Hi @jppadula, it does sound like you may have received the wrong motor. I am very sorry about that; please contact us through the contact form on the website and we will quickly arrange a swap for you.

Voltage, polarity, wire size, etc. / Re: non responsive motor

Just noticed the motor's label lists "radio" is it possible this motor is designed for RF operation instead of hardwire? I have tried the motors programming switch and after holding for 4 seconds and releasing I get four rapid beeps followed by a motor twitch forward and back and then 6 long beeps. This only happens with positive polarity on the blue stripe. It appears this motor needs a fixed DC polarity and RF communication for up and down. The hardwire controller I was sent sends alternating DC polarity. I'm thinking I was sent the incorrect motor/controller combination for my application which is using a third party programmable remote and  relay control? PhenQ | https://phenq-reviews.com

Are you looking to have those with or without the hemisphere ?

Hi @prenrick, thanks for your interest.

Could you send me the link to what you saw on Youtube? We have had quite a few clients use our remote control motors to do that type of project.

Best Regards, Adrian

Hi...
I saw on youtube a video by Gary Prince and it showed the fine finished product as a printed motorized blind as a tv cover. I need some detailed direction/tutorial on how I can do the exact installation...including the source of printed blind to use with the rollertrol system.
I hope someone still pays attention to this forum and can offer dome help. https://www.stlcurioshoppe.com/v-tight-gel-review/
Thanks

Hi, we bought some vinyl blinds at Home Depot and modified them by inserting motors into the rollers, see this 'how to' article: Volume Pills | Hersolution Gel | Male Extra | SizeGenetics | Vigrx Plusacc

You can share it with those who are not making the normal things in motors type seriously

Yes. The speeds are adjustable and I was able to get it close enough.

Did you actually experiment with this at all, Bryblind? I'd love to hear about your experiences.

Hello, thanks for your interest.

The shade delpoyment speed is determined by several factors, such as motor design, tube diameter, and weight of shade. It is unlikely that your arrangement would result in the same speed of delployment, but you will be able to program the travel limits so that they always end up in the same place.

You can compare the speed of motor types in our cart, but please keep in mind the tube diameter also plays a signifigant role:

I have some Rollease 1.5" tubes adjacent to 1" tubes.  If I mix and match motors, will they roll/unroll the shades at the same rate?

Hello, we couldn't say for sure if you could use our motors, but anything that has strings running through it to the hem bar can usually be motorized by using what we call a "bare tube winder" approach (at the top of the shade).

Probably the best example of this would be our article series on how to motorize Roman shades:
