Lighting and shade control for all! Lutron Electronics has announced wireless, radio frequency-based communication for its Sivoia QED roller 64 roller shade system, when used with its HomeWorks lighting control system.
The RF means that existing homes can easily have the product installed, without having to rip up floors and tears down walls.
The Sivoia QED roller 64 provides quiet control of both roller and Roman shades. Lutron’s HomeWorks home lighting control system provides one-button control of every light in the house. When used together, all of a home’s natural and artificial light can be controlled with one, or several, button(s).
- Requires a HomeWorks wireless P5 processor or the 4 or 8 series processor (if used with the hybrid repeater link)
- The wireless Sivoia QED shade communicates via RF
- Roller shade tube requires 3.5 x 3.5 inches for installation
- Maximum shade size is approximately 8 x 8 feet
