SwitchBot: Smart Curtains in Less than a minute

Remember the first time you went to the movies? You were most probably astonished by the curtains that opened up automatically before the show began. Now you can get the same magic into your home, and have the smart curtains opened and closed by this small wireless device.

It takes only about 30 seconds to install the SwitchBot Smart Curtain. It can be mounted to the rod or the rail of a curtain. Users can then control and schedule their curtains to open and close with an app on their phone or by voice control – the system supports Google, Alexa, Siri and IFTTT with the SwitchBot Hub. A built-in light sensor allows the curtains to open automatically when the sun rises. The Smart Curtains work with SmartThings and Homebridge.

A wide variety of track and rod types with different diameters are supported. The app allows users to set schedules for their curtains to open or close – adding safety when homeowners are on holiday. The rechargeable battery lasts up to eight months, depending on the usage. SwitchBot is currently available at Kickstarter for $69 – delivery is expected in April 2020
