In 1984, Mikael Karlsson, Martin Gren and Keith Bloodworth founded Axis aiming at changing the way people use and think about digital devices. That marked the beginning of our commitment to create a smarter, safer world. At the time, the idea of using network technology to connect devices (originally network print, storage and scanner servers) and turn them intelligent was new. We called it ThinServer Technology. Today, it’s known as the Internet of Things (IoT).
