This tutorial video gives background information at a glance on the specifics of EnOcean-based solutions – for installers, specifiers, facility managers, system integrators and everyone who wants to learn more about the characteristics and benefits of self-powered wireless switches and sensors based on the EnOcean standard for more energy-efficient and intelligent buildings.  

This week, 200 representatives of the real estate industry and more than 1,000 participants discussed the future of our buildings at the Smart Buildings for Smart Cities Summer Universities in Lyon. This discussion is very close to many of the biggest social and environmental challenges of our time. These challenges include the demographic change with […]

At the first European Congress for Energy Efficiency and Digital Transition in Buildings, Eric Cassar, Architect at Arkehenspaces, explained how space sharing could solve the problems of an increasing demand for space and the cost explosion of housing in cities. The digital transition of buildings based on sensor data, enabling intelligent space usage, for example, […]

The transition from traditional lighting to LED lighting has triggered a wave of innovation that will establish lighting as an Internet of Things (IoT) backbone in the building. High node density coupled with readily available power supply make lighting fixtures ideal nodes of a connected wireless mesh network. Self-powered sensors play a key role to […]

In June 2018, the Ready2Services label was officially launched by the Smart Buildings Alliance in Paris. It aims to further advance the realization of intelligent buildings for smart cities, including new innovative service models. Self-powered wireless sensor solutions and the interoperable EnOcean ecosystem play a key role in this process of digitalization. The Ready2Services concept […]

This video gives an overview of the first “European Congress for Energy Efficiency and Digital Transition in Buildings”. The congress took place in the BGL BNP PARIBAS building in Luxembourg, a smart and energy-efficient building which uses over 2,000 self-powered sensors and switches based on the EnOcean wireless standard. The attendees shared multiple programs and […]

On May 17, the 1st European Conference on Energy Efficiency and Building Digital Transition took place in Luxembourg. Here, building industry experts and government representatives discussed with more than 200 attendees the possibilities of digitalization in buildings.

This year, the EnOcean Alliance celebrates its 10th anniversary. We spoke with Graham Martin, Chairman of the EnOcean Alliance, on the organization’s success story that started at Light+Building 2008, initiated by seven visionary companies.    Graham, what was the idea to form the EnOcean Alliance? The goal was to establish innovative automation solutions for sustainable buildings. There […]

André Diener ist Technischer Leiter des Innovation Centers openBerlin bei Cisco. Mit ihm sprachen wir kürzlich über das openBerlin und darüber, welche Vorteile der Einsatz der batterielosen EnOcean-Technologie für den Arbeitsalltag im Innovation Center bietet. Innovation war schon immer wichtig, aber in den wettbewerbsorientierten und sich stetig verändernden Märkten ist es heute essentiell für den […]

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 […]
