Olibra, parent company of the Bond Bridge RF-to-Wi-Fi home control solutions, has announced compatibility with Nice interior window shade motors.
The Bond Bridge Pro ($379) simplifies and unifies control of window shades, awnings, and ceiling fans by replicating their RF remote control’s commands. The Bond Home Smartphone/Tablet App brings new capabilities, too. This includes scheduling/programming, plus voice-control through Josh.ai, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and SmartThings Apps. Bond Bridge Pro controls up to 50 devices in a 3500-square-foot home and multiples can be used for larger installations.
In North America, Nice does not offer a native app solution like Bond Bridge. In the past installers have had to piece together third-party accessories that are not as robust. Bond Bridge Pro is the only way to wirelessly control Nice powered window shades natively in North America. It can also now serve as a single unifying operating system when Nice and other shade motors are used in an installation. This streamlines the effort, reduces accessories costs and eliminates the need for additional training.
Bond Bridge Pro operates shades by Somfy, Rollease Acmeda, Bofu, A-OK, Dooya, J. Geiger, and Nice, and integrates with ELAN, Savant, Control4, Crestron, URC, RTI, Homebridge, and Hubitat home automation systems.
