What if you could make your curtains open with your voice? Or better, with your alarm?


It’s rare to come across a good idea that no one’s thought of yet… that’s simple, sensible, and most importantly, feasible. The SwitchBot appeared somewhere on my Instagram feed a week ago, and I scrolled right past it, paused, and scrolled right back. Here’s a product that’s perfect for lazy people, for technologically inclined people, for elderly people, and for people who prioritize home-security. What’s the SwitchBot? Basically put, it’s a robot that runs along your curtain rod, dragging your curtains open or closed… but when you think about its possible applications, the SwitchBot’s a pretty great product!

Designed to universally retrofit onto most curtain rods, the SwitchBot comes with two hooks that hold it in place and a wheel that moves the bot left or right. Place the SwitchBot between the first and second loops of your curtain or blind, and the bot can now, on command, run up and down the curtain rod, maneuvering your curtains open or closed. SwitchBot runs on an app, but even supports voice commands via your phone or smart speaker, effectively allowing you to have your own “Let there be light” moment by commanding the curtains to open at will. IFTTT and shortcuts support even lets you sync SwitchBot with your alarm, or with the time of the day, thanks to the bot’s in-built light sensor. You can even hook it to your home security setup, allowing you to remotely trigger the lights and curtains in your room to deter any criminals. Moreover, you could program it to even pull the shades shut in the afternoon when the daylight’s strong, helping save on your air-conditioning and electricity bill. It truly is a simple idea with endless applications!

The SwitchBot’s strongest sell is its universal design. It fits onto practically every type of curtain rod/rail, working with 99% curtain types (even double-sided ones). Setting it up is as simple as hooking the SwitchBot onto the rod and configuring it in the app… or using a traditional remote-style control to activate your curtains. The bot packs enough pulling power to tug on curtains as heavy as 17 pounds, and comes with a 3400 mAh battery and even an optional solar panel add-on to keep it working forever without you having to worry about charging it! What a ‘bright’ idea, no?!

Why Choose SwitchBot

Energy Saving

Sun light sensor for keeping the 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.

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.

Smart Living

Lifestyle automated with the Schedule feature

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”.

Healthy Lifestyle

Wake up naturally to sunlight

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.

Retrofit Your Curtains

Retrofitting is simple with SwitchBot Curtain. It only takes a few seconds to make your existing curtains smart.

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.

Supports 99% Curtains

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.

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.

The SwitchBot Curtain has hooks for U-rail. It is simple to attach the respective hooks to the rails.

App Control

Open and close the curtain at your fingertip. We offer intuitive App control for iOS and Android, with weekly/bi-weekly updates following feedback from you. OTA firmware update is also available for better user experience.

Voice Control

Smart living is powered by your voice commands. Wouldn’t it be great to just say it?

Touch & Go

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.

Remote Control

A wireless remote button add-on for you to place anywhere.

Retrofit Double-sided Curtains

Double-sided curtains are very common and we have been getting a lot of enquiries 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 ends to let it work its magic!

So your next question is probably where to find a velcro strip. 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.

The Unseen Bot

Size fits in your palm

The SwitchBot Curtain is so small that it hides nicely behind your curtains. It will work in its own way without getting in your way. Likewise, they keep the sophisticated mechanism within the body of the SwitchBot Curtain, giving you fast and easy installation so you can enjoy the benefits it brings.

Battery Life

Instead of a wired system, the SwitchBot Curtain is a wireless solution. It uses a rechargeable battery that lasts 8 months depending on the usage. This means you only need to charge it once or twice a year!

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.

In the box, 2 types of hooks will be there for your preference.
