Performance Shadings is now offering the new Infinity Intelligent Wireless Interface for its proprietary line of motorized interior shading systems and drapery tracks.
The Infinity Intelligent Wireless Interface utilizes ZigBee Pro Home Automation (HA) profile wireless mesh network (802.15.4) standard and provides advanced automation of all Performance Shadings motorized roll shades, lift and drapery systems.
This reliable wireless interface provides for precise control with bi-directional feedback, as well as seamless integration with Control 4 home automation systems, the company says. The Infinity interface technology, developed cooperatively by Performance Concepts & zPlexus, is an ideal solution for retrofit applications where the necessary provisions / infrastructure requirements for control wiring may be difficult to accomplish.
120V AC in a single gang box at the motor location is all that is required. In addition to the shade motor status and position feedback, the Control4 automation system is able to control shade position at 1 percent increments. The device driver also allows for up to 10 presets and is field programmable. The presets can be activated by Control4 events such as time of day, sun rise/set, or a button press.
zPlexus is a new OEM devices developer and manufacturer with a focus on utilizing ZigBee PRO standard.
