Chowmain - BREL HOME Driver (FREE)


Recommended Posts



Chowmain releases FREE manufacturer sponsored BREL HOME driver for Control4. The BREL HOME Program brings the automatic power of window decoration and sun shading to your home.

BREL HOME has a comprehensive range of motors for a variety of window decoration and sun shading, including Roller Shades, Roman Shades, Honeycomb Shades, Cellular/Pleated Shades, Triangle Honeycomb, TDBU pleated, Awnings, Screens, Double rollers, Curtains, Roller shutters, Roof rollers, and many more which we can motorise.

One of the unique features of BREL HOME is the BJE24TR (made in collaboration with Benthin). This motor has been specially developed for angled windows (pictured), so that they can be fitted with pleated blinds. The Triangle motor ensures that the intermediate bar of the pleated blind first goes down until it is horizontal. Then the bottom bar will drop to the end position. This prevents the angled blind from getting stuck in the window.

The system also includes a Wi-Fi bridge, which enables mobile app control and doubles as a bridge for integration with third party control systems like Control4 for all our motors with up / down / stop, position and tilt based control.

How much does this driver cost?

This is a manufacturer sponsored driver and is released for FREE

What does this work for?

This will work for all your Brel Home products. Note it is important to select the right WiFi Bridge model (see below).

What is the difference between the different bridge models?

The hub Hub-02 is for both mono and bi-directional motors. Hub-01 and Hub-03 is for bi-directional motors only.

Does this device provide two way control?

This driver will provide bi-directional control and feedback over blinds / curtains that have two-way feedback. If the motor is uni directional only the driver will assume the last state sent is the current state. Note that the USB hub Hub-01 and Hub-03 is for bi-directional motors only and will not work for uni directional motors. 

How doe Uni Directional Drivers work?

Uni Directional Drivers have up, down and stop commands only. There is no feedback on the driver. Note uni directional motors are only supported by the WiFi Bridge DD-7002B model.

How does TDBU Drivers work?

TDBU drivers have two proxies associated. One for the top and one for the bottom. The top motor closes when it goes up and opens when it goes down. The bottom motor does the opposite and closes when it goes down and opens when it goes up. Also note that if the top motor goes below the bottom motor’s level it will force the bottom motor to move to the top motors desired level. This happens in reverse when the bottom motor goes above the top motor’s level as well.

How does Tilt Drivers works?

The Tilt driver has two proxies associated. One for the position and one for tilt. Note that on some motors tilt is driven by a single motor and as such tilting the louver will cause the main position to shift slightly between 95-100%. This is normal behavior.

How do Triangular Motors work?

Triangular drivers have one proxy representing two motors. One for the top and one for the bottom.

The description below shows the positions of the motors at different levels.

  • Position A (Top Fully Open, Bottom Fully Open) – Control4 100% level
  • Position B (Top Fully Closed, Bottom Fully Open) – Control4 50%
  • Position C (Top Fully Closed, Bottom Fully Closed) – Control4 0% level
