To accommodate the larger windows of today’s open-concept designs, Legrand introduces its new QMotion Wider Qadvanced Shades. Showing for the first time at CEDIA Expo 2019 in Booth 905, QMotion says that its Wider Qadvanced Shades are the only motorized shades on the market, hard-wired or battery-operated, available in sizes as large as 13 feet wide by 15 feet tall in select fabric options.
The growing preference for open-concept home designs featuring larger windows that grant greater access to natural daylight is in turn increasing the demand for automated shading systems to help control that natural light indoors. However, many homeowners are struggling to find motorized shading systems on the market that fit their ultra-large windows. In response, QMotion has expanded its Qadvanced Roller Shade offering in larger sizes.
Available in a wide range of colors, Wider Qadvanced Shades feature virtually soundless operation in hard-wired or battery-operated versions and a patented design that utilizes torsion springs to reduce energy consumption. Simple to install, the hard-wired models use standard Cat5e/Cat6 cables for both power and communication and feature a Zigbee HA 1.2 radio inside the motor, eliminating the need for extra shade motor bridge devices. The battery-operated family of solutions uses only internal batteries, eliminating the problem ofhiding external battery packs or wires. Like all the models found in QMotion’s automated roller shade lineup, Wider Qadvanced Shades can be controlled via remote, mobile device, or the company’s exclusive manual override feature that prevents stripping the motor during adjustments.
