About us

We at XIThing believe that connecting the digital world to the physical world will create immense value. There’s an incredible amount of untapped value in “dumb” objects. The only reason it is still locked up is that technology hasn’t yet caught up yet to our imagination. With cheap microcontrollers and new wireless technologies, times are changing, and XIThing plans to be at the forefront of innovation for our customers, taking them to the next level.

At XIThing we help you reap the benefits of this revolution. Internet of Things systems can create and improve business processes in a unique and innovative way which give your company the edge it needs. We approach our projects using the AID methodology, which stands for Analyze, Imagine and Develop. We start by analyzing your business and process, to give you insight in what you do and where your business can benefit. We then apply our experience and creativity to imagine how these opportunies can be realized. And finally, we are also able to develop the systems to reap the benefits.


For XIThing it is trivial that if IoT is done right, it can deliver on the promise of a decentralized world of trust and security. A world where stakeholders decide what to share and with whom, without breaking the privacy of other stakeholders. The collateral damage from the vulnerability of overly centralized systems or cheap IoT can only be prevented it its done right from the start. It doesn't make sense anymore to just look at your own interests.
