Thanks to the fact that it has its own battery, it doesn’t require cables to work perfectly, so it is much easier to take anywhere. This product is basically a curtain for the window that can be manipulated wirelessly. It works by means of a low power ZigBee communication protocol system through the Mi multifunctional smart entry door, with which it can be connected directly to the home network where all devices of the same type are located. In short, the curtains can be controlled by means of a Smartphone that has the Mi application.
Through this application, the user has the ability to program a schedule in which the curtains will open and close automatically, and at the same time can use the curtains through the XiaoAI voice system. In its design, it has a switch that will allow us to open and close them with just a touch. The device also connects to the Mi start sensor, so that when the user approaches the window, the start sensor will automatically activate the opening of the blinds and, as soon as the user leaves, the blinds will close.
