Setting up your Gear is simple and easy to do with the mobile app. Configuration is the process of naming and organizing your Gear, but more importantly, is where you set the fully opened and closed position of your shade for optimal control and performance.
Before you begin this process, make sure your Gear has been properly installed and is ready to go.
1. Pair Gear
Click the physical PAIR button on your device to sync it with your phone or tablet. Make sure Bluetooth is enabled on your phone or tablet.
2. Click the GEAR UP device to complete pairing
You Gear will show up with the words "GEAR UP" as well as it's own unique identification number. This number is always 11 characters in length and will be a combination of numbers and letters.
3. Choose the location of your Gear.
There are a variety of options available, as well as the option to customize the room name to your own liking.
3. Select your window covering.
Simply tap the type of shade, blind or curtain you have installed Gear onto. If you don’t see your exact window covering, simply select the option that is closest to the one you own.
4. Select your mount type.
Let Gear know how you installed it by selecting the mount type that most closely reflects how your Gear has been installed.
5. Make Sure Gear is Going the Right Way.
This next screen will make sure your Gear is going in the right way you want it to. Tap the up and down arrows while watching your Gear to ensure that when you tap the up button your shade does, in fact, open the shade or curtain. If your shade closes when you tap the up button, simply select the checkbox below the arrow buttons that says “Reverse Directions”. You can now play with the arrow buttons again to make sure everything is working how you want it to. Tap next.
6. Set the Fully Closed and Opened Positions
Using the arrow buttons, you can set the fully closed and opened positions of your window shade.
To begin, tap and hold the down button until Gear has reached the fully-opened position of your window shade. Once it is set to where you want it, tap next.
Tap and hold the up button until Gear is in the fully-closed position. Once it is exactly where you want it, tap next.
Your Gear is now setup and ready for use!
