With a wider selection of gadgets and devices now available, more and more people are trying to convert into having smart homes. Having a smart home will certainly offer conveniences that were not possible before. But making homes smarter can come at a cost. It usually involves buying smart home devices which can be costly. But that may not always be the case. Gadgets like the new SwitchBot Curtain for example can help make your current curtains smarter.
The new SwitchBot Curtain is a motorized smart device that you can retrofit into your current curtains to make them connected into your smart home. You can use it to open or close your curtains even if you are not at home. You can automate any type of curtain, whether it is rod or rail type. Using the accompanying app, people can check out its other features such as Schedule and the Sun light sensor. You can also use voice control to use the SwitchBot Curtain via Alexa, Google Home, Siri, or with the Hub Mini.
The SwitchBot Curtain is easy to mount and set up with your current curtain. You do not need to deal with screws, nuts or bolts when installing it. Once installed, the SwitchBot enables you to automate opening and closing your curtains at home. You can use it to schedule when to open or close your curtains each day. You can also take advantage of the sunlight sensor to close or open the curtains automatically whenever the device detects sunlight.
The SwitchBot Curtain has other practical uses. It can help assist the elderly at home as well as deter intruders even while you are away by setting a schedule of opening and closing the curtains at regular intervals to indicate that someone is at home. The SwitchBot is now available for pre-order on Kickstarter for an early bird pack for only $69. It is expected to ship around April of next year.
