PowerShades and Bond Home are have announced that PowerShades’ RF remote-controlled automated window shades are now compatible with the Bond Bridge Pro. The Bond Bridge Pro ($379 MSRP) brings app-based (smart phone, tablet) control and integrates with home automation systems and voice activation platforms. This new compatibility with Bond Bridge Pro will allow PowerShades’ automated shades to integrate with Apple Home Kit, Josh.ai, and other home automation systems.
PowerShades offers indoor and outdoor motorized roller shades with a broad range of customization and automation options. Its automation features include setting scenes and schedules, voice control, cloud-based connectivity, mobile app control, and more.
A single Bond Bridge Pro can control as many as 50 shades in a 3500-square-foot home. For larger jobs, multiple Bond Bridge Pros can be used. Configuring the Bond Home App for control of PowerShades is easy — the installer or end-user selects PowerShades during setup in the Bond Home App on their smart phone or tablet.
When integrated with Bond Home’s optional wireless, battery-powered Sidekick for Shades or Sidekick Scene keypads (MSRP $79) and a home automation system, the Bond Home App and automation system allows the user to see the status of the shades operations and set up shade limits.
