January has arrived, which means it’s time to look back on 2023, and then head forward into the new year. Last year saw a lot happen, with the launch of some amazing products, including: Outdoor Meter, Curtain 3, Hub 2, S10, K10+, and more. And as always, thanks to all of you and the feedback you give to us, we’ve been able to both learn and have fun all at the same time. So below we’ve included a few special moments that we’d like to share with you as we look back at what happened over those magical 365 days.
A smart home device, where the only limit is your imagination.
Ah, the product that started it all. SwitchBot Bot has accompanied our loyal users for up to 8 years since its launch in 2016, and almost always makes it into our Best Seller list. Why? Because you guys love it. Bot can be used in so many different ways, and we’ve seen some pretty crazy stuff when it comes to how you all use it. In fact, we might just have the most imaginative fan-base out there, and boy oh boy, are we proud!
Let’s take a look at a few examples of what people got up to last year when using SwitchBot Bot (you might just get some inspiration too).

Now with more users than ever before, SwitchBot Curtain just keeps getting better.
“I am often away and my mother who is 82 years old and lives with me no longer has to climb on a chair to open or close the curtains, THANK YOU SWITCHBOT.”
“We got blackout curtains for our toddler’s room because she thinks it’s wake up time as soon as there is any light coming through her window. But with blackout curtains, she was bound to sleep all day if we don’t go up and get her.
We wanted to control when she wakes up but also not shock her from conplete darkness with the curtains closed to all of a sudden brightness from opening the curtains.”
Enriching lives doesn’t just stop here, even pets get in on the action!
