company

Axius is a smart home management and support technology startup based in San Francisco, California that provides security, monitoring and support for homeowners’ IoT devices.[1]

History

Axius was founded by Colin Barceloux and incorporated in 2017.[2][3] The company received initial funding from angel investors and venture capitalists including Maveron and Stanford’s StartX.[4][5]

Axius launched its smart home management system, the Axius Sense, in May 2017,[6][7][8] which connects to the homeowner’s router, secures and monitors every device in the home.[2] In September 2017, the company announced it would work with property managers and building developers to build smart homes "from the ground up", pre-integrated with the Axius Sense.[9][10][11][2] It started operating its pilot programs in New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and San Francisco.[12]

In August 2017, Axius launched its remote monitoring and management system called Axius Pro based on hardware from Domotz.[13][14]

Axius partnered with custom electronics installers, or AV Pros help them install and service connected devices such as thermostats, lighting, locks and cameras.[12]

Partnerships

In late 2017, Axius partnered with Akita and signed an agreement to provide support for its IoT security device.[15][16] In January 2018, Akita raised over $884,254 through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.[17] It raised $966,528 from another crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.[18]
