Not only that, but the stretch goal is ST integration for all Switchbot devices, not just the Curtain. That’s the good news.
The bad news is the Curtain is not scheduled to ship until April 2020, although Switchbot does have a good record of delivering on their timeline promises.
I like the design of the Curtain as well. It’s very clever, although it’s more about retrofitting your existing curtain rods then existing window coverings. The reason is that it doesn’t fuss with the cord at all: it literally physically moves the curtains along the rail just by pushing them. The same way you would by hand if you were not using a cord.
Anyway, I have some of their other devices, I like them, and I have a review thread in the forum:
If the reviews are good on the curtain I will get at least one, but I think I’m going to wait and see how the reviews are. Although I may go ahead and back it just to indicate market demand for that form factor.
I am feeling pretty optimistic about this one, so we will see how it goes.

We heard you when you said connecting Smartthings through IFTTT being laggy. We heard you want to open up more possibilities with Smartthings. Yes, we heard you. And here is our promise. We will support direct integration with Smartthings for all SwitchBot products when we hit the $300,000 mark in the SwitchBot Curtain Kickstarter project.
