Our tech

All of the best tech is both powerful and effortless, right? We think so too. That’s why we’ve built a stress free plug-in-and-go solution.

We do all of the hard work for you, so once you’ve connected to your network and amplifier you’ll have the full power of Studio - our atmosphere curation platform - at your fingertips. Studio is a flexible, ultra-reliable and cloud hosted software platform that's designed to manage the consistency (and quirks) across a whole retail or hospitality estate.

Whether you’re after full atmospheric control or automated atmosphere management, our lightweight, eco-friendly hardware and industry-leading software have got your back.
