another echo show. One downside, i can not access voicemails and i have to go to my main phone to get them. Another downside i'm not able to *2 my call blocker device. So, if i even think it may be a telemarketer, i need to use my phone's hand unit. Echo in the future should have a call blocker, a disconnect, and spam/telemarketer filter. Let you be able to add phone numbers you do not want calls from. Would be nice if online store had a worldwide spammer reporter directory that all echo users can report these numbers like some of the google apps on my cell phone. If the number was reported by an echo connect user somewhere in the world, a warning could be posted as a telemarketer on the echo show or state it on the other echo devices when the phone is ringing. At least give us a warning! i've thinking outside the box here. . Not to be too nitpicky - the other person on the line can hear you say alexa hang up if you don't have the timing right. God forbid they find out and say alexa over the phone and make my units go off! also, that annoying person who won't let you hang up! saying "hang up" should be enough. I don't want spammers toying with my echos! . . Echo connect should be able to set up using your computer/kindle/ipad. I can see older people/shut-ins that do not have cell phones having a problem not being able to use this. This should be easy for online store to do. Once they have access, they don't need to pay that company that advertises "help! i've fallen and i can't get up". If the echo is in hearing distance, they can call for help. They won't need to wear that stupid button around their neck. Online store should think about this. Make this happen. . As for the bad reviews, i can expect online store will work on the bugs in the next few months. If you already bought one and are not happy, i would keep it and try again in the next few months. It can only get better as they program more features. As for the device right now, i'm happy with it and can't wait to see new skills and features!

Echo Dot 2nd Generation - Black

The echo dot has revolutionized my life. I had been interested in it for a while, but hadn't had the mind to pull the trigger on the purchase. My wife gave it to me for christmas and i love it. I didn't realize how versatile and great it would be. I started out using it for music and to ask it questions, so i wouldn't have to look up the answers, but now i have it even controlling devices and lights in my house. My girls love it and talk to alexa all day and get her to play music for them when they want. I hadn't realized how amazing it would be as an educational device. Online store definitely has a winner here!

Echo Dot 2nd Generation - BlackAll-New-Amazon-Echo-Dot-Add-Alexa-To-Any-Room

Echo Dot 2nd Generation - Black (53 005166) FAQ.

We bought an echo dot as an early christmas gift to ourselves and we're so glad that we did. It's a very useful gadget because there's such a wide variety of things we can ask alexa to answer or tasks that she can do for us (eg: alarms/timers, calendar, ordering, weather). . Since one of the tasks that we wanted alexa to do for us was play music, we subscribed to online store's unlimited music plan for the echo dot. It's well worth the low monthly fee to be able to ask alexa to play any song or album anytime, without having to buy all of them individually. . Millions of songs are available through one groovy gadget (and the unlimited music plan). . We have the echo dot in our home and listen to music without any external speakers. As far as we're concerned, the internal speaker emits a decent array of sound. Is it as robust sounding as hooking it up to our surround system amplifier or other external speakers? of course not, but it does sound a lot better than most internal device speakers of similar size. For those of you that don't like the internal speaker, you can utilize the 3. 5mm or bluetooth speaker options. . If we say, alexa, play the top songs by phil collins . Then that's exactly what she does. . Keep in mind that when you ask alexa for the "top songs" by a soloist or group, they may not always be your favorite songs. A work around for that is to ask alexa to play a particular album that contains the songs you prefer to hear. . The screen-shots show you how we asked alexa to play an album vs the top songs. In addition, they show you what we see when logged-in to the alexa app via the chrome web browser. . Fyi: when asking alexa to play an album that has a long title, we realized that she responds accurately when we ask for part of that title (view elton john & michael jackson screen-shots). Be sure to look at what we said to alexa vs what the whole album title is labeled. . I should mention that we did ask alexa to search for a product, which she did along with telling us the best options and their cost. Afterward, she asked if we wanted to buy the product. We said yes and she placed the order for us once we gave her our confirmation code (settings: voice purchasing). We recommend setting that up so other people cannot place orders without your consent. It's convenient for us to have voice purchasing enabled when we're "unplugged" at night (except for alexa). . The skill that we use the most is weather sky, it gives us a detailed weather report that we use several times each day. . At the time of this review, we haven't used any of the smart home features, but we didn't buy it for that purpose. . Please note: we purchased the echo dot at its listed price, we did not receive any discount to post this review. -Notice from . Juliana, Isle of Wight

Click to Show echo dot 2nd generation - black (53 005166) Details

 so we ve had the original echo for a while now and really like it so when i saw online store had a sale on the echo dot i decided to pick one up. This little dot has all the same functionality as the original echo but also allows you the flexibility to connect it to any speaker you want. I like that because i connected it to my super high quality logitech surround sound system and now it sound 10x better then my original echo for less than half the price. It s able to hear me from a good distance away and almost always understands what i say perfectly. . Here s a little bonus feature. It acts as a bluetooth receiver. I previously had a tp-link bluetooth receiver connected to my logitech speakers so that i could connect my phone wirelessly to play music. Now i don t need that because i can tell alexa connect to my iphone and it connects instantly and allows my to stream my music right to it. And for $10 more than the standard bluetooth receiver i get a world of more functionality. . I would highly recommmend the echo dot to anyone considering an echo. Being able to connect it to any speaker is a great feature, alexa gets smarter every day, and the echo dot even has a decent sounding little speaker in it if you ever need to take it with you somewhere.

