A Brisbane blind retailer “Décor Blinds” was contracted to supply the 4450 motorised blinds and Shade Factor was sub contracted to provide the motors and control system inclusive of wiring.
The control system was required to integrate with a BACNet Building Management System (BMS) and drive the blinds to maximise the efficiency of the building.
LONworks is the ideal companion system for BACNet, which is used to operate air conditioning and air handling. The solution comprised:
The control installation was completed on time, within budget and with full compliance to the builder’s specification. A learning phase followed where via remote connection Shade Factor adjusted various parameters to fine tune the installation to the daily life of the building. Each tenant had different requests for local operation and therefore whilst the automatic features were required to be consistent throughout the building the Warema LON system was locally interfaced to operate the blinds via Dynalite, C-Bus, Crestron, AMX as well as wall switches, remote controls, and LON control screens.
