About Us

Why the Internet of Things needs our company Lemonbeat

Lemonbeat GmbH, based in Dortmund, Germany, was established in October 2015, and is a 100% subsiduary of innogy SE (RWE Group) — one of Europe’s largest utility companies with many years of experience in Smart Home applications.

Key to  our cross-industry IoT offerings is Lemonbeat smart Device Language (LsDL), an innovative framework that enables the direct independent interaction between different devices, thus reducing the reliance on costly „translation“ which usually takes place in cloud services or gateways.  The language can be used in combination with common cable or wireless IP-based communication protocols, as well as offering APIs to many common platforms.

As a company we are part of the following organisations:
