We play nice with any device
Our simple client libraries work with the most popular devices such as the Adafruit Feather Huzzah, ESP8266, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and more.
Built from the ground up to be easy to use
We do the hard work so you can focus on the fun stuff.
The same API that drives our user interface is available to you. We provide documentation so you can build a library in your favorite language to talk to IO, or use one of ours.
It’s Your Data
The data you store with IO is yours to manage and control. You can download it all anytime and we will never sell or give it away to another company. We feel strongly enough about this that we put it in our IoT Bill of Rights.
Data won’t help you make better decisions or understand the world you’re living in unless you can see it. Charts, graphs, gauges, logging, and more are available from anywhere in our carefully designed web-based dashboards.
Private & Secure
We won’t share your account information with anyone without your permission and everything you store on Adafruit IO is private by default, whether you’re a paying customer or not.
We’ve written a lot more about Adafruit IO than just our web API. Teaching is at the heart of Adafruit, and our Learning System has all the projects and guides you need to get started or to level up!
Keep yourself and your systems up to date by automatically responding to changes. Triggers monitor your data to notify you when your temperature sensor gets too hot or when your DIY security system goes offline.
We have been building Internet of Things devices and kits since long before Adafruit IO ever existed. Start your project with the right equipment or pick up the one last thing you need to finish. We’ve got hardware for all types of makers.
We Love Makers! Join us on the forums, on our Discord chat server, stop by the weekly Show and Tell live stream to share your project, and subscribe to our YouTube channel to see what we’re up to.
Our pricing is as simple as our API

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
