Is there any interest in a plugin for Bond Ceiling Fan controller if I write one?

    I have an unused Bond sitting around the house now, so I can test things for you. I'd offer to mail it to you but I live on the other side of the planet and postage is insane.
    ARGH!!!! I wish you lived closer....LOL. I could really use one for testing I'm likely going to buy one, but now hearing all this I'm going to wait until I know the API is released.

    Bomd posted this on their twitter feed on Feb 12, 2019 to add to a request that was made in Feb of 2018 about an API.

    its in the pipeline but timeline is not yet available. Sorry i know a lot of people are excited for it to be implemented. We will let you guys know as soon as its ready to be released. email us at customerservice@olibra.io for other inquiries
    .

    At this point I will not be holding my breath. I hope they do release an API, but based on all the BS they have been spewing for the last several years I doubt a local API that does not require some sort of cloud connection with their cloud servers will ever happen.

    Bond is not all that complicated of a device. One could probably use an SDR to capture the signals and then retransmit them.

    Here is an instructables on someone doing it.

    I too have a Bond that is controlling three ceiling fans.....they have been promising the release of an API and kept saying it was going to be released in a couple months...every couple of months for well over a year.

    I’m interested in a plugin....just hoping it’s true...

    Yes, was on my list to write one as well but happy to defer to you if you take it on. Currently have 1 device but planning on adding 2-3 more.

    I looked at the Bond fan controller about a year ago. It was a nice device that solved a problem. There was talk about implementing local control back then too. I am glad they are finally getting around to implementing it.
