Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Curtain rails: Can the curtain rail be ceiling mounted?
Yes - by using angled ceiling fittings or flat ceiling fittings.
Curtain rails: What is the maximum length of the curtain rail?
3 metres is maximum - but it is possible to combine more rails, e.g. 2 rails of 2 metres drawing in each their direction and thus achieve a total of 4 metres.
Curtain rails: Can I use my existing curtains?
Yes - it might be necessary to adapt their length if the automatic curtain rail is mounted at another height of the previous rail.
Curtain rails: Will the curtains be closed when the sun shines at them?
No - the curtains will be opened and closed at the times for sunrise and sunset, but can be individually programmed to other time patterns. Our models "Comfort" and "de Luxe" have built-in temperature control and closes the curtains if it gets too hot in a room.
Curtain rails: Can the curtain rails be connected to other systems like intelligent home control?
Yes - the models COMFORT, C-IHC and roller blinds. Please request that when ordering. C-IHC is exclusively for intelligent home control.
Curtain rails: Are there any remote controls for the system?
Yes for some of the types: De Luxe, COMFORT, Light Remote and roller blind system. This must be ordered separately for all curtain rails except from the roller blind system.
Curtain rails: How long do the batteries last?
Between 3 and 12 months depending on the length of the curtain rails and the weight of the curtain fabric by use of Duracell Alkaline batteries. This applies for the Classic model when used without power supply.
Curtain rails: Which finish do the curtain rails have
Model Comfort and Classic are available in high gloss white RAL 9010 (powder coated) and silk matt anodized (with grey fittings). The de Luxe series is available in gold, silver and black. Other colours can be delivered on request.
Curtain rails: Why does my curtain rail suddenly not draw the curtains automatically?
Check whether the curtain rail has been set to "manual ON", "holiday ON" - it must be st to "manual OFF" and "holiday OFF".
Curtain rails: Why does my curtain rail not close/open the curtains at the right time?
Try to set date and time again.
Curtain rails: May I paint the antenna?
Yes - just not with metal colours.
Curtain rails: What is the accuracy of the clock in the rail?
The accuracy of the clock is 19 min./year at 25 °C
Curtain rails: Can the curtain rail be controlled by wireless intelligent home control (IHC)?
The curtain rail cannot receive signals directly from IHC wireless. This is mainly because the curtain rails are receiving at another frequency than IHC. There are 3 solutions for use of IHC wireless:
  1. IHC wireless module sends signal to the controller, which then sends the signal via wires to the curtain rail (see drawing under curtain rail model C-IHC)
  2. IHC wireless module sends signal to the controller, which then sends a signal via wires to a module (EMML), which can be placed close to the IHC controller. This module then sends wireless to the curtain rails. The module can be bought from ODSIF on request.
  3. IHC wireless module sends signal to a wireless receiver module, which via another module or relay sends signal via wires to the curtain rails.
Curtain rails: How does the temperature control work?
The temperature control is built-in in the models Comfort and de Luxe.
The temperature control is not active from the time, the curtains are closed in the evening until they are opened in the morning again.
When the curtains have been opened in the morning, the temperature control becomes active. If the temperature exceeds the upper limit (pre-set to 28 °C from ODSIF, but may be changed to another value by means of the buttons and display), then the curtains will be closed. If or when the temperature gets below the lower limit (pre-set to 21 °C from ODSIF, but may be changed to another value by means of the buttons and display), then the curtains will be opened.
Curtain rails: How accurate is the temperature measurement in the curtain rails?
The temperature control is built-in in the models Comfort and de Luxe.
The accuracy is within one degree, i.e. +/- one degree Celsius.
Roller blinds: Why does the roller blind only turn one quarter of a revolution at a time?
The roller blind system does not work until the tube, which the curtains has been rolled onto, has been mounted. There is a sensor in the system that makes the motor only turn on quarter of a revolution at a time, if the tube has not been mounted.
LED lamps: Is it possible to change/replace the wire to the lamps?
Only ODSIF may change/replace the wires. If the wire must be changed/replaced, please contact ODSIF. We can do that at a very fair price.
LED strips: What happens when the voltage comes reverse in on the strips?
The LED strips will not turn on. They will not be damaged by getting the voltage reverse in on them. If you by accident have reversed the voltage to the strips, just reverse it again and they will turn on as supposed.
LED strips: Is it possible to extend the wire from the LED transformer to the LED strips?
Yes, normally it is possible to extend the wire by up to 10 metres without affecting the light from the LED strips (this applies by use of normally 0.75 mm2 flat or round 230V wire). If the wire should be extended beyond the 10 metres, please consult ODSIF.
