Is the E Wand compatible with my existing blinds?
Yes! The E Wand is fully compatible will all venetian blinds, mini-blinds, and wand tilted vertical blinds. Unfortunately, at this time the E Wand is not compatible with vertical blinds that use a rope or chain to tilt the slats. If you would like to verify your blind's compatibility, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My venetian blinds are tilted using a cord. Can I still use the E Wand?
Yes! For homes with corded tilt horizontal blinds, we offer a universal conversion kit with adapters to fit any venetian blinds on the market. Converting a cord tilt blind to a wand tilt is a very straightforward process that is outlined in the Installation Manual and User Guide and in the Instructional Videos located here. For the best operation of the E Wand, we highly recommend using our universal conversion kit over the several offered through third party sellers, as the tilt stem is usually positioned differently.
How do I install the E Wand?

Why won't my blinds open back up after they automatically close?
The automation functions of the E Wand are controlled through a sliding sensor switch. The top switch controls the light sensor and the bottom switch controls the temperature sensor. When the switches are in the top position, they are off. When the switches are positioned in the middle, they are set to fully automatic, meaning the E Wand will both close and open your blind slats. When the switch is in the lowest position, the E Wand is set to semi-automatic, meaning it will only close your blinds, allowing you to manually open them to meet your needs. If you would like your blinds to open automatically as well as close, simply move the sensor switch to the fully automatic (middle) position. Still having trouble?

Why aren't my blinds closing at sunset?
a. After a manual movement has been made, by either twisting the E Wand Twist Handle or by using the remote, a timer is set. This timer prevents the E Wand from making any automated movements for three hours after the manual movement.
How much energy am I actually saving by having my E Wand set to fully automatic?
Windows play a large part in the efficiency of a home. It is recommended that to save energy, homeowners close their blinds when it is warm outside to reduce heat infiltration into the home. During winter months, when daytime temperatures are low, it is recommended that homeowners open their blinds to allow in residual heat from the sun. It is reported that the typical home will cut between 10-15% of their annual energy usage by closing the blinds or curtains during high temperatures, and opening them during daytime cool temperatures. The automated features controlled by light and temperature sensors on the E Wand use this knowledge to reduce the homes energy consumption by automating slat movement.
How can I tell if I need to change the batteries?
When the E Wand has low batteries, it will play a short tune when twisted. Be sure to replace your batteries with 1.5v AA Alkaline batteries. For instructions on how to change the batteries in your E Wand, view our Installation Manual and Instructional Videos here.
How long are the batteries going to last?
Batteries in the E Wand last approximately a year under normal use.
