Connect Your Existing Remote-Controlled Fans to Your Smart Home with BOND & Automate Actions Using, App, Voice, or IFTTT

We want to automate and connect things. BOND is about connecting the things you previously couldn’t to your SMART home. BOND + IFTTT are perfect partners for the ultimate climate control.

Olibra, creators of BOND Home, the home automation solution that turns standard remote -controlled ceiling fans into SMART devices, today announced integration with IFTTT applets. The actions now available allow smart home owners to continue using the fans they already own and connect them via WiFi to home automation systems. Compatible systems include Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, SmartThings, Ecobee, Ring, and Nest.

According to Olibra CEO, Zohar Shinar, “IFTTT is part of the community we live in. We want to automate and connect everything in our homes, but that isn’t always possible. The BOND is about connecting the things you couldn’t - like ceiling fans - to your SMART home. We’re excited about the features and functions the new IFTTT actions offer, making it easier to keep room temperatures cool and comfortable.”

Some of the new actions the IFTTT actions add to the BOND include:

  • SmartThings owners can start their fans automatically when unlocking their door or if it detects a presence in the room.
  • Smart thermostat owners of Warmup, Ecobee, or Nest can automatically start their ceiling fans based on room temperature changes.
  • Automatic fan controls can be triggered with real-time forecast changes from Weather Underground notifications

Launched in time for the holiday season and available online (, through Amazon ( and Home Depot (, BOND Home makes the perfect gift for anyone interested in automating their home. For $99, the BOND connects up to six existing remote -controlled fans instantly and eliminates the need to purchase new, smart ceiling fans that can cost hundreds of dollars more.
