The interoperability of products from different vendors has been a core target from the very beginning when forming the EnOcean Alliance 10 years ago. Consequently following this high claim, the EnOcean wireless standard today is one of the leading technologies for smartly networked buildings and their digital transition on the route to the Internet of […]
Our 2nd tutorial video explains the energy harvesting technology from EnOcean which enables wireless switches and sensors to work without batteries. Learn about the technology’s benefits and the wide range of applications for smart buildings using the EnOcean standard.
In early September, the EnOcean Alliance together with eight of its members attended Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT), one of the largest shows for smart buildings in China. It was an impressive platform giving a great insight into the latest industry trends in this region. No doubt, China’s building industry is booming. However, similar to […]
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 […]
Today, I would like to refer to an article published on LinkedIN Pulse. It discusses how the shift of lighting to LEDs, the return of Direct Current and the progressing digitalization in buildings become cornerstones of the 3rd industrial revolution: “…The concomitant replacement of traditional lighting by LEDS in buildings combined with the one of […]
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. It emerged that this is the great opportunity and absolute necessity for energy savings at a large scale. […]
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 […]
