The Autelis Shade Control interfaces directly to the Lutron Sivoia QED 4-wire link.
Connection to Sivoia QED Link
Installation requires connection to the Lutron Sivoia QED 4-wire link. This 4-wire bus connects all the keypads and motors in your system. Please refer to the Lutron Sivoia QED Wiring and Programming Guide for more information. Follow the label on your device to match the terminals on the 4-wire connector with the correct bus wires. Use another device on the QED link to address the network and set limits. Note: This can be done from the EDU motors themselves and you do not need any keypads or remotes. This can be done before connecting Shade Control if desired. Please refer to the Lutron Sivoia QED Wiring and Programming Guide for more information. Note: Please make sure that address 96 is not assigned by checking the web interface under Devices and confirming that both values are all zeros.
Connection to Network
Installation requires connection to your network router or switch which supports 10Base-T Ethernet. Connect the built-in ethernet port to your network device using the included cat-5 cable or a standard cat-5 networking cable of your choice. You may also use a wireless bridge or a Powerline network device to provide the network connection. The Shade Control device will obtain an IP address automatically via DHCP.
Connection to Power
The XN200 hardware version gets its power from the 4-wire QED connection and no external power supply is required.
For BN100/SN100 hardware versions, connect the included power adapter to the device and plug it into a standard wall outlet.
When plugged in, the green LED on the ethernet port will blink for 5 seconds and then the device will boot normally.
To access the web interface type 'http://shadecontrol' into your browser. This may not work with all routers and network configurations (see below hint). You can also type the IP address of the Shade Control device which can be found in your router interface by matching an IP address from the table with the MAC address printed on the bottom of the device or by using an IP scanner tool to search by MAC address. Log in using the username 'admin' and the default password 'admin'.
Windows Hint: In your network connection properties under TCP/IPv4 properties, click the advanced button. In the DNS tab, select "Append these DNS suffixes (in order)" and click add and enter "." (a single period with no quotes).

To configure a timer, first set the days on which you wish the timer to run. Do this by clicking on the "MTWRFSU" letters that abbreviate each day of the week. When active, a day will be shown as red. Then set the time of day you wish the timer to run. Some examples of the format to use are: "12:00PM", "2:30PM", "1:05AM". Next, set the address of the shade you want to control or select a group by putting a "G" in front of the group number. The address is the same as the shade/group number found on the controls page. If you have named your shades/groups simply click on the shade icon and the popup will display the number. Finally, set the position you want the timer to set the shade to. This can be a percentage or a value from 0-255. If you have specified a group then you can also enter "P" for preset. When you are finished adding new timers, save the changes. Timers are not saved until they are listed as numbered timers instead of "New Timer".
To deactivate a timer, set all the days to inactive and save the changes. The timer will be deleted from memory.
You can create up to 100 timers.
