        If you prefer the hard copy, just follow the assembly instructions included in the package.

        Keep in mind that once you have installed the IKEA Home smart app, you can follow the steps as indicated in the IKEA app.

      • With remote control

        No. If you follow the instructions, you can install them on your own.

        Used singularly, the blind is ready to be used. If you want to group several together, you need to pair them.

        When you use a singular and already paired blind, plug in the repeater, insert the battery into the remote control and then mount the blind.

        We recommend performing the pairing before mounting the blinds to the wall or ceiling. It’s ideal to place the blinds on a table when pairing.

        The blind comes with 1 BRAUNIT rechargeable battery pack. The battery pack is pre-charged and ready to use.

        With IKEA Home smart app

        No. If you follow the instructions, you can install them on your own.

        Plug in the repeater, insert the battery into the remote control, connect the blind to TRÅDFRI gateway, download the IKEA app and mount the blind.

        If you want to steer multiple blinds at the same time, we recommend performing the setting/pairing before mounting the blinds to the wall or ceiling. It’s ideal to place the blinds on a table when pairing.

        The blind comes with 1 BRAUNIT rechargeable battery pack. The battery pack is pre-charged and ready to use.

      Control and steering

      With remote control

      • With a remote control. 1 single remote control (once paired to multiple blinds) can steer up to 10 blinds.

      • Yes, follow these steps to pair additional blinds.

        1. Open the back cover of the open/close remote and find the pairing button.
        2. Short press on both buttons on the blind. The device is now awake and ready to pair for 2 minutes.
        3. Hold the open/close remote very close to the wireless roller blind that you want to add (no more than 5cm away from the blinds' battery lid).
        4. Press and hold the pairing button for at least 10 seconds on the wireless open/close remote.
        5. A red light will shine steadily on the open/close remote. On your wireless roller blind, a white light will begin to dim and flash until the devices are paired successfully.

        You can pair up to 10 blinds. Please note that, if you have more than one blind, they might go up and down at slightly different speeds but this is normal. 

        • With 1 short press on the remote – the blinds will go up or down continuously.

          Press once again to stop. Do not double-click or click the remote repeatedly, as this can send multiple signals/commands to the blinds.

        • The remote control can steer the blinds from a distance of 32 feet.

        • Yes, you can attach it using the sticky pads on the remote control’s holder. Alternatively, you can attach the holder with screws.

        With IKEA Home smart app

        • The pre-set functions in the IKEA Home smart app can create the same settings from one day to the next. 

        • Using the TRÅDFRI gateway and IKEA Home smart app, you can control the blinds from anywhere as long as you are connected to the same WiFi as the gateway. Some app/HomeKit suppliers offer steering away from home. 

        Pairing

        With remote control

        • Each individual blind is already paired.  To steer 1 single blind with the remote control, you don’t need to pair.

          • Inside the battery compartment of the remote control.

          With IKEA Home smart app

          • Yes, follow the link the product information page for more information.

          • Yes, via the IKEA Home smart app.

          Maximum length drop

          • With remote control

            Move each blind to the desired position using the remote control or buttons on the blind. When the blind is in the desired position, you can double-press the up or down button on the blind to save this position as the new maximum level of extension.

              With IKEA Home smart app

              On the blind, press both buttons together for more than 5 seconds.

            Batteries and recharge

            • The blind comes with the recharged battery pack. After usage, it takes around 4-5 hours to recharge the battery pack with the IKEA charger. 

            • With an average usage of up and down once per day, a fully charged battery should last 4 to 6 months before needing a recharge.

              As with any battery, the ability to retain charging power will gradually reduce over time.

            • With an average usage of up and down once per day, the remote battery should last 2 years.

              As with any battery, the ability to retain charging power will gradually reduce over time.

            • You can gently pull FYRTUR down by hand. If you want to make the blind go up, you need to recharge the battery pack for a minimum time in order to steer the blind.

              We recommend avoiding draining the battery pack or the remote control battery so as not to lose the connection to the remote control.

            • The LED on the blind flashes.

            Factory reset

            • On the blind, press both buttons together for more than 5 seconds.

              • Press the pairing button on the remote control 4 times.

                • When you want to add more blinds to a group.

                Limited warranty

                • Yes, we have a 5-year limited warranty, which covers full functionality of the blinds, meaning normal domestic use and provided that you follow the care instructions.

                  The blinds should still work as new, even after 5 years. Here we define normal use as the blinds going up and down once per day.

                • No, and using them in these areas could void your limited warranty. However, you can use them in all other indoor areas of the home. 

                • No, but FYRTUR smart blinds are available in different sizes. Please note that any modifications to the product could void your limited warranty.

                About the repeater

                • With remote control

                  The signal repeater is a necessary part to help control the blind (it will not work otherwise). It helps the blind and the remote control to communicate.

                  It is also needed if you want to steer your Smart blind via an app.

                Troubleshooting for Smart blinds


                My FYRTUR roller blind is not working, what should I do?

                After plugging in the signal repeater for the first time, it may take a couple of minutes for all the electronic parts to start communicating together. This is the same if it is unplugged or if there is a power shortage.

                If delays persist, the blind is not moving, and the remote control does not respond, try the 3 steps below to solve the problem:

                Step 1 – Charging and installation.

                Step 2 - Resetting.

                Step 3 - Pairing.

                Step 1 - Charging and installation


                Check if the battery in the blind and in the remote is fully charged and working. Charge or exchange if needed. Make sure the batteries and all components are installed correctly.

                1. Plug in the signal repeater.
                2. Install the charged battery in the blind.
                3. Install/exchange the charged battery in the remote control.
                4. Check the remote control function.
                5. Press the down button to make the blind go down.

                Note - if the remote control function is not working, the blind may have lost its connection. If the blind is still not working after step 1, proceed to step 2 and 3.

                Step 2 - Resetting


                Make sure to reset the remote control, the signal repeater and the blind according to the information below.

                1. Press and hold both buttons for 5 seconds.
                2. A white LED light will flash 4 times, indicating that the blind has been reset.

                Step 3 - Pairing (A and B)


                Make sure to successfully pair the remote control, the signal repeater and the blind according to the information below.

                A. The signal repeater must be paired first

                Place the remote control close to the signal repeater. Press the pairing button on the remote control until the red light flashes and is then steady again. It will take around 10 seconds. A white light will begin to dim and flash one time to indicate that it has been successfully paired.

                B. Pairing the remote control and blind

                • Quick press on both buttons on the blind. This will wake up the device and make it ready for pairing for 2 minutes.
                • Hold the remote close to the wireless blind you want to add, and no more than 2 inches away from the blind.
                • Press and hold the pairing button on the remote for at least 10 seconds.
                • A red LED light will shine on the remote. On your wireless blind, a white LED light will begin to dim and flash until the devices have been successfully paired.

                After going through these 3 steps, you will most probably be able to control and operate your blind again. If your blind is still not working, please try again to reset and perform the pairing.
