DeviceRadio was founded in 2016 by Christian Klemetsson, who was disappointed with the IoT solutions on the market when he wanted to monitor his houseplants. Christian created his own radio protocol specifically for IoT, with key features such as encryption and plug and play. Winning $10,000 in components in a Silicon Labs/Digi-Key competition and receiving positive feedback and media attention, Christian started DeviceRadio with the intention to solve the problems he found in IoT development.

Since then DeviceRadio has gone through the Eon :Agile accelerator program and received numerous awards and accolades, most recently winning the Swedish Embedded Award 2017.
