If there is an issue with Google correctly interrupting the fan speed, please try using the Beaufort name from the information below.

On a 6 speed fan you would say "Hey Google, set ceiling fan to Hurricane Force" to set the fan to speed 6.

 

Fan speed control was implemented on 4/30/2018 so if you have linked the BOND service to Google prior to 4/30/2018, you will need to unlink and link the BOND service to use fan speed.

  • Any idea when this will be coming to Alexa?

  • Can the next ask of Google be to support Reverse?

  • I can only turn on and off the fan with Google Assistant. Light control, light brightness and fan speed all fail to work. Is there a github project I could contribute to in order to fix these issues?
