QMotion Partners with ControlWorks Offering New Crestron Module September 10th, 2014

Pensacola, Fla. September 10, 2014 -

Connecting QMotion Advanced Shading Systems to Crestron's home automation system is now easier thanks to a new partnership with ControlWorks. Through development of a new ControlWorks module that specifically integrates QMotion's shades, customers that have Crestron's home automation systems will now be able to enjoy seamless integration of their QMotion shades.

QMotion's Qconnect already provides an interface that lets the user synchronize QMotion shades with most home automation systems. With the additional ControlWorks module, now QMotion product integration is even easier and more accessible for owners of Crestron's home automation systems. The new module offers seven predetermined and three user-defined presets. The control module package also includes the unencrypted module, a sample SIMPL Windows program, a sample touch panel, and a detailed help file.

"Partnering with ControlWorks helps ensure that our customers who are currently using Crestron for their home automation can enjoy QMotion automated shades without having to upgrade their entire control system," said Gene Demestre, QMotion vice president of sales and marketing.

Providing system programming and design in the A/V market, ControlWorks is second only to Crestron as the largest online supplier of prepackaged modules for automation integration.

"We are excited to partner with QMotion and be able to offer our customers with Crestron systems access to these high-quality automated window shades," said Caleb Radecky, manager of online products and services for ControlWorks. "We're so impressed with the QMotion product lines that are designed for easy retrofit through a wireless, battery-powered system."
