The Bond ecosystem seems to be in a good position to stay relevant, and also slowly expand / partner with more manufacturers.
The Bond Bridge is their first party catch-all device to retrofit existing RF and IR devices in your home, and additionally they license / partner with manufacturers to embed Smart by Bond compatible receivers in ceiling fans (including, I believe, some models carried in big-box stores).
The other nice part of this ecosystem is the local-first API - meaning that if for some reason the company was acquired or unable to continue supporting their products (as much as I hope that never happens!), the existing Bond and Smart by Bond devices would
largely continue to function as-is, though of course features would be frozen at then-current states.
Integrations with professional plugins, community developed modules, or strange DIY Frankenstein solutions are all fairly available, depending on your needs.
Some of the company’s developers and staff do check in on these forums often enough to keep in touch with us (the customers and eager beta testers), as well.
