  • Short press the key once then the motor turns positively, the blue light flashes once;
  • Short press the key once then the motor stops, the blue light flashes once;
  • Short press the key once then the motor reverses, blue light flashes once;
  • Short press the key once then the motor stops, the blue light flashes once.


Secretly, there are two ways to get the motor locking function, so check it out!

Motor Locking Function Method 1

Switching operation

  • Long press for 2 seconds to lock, and the green light will stay constantly on, locking it to the upper limit tightly position; the green light goes out;
  • Long press for 2 seconds to stop, the green light goes out;
  • Long press for 2 seconds to release, and the green light will stay constantly on, release to the Lower limit position, and the green light goes out;
  • Long press for 2 seconds to stop, and the green light goes out.

Motor Locking Function Method 2

For remote control and motor pairing, please refer to the following manuals.

Attention, the following is very necessary, be sure to follow the instructions to apply!

Motor Application Notes

Please pay attention to the following matters when using on the Roman rod:

Rome rod configuration
1. The motor is only suitable for use on curtain poles with a diameter less than or equal to 32mm and greater than or equal to 20mm (as shown in Fig. a).
2. In the case of curtain applications with perforated rings for Rome rods, please be sure to use the supplied spacer bead cords and clips connected at intervals (as shown in Fig. b).

Please pay attention to the following matters when used on the square track:

Square track configuration
1. The motor only applies to the height between the bottom surface of the track and the Hanging wheel is less than 24mm (as shown in Fig.1).
2. The motor only applies to the track opening greater than or equal to 6.5mm and less than or equal to 8mm (as shown in Fig. 2).
3. The motor only applies to the track opening if the bottom surface of the track is flat if there is a curved surface opening of the track, the curved surface is not greater than 10mm (as shown in Fig. 3).

Please pay attention to the following matters when used on the curved track:

Curved track configuration


1. The motor only applies to the height between the bottom surface of the track and the Hanging wheel is less than 24mm (as shown in Fig. A).
2. The motor is only applicable to the bottom surface of the track is greater than or equal
to 10mm (as shown in Fig. B).

Then, here’s your main concern, which is how to install curtain robots on different curtain tracks!

Installation Steps

Rome rod installation steps

Fasten the Rome rod fittings to the Rome rod (The fittings are installed between the first and second rings of the curtain fabric)
Hang the motor on
the lifting ring
Long press and hold the button for 2 seconds and then release it to let the motor slowly rise
and lock with the track

Square track installation steps

Fasten the limit buckle fitting on to the motor
Hang the motor on the
first and second Hanging
wheel of the curtain
Long press and hold the button for 2 seconds and then release it to let the motor slowly rise
and lock with the track

Curved track installation steps

Hang the motor on the first and second
Hanging wheel of the curtain
Long press and hold the button for 2 seconds
and then release it to let the motor slowly rise
and lock with the track

With the above step-by-step installation instructions combined with this detailed tutorial video, I’m sure you’ll be able to do it easily!

Smart Curtain Robot Video

After a general understanding of ZM86EL smart curtain robots, you should be eager to know how to control them, right? Here’s how to control the curtain robots by remote control.

Remote Control and Network Setting Manual

These operations only work for the remote control within the effective control distance, and the motor is in the power-on state, otherwise it doesn’t work.

Please finish this process within 5 seconds, otherwise it will exit the setting due to overtime.


First, run the motor to the limit position you want to set and pause, then perform the following operations. If the motor has travel limit already, you need to clear the original travel before resetting it.

Open and close limits must be set first, in order to using the percentage control function.


Open limit setting

Please finish this process within 5 seconds, otherwise it will exit the setting due to overtime.


Close limit setting

Please finish this process within 5 seconds, otherwise it will exit the setting due to overtime.


Delete the remote current channel from motor


Delete current remote from the motor

To cancel the connection between the motor and current remote all channels.


Delete all remote from the motor

To cancel the connection between the motor and all remote controls.

Long press the motor’s “Set key” until the motor makes a sound “Di”, the motor light flashes rapidly, delete remotes successfully.

The following functions can be set as personal needs.

Change the remote control direction

Repeat this operation for “Up/Open” to “Down/ Close”, or “Down/ Close” to “Up/Open”.


Inching or continuation move action

his operation can switch inching/ continuation move mode.


Lock or open the remote channel

Lock the channel: Do this operation when you have chosen the channel which you want to lock.

Open the channel: Do this operation whatever any channel.


You can delete the limit at any position

Delete open limit

Please finish this process within 5 seconds, otherwise it will exit the setting due to overtime.


Delete close limit

Please finish this process within 5 seconds, otherwise it will exit the setting due to overtime.


Delete all limits

Please finish this process within 5 seconds, otherwise it will exit the setting due to overtime.

Press the motor’s “Set key”5 times within 5 seconds, then the motor light flashes rapidly, delete limits successfully.


Make sure that there is no limit before the motor, or perform Delete Limit first.

If the surface of the track is too smooth to stop in the event of a blockage, the limit can not be set automatically, then use the manual method to set the limit.

On the first run, hand pull to start curtain open (or remote control curtain open), curtain open to the maximum state, and the motor meets obstruction to stop, wait 3 seconds, and the open limit is set successfully.
Then hand pulls to close the curtain(or the remote to control the curtain close), and the monitor will stop when the curtain is completely closed, wait for 3 seconds, and the close limit will be set successfully.

Yea~ Knowing how the remote control works, it’s even easier to control the curtain motor with a mobile phone App, 2 versions of APP networking have been arranged, so read on!

App User Manual (ZigBee/ Bluetooth version motor)

Scan the QR code as below, or search “Smart life” in any App store, to download the App. Then please add the ZigBee or Bluetooth gateway into App first.

This operation can also be performed when the gateway cannot find the device or the network needs to be reconfigured.

Method 1: In the case of power on, please press the motor ‘Set key’ 3 times in 5 seconds. The motor will make a sound “Di”, waiting to connect with the App.
Method 2: Or pressing the remote control ‘Set key’ 6 times, the screen shows 6, then continue to press the ‘Stop key’ once time quickly in less than 5 seconds. The motor will make a sound “Di”, waiting to connect with the App.

If the configuration fails, please reconnect once.
(The premise of using method 2 is that the remote control has been connected to the motor.)

⚠ Please follow these steps to configure the motor.

1. Please make sure that the ZigBee or Bluetooth gateway is connected to the App, and then enter the homepage to choose the gateway which you want to connect.
2. Under the ZigBee page, “Add subdevice”.

3. The App will now search for the device and register to your account. Choose the curtain motor to connect, then reset the Device Name.

4. Back to the ZigBee page, choose the motor which you just added.

5. Enter the motor control page, now you can control the motor by App as well. Enter the motor setting page, can set the motor limit, timing control, change the motor direction, and so on.
6. On the motor control page, click “∠” in the upper right corner to enter the motor technical parameter setting page, you can check the device information, change the name, and so on.

Of course, in addition to the curtain robot, there are remote controls (optional), which have different functions for different models!