Echo-dot-2nd-generation---black-(53-005166) set picture

- N. AprilThere's already a ton reviews for the online store echo, but i just wanted say how happy we are with this product. . I initially thought that i should get the regular larger speaker online store echo for our living room/kitchen for the first floor of our 2- level condo and because it's a larger room than our bedrooms upstairs; however, when the echo dot went on sale for $40, i thought it was a really good value over the more expensive big brother and too good to pass up. What i found was that the echo dot was perfectly sufficient for the first floor. It's hard to know if the sound will be loud enough or if alexa could hear from all parts of the room just by seeing it at the retail store, but alexa (echo dot) had no problems hearing and responding to our commands. We typically set the volume setting to volume level 7 and music is loud enough for us to hear everywhere. It helps to have it centrally located in the room, and i am no farther than 20 feet away from the device speaking at relatively normal voice volume. . My wife, an initial skeptic, is really surprised by how smart the echo dot is, and my kid loves it as well. The only thing that is con for me is that the online store echo "skills" that can be learned still feels like in the infant stages and many of the "skills" not as polished. Certainly there are several companies that have helped designed some really good skills like capital one, fitbit, and domino's, but there's still not a lot to choose from. I hope that more and more companies will jump on this quickly. . Considering everything, for $40/$50 bucks this is a great value and easy way to get yourself introduced to home automation and voice recognition technology, and overall, i would highly recommend this product. . The product comes in a small package, and everything that comes in the box can be seen in pictures attached.

I have the echo in the living room to serve the house. Dot is in the master bedroom to serve only me. I can check on thing as i lay pondering in bed. "echo, what's on my agenda tomorrow? "; "echo, set an alarm for 6:15am"; echo, add dog food to my shopping list. ". . I love having dot nearby while i am able to be away from the rest of the family playing with alexa. "(snidely) alexa, tell me a joke". . I can have dot throw on some smooth jazz while i read my kindle. I am very pleased. The price is awesome for what you get!

F.A.Q. for bond - makes your old ceiling fan smart wi-fi instantly. works with echo and google home compatible

I bought one of these as soon as they went on sale. I had been waiting on it's release ever since i learned about it. Once it arrived i followed the included instructions and setup was easy. I had some questions about certain functions so i emailed them one night at 9 pm my time not expecting a response until at least the next day. Much to my surprise i got a reply within 30 minutes. We were able to workout the answer to my questions via email very quickly. That's great service after the sale as far as i'm concerned. The bond has worked flawlessly with alexa. Can't express how happy i am with this device and finally being able to control the last piece i wanted from my home automation.

A number of questions have been asked here.

This device works way better than i ever hoped. It controls all 5 of my ceiling fans and fireplace without any issues. Setup was fairly easy and alexa integration works very well. I am excited for future updates. The only downside i found, for the moment, is you are limited to 6 devices until future software updates.

Best bond ceiling instantly compatible (bd 1000) in review

Easy to set up, works with a large number of products. It's not great for much more than the basics when using with alexa, at least for my devices. Light on/off, fan on/off works great. . Selecting fan speeds, timed on, or dimming lights is quirky if it works at all. . Although i would like for smart devices to receive status updates, i think this is a shortcoming of the fan itself. For instance, if someone manually turns the light on, and then you go to the smart devices, it thinks it's is off. As others have noted, it is more of a "send a power signal" function than it is an "on" or "off" function. . Best of what i have tried so far. Bond is to my rf devices as harmony is to my entertainment center.

G. Valdez, Cornwall says

I have purchased two units one for my bedroom and one for the living room / dining bar area. Easy to setup and now i am using my echo dot to turn on/off the fan and lights in these rooms. I found by buying a newer controller i would be able to control the older fans that i had trouble programming initially. Now the all work correctly.

M. Brenda, East Riding of Yorkshire

I just got my bond and i have mixed feelings about it. Google home/assistant is not supported as of yet(11/30/2017). Tech support stated it will be supported by next week. Only thing it currently supports is ceiling fan remotes with alexa, the other remotes/devices are not supported as of yet. It seems that they rushed out the product for the holidays with very limited support for devices. Customized remotes(tv, dvds, stereos) will be supported by the end of the year. Other products will be supported hopefully by next year. It seems the software is not ready but they got the hardware out before the holidays. It is not worth it to buy it now and wait for the software updates. Currently you can program up to 6 devices but tech support mentioned they will upgrade the number of device support to more than 6 devices down the road. If you have 2500 square foot house or less than you only need 1 bond otherwise you will need multiple bond devices for each 2500 square foot coverage. It is excellent concept, but i would wait to buy the product.

