What we're about

Welcome to Perth’s #1 Emerging Technology Community. We cover Internet of Things from data driven business models using machine learning AI right down to the technical sensors and actuators deployed in the field.

We are focused on future-proofing Western Australia by learning and creating together. Our events encourage open collaboration, sharing of knowledge and ideas, and we don’t just talk – we deliver!


The Perth IoT Community is like no other meetup. We motivated 57 volunteers to deliver an award-winning transformational project winning the national 2018 Australian Computer Society “Digital Disruptor” award.

We’ve worked together to build a free to use Internet of Things communications network that is now gathering sensor data.

We’ve driven smart city initiatives by working with local councils, universities, and farmers to deliver real solutions with real benefits.

We’ve recently launched the world’s first Certified IoT Professional accreditation course that meets globally recognised ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 standard. Visit:
