    Q96 Shades Link in Homeworks QS?

    I heard a long time ago that a new link type for legacy shades was being worked on by Lutron. Any word on this? Right now the options seem to be limited to:

    A. Leave a legacy processor in the system just for shades and control it with QS as a 3rd party device.
    B. Replace all motors in all shades.

    Option A is cumbersome and takes away from the desire for many clients to upgrade. It also adds several points of failure to a system that I'd rather not have. Option B is incredibly expensive and time consuming. I would LOVE a way to buy a token as is used for the legacy keypads to make a Q96 shades link in QS.

    Yes HWQS 9.0+ allows you to buy a license and use Q96 etc to keep the QED shades. I have not tried this yet. There is an App Note on Lutron's Resi site.
