The U.S. Patent Office has issued two patents to QMotion Advanced Shading Systems for technological advances in automated shade systems.
U.S. Patent No. 8,919,419 recognizes the counterbalanced motorized shade roll system and method credited to inventors Willis Jay Mullet, QMotion chief executive officer, and Richard Scott Hand, director of new product development. The patent covers QMotion’s roller shade design that includes a motor, batteries and a torsion spring positioned within the roller tube as well as the method of operating such a shade.
QMotion’s unique roller shade design allows the torsion spring to be moved along the length of the roll tube. This flexible design allows for an unlimited array of shade lengths and spring combinations that enables QMotion to make shades in an almost limitless array of custom sizes and provides counterbalanced energy efficiencies exclusively in the QMotion system.
QMotion has been granted U.S. Patent No. D724,614 for a portion of a display screen with a graphical user interface to inventor Willis Jay Mullet. The patent was awarded for the unique graphical user interface for QMotion’s smart phone application that includes a window with an interactive window shade. This patent covers the interface that appears in both the iOS and Android applications for controlling QMotion shades.
