Five years ago, it was an industry buzzword: the Internet of Things (IoT). Analysts predicted billions of sensors would be connected to the Internet, delivering a tremendous amount of information from everywhere around us. IoT has already become reality, as foreseen by experts. However, it soon expects a spurt in growth through the rapidly increasing […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
John Corbett, Sales Director Northern Europe and Middle East at EnOcean, explains with the example of the Wienerberger e4 brick house™ the possibilities of self-powered sensors for an energy-saving, safe and comfortable smart home. Learn about several usage examples in this video.
