The Internet of Things, or IoT, has been a popular phrase in business over the last few years, with the number of IoT solution providers growing faster than ever. In his article, Peter Smith, UK Technical Sales Manager at EnOcean, discusses the best way for them to establish in this cross-industry market. First of all: […]

Recently, the Korea Electronics Association (KEA), the Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI) and the EnOcean Alliance officially signed a MOU on the promotion of the self-powered Internet of Things (IoT) in Korea. This shows the unstoppable international spread of energy harvesting wireless solutions for the IoT – the only way to realize trillions of connected […]

Joern Ploennigs is Research Scientist & Manager for cognitive IoT for buildings and environment at IBM Research – Ireland. In his article, he explains the transition from intelligent to cognitive buildings. Cognitive buildings are the next generation of sustainable building systems as they automatically integrate, analyse and learn from the vast amount of IoT generated […]

EnOcean will market its complete product portfolio of energy harvesting wireless modules and white label products with EnOcean wireless technology on the sub 1 GHz band and for use in ZigBee and BLE systems on the 2.4 GHz frequency band under the brand name “Dolphin – Self-powered IoT by EnOcean.” Networked devices form the basis […]

Beacons are special transmitters that emit short wireless telegrams in the briefest possible time intervals – much like a lighthouse. The use of these transmitters has been growing rapidly for a number of years now. As the number of beacons in the Internet of Things (IoT) increases, so does the demand for self-powered, maintenance-free solutions. […]

Easy and cost-effective The EnOcean Switch Design Kit (ESDK) is aimed primarily at the maker community. Makers need attractive prototypes that can be produced as quickly as possible with the least amount of effort. While the implementation of a housing used to require a design expert and an outlay of several tens of thousands of […]

For centuries, people have been looking for ways to store electrical energy so that it can be used later on. While batteries offer a way to do this, they also have many weaknesses. Energy harvesting, on the other hand, uses sources of energy that are available in the immediate surroundings, anywhere and anytime. This technology […]

What is the Internet of Things (IoT)? The lauded Internet of Things consists of everything, billions and even trillions of communicating devices, connecting and networking together. What will connect? The easier question is, what won’t connect? Society today wants their things to work together – seamlessly and simply – to make their life better. Imagine […]

Battery-less: A better way forward The challenges associated with battery-dependent wireless devices, discussed in “Powering the Internet of Wireless Things – Part 1”, threaten the growth of wireless sensor networks and open the door to EnOcean energy harvesting wireless technology. Designed to harness their power from their surrounding environment, energy harvesting devices are self-powered and […]
