ZemiSmart, a company known for its involvement in Zigbee and WiFi, is increasing its investments in cutting-edge technology. This fact is proven by the launch of their Smart Matter Hub M1 that comes with a Thread Border Router, taking strides towards the updated smart home norms.
In addition, ZemiSmart is now accepting preorders for their latest invention, the Matter over Thread Roller Shade Motor. Comparable to a product by Motion Blinds, this semi-retrofit answer offers an upgrade to traditional blinds. However, unlike similar products that require control of a beaded chain or attachment to the wall, it is housed within the current roller shade tube, which needs to be 36-38mm in diameter.
The tube motor comes with a 5000mAh battery that is rechargeable via a USB-C port located at the motor's end, offering 30rpm and a rated torque of 1NM. Although battery life between charges is not specified, it is expected to last between 4-6 months before requiring a recharge.
This innovation is compatible with all four smart home platforms and owing to the Thread protocol, all that is needed is a Matter controller and a Thread Border Router in your household for adequate connectivity and functioning. Luckily, current Apple Home Hubs such as Apple TV4K (3rd gen & 4th gen/128GB), HomePod Mini, and HomePod (2nd gen) can serve as both a Matter controller and a Thread Border Router. Alternatively, ZemiSmart's M1 hub can fill this capacity as well.
You can place a preorder directly from ZemiSmart’s own store now with a promotional price of US$79.80 (40% off). Additionally, you can get an extra 15% discount using the code ZMVIP15 from now until the end of Nov 24th (PST). ZemiSmart has announced a shipping date of December 25th, ensuring that while it may not be a Christmas gift, it certainly provides post-holiday savings.
