awesome valueJudy R.delivered quick and installation was a snap
Consider them disposableRoger R.As other reviews indicate: These don't last very long. The motors or receivers die after about a year. None that I've bought have lasted much longer than a year, I'm on my way back for a third time to exchange yet another set that has died.
1/6 failed after just over a year. Software is iffy. No spare parts.Yuri B.These blinds aren't cheap, they are also not very expensive in the world of home automation, and it's achieved with shortcuts: Software wise the app is iffy at best, besides an awful pairing procedures, the timer at times fail (unclear why despite troubleshooting), and it only works if you are on your home WiFi. Hardware wise: it's a solid value, but blinds either don't fully cover the window so plenty of lights gets through each edge or the motor bar don't fit inside the window frame widthwise, as there is a couple extra inches on each side of bumpouts, overtime the fabric overtime starts deforming (especially on the sunny side) and there are no replacements, finally 1 of 6 blinds the stepper motor just died despite exactly same duty cycle as the rest. Feels like IKEA got into the business of making e-waste, certainly not making an effort to give these blinds a long life. Speaking of long life the battery does last many months between charges.
They r wonderful keep the hot heat out they are really safe if u have little babies or kidsLETICIA C.When u want to open it it rolled slowly is really safe
Great smart blindsAlexis C.Overall a great product. Easy to install and operate. Have only 2 issues - needs more color/shade options and the SmartHub and IKEA Smart Hub app only work while connected to the same WiFi on your phone, requires a third party app like Alexa to control while you are out of the home.
only work with remote or hub not both at the same timearpit t.this is the most stupid smart blind I have seen it can only work with remote or hub at 1 time if you program them both it will not work so it is not smart blind its a stupid blind
Died just after warrantySCOTT C.Annoying to set up but functional once they worked. Unfortunately, died after only 12 months but just outside of warranty. Do not buy.
Awesome blindsJoel C.Once you review the instructions, the setup was a breeze. Very functional.
Love these blindsDon T.These Fyrtur automatic blinds work very well and super simple to install. The app and smart integration also work very well. I’ve decided to switch out all of my window blinds to these ASAP.
Was on sale.AshotWas on sale.
It would be nice toAishwaryaIt would be nice to have basic colour choices. We needed white but had to adjust with grey
Great ValueDanI love these blinds. Installed 4 in my bedroom. Very simple to program and they work very consistently. Only issue I had was one of the blinds didn't work when I brought it home and I had to exchange for another one.
Works greatMARIOIt works great but since there is only one battery and it had to be removed to charge it lost a star
Good buy for the price but could be smarterRajeshI purchased two of these shades to install on side-by-side windows. The installation was relatively easy, but it would have been better if there were some instructions on placement of mounting brackets.
I did an outside install because the shades were too wide to fit inside the window casing. This causes a gap when the shades are closed so it's not a true blackout shade for me, since there is about a 2-inch deep gap on either side between the shade and window.
Setting the max height was a bit of trial and error and matching the height on both shades took a bit of work. There were no instructions included to link both shades to one remote, but I found instructions for it online. The repeater needs to be plugged-in for the remotes to work.
Making the shades SMART involved pairing the shades to the Dirigera Hub. The app walks through the process of pairing the shades to the Hub one at a time. But by doing so, it reset the shades and lost the original link to the remote, so I had to pair the remote to the Hub in order to operate it via the remote, none of this is mentioned in the instructions, so I had to search for this online as well. Once paired with the hub, the remote no longer needs the repeater.
Once setup, I could control the shades as a group via the remote or via the app. I also programed opening and closing times for the shades based on sunrise and sunset times and it's very convenient to have this happen automatically.
One bit of annoyance is that the speed at which the two shades operate is different. One of them is a bit quicker than the other even though I made sure to charge both batteries fully before installing them in the shades.
Overall, these are well made shades and good value for the price.
I expected these to workAferditaVery unhappy and returned all 4
Very nice and easy toPrusinowskiVery nice and easy to install.
Great conceptRyanGetting these installed were really easy. Getting them to work and pair was a different story. The 1st one paired easily, put getting the 2nd one was a nightmare. I got the IKEA smart hub and finally was able to get them working. It took me about an hour in total to get them set up.
I love it!AdrianEasy to install (with the proper tools of course). The good thing is that IKEA sells all the tools to install this so you don't have to go looking around at a hardware store.
I love how it does not require wifi or the Hub to work. I did buy an extra battery that is charged up and ready to go when one dies.
Great blind!BrettThese blinds are very easy to set up and use. They integrate easily with Alexa and their neutral color makes decorating easier. I took away one star because you can only use the app to control them when connected to your home wifi. There is no web connection to operate them when away. This needs to be added.
Awful FabricMason S.I’ve unfortunately had to go through two sets of these blinds. The first set the metal rod at the bottom came undone on one of the blinds, happened about 6 months in. The second set the automatic roller went out on the one window and then the fabric started to fray and have strange indents. So I returned them and got the white accordion style and they’re much better. The only reason it gets two stars is because it is in fact black out shaders and customer service was always extremely helpful.
