Smart lighting systems have the potential to close the gap between lighting control and building data analytics. Data captured by lighting systems – such as space occupancy – that was previously used only to control the lighting itself, can now be made available for additional services. The agility of wireless smart lighting systems removes previous […]

Devices that combine a number of sensory inputs – or engage a sense in an intuitive way – will be the way forward in creating more livable spaces with technology. New types of interfaces are appearing everywhere. Speech, haptics and gesture are becoming more common everyday – but what is the reason for this shift? […]
At the ISH 2019 EnOcean will be introducing new solar-powered, maintenance-free sensor modules for a wide range of building data that fit into classic switch frames based on the PTM modular switch system. Wireless sensors based on the EnOcean harvesting technology are the eyes and ears of the IoT, as they collect the required raw […]
Light might not be the first thing we consider when walking into a room, but it has a huge influence on how we feel in that space. Hannah Feldman, Content Manager at Senic GmbH, shows in her article that in the age of technology, we have more methods than ever before to improve our health, […]
LinkIO enables connected homes via Bluetooth® networks. The international company, located in the heart of “French Tech in the Alps”, follows the approach of simple, intuitive and affordable solutions to enable intelligently connected homes based on the Bluetooth® standard. True to its motto “Upscale to Smart Home!”, LinkIO has now integrated EnOcean’s self-powered Bluetooth® switches […]
Recently, we introduced the new “Battery-free by EnOcean” seal to highlight self-powered wireless switches. Why was there a need to create a dedicated seal for such products? It’s because of the unique experience of powering wireless communication solely with a finger tap. It’s also the freedom of being able to place the switch wherever you […]
For the first time EnOcean exhibited at Bluetooth World – and it was a great place to be. We experienced an inspiring knowledge exchange with leading manufacturers and experts from the Bluetooth SIG. There was a lot of excitement about our self-powered solutions for Bluetooth® lighting systems as they enable maintenance-free, ready-to-use control and data […]
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 […]
At one of the largest lighting trade shows, everything revolved around LED as the ever-present lighting source. However, an energy-efficient light is no longer the major demand; the market is heading toward human centric lighting. This makes our self-powered switch the perfect fit for personal control whereas maintenance-free sensors deliver the needed data for automation […]
Troy Davis is Sales Director at EnOcean Inc. In his job, he sees Bluetooth Low Energy Mesh for lighting control expanding rapidly. It is also a boon for battery makers, but in his article, Troy explains why there is a better way. The future looks very bright for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Mesh lighting control. […]
Get an impression of maintenance-free wireless solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and modern lighting in this video showing EnOcean at Light+Building 2018.
In this video, Matthias Kassner, our Vice President Product Marketing, explains how EnOcean enables energy harvesting wireless switches – no batteries, no wires – sending Zigbee green power signals to control e.g. Philips Hue lights.
