Bond


The Bond integration allows you to control appliances through your Bond Bridge. Duplicates your RF remote control.

Supported devices (see Requirements section below):

  • Ceiling fans
  • Shades
  • Fireplaces

Prerequisites

To use Bond controlled devices in your installation, add your Bond hub host and access token from the integrations page. Instructions for how to obtain an access token can be found on the Bond Local API documentation, which includes a section for how to obtain the IP address of the device which you will need to obtain the access token.

Configuration

Adding Bond to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by taking the following steps:

  • Browse to your Home Assistant instance.
  • In the sidebar click on Configuration.
  • From the configuration menu select: Integrations.

Bond can be auto-discovered by Home Assistant. If an instance was found, it will be shown in the top of the list of integrations as “Discovered”. If that is the case click on the Configure button to start setting up the discovered instance.

If there wasn’t any discovered automatically, don’t worry! You can set up a manual integration entry:

  • In the bottom right, click on the Add Integration button.
  • From the list, search and select “Bond”.
  • Follow the instruction on screen to complete the set up.

After completing, the Bond integration will be immediately available for use.
