SwitchBot Curtain 2 - Smart curtain motor in a new version

When it comes to making "dumb" devices smart, SwitchBot is guaranteed to have a solution. The Chinese company has specialized in gadgets that integrate non-smart devices into the smart home in a simple but effective way.

One of the manufacturer's best-known gadgets is the SwitchBot Curtain, which opens and closes curtains fully automatically. Now the SwitchBot Curtain has appeared in an updated version.

Opening curtains in the morning becomes obsolete with the SwitchBot Curtain 2. The smart curtain robot is able to open and close curtains fully automatically.

The new model is again available in two versions: As SwitchBot Curtain Rod 2 (Link) for conventional curtain rods or as a SwitchBot Curtain U Rail 2 (Link) for U-rails.

New "DynamiClamp" design

The SwitchBot Curtain Rod 2 has had some useful improvements. Instead of a large bracket, as was the case with the predecessor, the new model takes a slightly different approach. The new design is called "DynamiClamp", in which two separate brackets or drives move the curtain. As a result, the curtain motor glides faster, more reliably and more smoothly over the curtain rod.

SwitchBot Curtain Rod 2 Compatibility

Compatible with most curtain rods.

At the same time, DynamiClamp ensures greater compatibility even with exotic curtain rods. Rods with a diameter of 15-40 mm or a circumference of 47-125 mm are suitable. Curtains weighing up to 8 kg are no obstacle for the SwitchBot Curtain Rod 2. Installing the SwitchBot Curtain Rod 2 takes just 30 seconds.

Control via app and voice command

The SwitchBot Curtain Rod 2 is operated either via the app or by voice command. Schedules for opening and closing can be set via the app, you can control the process at the touch of a button or leave the "Light Sensing" function to automatically control the brightness.

A SwitchBot Hub is also required to control the curtain remotely. Without the SwitchBot Hub, the curtain robot can only be addressed via Bluetooth.

As an alternative to the app, the SwitchBot Curtain Rod 2 can be conveniently controlled by voice command. Such a command could look like this: "Alexa, open the curtain in the bedroom" . The assistants "Alexa", "Google Home" and "Siri" are supported, but also service providers such as "IFTTT" or "SmartThings".

Up to 8 months battery life

The SwitchBot Curtain Rod 2 needs to be plugged in approximately every 8 months. It goes even longer with the optionally available solar panel, which supplies the curtain motor with electricity almost permanently.
