Smart World

Things around us are becoming increasingly connected. "Dumb" devices are becoming smarter as they gain the ability to interact with the Internet. Onion is at the forefront of this movement. We provide a platform that makes it easy for hardware companies to create and manage connected devices. We allow hardware companies to focus their energy and resources on their strength - designing, manufacturing and distributing hardware products.

You are at the forefront of something that could be a huge part of the future.

Onion provides a hardware + cloud platform that make it quick, easy and economical to connect anything to the web.

Onion Connect

The Onion Connect is a set of firmware libraries that allows Internet-connected devices to integrate with the Onion Cloud. Popular platforms such as the Arduino and RaspberryPi are supported.

Onion Cloud

The Onion Cloud is the bridge that allows devices to interact with each other and with third-party webservices. It also enables devices to delegate computationally intensive tasks to the cloud.

Onion App SDK

The Onion App SDK makes it easy to build mobile & web applications to interact with the connected devices. It enables a simple, consistent end-user experience across multiple products.

Superior ROI

Save millions of dollars in operating expenses and capital expenses across your full IoT product lifecycle, compared to trying to do it all in-house.
