Programming FAQs

Why am I unable to pair remote to the motor?

The pairing is a sequence that has a time limit. When you press and hold the P button on the motor head until the blinds jogs one time, you must then press and hold the STOP button on the desired remote/channel within 2 seconds, and the blinds will jog twice to confirm that it is paired.

How do I set limits?

When programming a motor for the first time, after it is paired to a channel, you should first check direction. To change direction, press UP and DOWN simultaneously. Then set limits. Adjust your top limit position, then press and hold UP and STOP until the motor jogs and beeps. Then move the shade to the bottom position and adjust its position to where you want it to be. Press DOWN and STOP and the motor will jog and beep, to confirm the limit. Then, the motor is programmed and will run as normal.

My limit position needs to be adjusted. How do I do that?

Move the shade to somewhere near where you want the limit to be. For the top limit, press and hold UP and STOP until the motor jogs, and release. The motor will be in step mode and you can adjust the position as you prefer. Then press and hold UP and STOP and the motor will jog to signal that it has recorded that limit. Follow the similar procedure to adjust the bottom limit. Press DOWN and STOP.

Please note that it takes longer to open the limit than it does to close it. This is intentional.

Why does a motor "LOSE" its limits?
  • The battery is dead
  • Someone accidentally reset the motor to factory settings
Can you hide channels that are not in use?

Yes, on a multi-channel remote, they can be adjusted to show the number of channels in use; e.g. if there are 8 motors on the job you can select it to be an 8 channel remote.

What is channel 0 for?

All motors that are programmed to the same remote, automatically respond to channel 0. For example, on channel 0, pressing the up button will move all blinds that are programmed to that remote up.

Why can't I program another channel to my motor? I was able to pair the motor to the first transmitter, but I can’t get it to pair to the next channel.

Before a motor can accept programming from another channel or transmitter, the limits must be set so that the motor is in normal operational mode.
