I recently installed a set of QMotion QIS Roller shades. They are hardwired (CAT5) and powered into the QMotion Power / Comms Hub found here: http://www.qmotionshades.com/products/25-controls/270-power-and-communication-panel From what I can gather, there are two RJ-45 ports on the control hub. Control4 doesn't support communication with the shades over these RJ-45 ports, correct? From what I've been told, those RJ-45 ports need to be converted somehow to RS-232? Is this true? If so, would this piece of hardware work? https://www.amazon.com/Serial-Communication-Converter-Adapter-Mini-Size/dp/B0196AO1IG/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=RS485+to+232&qid=1565023067&s=gateway&sr=8-3 If not, has anyone else tackled this kind of integration?
Hi. In ComposerPro I have 3 Qadvanced Roller Shades. I'd like to program a single button on a wired keypad (labeled "Shades") to control all three shades simutaneously, Up/Down/Stop. In other words, press the Shades button, all three start closing. Press again, they all stop. Press again, they move in opposite direction (Open in this case). Press again, they stop. Etc. This is fairly simple in Crestron, as there is an Open/Close/Stop function to choose which creates this action. Seems I can probably throw a bunch of conditional programming, but want to rule out the possibility I'm missing something, grouping functions, C4's "Toggle" functions, etc. Any help would be appreciated.
I have 4 sets of QMotion shades. I control them via my Control4 automation system. However, Control4 treats them as Lights and not shades. My control4 installer tells me that its an issue with the QMotion driver. Is this true? Can you explain why the shades are treated as Lights and not blinds/shades? Anyone else out there with qmotion? thanks, Steve
I'm having a problem toggling my qmotion shades. The built in device specific commands for say channel 5 of open, close, 25%, 50%, and 75% all work fine. I was told that the built in toggle function would work within composer but i'm getting mixed results. For example, 3 shades in one room. 2 of the shades will toggle and the other one doesn't respond and seems to freeze for a period of time from accepting any commands. I know a lot of people use Qmotion so I'm hoping someone can share the code of exactly how they are toggling the blinds. I'd like to setup a keypad button that simply toggles a channel. My second question is related but I'll ask it separately. In this scenario, I have a single shade with a toggle keypad button. The toggle button sometimes doesn't work the first time. If I do it again, it does work. My assumption is that C4 doesn't know what position the shade is in so it somehow guesses and sends either an open or closed command. Not sure how it makes that decision. Maybe there is a built in variable that it's referencing? Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks
