Olibra, parent company of the Bond Bridge RF-to-WiFi home control solutions, has announced compatibility with Nice interior window shade motors.
The Bond Bridge Pro simplifies and unifies control of window shades, awnings and ceiling fans by replicating their RF remote control’s commands, the company explains. The Bond Home smartphone/tablet app offers capabilities including scheduling/programming, plus voice-control through Josh.ai, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and SmartThings apps.
Olibra says the compatibility enables integrators to use Bond Bridge Pro 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, the company says.
Bond Bridge Pro operates shades by Somfy, Rollease Acmeda, Bofu, A-OK, Dooya, J. Geiger and Nice. It integrates with Elan (Nice/Nortek Control), Savant, Control4, Crestron, URC, RTI, Homebridge and Hubitat home automation systems.
Bond Bridge Pro controls up to 50 devices in a 3,500-square-foot home and for larger installations multiples can be used, the company adds.
