Portland-based startup 38 Zeros has raised a $800,000 funding round to help fuel growth of its hardware/software solution that helps energy service companies manage and secure data from “Internet of Things” devices in a given building.

The two-year-old startup sells data-logging hardware that pairs with a cloud-based software platform which helps companies that monitor information from devices inside buildings like utility meters, HVAC systems, rooftop units, temperature sensors, and more.

The Cloudlogger device.

“Our customers fall into a few categories, but they are all companies that are connected to smart commercial/industrial buildings in some way, whether a building or energy services firm, a manufacturer, or a financing company,” said Zac Wheeler, 38 Zeros CEO and founder. “We provide hardware-enabled software-as-a-service connectivity and cloud services to enable our customers to pursue new business and streamline their operations.”

The company sells a hardware device called the CloudLogger, which crunches cellular data and sends it to a cloud-based dashboard. 38 Zeros differentiates from its competition by offering fast installation and “incredibly affordable” hardware coupled with a secure cloud database.

The $800,000 round came primarily from Oregon-based angel investors. 38 Zeros, which employs 11, was previously in Portland’s Amplify incubator.
