Swidget have this week taken to Kickstarter to raise funds to help take their new smart home outlet which supports all platforms into manufacture and is now available to back with pledges starting from just $38.
The development team are looking to raise $40,000 over the next 37 days thanks to their new smart outlet which eliminates clutter by hiding your smart home technology out of sight. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Swidget and its features
Swidget is made up of two elements, the Swidget outlet and inserts. Many of the Swidget inserts can be used on their own, like a nightlight or USB charger, or they can connect to an ever-growing number of systems via WiFi, Z-Wave or ZigBee protocols. This allows you to connect Swidget to your existing array of smart home products. Alternatively, you can start your smart home automation with Swidget, and choose whatever platform you’d like to use in your home.
Swidget functionality is enabled by snapping in an insert, which can be controlled by your smart phone or tablet through an app, or your existing smart home hub. Typically the app is tied to a specific insert, function, platform or protocol, such as Smartthings, Nest, Google Home, Alexa, and others.
Whether you are an early adopter, a smart home enthusiast, or new to the smart home scene, the beauty of Swidget is that it can work for everyone. The Swidget outlet is simple and familiar, operating as a normal electrical outlet until a Swidget insert brings it to life. It works with all commonly used protocols and is compatible with an ever-growing list of applications/technologies. It is easy to install and will work into the future by swapping inserts in and out as your needs or technology change.
