the remote is ready for several motors, and also you can control with phone. hope that helps.
The charge on the battery is great, I've had my motor for over two months and I use it at least two times each day and the battery is still good. and when you do need to charge the motor its only one time, for any battery it is best to charge it fully and have it drain, if you keep an ongoing charge then it will just depend on the charger all the time. if you can hide the cord you can do so. but it is a good battery,
My understanding is that it is currently Bluetooth only. The manual for the remote states that it too operates on Bluetooth. The mobile app also uses Bluetooth, but currently it's very buggy.
It has to fit in the top with a gear hole that will accommodate the gear shaft on the motor. I don't think it will work with anything else unless it looks just like the shade for which it is made. This is the shade that came with my kit: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Home-Decorators-Collection-White-Blackout-Polyester-Cellular-Shade-31-in-W-x-72-in-L-Motorization-Compatible-10793478875573/309930881
It does not show you can, you can either control with phone or control. best option is to call an associate at Home Depot.
I agree I can't find any thing about a solar panel and my windows are 20' in the air. I'm not running a cord up there
on the motorized unit (not on the shade) you'll see a light indicating that the charging cable is properly plugged in and that the motor is charging.
Nope. I’m usually skeptical of technology that will has “outdated-ness” built into it. Bluetooth?...what year are we stuck in. I get you need Bluetooth for set it up but come on! The market that is buying this technology is ready for the integration into the home network. Come on HD get up to speed. One of the other blind companies will take over this niche and we will be left with Bluetooth junk circa 2000.
SIV...I can't answer your specific questions, but I will share with you that I nearly threw my Android phone across the room several times while trying to get the APP to control six blinds. My opinion is that the APP isn't really for prime-time yet. The APP is based on Bluetooth, so in theory you should be able to configure two phones to control the blinds. However, I would think that each blind can only be connected to one bluetooth device at a time. That said, if both phones are in the same space and have bluetooth enabled....I would bet your in for a world of frustration. I also have the wireless remote option, which I've found works fairly well, 90% of the time.
No, I don't think so. It's designed to snap in to the main housing of the blinds and to match up the motor shaft with the mechanism that's built into the blinds.
