This guide focusses on the Ease blinds which are part of the HomeMaticIP system. For more information on the HomeMaticIP system in general go to the following links:

Control a shade from the app

Use the app to operate (open, close, stop) a blind.

After selecting the up or down button a stop button appears

To have more detailed control over a shade select the area next to the control buttons.

Sliders allow for detailed control

Automate shade movement

Blind automations like time and solar schedules are stored inside the blind so a schedule will always execute as long as the blind has power.

To activate blinds at a specific time (or at sunrise/sunset) they need to be put in a time profile.

Some things to keep in mind when creating time profiles:

  • You can group together multiple shades in one time profile. But only group them when they are supposed to have exactly the same schedules.
  • It is preferred to put shades of different height in different time profiles.
  • You will keep maximum flexibility when you put each shade in a separate time profile. But it will take the most effort managing it.

Add Blockage (lockout) protection

Use a door sensor to detect whether a door/window is open and prevent a shade from running into the open window or being locked outside.

Make sure the sensor is powered up and have the corresponding QR code sticker available.
