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 […]
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. […]
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.
Saara Guastella is Marketing Manager at Casambi Technologies Oy. In her article, she explains why “smart” lighting isn’t just about controlling lighting from your mobile phone. Despite the numerous obvious advantages, smart devices are only one part of the solution. Advantage of new technologies Today’s mobile electronic devices are incredible tools for controlling lighting. Intuitive […]
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 […]
