QMotion will be raising control standards for blinds at ISE 2017 with QiS, a ZigBee operated two-way wireless control solution for the company’s range of motorised Roller Shades.
With Qis, installers can integrate blind control seamlessly into a whole house or single room automation system, whilst simultaneously receiving accurate feedback on shade positioning for improved performance, remote monitoring and maintenance.
Utilising ZigBee HA 1.2, QiS is easy to set up, configure and integrate with all compatible devices in a Control4 home automation system. Drivers are also available for easy integration with Vantage, Crestron, Savant, URC, RTI and other popular control platforms via a compact QMotion Qube integration device.
Each Qube can support up to 32 blinds or up to 60 blinds when used with a QMotion Range Extender on larger installations. Stand-alone control is also provided from tablets and mobile devices via QMotion IoS or Android apps.
Blinds can be easily grouped and automated to raise and lower to four selected, programmable positions. They feature automatic safety braking to ensure they never pass completely over the top of the roller, when rising. QMotion patented manual-override command also allows homeowners to operate the blinds by hand, where required, without damaging the automated mechanism.
QMotion blinds are ultra-energy efficient thanks to the company’s patented spring-counterbalancing system which keeps motor power consumption to an absolute minimum and delivers near silent operation in every application.
As well as showcasing the QiS with ZigBee HA 1.2 control, QMotion will also be demonstrating the importance of blind aesthetics. The maker says QMotion roller shade brackets are the industry’s thinnest, ensuring an easy and unobtrusive installation in properties where the preservation of the design scheme may be a top priority. The company offers a choice of 200 high quality fabric design and colour options together with a bespoke fabric service, letting installers meet any interior design requirements.
QMotion will also unveil its range of energy efficient Honeycomb shades, providing optimum shading with just a 4mm gap on either side, but can also be fully automated using QMotion’s QiS ZigBee, two-way solution.
