“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. The SwitchBot Curtain has a built-in sun light sensor to detect sunlight. This can help save energy by reducing the workload on your air-conditioning and heating. It can be set to automatically close during the day time in summer to block out the sunlight and keep your room cool. You can also have it automatically open during the day in winter to warm your room with sunlight.”
“Leverage technology to take care of the daily routines through automation and voice control. With SwitchBot Hub Mini, you can create scenes for your rooms. For example, a “Lights Off” scene turns off the light and draws the curtains brighten the room naturally with sunlight. Also, Hub Mini enables voice control with smart speakers such as Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Apple HomePod, so you can just say it “Alexa/Ok Google/Hey Siri, give me sunlight”.”
Pledges for the automatic curtain opener are expected to start shipping out to backers during April 2020 and packages are available offering single and multiple SwitchBot Curtain controllers.