I. Cunningham, Brighton and Hove says

We have three 10 year old hunter fans with their remote solution installed, which ends up being three remotes with a light, fan off, low fan speed, medium fan speed, and high fan speed buttons. . Didn't expect a cheap approach to getting these fans integrated into our smart home until i ran across this brilliant device. Each fan has four bulbs in it, so even just trying to get them integrated into our smart home would have been an expensive endeavor. . With this one device, however, we can control all three fans (including speed) and their lights, regardless of what room we're in. App control is possible but we almost exclusively use the device through alexa on our echo and echo dot devices. . Setup was easier than expected, as the device learned our remote with only one button being used; must have compared to a database the developers already had on file. I had completely expected to need to train the device button by button (which i would have been okay with) but i didn't need to do so. I didn't even have to find an extra power outlet for this device like i thought i might. Since its usb powered, i had an extra port on our router that i was able to use instead, saving me an outlet and the snaking of another power cord extension. . One thing that was a "nice to have" that i really appreciated was that the brightness of the light on the device is adjustable. Sounds like a small trivial thing, but over the holidays we had company over and the brightness from this light was an issue at night. No worries for me, though, as the developers were kind enough to add in a brightness adjustment in the app, along with the ability to turn it off if so desired. . So far it's been well worth the price (especially when comparing to the cost of 12 smart bulbs), and the fact that other types of devices may be added later is just icing of the cake.

W. Gina, Wirral

Super fast setup through the full featured app. Within a few minutes, google home was voice controlling my ceiling fan and light! can't wait for future upgrades allowing me to input other ir remotes and have bond control my tv too! best fan controller on the market with capability to grow into so much more thanks to active developers who care about their customers.

. Eva, Prince Edward Island says

Update: like others have said the devices aren't always available via the alexa skill and even sometimes in the app but they generally work themselves out after a while, hopefully they will work out the bugs in future firmware updates. . Setting up the device was very easy just setup an account then plug in the device and connect temporarily to it's ad hock network then select your wifi and give it the password, it then joins your network and your phone automatically switches back to your network and downloads updates and flashes the device then finishes setting it up. Once it is done your able to start adding your rf ceiling fans, when you press add it asks you what key you want to teach it, i'm guessing this is in case it doesn't recognize your remote, it then walks you through getting to the point where it is ready for you to press a button on your remote to teach it (you do have to have your remote very close it says within 2 feet at this point). The light flashes blue until it learns the button at which point the light turns solid green but the app still counts down the remaining 30 seconds then it detected my remote and presented all of the buttons to try which all worked and then press done to commit the changes. The first remote i taught it had 4 fan speeds and before presenting the remote for testing during the learning process it asked if it was a 3 or 6 speed fan so i chose 3 and it worked fine, there is very little difference between speed 2 and 3 anyway on my controller. The other remote i taught it only had 3 buttons so it recognized it just fine. I have one fan with an ir switch which i may end up changing the controller out at some point now that bond works so well. . While i had to have the remotes within 2 feet of the bond device while learning my bond device is on one side of my house near 1 fan but the other fan it controls is on the opposite end of the house and it works great too. . Alexa and google home integration both work well with their respective skills, ifttt integration is pretty light at the moment only allowing you to "turn on device" or "turn off device" which i'm not certain what that turns on or off at this point but i think it is both the fan and light. . It says they plan to add other supported devices:. Air conditioner. Motorized shades. Humidifier. Motorized windows. Electric fireplace. Smoke detector (use case:silence an alert maybe? ). Carbon monoxide detector (? ). And door bell (use case:tease the dog? ). . I sure hope electric fireplace will include remote controlled gas fireplaces as well.

F. Veronica, Worcestershire

Bond let me set up my ceiling fan to work with alexa. That was my goal and it was accomplished. The app could use a little polish. The first time it updated, i had to log into my account, again. They have met one of the goals the other reviewers mentioned regarding setting the fan speed via alexa i think, but i don't know how to do that. . Added info. I have three ceiling fans in my house that use a big box home improvement store's fan remote control devices. A couple of these controllers have been in use for quite a while. The bond device worked with all three controllers. . The only reason this didn't get 5 stars was that the app is still a little iffy. It takes a while to connect and the aforementioned having to log in again. The device itself has functioned perfectly according to my goals.

A. Campbell, Barnet says

Works great with alexa! i have this one unit that is controlling three ceiling fans on opposite ends of a 2500 sq. Ft. Home. Very solid hardware and software. Congratulations bond! well done!

H. Mahood, Enfield

Love it! had no problems with setup or use. Works great with alexa. Hoping for future ingestion with apple home.

V. Lisa, Ontario says

Thank you bond! i have been looking for and trying different solutions to bring my four minka aire concept iis into my smart home without much luck. Enter bond. All 4 fans online and working with alexa in under 10 minutes. . 1 month update: mostly still happy but lost one star. I notice that i constantly have to open the mobile app before i am able to use with alexa. I have also had to power cycle bond maybe once a week. The mobile app will not see any devices. Power cycle bond and everything works again. Hopefully updates will be released to fix the issues and allow me to add that star back and not take another one away.

