Everything is smart nowadays – from our phones, to our cars, and even our homes. The latter, however, can be a pain to get on the grid without a mess of ugly devices or additional wiring. With the new Swidget modular smart outlets, however, you can get all the perks of a connected smart home without the annoyances and drawbacks.
For starters, that’s because these devices work with your existing power grid – that means no extra wiring is necessary. They’re also compatible with all current intelligent personal assistants, like Alexa, Siri, Google, etc. All you have to do is plug them in and they’re good to go. What’s even better is they work modularly – meaning an outlet near the front door can house a motion sensor or camera while one by your bed can be equipped with a USB adapter for charging your phone. In fact, they are already offering 15 different plug-and-play modules that range from aroma therapy to a nightlight and are easily adapted to all future technologies, so you can customize your house as you see fit. You can back them on Kickstarter right now, starting at just $38.
