It Began with an Idea
iDevices was founded six years ago with the launch of iGrill as one of the first app-enabled products to ever hit the market. iGrill would bring cooking to a whole new level and soon earned an engaged and passionate fan base including worldwide influencers such as Facebook Founder, Mark Zuckerberg.
The iDevices Evolution
The iGrill acquisition will allow iDevices to focus even more heavily on becoming a leader in the home automation market. iDevices' growing line of Wi-Fi® and HomeKit-enabled products, available in Lowe's®, The Home Depot®, Apple Store® and on Amazon®, now includes the iDevices Switch, Outdoor Switch and Thermostat. Four new products were recently announced: Socket, Wall Switch, Dimmer Switch and Wall Outlet.
iDevices is fueled by a growing team of 70+ employees between Avon, CT and Cupertino, CA with deep expertise spanning Electrical/Software Engineering, App Development, UX/UI and Cloud Architecture. All employees will remain with iDevices following the product line acquisition.