. Edna, Merton

I have been wanting a wi-fi ceiling fan, but are they pricey. I saw this and thought i would give it a try. It's awesome, downloaded the app plugged it in, connected to my wifi, then point the current remote, and presto, wi-fi ceiling fan. Now to get alexa to see it, enable the bond home skill in the alex a app, then search for devices, and now you can just ask alexa to turn on fan, change speed, then on the light. Couldn't be happier.

Q. Theresa, Lancashire says

This device works seamlessly. The setup was easy and all my fans now operated via voice through my online store echo devices. Great addition to my smart home setup

. Nancy, Aquitaine says

This works! i have 2 harbor breeze fan/light, one in living room and one in bedroom. After setting up i put it in living room and no problem at all controlling both rooms' fan/light. One point, bond app on ios works better than on android. I was not able to pair anything from android but very easily on ios. It does have some limitation:. 1. My lights are dimmable by long press light button. There is no way to set up long press, which means i can only control light on or off. 2. Also to turn on or turn off light is same light button, i have to setup in a way that light in bond will turn on lights, but use power in bond to turn off lights. This power would also turn off fan. . But for me, all i need is turn on/off lights and fans, so works for me.

. Jarvis, Kent

At first this was very frustrating. Apparently if your wifi password has any special characters it can't connect. They are working on a fix but that won't be available for a while. Instead of changing my wifi password and having to change it on all my devices i made a guest network with a password the bond could connect to then i synced it with my echo. They have great customer service and will help you get connected if you are having problems. Once i got it working i really love this thing. It offers excellent bang for your buck in home automation. I have 6 ceiling fans that are all controlled by remotes and not hard wired wall switches so i thought i was out of luck with automating them. Well the bond easily connected to all of them to control the lights and fans in my 2700sf house from my echo or remotely from my iphone.

T. Widmer, Lorraine says

Works great on our ceiling fan! it picked up all the options that were on the remote. Can't wait till they add more devices!

C. Brendon, Ealing

Wow, this is awesome! i followed the easy instructions for setup, and within minutes, i was controlling two ceiling fans via alexa, including the fan light "alexa, turn on the master bedroom fan at 50%", and boom - there it goes! . . Couple of suggestions for future versions:. - keep track of state, especially of the light. When i added the "master bedroom fan light" to my alexa group for the master bedroom, the command "alexa, turn off the master bedroom" causes the "master bedroom fan light" to turn on, if it is presently off (which is the opposite of what i wanted). The bond apparently sends a "toggle light" command without keeping track of the state of the light, so therefore adding it to a room group is not a good idea. - when the bond recognizes my hampton bay remote, it shows duplicate light and dim buttons. I deleted the dupes, but that'd seem to be an error in the bond database of hampton bay remotes (unless i'm missing something). - state explicitly that bond does not work with lutron maestro fan and light switch (lutron ma-lfqhw-wh), as lutron uses line modulation to communicate, rather than rf. Took a bit of digging to figure that out, but - all good, it's not bond's problem, just an inherent incompatibility. I'll be removing my lutrons in favor of something that is bond compatible (because, g*d forbid, that i can't control my office fan with my voice - the horror :)

J. Carmen, Rochdale says

Setup is was easy. Works great on all the fans. Hopefully they add other items soon like portable fans.

. Benton, Bourgogne

I purchased my bond from the manufacturer's website. This device fills an absolutely unique niche area of home automation. If you own a fan that has an rf remote control, this device learns the radio signals from your original remote and then an android or ios app can control that fan and/or light kit. In addition, the bond app has an online store alexa home automation skill that when enabled, allows for voice control through alexa. I presently have two ceiling fans and one light kit being controlled by my bond. Setting the device up initially was very easy. I ended up having a problem with inconsistent performance on my master bedroom fan and gary from their online user support was extremely helpful in gathering information to correct the problem. I then spoke with chris who works with the bond engineers and my problem was completely solved and now my devices are all controlled flawlessly. The bond device support will be broadened to support other rf devices such as electric window shades and garage door openers as the software matures. I understand that a single bond can control up to 7 devices and that makes it much more cost effective than adding multiple z-wave smart switches, to say nothing of saving time and money on not having to install any electrical switches or connections. I have my bond in my "computer room" which is about 15-18 feet from the guest room fan it controls and about the same distance to the master bedroom fan and light kit it controls. I have nine alexa devices in my home, samsung smartthings, philips hue, and three logitech harmony hubs as well as two chamberlain myq garage door openers. I have close to 200 switches and automations in my home and the two ceiling fans that bond now controls filled the one remaining void in my home automation. This is a great product with great support and i look forward to seeing the bond control devices beyond ceiling fans in the future. One interesting side note is that since this device works so well, i have considered buying internal rf controls for my other fans since they would be so much less expensive (around $20) than smart switches and then my bond can control them as well.

S. Guest, New York says

Easiest way i've found to control your fan's with alexa. . I am really liking this bond home. It turned 4 fans and lights in my home into alexa controlled devices with ease. Works great for simple alexa control and the mobile app is a good replacement for the remotes, i want smartthings interrogation. Once i can control it light diming and the ceiling fan though smartthings with out using ifttt i'll be happy to give it 5 stars.

