Panasonic Offers Swidget Smart Controls

Panasonic now offers an end-to-end smart home ventilation solution as the exclusive distributor of Swidget smart controls in the electrical and HVAC distribution channels in the U.S. and Canada. Swidget devices can be paired with most of Panasonic's portfolio of ventilation solutions, including its Whisper ventilation fans and its energy recovery ventilators (ERVs). Swidget inserts fit directly into Swidget outlets or switches and are interchangeable, allowing customers to create a customized, flexible, modular solution. Swidget devices are then programmed to work with Panasonic's ventilation systems as the inserts detect changes in temperature, humidity, air quality, and motion and then turn the ventilation solutions on or off based on levels of these detections, as programmed. A mobile app gives homeowners the ability to control home air quality from anywhere, while also providing energy efficiency information such as power consumption, cost, and scheduling.
