Unmatched Power Efficiency

Helium OS is optimized for high-speed wake up and low power deep sleep, automatically managing network performance and battery life.

Long Range without the Cost

Devices built with Helium can communicate miles in open terrain and several city blocks to the nearest gateway. No more expensive cell plans needed.

Powerful Development Tools

With tools such as Helium Script, providing edge programmability and hardware abstractions, deployments can be up and running in minutes to get instant insights to your devices and the environment.

How does Helium compare?

There are seemingly hundreds of IoT Developer Platforms available today - but how many actually hold up in real world usage? When choosing a platform it's important to consider the unknown costs and hassle of subscriptions, power management (we hate changing batteries!) and radio reliability.
