Legrand, the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, announced at CEDIA 2017 that its On-Q radiant® RF (radio frequency) Lighting Control and adorne® Wi-Fi Ready Lighting systems will integrate QMotion motorized window shade control.
An automatic version 3.0 or later firmware update will enable control of QMotion shades via the Legrand LC7001 RF Lighting Controller hub. Corresponding 3.0 updates to the Legrand Lighting Controller app will be available from the iOS and Google Play app stores. This software integration allows integrators and their clients to easily add shading into their projects without installing new wires or undergoing programming training. In addition to simple installation, another benefit is ease of use with control from a single app and user-friendly interface.
With new software, the On-Q radiant and adorne lighting control systems can operate QMotion Zigbee shades connected to the QMotion Qube. Compatible shades include QMotion’s Qadvanced with ZigBee Home Automation version 1.2 (HA1.2) battery–operated Roller and QMotion Qadvanced Intelligent System (QIS) Hardwired shades.
“This integration brings together the strengths of two of our leading lines and gives home tech professionals a very attractive, robust and easy-to-install solution for lighting and window shade control within the smart home,” said Fritz Werder, VP/GM of Legrand’s On-Q and Nuvo lines. “On a larger scale, it reflects our determination to build integrated solutions, maximizing the synergies among our market leading brands to provide installers with the confidence and convenience of high performing end-to-end solutions.”
The adorne and radiant Collections by Legrand create a lasting impact on discerning homeowners with a comprehensive selection of wall plates, dimmers and switches, scene controllers, plug-in modules and outlets. The collections enable integrators to offer diverse functionality with endless choices in stylish designs to fit every customer’s project and budget.
