 Update (4/2017): There are now two different cloud drivers.  One for 9600 baud, and the other for 19200 baud.  Please use the correct version.  The blind proxy driver will work with either, simply select the correct cloud driver under connections.

The MechoShade driver driver enables a dealer to control multiple shade instances from a single Mecho IQ485 or MechoNet Shade System.  Each instance of the slave driver will allow a dealer to control Up, Down,Presets and Stop.  The driver has also been designed to use group, zone or individual blind controller methods.

There are two use cases:

  • The customer has 12 shades and needs 1 instance on the Control4 interface to control all the shades.  This can be done easily by adding this driver and selecting the proper group to which all the shades are connected.

  • The customer needs 2 instances on the Control4 screen to control each blind/shade.  Just add 2 instances of this driver and select the proper node address.


  • MechoShade IQ485 Gateway (RS232)
  • MechoNet


  • Up, Down, Stop, and Preset 1,2,3 are supported from the main Control4 interface.
  • Under Composer Programming all standard commands are supported and:
    • Reversal On/Off
    • Calibrate
    • N/U Mode toggle
    • Set Preset 1, 2, 3
