Motorized blinds are a no-brainer choice for hard to reach windows, or those of us who just want to stay in bed for a few more minutes. Not to mention that because they’re completely cordless, they are a safer choice for homes with kids and pets.

How To Program Remote Control for Motorized Blinds

Get started installing your motorized blinds by making sure that the blind and remote control recognize each other.

Follow these steps:

  1. Raise shade all the way to the top by pressing the “up” button on the remote.
  2. Remove plastic end cap from right end of shade headrail. Either pry it off or remove small phillips head screw.
  3. Unplug battery wand from shade for 3-5 seconds and plug back in.
  4. Press and release beige rectangular button inside shade headrail with paperclip or ballpoint pen. Watch for shade to move up and down slightly. (this step must be completed within a few seconds of plugging the battery wand back in)
  5. Remove remote battery cover from remote and locate P2 button to the left of battery. Press and release P2 button twice.
  6. Press “up” button on the front of the remote.
  7. Your shade is now successfully programmed to the remote.

 

How To Set The Top and Bottom Limits for Motor Window Shades

If your shade doesn’t come all the way down to the bottom of the window or if it continues to unfurl after reaching the sill, you may need to reset the top and bottom limits. Although your shade will be made to your exact window measurements, this programming technique will make sure that you get a perfect fit.

Follow these steps: 

  1. Raise shade all the way to the top by pressing the “up” button on the remote. 
  2. Unplug battery wand from shade for 3-5 seconds and plug back in.
  3. Remove remote battery cover and locate P2 button to the left of battery. Press and release P2 button. (this step must be completed within a few seconds of plugging the battery wand back in)
  4. Press and release “up” button on the front of the remote.
  5. Press and release P2 button.
  6. Press and hold center “stop” button on the front of the remote. Watch for shade to move up and down slightly.
  7. Press and release “down” button on remote and allow shade to come down.
  8. At the moment the shade reaches the desired stopping position (touching the sill), press and hold the center “stop” button. Watch for shade to move up and down slightly.
  9. Raise and lower shade to make sure that shade is stopping at desired position.

 

 

How to Reset Remote Control for Motorized Shades

If you need to start over in the programming process because you made a mistake, or if you are adding another shade to a remote, you need to clear the remote of all settings.

Follow these steps: 

  1. Raise shade all the way to the top by pressing the “up” button on the remote.
  2. Unplug battery wand from shade for 3-5 seconds and plug back in.
  3. Remove remote battery cover and locate P2 button to the left of battery. Press and release P2 button. Watch for shade to move up and down slightly. (this step must be completed within a few seconds of plugging the battery wand back in)
  4. Press and release center “stop” button.
  5. Press and hold P2 button until shade briefly moves up and down.