O. Mary, Idaho

I rushed home today when i received my alert that the bond had been delivered. I have 4 remote control fans, two are fanimation 6 speed fans. Because they are dc fans there was no other way to integrate phone/voice controls before this hub came out. I also connected 2 harbor breeze fans and the process was mostly smooth. The last fan forced closed several times after i sent the command, i unplugged the bond, let it restart and rebooted my phone and was able to finish the rest of setup. Easy integration into alexa, but was disappointed to see that wink integration is listed but is not currently working. Excellent build quality and the interface is simple, easy to grasp quickly. Thank you for filling this void in the market. . For harbor breeze fans i chose the power button for my first fan that i setup, and the random fan speed for the 2nd fan. My advise would be to try different buttons if you are not having success communicating to the hub. Also i had to hold it 2-3 feet from the base when pairing it. It should be noted is a fault for the cheap quality transmitter used in the harbor breeze remotes and can t really be blamed on this device. I got it to work but i had to play with it.

D. Laura, Sunderland says

So i have 3 remote-controlled fans, 2 of them have multi-speed fan controls plus single brightness light and the bond works excellent with these 2. My other 'simple remote' is a remote that only turns on/off the lights and on/off the fan. No fan speed controls. When i tried to teach the bond the 'light on' function on this remote it said it found the remote. But it wouldnt turn the light off if it was on. If i went to my regular remote and turned the light off then the bond would successfully turn the light it on when i hit the power button. So i had to teach it another 'power' function to turn off the light. And the bond's fan speed-1 would turn on the fan and fan speed-2 would turn the fan off. There should be a 'light on' as well as 'light off' plus 'fan on' and 'fan off' buttons. Like i said the 2 remotes with multi-speed fan controls and a single on/off for light work great with the bond. Looks like my 'simple fan remote' sends separate codes for power on versus power off. Not just a single signal that powers on when unit is off, and powers off when the unit is on. And the bond only sends one signal to power on or off the fan/light. Oh the time between button press and the action is performed is about 2 seconds. So it is not as fast as the regular remote. Now if the bond knew my phone and echo are on the lan it'd be faster to keep the commands local to the lan instead of sending it out to the internet and then back.

E. Kathlene, Louisiana

Simple to set up. works every time.

. Mable, Southend-on-Sea says

This works great with our fans. The only small complaint would be that for some reason on 2 of the fans it didn t mixed up the speed buttons (so on the app they were labeled wrong - 3 was medium, 1 was fast, 2 was slow). But honestly we really only had the medium speed anyway, so i just deleted the other two speeds. I think it s a remote issue, because we have 3 identical fans. The one that worked exactly right, we d replaced the in the box remote with a different but compatible remote; the two that mixed up the speed were the in the box remotes. Either way, it didn t affect my satisfaction once i figured out what i wanted it to do. I love that i can have alexa turn the fans and lights on and off now, and that i can use the remote as well. Scheduling fans/lights is also a nice extra feature. Overall i m very happy with this purchase.

Disadvantage and Critical reviews

Y. Gloria, Quebec says

It does allow you to control the fans. Can't wait for more. Of all the smart home things i've added. This one glitches the most. Super frustrating working through the help sections. And the customer service is way slow. By time they respond you'll have figured it out.

V. Claudia, Nova Scotia

I tried four different times to do the factory reset per the website because i kept getting the red ring. I was never able to get it to connect. It cut out during the set up process with an error that it could not update the firmware. I tried to select it in the app and update the firmware that way also and it still wouldn't work. Disappointing because i really wanted to try it out.

. Imelda, Leicester says

We purchased this after first posting a question as to if it would control six fans 2 yrs or less old with semi-smart full function rf remotes. After trying multiple times to install this on our fans only two partially worked. My son who is a programmer contacted support & after explaining the issue he was assured the problem would be fixed withing a few days. This was december but it hasn't been fixed as of 01/07/18. He did contact support again & was told it has something to do with the remotes having frequencies that hop. . I do understand this but i purchased a product that advertised to work on all ceiling fans & also alexa but so far nothing actually truly works. . My son was told they are working on issue but now there is no eta for fix. It seems this product is not ready for the public or at least not newer full function remote controlled fans that i have. . I am also very familiar with technology & have a very extensive home automation system using multiple platforms. All wall switches have been automated along with many outlets so automating ceiling fans sounded cool since we have 17 online store echos all over house. . I would have purchased a second one while they were on sale if it had worked. . These are the fans i have tried that do not work properly or at all. . Brand home decorators collection. . Models:. . Three of the breezemore 56 in. Indoor mediterranean bronze ceiling fan with light kit and remote control. . One of the aero breeze 60 in. Integrated led indoor/outdoor brushed nickel ceiling fan with light kit and remote control. This fan actually isn't installed yet but uses same remote & frequencies. . One of the herald 60 in. Indoor brushed nickel ceiling fan with light kit and remote control. . One of the hampton bay victoria french beige ceiling fan with is oldest fan i have at a little more than two years old. . I will update if fixed but i may soon just cut my losses and return before time runs out.

