Agile and Innovative

12 years on, still self-owned and still turning a profit

Founded and profitable since 2006, Seluxit helps large customers take IoT from hype to reality. According to a recent survey from Cisco, 75% of IoT projects fail. But our track record is 0% failed projects. These projects include 1,5 million deployed units for Innogy SmartHome, a smart-garden solution for Gardena of Husqvarna Group with tens of thousands of deployed units, and a smart-meter project for Innogy that will exceed 6,5 million units. Our experience with these large-scale IoT projects has molded our field-tested reference products. This means that we’ve already done 80% of your IoT work for you.
