Q-motion technology – Battery operated automation

Offering the convenience of automated rollershades, without the expensive and invasive installation required from running power cables, Q-motion is the technology for you.

Powered by batteries that last up to five years, the Q-motion system operates rollershades quietly and smoothly. The batteries are concealed within the roller tube. Q-motion can be controlled either by using the remote control or by integrating your Q-motion rollershades with your Apple iOS devices via Q-sync technology. (Please note Q-sync must be purchased separately.)

Q-motion technology is the leading technology in the window covering industry.
• No wires or chains
• Cost effective installation and maintenance – no electrician required
• Quiet operation
• Compatibility with a range of home automation systems
• Control via  remote, iPhone or iPad
• Rollershades can also be operated by hand
• Long battery life (up to five years)* on standard alkaline batteries

Your smartphone or tablet can double as a remote controller for Q-motion rollershades. You don’t have to use a remote control with your Weathermaster® Q-motion Rollershades. All you need to do is purchase Q-sync technology, and then download an application for your Apple smartphone and/or tablet.


  • Download the latest version of the Q-motion software for Apple iOSPlug the Q-sync into the network, and it sends Q-motion commands as a standard transmitter would
  • Control up to 450 shades or groups from each Q-sync
  • Use names to identify windows, groups or zones
  • Setup once on a single device, then the settings load to the other smartphones and tablets automatically

Can’t locate the remote – no worries?
The Q-motion system can be manually controlled by touching the bottom bar.

For fully-up position: Pull down on bottom bar – approximately 50mm – then release.

To lower shade: Pull down on bottom bar more than 50mm and release.

For next position up: Pull down slightly on bottom bar – 10mm to 20mm – then release.

Q-motion’s unique low-friction design ensures extra-long battery life – up to five years. The batteries are stored inside each blind’s roller tube and are easily accessible for replacement by pulling down on the blind fabric to reveal the exposed extrusion and battery cut out. Rollershades don’t need to be removed from the window for battery replacement. Too easy right?
