Pair Ikea Fyrtur Remote with Fyrtur Blinds?

I have my Ikea blinds connected to SmartThings. Yay! But to do that, I needed to factory reset the blinds, and now the Ikea remote that came with the blinds isn’t connected.

Ideally, I’d like to connect the remote directly to the blinds, so that SmartThings doesn’t see it. Just like when I first bought the blinds, but with SmartThings also able to control the blinds.

Is it possible for the Ikea Fyrtur blinds to be controlled (directly) by both SmartThings and the remote?

Did you ever find the answer?

According to everything l’ve read, it’s not possible. The blinds can only pair with a single controller at a time. You might be able to connect the remote to your smart things hub, and get the same effect that way. But you can’t connect the remote directly to the blinds at the same time as the blinds are connected to smart things.

I haven’t tried it, but there is a little chance that after the firmware update of those devices the Zigbee 3.0 compatibility would might allow it, if the devices would support both TouchLink functionality. But the blinds and the remote are most likely HA standard they would not have any TouchLink capability of the old ZLL standard.
Bulbs and remotes are able to do what you were looking for, with the pre Zigbee 3.0 firmware, as both being a ZLL device. Suddenly I haven’t had any chance to test it with the post Zigbee 3.0 firmwares as I haven’t got an IKEA Hub.
