Imont has re-designed the IoT platform from first principles.

We use a decentralized architecture, with software embedded in the hub or device — removing the need for a central cloud platform.  Adding support for new devices is a breeze with our device driver framework.

Watch the video for more details from our CTO, Romanas Sonkinas.

Cloudless IoT

Most smart home service providers start with the cloud and as customer numbers grow, the cloud costs soon spiral out of control.

Imont’s software has a tiny footprint and can sit in most smart home hubs. It operates without cloud support — saving the costs of running a cloud platform and the hardware cost of over-specified hubs.

Everything runs locally giving instant response times, strong privacy and security, and high reliability.


Cloudless and Hubless for device makers

Why ship a smart home hub with your device when the hub software can be inside the device itself?  Save the cost of a dedicated hub and simplify your users' experience.  

Imont's highly efficient use of resources means it fits in unused space on the device, and adds hardly any load to the onboard processor. Embed our hub software in any wifi or networked device: camera, set-top-box, TV, speaker, wifi router, light switch, wall socket... whatever you want to connect.


Imont collaborates closely with partners to bring our solutions to life.

Imont launches Imont Consulting!

Imont's team are highly experienced in delivering IoT solutions.  We have significant expertise and experience in scaling and operating systems which support large estates of devices, both cloud-based, and, of course, with our own highly scalable cloudless technology.

Whether you're starting a project,  want to bootstrap a team, need a technical review of an ongoing project, scaling your system to the next level, or simply planning your strategy to enter the world of IoT, Imont can help.  

Get the benefit of our team's deep knowledge of the various underlying technologies, and also the competitive landscape to guide you through the maze of options to success.

Contact us about your consultancy needs today to get expert, independent insight and solutions you can trust.


Imont was formed in 2016 by the team who built the Hive smart home platform. The team's mission is to fix the business model for IoT by getting rid of the cost of cloud infrastructure. Cloud services cost cents to begin with but become a significant cost at scale. Consumers are often reluctant to pay a subscription for connected services, leaving device vendors & service providers to carry the cloud infrastructure costs for the lifetime of the device or service.  

There is a better way and that's why we started Imont. Our distributed architecture means devices run themselves without the need for a central cloud and its ongoing costs. Data stays in the home, making it inherently more secure and responsive.

It's a revolution in the way things get connected.

Now, meet the team!
