Being app-enabled, means you can schedule it. Plus, it is open and connected with API, IFTTT, and SmartThings support with Hub Mini. Also, since it is connected, you can remotely control your home’s curtain that is equipped with SwitchBot Curtain from anywhere in the world.
Thanks to a sunlight sensor, SwitchBot Curtain will automatically draws the curtain open or close when direct sunlight lands on it, as dictated by you. A clever design allows SwitchBot Curtain to be used with curtains ranging from rod to rail type. And that, my friends, is perhaps the biggest draw of this little ‘robot’.

And then there is an optional add-on solar panel that will the charging of the battery within out of the equation. Seriously, I do mean that this could be one of the greatest tech in 2019.

The choice is yours. If you are sold, you can pre-order SwitchBot Curtain from Indiegogo InDemand.
