motorized window blinds
  Bulletin - 3 Levels of Blind, Shade, & Window Control 

Level 1 - RollerTrol™ Simple Remote Controls: We designed our system so that you can start out with our simple wall mount and hand held remotes for our shade/blind motors and skylight/window openers, then upgrade later to a more advanced system. Your investment is preserved as any remotes you purchase will still work, even if you upgrade to level 2 or 3 later. The remote control signals will be 'learned' and used by the higher levels of automation (see our blind & shade automation guide).

Level 2 - BroadLink® RF-IR Blaster Automation Hub: See our affordable blind and shade hub, operated by Android and IOS apps. This RF-IR blaster hub can learn RF radio signals for our blind motors and skylight/window openers and IR learning for TV. Convert old phones and tablets into WiFi home automation controllers!

Level 3 - Z-WAVE® Blind Automation: This protocol is often used in home automation systems. We have a Z-Wave interface for roller shade and blind motors, and Z-Wave control of our skylight and window opener systems. You can also add support for voice control systems such as Alexa® and Google Home®.

Mermet® Custom Shades: For those of you wanting a more complete solution, we are now offering high quality shade and blind fabrics from Mermet®, mounted on standard tubing. Our motors just slide in and lock in place - no fuss no muss! Please check our Custom Blinds and Shades website for info.

Here is a list of links to the various instructions. Please note that all our remotes work in a very similar fashion, but the setting button may be in slightly different locations, and the back cover may not need to be removed (GQ series)

PLEASE NOTE NEW INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHANGING TRAVEL LIMITS AT A LATER TIME:

This applies only if you come back at a later time to change the travel limits. It can be done with the master remote that you originally set up the motor with, or a cloned remote:

  • 1. Change the channel to the motor you wish to change
  • 2. Operate the motor until it reaches a travel limit
  • 3. Press the UP and DOWN buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds
  • 4. Motor enters travel limit setting mode (motor responds with 4 beeps and a jog)
  • 5. Adjust travel limit with UP/DOWN buttons
  • 6. Exit travel limit settings by pressing STOP 5 times, or long press STOP for 3 seconds (motor responds with 5 beeps and a jog)

We sincerely hope you enjoy using these advanced motors; if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time!
