Please make sure your curtain Rod meets the dimension requirement.
SwitchBot Curtain Rod type supports Grommet, Ring Top, Back Tab and Tab Top curtains.
* For Grommet curtains, Grommet Kit is recommended.
* Rod Pocket curtain is NOT supported.
That was necessary because the SwitchBot curtain has only 4 grommets and in some situations like mine Inhad to had more
With the basic Bots the curtains did not close fully, after installing this set they now work perfectly. Would have given a 5 star rating but installation is a bit of a pig to say the least, this needs looking at as when you install the tape it constantly falls out. Remedy is to put the pegs on the curtains first and then fiddle with the tape, this worked for me and took no longer than 5 minutes after trying for 30 minutes going by the instructions.
SwitchBot Curtain Grommet Kit
Made my SwitchBot work well with a grommet curtain. In my opinion, this should be included.
Works as described. However had to use a bit of sandpaper on underside of wooden rod as driving wheel was slipping. After this all ok, linked to Alexa with no problem and can now open and close with voice command. Been operational for a couple of weeks and battery level is at 92%. Will be interesting to see how long it takes before requiring a recharge with normal use after some considerable playing with and demonstrating it.
