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.
Serving both residential and commercial applications, 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 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 or business 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 N. 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 Pro’s functionality plays to the very heart of what consumers seek in smart shade control. This is validated in Bond Bridge’s extensive survey of 100,000 active users of the Bond Bridge platform. Easy-to-read and informative, the survey identifies that convenience, voice control, integration, security and Smarthome are all key drivers. Access the survey here: https://bit.ly/3BspihN
