Xenio is an Internet of Things (IoT) platform and solutions company, with patented technologies that offer the mutually reinforcing benefits of Smart Lighting advances and support for key IoT applications. Xenio is designed for commercial public spaces like retail stores, hotels, entertainment venues, offices, health care facilities, and transportation hubs.

Our open platform and ecosystem partners are taking Smart Lighting further, faster – and making in-ceiling networks, riding on smart lighting infrastructure, a breakthrough approach to deploying and operating scalable IoT solutions. We help business leaders improve consumer experiences, make marketing more effective, increase safety and security, cut capital and operating costs, and save energy.  

Substantial resources have been invested to develop Xenio, starting in 2014. In 2016, we spun out of LED-innovator Bridgelux to best enable Xenio’s commercial launch and growth. We are based in San Francisco.
Our management team combines deep experience in IoT and its precursors, hardware/software product development, partnerships and ecosystem development, and the commercial LED lighting industry and technologies.
