Product DescriptionWhat better way to start (or clean up) your smart home than with something as familiar as an outlet?! Swidget is made up of two elements, the Outlet and the Inserts. The Swidget Outlet is a 15Amp standard decora style outlet that is installed using the existing wiring in your home. When paired with a Swidget Insert, it allows you to make your home a smart home without any clutter. It is connected via flying leads with screw-type ground terminal, is tamper resistant for safety, and when paired with a Swidget Insert can control your appliances, lights, even your whole home, from anywhere. The Swidget Inserts work with existing smart home protocols, so you don't have to use anything new, like Wi-Fi, Z-Wave, ZigBee, etc. and work with voice-activated assistants, like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and IFTTT. The space-saving design doesn't cover or block either receptacle, giving you more room to utilize your Outlet efficiently. Swidget is an intuitive, easy set-up for users, allows modularity and has a one-year limited warranty.

Top ReviewsSmart Home made easy

I've now installed 8 of the wifi outlets and absolutely love them. Easy installation. Cut the power to the outlet at your junction box, install, power back up, pair the device using your phone, update the firmware with the app, calibrate and you're good to go. Had some initial challenges with my outlets disconnecting when my internet went down, but the latest firmware update appears to have corrected the problem. Haven't had any issues in several weeks. Looking forward to the new inserts. Motion sensors and video are at the top of my list.
My current setup:
#1. Office Lamp - using app scheduling feature
#2. Sump Pump - Set-up for automatic power-out notifications to my phone.
#3. Stereo / Alexa setup - Turns on Alexa during waking hours. Privacy!.
#4. Fountain - using timer feature and Alexa voice control to impress guests.
#5. Outdoor lighting - using IFTTT for dawn dusk control (Weather Underground)
#6. Kids Bedroom - using night light insert and it controls duct booster fan with IFTT connection to Nest
#7. Master Bedroom - Duct booster fan control with IFTTT connection to Nest
#8. Living Room Lamp - set to cycle using IFTTT triggers when out of town.
Unreliable with Z-wave, frustrating tamper resistance
by Jeremy Cooper (1 out of 5 stars)

I purchased this outlet together with the Z-wave insert, but found that the outlet had a mind of its own. It was difficult to command it to turn itself off, even when I used the manual control button to do so. Even worse, I found the unit turning itself on randomly, without being told to do so.
On top of this, the Tamper Resistant covers are frustratingly difficult to work with. The other Tamper Resistant outlets in my house are much easier to use. I have replaced it with a GE/Jasco outlet, and so far, that outlet works much better, is less frustrating to use, and is cheaper. I hope Swidget learns to improve their design, and I like the concept of a modular and upgradable system, but it just doesn't seem to be ready yet.
Future proof your smart home

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!
Very unique plug

I certainly like the flexibility of the plug. Great concept.
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.
Give it a try!

Would not Set Up. Changed phone and home router setting. Couldn't get passed register on phone.
Customer Support, was great. Offered to talk over phone to set up. But If I can't make it work, I am not going to call someone if and when it stops working.
Bought on Kick Starter might be a one off.
Great Idea give it a try.
