Bond Bridge - 2.4GHz remotes are not supported

In the current version of the BOND we are not supporting 2.4GHz remotes. This is something we plan on supporting.

In the context of ceiling fans the one remote users found that is 2.4GHz is

Remote model: 7RC04-CF00001 
FCCID: R8Y7RC04-CF 100001 

We will keep you updated once we are rolling out a version of the BOND that will support 2.4GHz remotes.

  • This isn’t shouldn’t be feature request though it’s clearly a defect. Still voting for it thou ! The one fan I bought this for and I still can’t use it months later

  • How annoying to find this thread. :(

    Really desperate to find an RF blaster that supports my fans.

    I eventually determined that it was on the 2.4Ghz band, and was hoping Bond could support.

    Does anyone have an update of when BOND will support this style?
    Or does anyone have any good blogs on any other products that would work on 2.4Ghz?

  • Unfortunately no products that I have found will work with 2.4Ghz.
    It's been more than 2 years for 2.4 Ghz support; I expect at this point it will never happen.

  • I agree this needs to be fixed. Let's please see an update here. Question: Is the device physically capable of producing 2.4 GHz signals?

  • Are you all updating anything? Not supporting this after 3 years of "it might be coming" is unacceptable. I see the same thing with HomeKit support.

    Thought this would be a cool update to my system - but doesn't work with most current and/or premium devices.

  • "Unfortunately we are not supporting this remote as it is a 2.4GHz remote. The great majority of fan remotes are under 434MHz. The BOND will eventually support proprietary 2.4GHz remote controls but this is something that will take few months for us to achieve."

    Right on this website:
    "Works with any remote-controlled ceiling fan"

    NOT TRUE.
    THEY ARE STILL FALSE ADVERTISING AFTER 3 YEARS OF COMPLAINTS.

  • We need a resolution on this please. Can someone please give us an honest answer. If it won’t work please tell us so we can stop trying and move on to another solution. Thank you!

  • I also have a pair of monty carlo fans with the 7rc04-cf10001 remote, and bought the bond to control them - it would be great to get some indication as to whether supporting these is still on the road map - otherwise I'll probably return the bond, take apart one of the remotes, and operate it via mqtt.
