FAQ & troubleshoot smart blinds


  • 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.

  • There can be a small delay as the remote ‘communicates’ with the Zigbee repeater and then the blind itself.

  • You can pull the blind down manually and then recharge the battery so that you can raise it again.


  • The repeater is a necessary part to help operate the blind (it will not work otherwise). It helps the blind and the remote control to communicate. It is needed for proper wireless function.

  • With normal usage (up and down once a day), a fully charged battery should last 4 to 6 months before needing to be recharged. As with any battery, the ability to hold a charge will gradually reduce over time.

  • Around 4-5 hours with the IKEA charger.

  • No, but you can use them in all other indoor areas of the home.

  • No, but FYRTUR smart blinds are available in several different width sizes – 23 inches, 27 inches, 30 inches, 32 inches, 34 inches, 36 inches, 38 inches, and 48 inches.

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