So, you’ve got your hands on SwitchBot Curtain, life is good, but you’re still just using our app to control it, and even then you’re just opening and closing your curtains, umm… Hello? The possibilities are endless.

Wake up to natural light in the morning.

So you’ve just woken up, eyes are weary and you open your SwitchBot app to operate your curtains right? Wrong. Why not use a sunrise trigger, and have them open automatically? It’s 2022 after all. Waking up to natural sunlight in the form of an alarm in the morning is a much better (and healthier) way to regulate your body clock, and it also just feels that little bit better too.

Keep room temperature comfortable.

SwitchBot-meter Plus

Where you can use it:

Living room

Are you a little bit more sensitive when it comes to temperature at home (I know I am). Well you can actually set SwitchBot Curtain to automatically close your curtains at home according to home temperature when connected to Meter Plus via SwitchBot Hub Mini. So for example, if room temperature is higher than 29℃ in hotter parts of the year you can have you curtains close to help protect you from the sun. Or even have SwitchBot Curtain automatically open your curtains when the temperature is lower in winter. This is actually also a great way to protect furniture from discoloration or damage when exposed to the sun for long periods of time.

Have pets? High temperatures are a nightmare for those of us that have furry friends at home. SwitchBot Curtain is also a great way to protect pets when temperatures get too high and you can automatically close your curtains to help them cool down by shading the sun.

Use your curtains to protect your privacy.

SwitchBot-contactsensor

Where you can use it:

Living room

Probably one of the best ways to use SwitchBot Curtain (aside from opening curtains, of course). And a great way to protect privacy. SwitchBot Curtain when paired with Contact Sensor is able to detect when you’ve come home, and can automatically close your curtains to help give you more privacy. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve got home from work, got through the door, put on music and began dancing around in my underwear in the living room until I’ve realised “Oh, I’ve forgotten to close the curtains”. At which point half the neighborhood has probably witnessed my Just Dance, Wii Standard Edition skills, and there’s no going back.

Get ready for movie night!

Ready to watch a movie? All it takes is one phrase, “Alexa, start movie night.” And using the devices above, pretty much everything will be done for you to get set up and ready to watch a movie, or three. There’s no need to get up and go pull your curtains closed, and your living room lights can be turned off automatically by using SwitchBot Bot. Hub Mini can also turn on your TV using its infrared signal, and hey, you’re good to go, just don’t forget the popcorn.

Where you can use it:

Bedroom

Previously, when lying in bed late at night reading, after a while I would find myself ready to sleep and would find that… Oh no, my lights were still on, and curtains still open. Worst this ever right? Well, actually it doesn’t have to be the end of the world. In fact, you don’t need get out of bed to pull curtains or turn off lights at all. All it takes is just a “Alexa, good night.” And you’ll be able to automatically turn off the lights and close curtains without lifting a finger. If you also add a SwitchBot Humidifier to your setup, you can even have it turned on automatically so that your room stays comfortable (and smells nice if you add a little incense oil), to make your sleeping environment even more comfortable.

So as you can see, SwitchBot-gordijn really is just the first step. If you really want to make your home automated, and smarter, SwitchBot Ecosystem can do so much more than just opening and closing your curtains. With the help of other products like Hub Mini life will only get easier and it just doesn’t stop there. Automation possibilities are endless. I’ve only listed a few here, but if you’re looking to find out more ways to use our devices, you can check out Reddit, Twitteren, Facebook or even Instagram to see how other users are using our products. There’s endless amounts of automation fun to be had, and you should be a part of it.
