I am planning on automating some blinds and curtains I have around the house, and I’m interested in purchasing both the Aqara Blinds as well as the Curtains. Of course, these both work using the Aqara Hub, however just as I’ve already done with the Aqara motion, door and humidity sensors I would like to connect them directly to Home Assistant without the Aqara Hub using a Conbee II.
Some alternatives are the Zemismart WiFi devices, and in the case of the blinds I can always get a dumb Zemismart motor and hook it up to a Shelly 2.5. However, given that I already have plenty of Aqara sensors, the consistency of having Aqara curtains and blinds would be a bonus.
Unfortunately I can’t find a lot of information on these devices. From my research, it seems that smart curtains and blinds still have a long way to go, and are definitely not as mature as smart lighting/switches. Does anyone know if connecting these devices will be possible?
Curtain (A1 model since I don’t need a battery, but B1 is also an option): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001453903851.html
Thanks in advance.
