Like the original SwitchBot, SwitchBot Blind Tilt will turn dumb blinds into smart blinds. Made for horizontal blinds with a wand aka twisting rod, Blind Tilt installs in minutes and requires no disassembly of any part of your existing blind.

Once installed, you will function as you may have expected, including opening and closing the blind remotely via the companion app from anywhere in the world.

Also using the app, you can schedule for opening and/or closing of the blinds and set timers too. There is a Sunrise and Sunset mode that automatically opens and closes blind based on the sunrise and sunset times.

Thanks to the built-in light sensor, the blind can adjust automatically. For example, when the sunlight is strong, it may close the blind and when it is cloudy, it will open to allow more light into the room.

Of course, you can choose to control the blind manually, use the SwitchBot Remote, or SwitchBot NFC Tag with a smartphone but whichever way it opens, the app will automatically sync the status of the blind so you can pick it up from where you have left.

The advanced motor in this clever gadget is able to adjust blind slats as close as 2°. This means you can let the sunshine in at an angle that is just right to your preference.

The SwitchBot Blind Tilt is outfitted with a 2,000 mAh battery, bolstered by a solar panel, which offers up to 8 months of operation.

When paired with the SwitchBot Hub Mini, you will have the ability to control the blinds remotely, or through third-party voice assistants.
