Iíve got to finish a rough in and it includes 17 blinds. But Iíve never done blinds before, and canít get any answers on where I need the wires for the blinds to go, or how to get the wires to those spots (blinds are supposed to be inside the casement mount)

Pigtail comes standard on the left side. All diagrams and specs are freely downloadable on their website.
[Link: qmotionshades.com]

We do mostly Wireless Battery powered zigbee shades. They work great with Control4, but leave a lot to be desired for other control systems imo.

they dont even have a Client facing app... they expect the integrator to do 100% of the programming, setup, and maintenance... but theres noway to edit a group or scene after you make it.. so there's a ton of delete everything and start over.

Are Qmotion less expensive than Lutron? With C4 are they more time consuming to get right? I was thinking of using them just because they seem to have some nice options as far as compact dual rollers and basic compact rollers with no fascia. If they have a zigbee radio that is reliable then all the better

Iíve been through the white papers on their website, but I canít find anything that shows an example of the actual wiring and mounting.

there's no fancy wire routing, or channels you need to worry about. Its literally just a pigtail off the motor.

They are less expensive than Lutron rollers.\

the zigbee joins right to the C4 mesh and we've had great luck with them.

This [Link: qmotionshades.com] shows the wires to be at the left. This document was in Manuals at [Link: qmotionshades.com] and I just picked one at random. Hope this helps.

It's so bizarre that manufacturers don't provide obvious descriptions that describe important things you're going to need to know.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Thanks Ernie, but that doesnít help. Iíd like to find photos of how people actually got the wire in the window casing.

On more research, I donít think inside casement mount will work on the windows on this job because they have about 3 different levels on the casing. Like stair steps

We are Qmotion dealers.

For standard roll shades (fabric is around the back of the roller) the wiring is always on the left.
For reverse roll (fabric comes over the front of the roller), the wiring is always on the right
