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? […]
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 […]
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.

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.
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 […]
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 […]
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.
