QMotion QIS Shades

The QMotion QIS Shades driver on the Beolink Gateway integrates all individual QMotion Shades and Shade Groups configured in QMotion QIS. The standard SHADE commands SET LEVEL, RAISE, LOWER and STOP are available for all resource types. The standard SHADE LEVEL status is only available for individual shade resources.

Connecting to the system
