Set the blind to a desired position:

Invert Commands:

You can invert ON and OFF to represent 0% and 100% or the other way around. This is important because the installations differ and 100% doesn't mean 100% open in all homes.

To invert the commands, go to the Devices tab, open a blind's settings and toggle the "invert commands" switch.
