The EMDC sensor monitors illumination, motion, and space utilization

With the introduction of the new EnOcean EMDC motion and activity sensor family, users can now monitor room occupancy, light levels, and people’s activities seamlessly through a single self-powered sensor. This breakthrough marks a significant advancement in smart building technology. This latest innovation will make an appearance at the EnOcean booth at Light & Building […]

Retrofits for Energy-Efficient Buildings are easy to achieve with EnOcean technology

The European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) mandates the modernization of a large number of buildings within a relatively short timeframe. However, implementing traditional structural improvements like insulation or extensive renovations is challenging. In this context, enhancing, or retrofitting building automation systems proves to be the only reasonable option for meeting legal requirements. In […]

The rapid evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the way we live and work. It offers businesses opportunities to become more efficient, productive, and environmentally responsible. Buildings play a significant role in global CO2 emissions. IoT technology is the key to reducing their carbon footprint. One of the most promising features of […]

Heating is more than just a comfort; it’s a necessity, especially when the temperature dips. However, the way we approach heating can have significant implications for our energy consumption and sustainability goals. In most homes, the heating is ideally turned down during the daytime when family members are away, and the windows are only opened […]

What is a smart building?

For thousands of years, humanity has built and lived in non-“smart” buildings, and it worked well throughout history. So why do we need to switch to smart buildings now, and what does that mean? Make buildings smart for an ecological transition Firstly, there is the issue of climate change and the urgent need to stop […]

smart building technologies

Building sustainability has become a major priority for leading companies across the globe, and smart building technologies are playing a key role in delivering timely carbon-neutral and sustainability strategies. Buildings are responsible for about 40% of global CO2 emissions, and with the urgent need to meet United Nations climate goals, it’s necessary to make them […]

self-powered sensors for Industry 4.0 and IIoT

Sensors are a crucial component of industrial production, providing vital data for quality control, process monitoring, and automation. With the increasing digitization of industries, the scope of sensor applications has grown exponentially. Additionally, sustainability has become a driving force for Industry 4.0 projects and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), EnOcean’s wireless and self-powered sensors […]

sustainable buildings

The unchecked CO2 emissions combined with the current energy crisis make the massive need for action clear: We have to conserve energy! Buildings play a central role in this respect, as they account for 40% of the global consumption of primary energy sources, primarily gas and coal. 99% of buildings are existing structures, and it […]

Industry 4.0 saves energy.

In recent months and years, there have been so many things that most of us would never have thought possible: the never-ending COVID-19 pandemic, faltering supply chains, high inflation, and the war in Ukraine. Many previous political beliefs and economic concepts are being reconsidered in light of these events and are currently under scrutiny. More […]

building 4.0 for energy-efficiency

If the world has always been faced with multiple challenges, it seems that in recent years everything is accelerating, and we are more than ever facing major problems. Without going into detail, I believe that changes in demography, climate change or health crisis do already result in economic and social shifts. In my opinion, digitization […]
