About us

Hakisa SAS is a simplified joint-stock company registered under French law with a capital of 332,500 Euros. The company was founded in Strasbourg in 2011 by Eric Gehl and Olivier Audouze. Thanks to its innovative solutions, Hakisa has already established an important partner ecosystem in Europe and is looking forward to extending technological as well as commercial alliances at a worldwide level.


Our mission

Offer an innovative & easy to use technology that bridges people, services and the Internet of Things.




We socialize the Internet of Things

We believe that the really smart technologies are technologies that include human interpretation and interactions. Therefore, our innovation pushes relevant information to a private community of concerned people.


The Hakisa solutions reinforce social link between IoT professionals, those who use connected devices, their families and caretakers.


Hakisa allows professionals to socialize their connected objects to ensure well-being at home for their clients of every age.





The whole company is organized to suit the needs of our clients and users. We facilitate feedbacks and include suggestions in our product development.

Team involvement

The whole team (Management, Marketing, R&D) works closely together to build the best possible solution for our clients. We attach great importance to the involvement and suggestions from our employees.

Simple & user-friendly

We try to apply the adage to keep it simple but not simplistic! This often is complicated and we are working hard to make our solution easy to use! We also attach great importance to user-friendliness and the well-being of our users, clients and employees.

Respect of our client's privacy

Unlike other platforms, we respect the privacy of our users and are committed to remove their account data whenever they want to. Also, Hakisa does not allow search engines (such as google, bing, etc.) to index personal data of our users.


In order to maximize our social impact, it is essential that our solution is accessible to the greatest number. That is why we have imagined and developed a low cost solution and even free basic services.


Innovate or perish! No choice for a startup… Thus, we work a lot (sometimes outside the box) and use the latest technologies (cloud computing, HTML5, Responsive Design, etc.), in order to offer an innovative solution that remains easy to use for our users and clients.
