About Us

Much like Frankenstein, we started life as a bit of an experiment

Apilio V1.0 was created by Philipp Ebneter back in 2015. Device connectivity was exploding with the proliferation of IoT products, but co-founder Philipp very quickly became frustrated at the lack of interoperability between different systems. Why couldn’t he use the noise sensor of his smart thermostat as a simple home security system? Switching it on and off from his Apple Watch? Frustration soon turned to creativity and so Apilio was born, first as an experiment to automate the Ebneter household, but then other people started hearing about the software and wanted to use it in their own homes and businesses. And so Apilio incorporated in the Fall of 2018 to help develop the software into the world’s best Logic-as-a-Service (LaaS) platform.

Behind the scenes

Apilio Limited is incorporated in the UK with much of the development work undertaken in Switzerland. Officially the team is based at the ZHAW Zürcher Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften runway incubator but frequently the team works from home to reduce carbon emissions and strike a good balance between making a great product and having great lives.
