Bond is a new smart home gadget which seeks to bring iPhone and voice control to older devices you may have in your home. The gadget connects to your smartphone over Wi-Fi and controls other applications through inferred or radio frequency. Unlike other devices we’ve featured, Bond hopes to add smart functionality to devices we already have in our homes, rather than replace them. From controlling your ceiling fans, motorized window shades and even your fireplace, Bond hopes to turn any home into a smart home. At launch, Bond claims to support popular devices such as the Amazon Echo, Nest, SmartThings, Honeywell and more.
While Bond doesn’t currently have a ship date, it is available for preorder now at the starting price of $99.
