MINIMALIST DESIGN

Add technology, not clutter

With Swidget’s sleek design, you can fit your smart home technology right into your Switch. It won’t take up space on your counter, tabletop, or protrude from one of the receptacles. It gives you back both receptacles and allows you to fit furniture right against the wall. The technology, like a video camera, speaker, voice assistant, or emergency light is hidden in your Switch.

FUTURE PROOF YOUR HOME

Change Inserts, not outlets

Install your Swidget Switch once, and as technology or needs change, just swap out the Insert without having to re-wire or re-install the Switch. Wi-Fi Control Inserts work with Alexa and Google Assistant.

PLATFORM AGNOSTIC

One device, all platforms

Wi-Fi? Z-Wave? Zigbee? Now you don’t have to choose an exclusive smart home platform before you outfit your house only to change your mind later. Swidget has the ability to accept all smart home platforms, available now and in the future. The possibilities are endless. 

WORKS WITH ALEXA & GOOGLE ASSISTANT

Control Your Switch With Your Voice

Voice assistants are all the rage these days and can make your life a lot easier. Simply “Ask Alexa” to turn on/off your lights that are connected with a Wi-Fi Control Insert.

SWIDGET APP

Your smart home at your fingertips

Control your smart home with the free Swidget App for iOS or Android. Set schedules, get notifications, and monitor power consumption all in one place.

Easy installation according to my electrician. The nice thing is that now I can swap out the module between the plugs for whatever I want—without having to shut off the fuse or call an electrician. When technology changes, there’s no need for a new plug—just grab a new module and switch it out yourself!

Smart plug that doesn't look smart

Smart plug that doesn't look smart. I just received my Swidget outlet and Wifi insert from backing the product on Kickstarter. I received three of them and have installed one so far. Was easy to install, as easy as a single pole smart light switch. Setting up an account was a breeze. Linking the device to the network was a breeze. Getting the device into Google assistant was a breeze. Minus 1 star because the color of the wifi insert doesn't exactly match the rest of the outlet, but hard to tell once items are plugged into the outlet.
