I have several motorized shades that I have set up and are working (even, with IFTTT integration). I set it up as a ‘fireplace’ after seeing something online about it. I read that this approach also works if you set it up as a ‘ceiling fan’ but I didn’t test this.
I have several motorized shades that are sold/rebranded by Dooya. I was able, after setting up a new ‘fireplace’, to set ‘on’/‘off’/‘up’/‘down’ actions to the up/down control on the remote. I just changed it to the proper remote channel and Bond learned it perfectly. So, although it’s a bit hacky for now, it does indeed work!
However, I have a new motorized shade by Rollease Acmeda. This motorized shade uses some kind of proprietary Rf technology which they call ‘ARC’. Bond was able to ‘learn’ this remote too, however, it won’t control them at all.
Rollease Acmeda sells its own hub called ‘Pulse Automate’, but I’d rather just use my existing Bond!
Some other users have reported similar issues from various Rf devices; see:
I’m wondering if it’s the frequency or if there is some kind of special ‘learning’ code that is separate. I’d be willing to do some troubleshooting if there’s a way to get a command line output of what Bond is able to read?
