I am pleased with the products that switxhbot sells. I look for devices that are reliable, reasonably priced and shipped within a week of order. The SwitchBot remote was easy to set up , had a good range from the device being controlled.
The SwitchBot works as expected. After testing other similar devices this is the best relation price/quality
I tried multiple curtain solutions before, each with their specific issues. But the SwitchBot Curtain 3 did exactly what was promised, and delivered on everything I wanted.
Two things can be improved :
1. The motor noise could still be lower (I read it was an improvement to the version 2, don’t want to know how loud that was), but over het used to it quite fast.
2. The solar ‘panels’ could provide more charge, but hey, better than not having the extra juice.
But for everything else I am extremely satisfied. Installation was sub-5 minute, integration with HomeKit with the Hub 2 matter support was easy, and both curtains now open and close both with automated routines or remote button pushes, as well as manual commands or Siri requests. And that without a hitch for the past 3 weeks (that I use them).
Highly recommended !
They simply WORK! Used Switchbot Curtain Rod 2 to close my curtains via the App from 300 miles away last week when I was travelling for a few days.