C. Patricia, Medway

Schedules does not work. Not much help from the company.

. Irene, Maryland says

Just received my bond and am completely dissatisfied. The app tells me that it has found my remote, however i have zero functionality over my fan via the app, no buttons work, and i have repeated the setup multiple times, with all 3 times having found different hzs that should work . I hope that the company would respond to this, and present an opportunity to bridge any gaps, otherwise i will be forced to request a full refund.

Z. June, Richmond upon Thames

This works well with one of my fans but very hit and miss with my fan in my office. Would surely like the technology to improve.

K. Benton, Languedoc-Roussillon says

List of issues in order of how annoying they are:. 1) most of the time the app doesn't find device on the network. 2) when it does find it on the network, adding new commands is a hit and miss. 3) after hours of adding commands i learned that they only support 6 devices (though on the 5th it stopped adding commands altogether). 5) when i tried to 'contact them' to request they add support for adjustable beds in the future, even the contact form didn't work! . 6) the 1st one i got was completely stuck during upgrade step 1 when you first get the app so i had to exchange via online store. Overall has potential but not ready for retail. If 1-6 get addressed, i'll update the review.

Q. Kellie, Liverpool

Product does not work, doesn't have instructions. I've tried for 2 weeks to get support to help. I never write reviews, so that i am writing this one tells you how passionate i feel about this product. Bond, great idea, poor execution. I recommend you sell your patent to logitech.

. Kristen, Waltham Forest says

I've had bond since december 2017, it controls fans and lights on all 4 of my fans through alexa, but not dimming. I'm still waiting for tech support to get back to me with a solution, after 12 emails back and forth, before the return period closes and it's not looking promising at this point. Looked very promising in the beginning but after almost a month it's getting tiresome.

J. Meghan, Niedersachsen

Right now this is a piece of beta junk that half the features don't even work on. Their website is super misleading and at this time there is only basic funtions for ceiling fans and ac units. While it can read the remote for my fan it it's compatible with the functionality. . I just don't believe all these 5 star reviews for a product with a premium price yet limited functionality. Right now the harmony hub is $30 less and actually has all these functions. I'm sticking with them, this was a waste of time.

S. Moore, Herefordshire says

Didn't work as advertised. Called and a lot of double talk, wanted me to keep it and hope for the best? why would i do that, should have come out when all the bugs were fixed. I wouldn't buy one.

U. Carrie, New Mexico

The bond didn t want to sync at first, took a few tries then after setup it started to say network error when trying to use it, i have to unplug it and restart it at least twice a day to keep it working. Great idea but very poor implementation of the software supporting the device. User interface is super basic, no landscape or tablet considerations, just doesn t work with multiple devices, super slow, plan on returning this asap.

E. Sally, Walsall says

This item does not work with my old or new casablanca celing fans. My old fan has its old computerized rf receiver called the inteli touch 3 that cannot be captured by the bond. Then my new casablanca celing fan that remote seemed to be paired with its own encrypted rf signal cannot be paired either ! it will work with the old dip switches you find in other branded fans but will not work with casablanca's inteli touch 3 , 9000s universal remote , versa touch 2 or advance touch.

I needed this to work, and i tried very hard to get it to. Managed to connect it, program, it, and use it only for it to stop working several times. Customer service is unresponsive so i give up.

I like that i did not have to build it myself or modify my fan control directly. It does work with alexa, but the alexa skill doesn't handle all the functions. I have both up and down lights on the fan. The skill only considers one "light" so i had to delete the down light from the learned bond skills so alexa would ignore it and control the up light. A shame after how well bond understood all the functions to have their alexa skill less cool. Alexa also looses track of the bond completely sometimes. I am not sure if it is a past internet outage, or something else. I have to unplug the bond and plug it back in to get it working

It will interface with alexa to turn on and change speeds, but the scheduling commands and the enable/disable switch don t work. Overall, not very smart.

A. Gladys, Wolverhampton says

Really wanted to use this but after setting up and resetting it over 10 times i gave up and support said that they don't accept wifi passwords with some special characters. Unfortunately i didn't want to fiddle around with this anymore and update passwords on all my devices just to use this at this time.

Seems to work only intermittently with alexa. I go the bond app and it works better than with alexa, but still is somewhat intermittent. It just seems like they haven't worked the kinks out.

F. Mable, Hartlepool says

It will not recognize my remote. Prior to purchasing i read that it would have dimming capability for the fan light, but it does not. If you ask customer service a question, they try and make it difficult to answer by sending a paragraph of questions. It shouldn't be this difficult. Not happy with this product nor the customer service provided with it.

