QMotion Extends Hardwired Communications and ZigBee Controls September 13th, 2016

PENSACOLA, Florida – QMotion, an industry leader in innovation, announces the launch of their new hardwired and ZigBee battery motorized roller shades.

QMotion’s Qadvanced Intelligent System (QIS) for hardwired motorized shades interfaces with leading home automation systems, including Vantage, Control4, Elan, RTI, Savant, and more. Features and accessories include single or dual hardwired switches, multichannel remotes, 2-way communication, patented manual override, and low power consumption for maximum energy savings.

Unique to QMotion’s system, the hardwired configuration utilizes standard cat 5e or cat 6 cabling for power and communication, eliminating the additional expense of proprietary cabling. In addition, QMotion now offers adapters enabling the QIS products to operate through most pre-wired systems. Customers will not have to rewire to enjoy the exclusive patented features of QMotion shades.

For customers needing a wireless, battery operated shade with 2-way communication, QMotion recently launched the new Qadvanced with ZigBee Home Automation v1.2 motorized shades, engineered with native ZigBee specifications.

The new Qadvanced with ZigBee HA1.2 battery operated shades with 2-way communication are ideal for retrofit installations. Another industry exclusive for QMotion, the Qadvanced with ZigBee HA1.2 are the only battery operated shades available that have built in ZigBee capabilities without the need of additional plugins. QMotion continues to deliver the exclusive features that customers demand including quiet motors, long battery life, multichannel remotes, patented manual override, and integration with the leading automation systems. The addition of 2-way communication allows for instant feedback of the shade position with automation applications.

QMotion’s hardwired and battery shades can be operated using the new QdR wireless remotes. Improving signal strength and range, the stylish and smaller remote utilizes five channels for easy programming.

From the company that brought the industry’s narrowest and largest battery-operated shades, QMotion Roller Shades are designed for a customized experience. Shades are available in either standard or reverse roll, and numerous options are available for fabrics and fascia to accentuate your décor. With nearly 300 fabrics, offerings include solar, sheer, translucent, decorative and blackout options, allowing varying degrees of privacy, view-through, glare control and degrees of heat gain. As with all QMotion’s motorized products, the new shades are equipped with a patented manual override feature, an industry exclusive. Customers can operate the shades by remote control or by hand without damage to the shade or motor.
