If you’ve been playing around with home automation for quite a while now, you probably have a pile of tech clutter in your home.
An Alexa speaker in your living room. The Nest thermostat in your bedroom. The sensor that you want to connect with your thermostat hanging somewhere. The outlets that you need to plug them in.
You get the picture.
Well, a company called Swidget do too, that’s why they invented the Swidget Outlet.
It looks like your ordinary outlet, but it has a secret insert which allows it to work with all types of smart home devices. It can be a USB outlet today, an in-wall Bluetooth speaker later or a motion detection sensor tomorrow.
Here’s a video so you don’t have to have a hard time figuring how it works.
The Swidget Outlet is awesome, right?
It’s like a magic outlet that provides the smart home function that you need as of the moment. Any Swidget outlet can be:
- Alexa repeater
- Outlet control
- Motion sensor
- Emergency light
- Power monitor
- USB charger
- Automatic timer
- Mood lighting
- Aromatherapy insert
- Temp/Humi sensor
- White noise speaker
- Carbon Monoxide sensor
- And more!
With a flexible outlet like Swidget, you don’t have to worry about the long-term setup of your room, especially if you’re just renting the apartment.
Swap the smart home insert as your needs — and the technology — change.
Thankfully, Swidget has successfully secured its goal on Kickstarter. We’ll be seeing more of it in action by September 2017. And it’s so affordable at only $50 for a Swidget outlet and a customized insert.
