Troubleshoot iBlinds Z-wave Plus Controller

These instructions are valid as of March 25, 2018. As always, it is recommended that you contact the manufacturer to address problems. I can’t promise that these instructions will stay up to date since the manufacturer can change firmware at any time without my knowledge.

Pairing Problems

The biggest problem you will face is pressing the INC/EXC button too many times. You only need to press the button ONCE during pairing.

If you pressed more than once, or can’t seem to get the unit to pair:

  • The the battery switch off – wait 15 seconds
  • Turn the batter switch on – wait 60 seconds
  • Press the INC / EXC button 3 times – listen for a click
  • Wait 30 seconds
  • Press the CLEAR button
  • If you don’t hear a Click, Press the clear button again

If the process doesn’t work, repeat and try again.

Auto-calibration Wont Run

Don’t press any buttons while the unit is in auto-calibration mode, you will muck up the calibration.

SmartThings – Before doing anything, make sure you have the Device Handler loaded. Once the device handler is loaded, press the control button and wait. The unit should perform the auto-calibration.

Vera & Wink – A few times I found it necessary to help the auto-calibration along. After you pair your device, wait for at least 2 minutes. If the iBlinds controller doesn’t automatically go into auto-calibration, press a control button and wait. The unit should begin auto-calibration mode.