This is a great concept but the execution is not that great. 3 stars mostly on the basis of the concept and how it could work vs how it actually does at this point. . The concept itself generalizes to many possibilities where you want to control a device by rf or ir with an app or your voice. . The current functioning of the device is to learn ir or rf commands from your ceiling fan remote and be able to issue those same commands using an app or voice agent (like online store alexa or google home) instead of the original remote. This sounds like a great idea that could apply to other remotes besides those for ceiling fans, but in practice, it does not yet work very well. . The directions for setting up the device and pairing with the remote are decent, but the actual process is confusing. You can easily wind up with way too many buttons, several duplicate buttons, and buttons that do nothing in the app like i did. It was then kind of painful to go through and push each button and decide whether to keep it or not. I also could not figure out how to label buttons to make it more intuitive. . Once i properly programmed the device and eliminated duplicate and non-working buttons (like motor reversal which my ceiling fan cannot do), then the app really works well. . It seems to control my ceiling fan as expected once i figured out what each button does. The light dimmer function was particularly confusing but if you hold the button down it slowly dims to off and if you continue to hold it it slowly brightens to max. Once you press the dimmer it is hard to know when you have gotten it to go back to 100% if you ever want to do that again, which of course you do. Outside of the dimming feature, which honestly was a benefit that my current remote cannot do, the controls through the app are fine as long as the bond is on my network. . However, my home is very automated and i can use apple siri, online store alexa, and google home to control most devices. I bought this because bond advertises that i can use the latter 2 to control it. However, this is the part that is very disappointing. It works differently and in my estimation poorly with either voice agent (and has no siri capability at all). With alexa i cannot get it to control my ceiling fan light at all. I can get the fan to turn on or to go to a certain speed between 0 and 100 by asking it to set the ceiling fan to that number. My actual control has only 3 speeds so this is very odd to me, and i certainly cannot have the 3 speeds i am used to by the remote or the app. With google home, i can turn the ceiling fan light on or off easily, but the fan itself can only be turned on or off and i cannot seem to control the speed at all. . One other odd thing is that neither online store alexa nor google home keeps a consistent connection as it does to my other home automation products. The bond device is powered on and blue at times, when neither can find it on the network. I tried to unplug and plug back in to no avail, and i finally figured out that if i go to the app on my iphone and press some buttons to control the device, it seems to wake back up and then i can use the limited and inconsistent voice commands as above. . For these reasons, i characterize voice commands through online store alexa and google home as not yet working. Not at all intuitive and flexible control, not able to control most features, and inconsistent connectivity. Since this is my main reason to get bond, i am disappointed, but hopeful that they will rev the product and fix these things, as they seem like fixable issues since the device is certainly capable of working reasonably as the iphone app shows. . If they can fix the voice control to be easy, intuitive, and work reliably, then i would easily update my ratings to 5 and alter this review. . If they can extend the app into other areas like controlling my tv/media system, they will get not only a 5 star review, but i will be telling many many people that i know to buy this device. I do a lot of technology stuff and love home automation so have many friends and acquaintances who make purchases based on what i recommend.

G. Theresa, Midi-Pyrenees says

This does not connect to all fans as advertised. Seems like a rushed product with limited functionality. Will not work with 4. 3mhz remotes. Customer service is minimal, bond still does not work for my fan. Wait for them to refine before purchasing a paper weight.

This is what i have to tell all my online store review followers. Please have your engineering department check whats wrong with my receivers and remote not connecting to my bond. Again the number on the remote is fcc id: kujce9601. Please contact me as soon as you have resolved this issue. I still have 5 fans that do not work. . I am not sure if it will work. I have remote ceiling fans at home, 6 of them. I called customer service after i purchased the bond and non of them were able to connect to bond. I gave the serial number and model of the fan and remote to customer service on chat line. They said they would get back to me from the engineering department . After 3 weeks no one has said anything. To experiment i purchased a newer remote control unit from hunter douglass and replaced the old receiver and control. It worked in seconds. Bond was able to recognize it in lightning speed. From my experience, this is what in all fairness i can say:. 1)if your receiver and remote are older , there are great chances it wont work, it happened to me. 2)customer service only went so far, so beware if you expect this to work out of the box, . 3) it is a newer product and designed to work with newer receivers and remotes. So if at the end it does not work and you do not want to replace the receiver and remote in your ceiling fan, then just return it and wait for either a more updated version or till you replace your equipment to start from zero with a fresh install. Additionally, if your home internet pass word has special characters, bond will not be able to connect to your wi-fi. You will have to delete and create a new password for your home network so bond can connect to wi-fi . Not so simple when you have many connected devices and have to reset the password on all of them. So does this make your old ceiling fan new? maybe, depending on how old, brand, type of receiver signal etc. Still a hit and miss, you wont know till you try. Also it would be of great help if the bond staff would populate a list with the model numbers of the receivers, remotes and brands that do actually work with bond already.

