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 […]
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 […]
Christian Bach and Alan Tejeda, both Application Engineers at EnOcean GmbH, show in their article how OEMs find the right EnOcean product for different applications. EnOcean is synonymous with energy harvesting wireless technology, offering modules and finished products under the brands Dolphin and Easyfit for batteryless applications in the Internet of Things. They are used […]
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 […]
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 […]
Smart buildings are becoming more prevalent with IoT technology complimenting, and in some cases, replacing current building management systems (BMS). The deep networking ability of cloud-based IoT platforms and self-powered, maintenance-free sensors that can flexibly be placed everywhere in a facility, even on furniture, provide real-time insight into a building’s condition and technical health. This […]
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 […]
