The Aqara Roller Shade Driver E1 is a retrofit roller shade controller that does not require a complicated installation and can work with your existing Roller Shade by operating the beaded cord.
It does not require dedicated wiring and can run both wirelessly from the built-in battery or being plugged into a power supply via the provided USB Type-C cable.

Just screw the device to the wall, attach the adapter, insert the beaded cord of your roller shade, and you’re ready to be connected.

Enjoy the benefits of the fastest, most stable, and battery-efficient smart home technology. Better stability and compatibility (more standardized protocol), longer support, and more features. 

Thanks to Aqara and Zigbee battery-saving technologies, industry-leading battery life can be achieved. You don't need to worry about charging the device every few weeks.
Calculated on the basis of rolling and unrolling the roller shade of 1.8m x 1.8m once a day.

You can choose between two installation modes: wired fixed or wireless portable.
For both charging or powering the device constantly, a future proof USB Type-C port is used.


The Motion Sensor located at the top of your bed will detect when you are going to bed and will trigger the Roller Shade Driver E1 to close your roller blinds to make your sleep more comfortable.

Roller shades will roll up automatically by the schedule.

On weekday mornings, the roller shades will roll up right before you wake up in order to make it more pleasant.
At the same time, they will be kept down during the weekends so you can sleep a little later.
