Have an idea for a Swidget Insert? Or have a smart home technology/device you’d like to create an in-wall application for?
We want to encourage you and those awesome ideas, so we’ve created a development kit for Swidget Developers. After all, there are approximately 40 billion outlets in North America and 27,000,000 new outlets installed annually. Shouldn’t your technology be in those outlets?
What’s in the kit?
An assortment of test cables is included with the kit, that easily allows you to connect with other development kits.
USB Power Monitor
So that you can monitor the power being used by your prototype, a USB voltage and current monitor is included.
This 5V power supply provides the same 2A capability as the Swidget outlet.
Swidget Outlet Simulation Board
Utilizing the identical interface (electrically and mechanically) as the Swidget outlet, this board simulates all the inputs and outputs available. This board can both be powered by a computer’s USB port directly, or from an external power supply.
Blank Test Inserts
When you’re ready to take the next prototype steps, we’ve included Blank Test Inserts complete with the interface circuit board and the Insert housing to allow you to test your design on the Simulation Board, or in an Outlet, while providing you with access to key internal test signals.
Printed circuit board layouts and Insert housing CAD files are provided as part of the kit to allow you to easily create your Insert.
