Bond Fan Controller and Fan Speeds

Hello,
I am currently using a Bond fan controller with SmartThings. I’m running into a minor issue in regards to turning off fans via the dashboard. I can use the fan tile to cycle through “low/med/high”, but nothing happens with I get to “off”. Looking in the SmartThings app, I see the slider for the fan speeds, but on/off appears to be a switch (on the same device screen, but separate from the speed slider). Is there a way to have the “off” command within the tile switch the fan off? Also when I make changes in the SmartThings app, the are reflected on the tile with the exception of “off”.

Thanks, James

James-
Thanks for the message. Unfortunately, it sounds like the Bond device isn’t following the “Fan Speed” capability which should turn off when the fan speed is set to 0 and should report a fan speed of 0 when it’s off.

Would you mind sharing a copy of the device details?

  1. Open your SharpTools.io User Page
  2. Tap the ... next to your desired location
  3. Tap on the Bond Fan Controller device
  4. Copy and paste the Capabilities and Attribute Values sections here (or screenshot them)

Sure, thanks for taking a look.

Thanks! I sent a PM to the Bond guys who are active in the SmartThings community. Let’s see what they have to say. :smiley:

Setting speed to 0 is not allowed via the Bond’s API (in favor of an explicit “TurnOff”), so you’re probably getting an error response from the Bond.

It hasn’t been a problem in our testing because our SmartThings controllers for fans don’t offer speed 0. We can just make “SetSpeed 0” map to “TurnOff” in the integration, should be pretty straightforward.

Great! Thanks to you both. :grinning:
