The Aqara Curtain Driver E1

The Aqara Curtain Driver E1 follows in the footsteps of the Roller Shade Driver E1, in as much as it’s a retrofit option (in the former’s case) to control your curtains. The E1 isn’t the first to market with such a device, as both Switchbot and ZemiSmart have had these kinds of motors for a while. That said, at the time of this video, only the ZemiSmart option has HomeKit compatibility, with Switchbot relegated to using HomeBridge for the time being. So, how does it compare, and is a retrofit device worth going for over motorised curtain tracks? Watch to find out.
