Here is another smart home hub that lets you control your appliances from your smartphone. The Bond can control RF & IR remote-controlled appliances. You will be able to use it to control ceiling fans, garage door, shades, and everything in between from your smartphone. The Bond integrates with Amazon Echo, so you can use voice commands to control your home.
Using PicoBond, RF waves are translated to infrared light, allowing you to control IR devices. The Bond is easy to use. Download its app, point your old remote at the device, wait for the light to turn Blue, and you are ready to control your appliances from your phone. You can control up to 6 different products and put them on a schedule.[where to get yours]
