SwitchBot Curtain 3: Everything you need to know about its specs, performance, and price

2 min read

The SwitchBot Curtain 3 enables HomeKit control through Matter integration, but only if you have the required hub. The device is designed to be mostly concealed behind the curtains with only the hooks visible. However, its size and weight may make it unsuitable for delicate curtain rods. The UV coating protects it from damage due to sunlight exposure. The hooks connect to the base of the device and can stretch to fit rods up to 1.5 inches in diameter. The device also includes rollers made of wear-resistant rubber material. It is compatible with extendable curtain rods and includes a connector, though only one is provided, requiring an additional connector for double-extending rods. The device can be charged via a USB-C port and offers up to eight months of use on a single charge. A separate solar panel attachment can provide continuous charging without needing to take down the device. The setup process involves using the native app, and calibration options include manual and automatic. App connectivity and usage depend on whether you are using the Home app or the native SwitchBot app. If you want to use HomeKit with the SwitchBot Curtain 3, you will need to set up the connection through the SwitchBot app. The Curtain 3 offers simple controls and adequate response times, but it requires the Hub 2 for compatibility with voice assistants. The device is priced at $89.99, and additional $90 is needed for the required Hub 2, making it a relatively expensive option for operating curtains. The product is available for purchase on the SwitchBot website and Amazon. Overall, the SwitchBot Curtain 3 offers ease of installation and setup, but the high price and requirement for a separate hub may be drawbacks for potential buyers.