2nd update: 12/23 - began working again by itself. I left it alone for a few days and it re-established a connection all by itself. If it stays connected for a few more days i will upgrade my rating of the product, but i am not too happy with the inconsistent behavior of the product. . Update: 12/20 - unfortunately i have to revise my review. My bond was working great, responding to all my commands until last night. When i attempted to control my fans alexa indicated that it could not find the devices. The bond app is working, but it has begun to lose connectivity with my echo. Last night i tried a combination of unplugging and re-plugging the bond, then removing the fans from the alexa app, and signing out of the bond app. After several attempts, the bond app synchronized with alexa. However, this night it did the same and nothing would get alexa to find the fans. According to alexa, the device is unresponsive. . Everything else connected to my echo is working fine, including some 12 smart plugs and two nest thermostats. The only problem is the fans. I'm sending bond back for a replacement to give it one more shot. If that doesn't work, i'll return it for good. Fyi: i'm using the app on an iphone 8 plus and i have a 2nd generation echo. Everything is less than a month old. . Original review: worked nearly perfect for me. I am using it to control four minka aire concept ii ceiling fans. Two are operating on the same frequency, the other two have their own frequencies. Bond duplicated the remotes for three of the fans perfectly, but has trouble duplicating the remote for the unit in the dining room. For that one i had to setup each button (i. E. , control function) separately. . The drawback is that for that fan, i don't have the option to dim the lights. I plan to swap out to factory remote and set the fan to a new frequency and reattempt the setup. In the meantime, bond provides me with the functionality i was searching for. I plan to add another fan upstairs and hope that the product developer releases functionality for remote controlled fireplaces. Hoping it'll work on my old rf controlled fireplace.

I commented on another review so part of my review will be duplicated. I am not yet ready to send back my bond but that is likely because i received a free $50 online store gc (nothing to do with online store or bond), bought on sale for $81 so this really only cost me $31. I am hoping for the garage door functionality soon. My hampton bay fan (probably installed in 2000, i've only been here 2 years) doesn't have any of the buttons asked by the bond app. My fan and light button aren't just toggle buttons. If i hold them down they dim or change fan speed. This makes it very difficult to get this to work correctly with my fans. I am able to "trick" the bond app by not holding the button but hitting it multiple times. Unfortunately i get different results. One time it is only a light off button, another time it is only a light on button. The software and app need a lot of work before this will be primetime ready. . On a positive my hampton bay outdoor fan light button is a toggle and their are low, medium and high fan buttons. The bond app appears to have identified it correctly and it works. This fan light comes on at random times at night so i am hoping to utilize the bond for this annoyance. For example, now i can leave the remote outside where it belongs and use bond to turn it off in the middle of the night when it comes on.

W. Edith, Wisconsin says

I had been looking for something to control a couple of ceiling fans, so i could get rid of the big clunky remotes. Set up was relatively easy and one fan works perfectly. But the interface with the other one, a hampton bay, takes two commands to turn off. Their customer support chat line coudn t figure it out and no one has gotten back to me after two weeks.

I was very excited about the bond and have been watching developement for some time. I ordered as soon as it became available. I have my home set up with over 50 internet-connected devices working through hue, nest, smartthings, ifttt, harmony remote, alexa, and google assistant. I am no stranger to getting these things working. While i really believe the bond is a great piece of hardware, the software and back-end are half-baked at best. I was able to make several of my fans "do something. " meaning i could get one function or another to work intermittently. I could never achieve anything close to what i would consider full control over any one of them. Light but no dimming, high speed and off but no low speed, etc. There is no way to input any information about the remote you're trying to mimic with a part number, model, or brand; you instead have to press a button on your current remote and allow bond to (poorly) guess the remote. The software doesn't even indicate what their guess is or provide a list from which you could choose. I would advise the bond folks to look to logitech's harmony remote if they want to know how to make the setup process smooth and accessible to those less techy people who are only now getting into home automation (or better yet, license this great hardware to them. ) so for now, i'm sending my bond back. I will still keep an eye on them and reconsider once they get the software and back-end to the point where i won't lose a week of my time trying to get things only sort of working.

H. Morgan, Rutland says

It definitely works with all 5 of my ceiling fans in my home which i have 3 different models of. No problems with connecting and works fine between walls up to 50 feet. However i would like to see it expanded to include other rf devices like my garage door and rf controlled outlets or other "custom" items. According to the manufacturer custom items and garage doors are coming soon. My main con is the arbitrary limit of 6 devices which to me seems to serve absolutely no purpose. I already have used 5 ceiling fans and do not have much room to add more. I would give this device 5 stars once the device limit is either removed or raised to something higher like 25 and when the manufacturer releases more compatible devices.

Pros:. Simple setup, and has tons of potential. Senses your original remote and comares it to codes in the database. Takes a few seconds to find the profile and your up and running (kind of). . Now for the bad. . Cons:. Setup is too simple. The profiles do not exactly match my ceiling fan. This needs an advaced option to allow the importation of each function from the original remote. Not the randomly chosen one. Additionally, it feels clunky. Find myself pressing a function several times to get it to work. More often than not, i just give up and use the aging remote it was purchased to augment. . Keeping it with hopes they will push an update to fix the issues. Perhaps my hopes were too high?

R. Joanna, Sefton says

Definitely not ready for prime time. Manufacturers really shouldn't rush these things out while so much of the promised functionality is under development. The app looks like an alpha version. Google home integration is not functioning. Hardware is ok, but my guess is the software/server side of this is 6+ more months in the making. Recommend you wait and watch.
