Low noise, 6200 mAh battery and Wi-Fi connection
If we look at the technical equipment of this device, there is a powerful electric motor that can pull or. pull the curtains up to weight 50 kilograms. Its operation does not limit battery operation and even has a very low noise level - only 30 decibels. You will hardly feel the movement of the curtains in the room and you will not disturb your visit, for example.
Its equipment also includes intelligent features such as Wi-Fi connection. Thanks to Wi-Fi technology, you can connect this product to a well-known mobile application Xiaomi Home. You can then control the functions of this product directly from your smartphone.
There is no support for voice commands (in Chinese, with XiaoAI voice assistant) and you can also set up rules for automation with other smart products.
In addition, the product also supports traditional manual control. In addition to its standard operation, the motor is sensitive to movement, so it is enough if you move the curtains with your hands. This is a function from production and you will not damage the electric motor with this intervention. If you don't have a smartphone with you, Xiaomi also offers remote control buttons in its portfolio that support this product, so you can control the curtains from the bed.
This device offers a battery with a total capacity up to 6200 mAh. According to the manufacturer himself, it will ensure the final endurance for one charge for up to six months. Once discharged, you can conveniently charge this battery via a type C USB connector with support for fast to 27 W cable charging.
