Seeing is Believing
Even the most eco-friendly air-conditioning consumes energy to cool your room. We can reduce energy consumption by minimizing temperature fluctuations in your room. Close the curtains to block out sunlight to keep your room cool.
Sun light sensor for keeping the room cool
Save energy with the solar panel strip add-on
You can also install the solar power strip add-on to charge the SwitchBot Curtain’s battery using sunlight, thus eliminating the need to recharge the battery. Don't worry about "charging anxiety" on the SwitchBot Curtain. Install and forget!
Leverage technology to take care of the daily routines through automation and voice control. A "Lights Off" scene turns off the light and draws the curtains brighten the room naturally with sunlight. Or you can just say it "Alexa/Ok Google/Hey Siri, give me sunlight".
Lifestyle automated with the Schedule feature
Maintain a regular light-dark cycle in your bedroom to keep your sleep-wake rhythm in sync with your circadian rhythm. The SwitchBot Curtain can be set to close at night and open when it senses daylight. Get better sleep and wake naturally to sunshine.
Set your curtains to close automatically when you’re out of the house to hide your valuables from prying eyes. Can’t remember if you closed the window? Check via our app and remotely close the curtains where necessary. Or set them to automatically open at regular intervals to give the impression that someone's home.
Your curtain keeps the bad guy away.
Adapt your existing curtains instead of replacing them. We at SwitchBot are firm believers in retrofitting your home to create a smart home instead of replacing trusty old appliances or furniture that are still in work well.
Retrofitting is simple with SwitchBot Curtain. It only takes a few seconds to make your existing curtains smart. You have to see it to believe it.
Seeing is believing
The average price of a set of smart curtains is USD 1,000. The SwitchBot Curtain is way more cost-effective at a fraction of that price. You don’t just save money with the SwitchBot Curtain, you do your part for the environment by retaining your existing curtains instead of throwing it away.
We support 99% curtains
Some smart curtain solutions only support a single type of curtains. Others are too bulky or require tedious modifications to provide a power source.
The SwitchBot Curtain supports different track types such as U-rail and I-rail, and also rod types. It is also wireless. Just clip it on and you're ready to go. It is that simple.
We even handle that "BUMP" for extendable rods and rails
The round rails allow the SwitchBot Curtain to glide smoothly along the rod. Just clip on the rails and you're all set.
For those of you who have a longer rod with a bump where the rod extends, we've got that figured out. The SwitchBot Curtain is not affected by such bumps.
Install in seconds
The SwitchBot Curtain has hooks for U-rail. It is simple to attach the respective hooks to the rails.
The SwitchBot Curtain has hooks for I-rail. It is simple to attach the respective hooks to the rails.
Wouldn't it be great to just say it?
Even with SwitchBot Curtain, you'd probably still instinctively draw the curtains by hand some times. When it senses you drawing the curtain, the SwitchBot Curtain will kick in and do the work for you. We call this Touch & Go.
Double-sided curtains are very common and we have been getting a lot of inquiries about how to use the SwitchBot Curtain with these. You could get two units and part the double-sided curtains from the middle. Or, you could try out this tip from the King of Retrofit! Attach the top curtains with a velcro strip or a strong clip so the curtains will move as one. Then install the SwitchBot Curtain on either end to let it work its magic!
So your next question is probably where to find a velcro strip. The good news is, we believe so strongly in retrofitting that we will ship every SwitchBot Curtain with a velcro strip in the box as a standard accessory.
What's more, you can forget about having to charge it by getting the solar power strip add-on. Sunlight will ensure the SwitchBot Curtain is charged up for its daily work routine.
Our SwitchBot Curtain is very complicated from the inside so it is so SIMPLE for you on the outside.
Why we need your support
We have finished the development of the SwitchBot Curtain and we are excited to get it into the market to you. However, we cannot bring this product to life without your support. We need to raise funds for the raw materials and components needed to start mass production of the SwitchBot Curtain.
A few years ago, we shared the possibility to control SwitchBot on their Raspberry Pi, OpenWRT board, or PC running Linux based system. It has been a fantastic journey since then with contributions by many users who love to DIY!
Makers who don't want to use Bluetooth controls can now choose to use our RESTFUL APIs. Moreover, you can use Home Assistant!
Tap on the power of IFTTT + Webhook to create and trigger countless incredibly creative scenarios!
Boost your creativity!
Does the SwitchBot Curtain inspire you to use it in other ways? Yes, we thought it would. That's why we are sharing the STL files to build your hooks after the campaign!
Besides adapting the SwitchBot Curtain to work with any rods and rails, you can also use create hooks to extend the SwitchBot Curtain's function! We came up with wacky ideas such as using it to open and close the door, and building a cam cable to mounting a small action camera or the OSMO Pocket. We are excited to see what creative ideas can you come up with!
Be creative with your cat.
Development and testing
The SwitchBot Curtain is not possible before we develop, craft, and test tirelessly in the past 2 years. We tried and tested thousands of rods and rails, and found every possible way to stress test it. We listen. We fix. We iterate.
Validated thousands of rods and rails
Our Philosophy and Story
Our co-founder and CEO, Connery, has been the in IoT industry specializing in smart home for years. One night after reading before sleeping, he realized that he cannot even turn off his bedroom light and close his curtain on the bed. This led to the team evaluating all kinds of self-proclaimed smart switches and curtains in the market. Our first thought was to have a robot butler. Yet, the reality is that despite years of robots making the news, we have not seen a real robot that in our homes. Thus, we began our adventure to create a useful, simple and convenient bot. SwitchBot is the fruit of our labor. With this product philosophy in mind, we strive to create more products that will help our users save time, effort and money spent on hiring professionals for installation.
