Bond Bridge Pro RF-to-WiFi Control Platform Now Extends to Interior Window Shades Powered by Nice Sun Shading Solutions Cresskill, NJ - July 14, 2022 - Olibra, parent company of the award-winning Bond Bridge RF-to-WiFi home control solutions, today 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 fifty devices in a 3,500 square foot home and for larger installations multiples can be used. 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 which 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, Nice, J. Geiger, Rollease Acmeda, Bofu, A-OK, and Dooya and integrates with ELAN, Savant, Control4, Crestron, URC, RTI, Homebridge and Hubitat home automation systems. In 2021 CE Pro Magazine recognized Bond Bridge Pro with their IoT/Connected Product award (Control Interface category) which honored residential and commercial market IoT-related products.

Bond Bridge and Josh.ai Join Forces in Bringing Voice Control to Motorized Window Shades, Ceiling Fans and Fireplaces in Control4 Installations Cresskill, NJ - May 10, 2022 – The result of a strategic alliance between Bond Bridge and Josh.ai, home technology professionals can now marry the two in their client’s Control4 environments. The pairing provides Josh.ai’s natural voice control of motorized window shades, ceiling fans, and fireplaces that are managed by the Bond Bridge RF-to-WiFi home control platform. The Bond Bridge RF-to-WiFi hub along with the Bond Home Smartphone/Tablet App consolidate control of Somfy and Rollease shades and most ceiling fans. No installation or wiring is required, and for larger jobs multiples can be used. Bond brings the added benefits of programming capabilities, and now full-featured voice automation in Control4 projects courtesy of Josh.ai. The basic Bond Bridge ($99) can manage thirty appliances in a 2,500 sq. ft. home. The step-up Bond Bridge Pro ($379) can manage fifty in a 3,500 sq. ft. home - bringing simplified, unified control to larger projects and covering the entire home. Bond Bridge Pro also incorporates an Ethernet port with POE technology which makes for easy integration with Control4. Once Bond Bridge Pro is integrated with Control4 and Josh.ai, clients are empowered to use Josh.ai’s simple and private voice control throughout their living spaces. Every family member can continue personalizing their experience by adding aliases to favorite devices and creating custom scenes in the Josh app. Josh.ai’s proprietary natural language processing offers features like making multiple requests in a single command, contextually adjusting surroundings, and remembering the last device that was spoken to. For example: “Ok Josh, raise the west blackouts, lower the first-floor solar sheers, and set the fan speed to high.”
