Installing a hub

6.1

Connect the Hub to your home network router

utp connection

6.2

Connect the Hub to your power outlet

power connection

6.3

Check the range of the Hub

Your Hub should be able to reach each shade in the house.

Use your remote from the same location as your Hub to operate your shades. If some shades do not respond, add or relocate a repeater and check again.

6.4

Wait approximately 2 minutes and observe the Hub light.

  • Blue/Red blinking : All ok. Proceed with the installation.

  • Red blinking : Hub is downloading updates. Please wait. (approx. 5 mins.)

  • Continuous blue : Hub is already connected to a network. If you have previously setup your hub you can continue. If not you can clear the data on the hub. Goto Erase hub data in the Additional actions chapter.

Resetting a repeater

Locate the following button on your repeater:

Repeater

1.

Press the repeater button for approx 6 seconds until the green light starts to light up. Your repeater is now reset.

Add a repeater using the Remote

Installation of a repeater is necessary when your shade isn't responding to a command from your remote control.

IMPORTANT: Put the repeater at a strategic location. Preferably halfway between the unresponsive shade and the remote control location. Look here] for more info.

This instruction will make use of the following buttons on the Remote:

Adding a remote

Find the following button/light on the repeater.

Repeater

5.1

Assemble the repeater kit and plug it in an outlet

(The repeater light illuminates green )

repeater outlet

5.2

Press stop for 6 seconds.

(Keep pressing until the remote lights start blinking.)

5.3

Hold the remote within 20cm. from the repeater.

5.4

Press stop .

(The repeater light will turn off. The repeater is now part of your personal PowerView® Network.)

Add a repeater using the App

1.

Make sure your repeater is reset

2.

Open the app. Select blinds and discover shades.

3.

The repeater light should start blinking and finally end with the led switched off.

Repeater location

The range of any indoor wireless device is always difficult to determine. Factors like used building materials and presence of other wireless devices can have a big (negative) impact on wireless range. To improve the range of the PowerView® network repeaters can be used.

A repeater picks up any incoming wireless PowerView® signal and transmits it again at full power increasing the range of the signal being sent.

In practice finding the ideal location of a repeater is a bit of trial and error. But the below rules of thumb can be a good help:

repeater setup

  • Preferably don't use more than 6 repeaters.
  • Ideally locate your repeater halfway between your hub/remote and the blind.
  • The repeater should be in range of both hub/remote and blind. If required place a second repeater. Look here to check whether a repeater is part of the PowerView® network and picking up a signal.
  • There should be just enough overlap (see yellow parts in the image) in range between hub/remote and repeater:
  • Too much overlap will make the signals of hub, remote and repeater interfere and range extension is not optimal.
  • Too little or no overlap means the signal is not being received by the repeater.

In the image above the red blind is receiving a hub signal being repeated by the first repeater. The green blind is receiving a hub signal being repeated by the second repeater, which was being repeated by the first repeater.

Check whether a repeater is part of the PowerView® network

Locate the following button on your repeater:

Repeater

1.

Make sure you have a working remote.

2.

Control a blind by selecting a group and sending an open or close command.

3.

The repeater button/light should start blinking.

Pairing and Duplicating a remote

Out of the box each remote creates its own PowerView® network. In most cases however your remotes need to be on the same "network". Pairing remotes will be necessary. Consider the following scenario:

Out of the box you have two remotes. As soon as you add your shade to remote 1 they belong to the same PowerView® network and you can now control your blind with remote 1. As soon as you add your blind to remote 2 your shade moves to the network of remote 2. You can control the shade with remote 2, but not anymore with remote 1. Pairing remotes first would have solved this issue. Both remotes are part of the same PowerView® network. Both remote 1 and remote 2 would have functioned.

Duplicating a remote not only pairs the remotes to the same network, it also copies all group information from your source / old remote to the new remote. A duplicate remote will function exactly in the same way as your source remote.

Pairing a remote

Take two remotes. Name them original, target and follow the instructions below.

Locate the following buttons on your remote:

Performing an end limit calibration

An end limit calibration will recalibrate the end limits stored in the shade. The shade automatically searches its new end limits by moving up and down.

Note: This procedure is not applicable on EOS® 500 Rollerblind and Twist™ shades.

1.

Press the manual control button for approximately 6 seconds.

(Depending on the product the shade will start moving up and down several times defining new open and close positions)

Put Remote in sleep mode

Sleep mode will disable the motion sensor inside the remote. This will prevent the remote lights to turn on when motion is detected (like being picked up). Doing this will increase battery lifetime.

Press the group 6 button for approximately 6 seconds.

(The group buttons will flash as confirmation)
