Best Remote for Ikea Blinds?

Hey everyone

I have successfully paired my Ikea blinds to HU - and I understand that I cannot use the Ikea remote that came with the blind.

Any suggestions on a remote to use with my blinds?

Are they blinds or shades?

I am using Picos on my Graber shades. I use the 5 buttons (top to bottom) for:
Top (button #1) = Open shade all the way
Up (button #2) = Open/close shade to 75% open
Favorite/round (button #3) = Open/close shade to halfway open/closed
Down (button #4) = Open/close shade to 25% open
Off (button #5) = Close shade all the way

I haven't (yet) done anything with double-tap or press-hold on the Picos. We're just getting used to having shades - we got the first one last fall.

With blinds you need a different set of options.

I'll check that out. Do you have a link to them? Do I need a separate hub or will they connect directly to HU?

No, you need a separate hub (Lutron Caseta Pro) for the Pico remotes.

Some people get that hub just to be able to use the Pico remotes but that is kind of an expensive option as the hub is almost $US 100.00. I also use Lutron Caseta for all my lighting controls so it was sort of a "no brainer" for me.

Here's a link: https://www.casetawireless.com/products/pico-remotes

So I would connect the hub to HU (like with my HUE hub) and control my hue bulbs, ikea blinds, all via Lutron?

Do you know of any options that connect directly to HU?

I use Philips Hue Dimmer switches/controllers directly connected to HE

1 = All the way up
4 = All the way down
2 + 3 = Set the level up or down

We had a thread going recently (within the last 90 days) about various button controllers - it generated quite a number of comments and suggestions. You might search for that. I will take a stab at finding it too . . .

Awesome. Thanks for this.

I did attempt to find a solution. Sorry about that.

Hey Andy
So this is the remote that is actually meant for their lights?

With the On / Off and 2 brightness buttons?

Yes, I just use it for other things :slight_smile:
You don't say where you are but in the UK they are less than £20 on amazon

I use tiny blobs of BlueTac to stick the plates on the wall so I can re position whenever I want
