Add-A-Motor Model 800RC Remote Controlled Vertical Blind and Drapery Motor
- Product Information
The drapery motor is compact and incredibly simple to install and operate for even the amateur do-it-yourself installer. Just remove the cord pully from your drapery or vertical blind then attach the Model 80 to the existing cord loop. No cutting or pro installer required.
Operation is simple. Simply cApply power and it moves to the limit position. Disconnect power and re-apply and it moves back to the opposite limit.
Automating your blinds or drapery enhances security by giving the home a lived-in look even when you're away. Closing blinds can dramatically reduce heating and cooling bills and prevent fading of floors, carpets and furnishings.
ROTATING VERTICAL BLINDS
Attach motor to existing chain loop. Chain connector can pass through motor without damage. Motor adjustment dials permit you to set two automatic stop positions: open, closed, in-between. If your chain does not have an existing loop, please call us and we will explain a simply option.
TRAVERSING AND ROTATING THE SAME VERTICAL BLINDS
To traverse and rotate the same vertical blind requires two (2) Model 80 motors. Please note that a standard wall outlet has polarized plug receptacles and cannot accept two motors. A solution is to use your own extension cord and simply plug both motors into the cord outlets.
One-way traverse, the motor has a max distance of about 10 feet. Example id your blinds are 15' the motors max travel distance is 10 feet so our motor would not be able to open your blinds all the way.
Center traverse, then the distance is generally 50% less. Example 15' blinds would only need to travel a distance of 7 1/2' which is well under our max distance.
