The multi-channel remote can be used to operate individual or groups of shades. Each button can be programmed on the remote to correspond to a single shade or select group of shades to be operated simultaneously.

Simplicity motors have a “Favorites” position setting. To set a “Favorites” position, follow instructions provided in the installation.

When the battery life is fading, the shade will begin to move at half speed – this is an indication to charge the battery.

It is possible other Wi-Fi devices such as wireless doorbells, baby monitors or wireless weather stations utilizing the same frequency could interfere with shade operation.

Because each motor functions independently, it is possible that identical shades will operate at different speeds. Shade speed is reliant on several factors such as battery life and charge strength, the battery type and the friction within the shade

It is not recommended to operate the shade manually. To avoid possible damage, please contact customer service for any shade that is not functioning properly.

Recharging time is approximately 5 hours for fully depleted batteries. The battery can be recharged up to 500 times.

The Solar Panel provides a constant trickle charge to the rechargeable battery. It does not require direct sunlight, but performs best in regular direct sunlight applications. It will prolong the life of the charge and in some applications will maintain charge indefinitely. The life of the charge is subject to application variables such as, size and weight of shade, frequency of use, amount of direct sunlight exposure, etc.
