I have two Ikea Fyrtur blinds that I've been struggling with for a long time. I bought them about a year ago and was unable to pair them with my v1 SmartThings hub. Based on the ST community advice, they thought it wasn't compatible with a v1 hub. Fast forward to 2020, and I now have a C5 Hubitat hub that I'm working with, and I've loaded @a4refillpad's driver.
The HE hub was able to pair the repeaters fine (as far as I can tell - they show up as devices, at least*). I haven't bothered with the remote.
I've reset the blinds by holding the top & bottom buttons for 5 seconds and tried to pair a new zigbee device immediately after. Nothing happens.
I've short-pressed the top & bottom buttons to initiate pairing mode on the blinds for 2 minutes and tried to pair a new zigbee device on the hub. Nothing happens.
In both cases, the 60 second pairing timer runs out, and the devices never show up.
The blinds and the hub are separated by about 20 feet at most.
What am I doing wrong? Is there some voodoo to get these to pair to the hub?
I suppose it's possible I got two bum/defective blinds, but that seems unlikely. I'm also waaay outside the return window.
- Actually, I'm not sure the repeaters paired correctly, either. They initially paired, and I set them to Ikea TRADFRI repeater devices. But they last checked in ~15 days ago (which was about 30 days after they were paired - so they worked for a while before dropping off the mesh), and hitting the two buttons for getLinkQuality and getRouteTable do nothing.
