QMotion Donates Motorized Window Shades for Wounded Veteran’s Smart Home

After serving and protecting one’s country in far away places, readjusting to civilian life at home can sometimes be difficult. That adjustment becomes even more challenging for those heroes who were severely wounded. Through the efforts of the Gary Sinise Foundation and its R.I.S.E. Program (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment), QMotion Advanced Shading Systems donated 20 motorized window shades in support of the construction of a specially adapted custom smart home for Army Staff Sgt. Rusty Dunagan and his family in Edmond, Okla.

After losing three limbs in Afghanistan in 2010, Dunagan was selected by the Gary Sinise Foundation’s R.I.S.E. Program to receive a custom smart home to help him regain his independence. With new technologies donated from manufacturers, the home can be completely controlled through a smartphone or tablet.

“I am grateful to be alive and God must have a reason for me to still be here. I know this will be a challenge but I plan on getting some prosthetic legs, get to walking and get back to my family,” says Dunagan.

QMotion donated 20 Qadvanced Automated Roller Shades featuring ultra-quiet, friction-free operation and no external wires. The Qadvanced Roller Shades provide unmatched quietness as they are virtually soundless when in operation through the use of its patented, battery-operated motors that are tucked away inside the shade tube. All QMotion Qadvanced Roller Shades are equipped with a patented manual override feature through which customers can operate the shades by remote control or by hand without damage to the shade or motor. In addition, QMotion donated a Qconnect system that enables the shades to be connected with most home automation systems. Design Resources in Oklahoma City completed the installation.
