Aqara announces a new curtain motor, we highlight new MagSafe accessories from Belkin and Mophie, Stephen plans his new home network and home theater setup, Andrew reviews the Wemo stage controller, and we answer listener questions in this week's episode of HomeKit Insider.

In HomeKit news this week, Aqara's new HomeKit curtain motor was revealed. It will glide along the rail, bringing your curtains in tow. It will require an Aqara hub but otherwise will support Apple HomeKit.

Eero also appears to have new products incoming with several Wi-Fi 6e routers making their way through the FCC.

We then go on a tangent talking about the recent new MagSafe devices coming to market, such as those from Belkin and Mophie.

Stephen then spends some time discussing his new house and his plans for blanketing his home in fast Wi-Fi.

To wrap up the episode we review the Belkin Wemo Stage now that it has been updated to support Thread.
