About Smart HMI

Nothing is as strong as an idea whose time has come.” (Victor Hugo)

The market success of smart devices is obvious. They are increasingly becoming the focus of automation and machine construction companies. The HTML5 standard also provides the appropriate technology to realize top-quality HMIs across multiple platforms.

Automation specialist Egbert Gunia and HMI expert Andreas Beu recognized this trend at an early stage. Together with User Interface Design GmbH, they founded Smart HMI GmbH in 2013 with the vision of bringing together automation and web technology to develop a new generation of HMI systems that meets the future needs of Industry 4.0 and IoT in the industrial market.
