Hello all, and I am glad to join the community. I found Bond and was immediately interested and had a chat with Sophia on the customer support live chat and I was very impressed with the upfront information (even if it wasnt what I wanted to hear).
Basically I want to share my string of how to get my RF controlled blinds to be controlled by my Google Home. I havent actually purchased a Bond Bridge yet, but I might in the future, hoping this would work. So here goes!
To preface, click HERE to view the RF controller I have as my Motor control, simple click of “Up” or “Down” button starts a continuous motion until the “stop” button has been pressed. So hopefully Bond Bridge will be able to connect to this 433 MHz RF remote.
I would tell Google Home, “Ok Google, Open the Living Room Blinds”
Google Home would trigger the Bond Home app to send the “Up” command via RF to the controller.
But because my setup does not stop automatically, I need to set up a stop command as well. Making things a bit more complicated.
So when I tell Google Home, “Ok Google, Open the Living Room Blinds” it would also trigger a IFTTT Webhooks function running a Delayed API found here
Then when IFTTT recieves that delayed message, trigger SmartThings to Tell the Bond Home to send the Stop/Off RF signal to the motor control.
What do you guys think? Any flaws or recommendations?
Again this is entirely dependent on IF I can get the Bond Bridge to connect and transmit the RF remote for the controller.
