One of Xiaomi’s ecological enterprises, Aqara is a sub-brand of Lumi. Their previous products have a place in the smart home market in China because of their simple product design and high-cost performance. With the recent launch of the Aqara HomeKit Smart Home Gateway, Aqara has now launched its smart curtain motor which is different from its first curtain motor released in 2017.
The new motor is much more comfortable to use and convenient to install. It is an intelligent electric curtain machine and works well with third-party devices already in the HomeKit ecosystem, so you don’t have to be limited to just the Aqara product or any other single brand. Motor noise is basically negligible, and as the controller supports obstacle detection it will be easy to avoid the burning out of the motor.
After updating to the latest version of the firmware, Aqara maintains a consistently simple design aesthetic and has an excellent price, performance ratio in its class. If you want a cost-effective HomeKit electric curtain, Aqara Smart Electric Curtains are a perfect choice for the cost conscious customer.
It also comes with a smart timer in the Mi app that allows users to open and close the curtain according to the set time and also work with the Xiaomi’s XiaoAI voice control. The wireless switch along with the device also makes it easier to open and close the blinds with some gentle taps.
Currently, it is available with a price tag of 549 Yuan.
