Blinds configuration wizard
Blinds configuration wizard helps installer to correctly set the blinds timing. When the parameters are not set correctly, usually blinds are moving during long time operation to one side - either top or down position.
To start wizard go to blinds service settings and use START WIZARD button:
Please note that wizard will modify the blinds parameters during his operation.
Also it will temporary disable initial calibration, if enabled, to not wait for this during parameters change.
Starting wizard will display following page:
As described here it is necessary to start with calibration of motor starting time. When this is not done correctly than other parameters will be not possible to calibrate correctly.
Calibrate duration until motor starts moving
In first step ensure that blinds are completely up. Either click on MOVE UP to move the blind 1 second up, or hold this button to move the blind until the button is released.
Click on next when blind is up.
The blind will now move down 10 seconds. Wait for it to stop and mark the blind position.
When you are ready check marked position and click on next.
Blind will move up again.
When blind stops check completely up and click on next.
Now blind is moving down 10 seconds - but in 20 steps. Progress is displayed:
When it finish compare the previously marked position.
After comparison check mark and click on next.
Now there is time to adjust the start up time according to what was observed.
As described in the dialog - increase start duration if motor did not reach the mark, decrease if mark was exceeded.
Please use small steps - like change 5ms or 10ms to preciously set this parameter.
Click on repeat if you decide to change the parameter or if you want to check again if set parameter is correct.
Repeat steps until you are very close to firstly marked position.
When correctly set click on finish.
Calibrate level duration time
Again in first step ensure that the blind is completely up.
Click on next to follow with next step.
There are three possibility how to move the blind.
Click on MOVE 10 SECONDS if it is sure, that blind is more than 10 seconds from down.
Please note that it is not problem if the blind stops during this settings. We previously set correctly start up time - so this will not affect the blind final position if you make less than 20 steps as in first calibration.
Click on the MOVE 1 SECOND until blind is close to down. Adjust the blind position with 0.1 of seconds to reach the bottom.
When you use blinds with self logic which stops moving it when it reach bottom position, than it is very helpful if you can listen to the control relays of TapHome device. Only when control relays close, but blind is not moving, than the time should be lowered.
Click on next when blind is in bottom position. Click cancel if you make some mistake and you do not want to use the level down moving time.
In next step use the same procedure as in Step 2 - just the blind is moving up.
Please note that usually moving up need little bit higher time.
Click on Finish when blind is in top position and the time is correct. Click cancel if you want to return without saving changes.
Calibrate angle duration time
In this step the duration of angle complete change will be calibrated.
First again ensure that the blind is in top position.
After you click next the page with choosing position for angle calibration will be displayed.
MOVE CLOSE TO TOP will move the blind to 20% of level time or 5 seconds - what's ever is smaller.
MOVE CLOSE TO BOTTOM will move the blind to 80% of level time or 5 seconds from bottom - what's ever is smaller.
MOVE DOWN will enable to adjust the position manually. Every click will move the blind 1 second down.
If the position is suitable for angle calibration click on Next. If you missed the ideal position click back and start from step 1.
After clicking on next the angle time adjusting page is displayed.
In this page you can test the angle change duration time as many time as it is necessary.
First click on TEST ANGLE - this will run single angle change. Adjust the times until the blind is completely open - but it is not moving up.
Please adjust first both times to same values. Only after repeat test it is may be necessary to adjust up/down to different times.
After finishing single angle time adjustment mark the blind position and use REPEAT ANGLE TEST to find out if the blind is not moving down/up during many angle changes.
Do not forget to mark new position before you repeat test again, if the blind position was changed.
Click Finish if the parameters are correct. Click cancel if the parameters should not be saved.
