Chowmain - FREE Nice DMBM Shade Controller driver

Chowmain releases FREE Nice DMBM driver for Control4. This driver automatically imports Nice shades and groups into Control4. Once imported it provides instant up, down, stop + set level control and feedback from any Control4 user interface including on-screen navigator, mobile, tablet, touchscreens, keypads and more. 

Integration into Control4 not only allows you to control it from any interface but exposes the shades so that you can automatically close the shades when you arm the security system, start a movie, when it gets dark and open it when its morning or when you have finished watching your movie. 

You can also schedule the shades using Control4's wakeup / goodnight functionality, provide more fine tuned scheduling using Control4's When/Then or Chowmain's scheduler for T3 touchscreens. 

If you're heading to CEDIA Expo you should check the Nice guys out at booth 538. They have some excellent shades well worth looking at.
