There’s more to it than just turning off and on #smartlighting
Installed using your existing wiring, the Swidget smart-ready Switch is a customizable switch specifically designed for lighting and fan applications. Snap in one of our Inserts for additional smart home functionality without the added clutter.
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.
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.
