Bringing IoT into the building at ISH 2019

15th February 2019

From March 11th to 15th, ISH visitors can view trends in modern bathroom design, sustainable heating and air conditioning technology as well as smart living. In this context, the EnOcean Alliance, along with its members and partners, will present applications for maintenance-free wireless sensor solutions for building digitalisation and smart homes based on the EnOcean wireless standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3-10).

This year's exhibit focuses on the very practical theme of ‘Big data in corporate real estate management’. On the ‘IoT Solutions Panel’, prominent companies will demonstrate hands-on examples of how EnOcean-based solutions can be implemented in corporate real estate management and the benefits that building operators can expect to gain.

IoT experts from Microsoft, T-Systems, Piepenbrock, Thing-it and IBM will report on current pilot projects for digitalising commercial business spaces. These presentations are exclusive to ISH and will take place from 10:00am to 4:00pm, respectively, at the EnOcean Alliance booth (Hall C60, Booth 10.3): Microsoft (March 11th), T-Systems (March 12th), Piepenbrock (March 13th), Thing-it (March 14th) and IBM (March 15th).

Another central topic is the amendment to the European building directive (EPBD), whose stated goal is to make all buildings within the EU CO2-neutral by 2050. The member states are called upon to adopt the necessary legal and administrative regulations by March 2020. The EPBD focuses explicitly on technical building equipment as well as on regulating and controlling these systems.

It imposes a series of stipulations on ‘self-regulating devices’ and ‘digitalisation of the energy system’ and for the first time mentions a ‘smartness indicator’, which is yet to be defined. The EnOcean Alliance experts explain what these requirements mean in the context of building automation and holistic energy-efficient operation and how future-oriented system solutions based on the EnOcean wireless standard can be implemented.

Not least, ISH visitors to the EnOcean Alliance joint booth can learn about the latest trends in the smart home as well as in lighting and window control. Experts explain the differences between smart products and smart homes. They also demonstrate how builders, tenants and administrators/property managers can benefit from professionally installed and maintenance-free system solutions with a view toward energy efficiency, comfort and security.

Representatives of the following companies will join the discussion: AFRISO-EURO-INDEX, BECKER Antriebe, BSC Computer, DEUTA Controls, Decelect, Digital Concepts, Eltako, EnOcean, Micropelt, Honeywell PEHA, LAE Engineering, Overkiz, PMDM Minebea and ViCOS. In addition, more than 30 other exhibitors will be showcasing EnOcean-based solutions at the trade show.

The EnOcean Alliance is a global network of more than 400 companies in the building sector. It develops innovative maintenance-free wireless solutions for sustainable building automation based on the EnOcean wireless standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3-10). More than one million buildings all over the world now have wireless networks of this type, making EnOcean the international reference technology when it comes to wireless standards for building automation.

The EnOcean ecosystem of self-powered wireless sensor solutions currently consists of 5,000 product variants that build on 1,500 basic products, with new ones being added all the time. Thanks to their standardised sensor profiles, the products can be combined with each other. These interoperable system solutions lower installation and maintenance costs and provide significant benefits when it comes to energy efficiency, security and comfort. In addition, the data generated with the aid of the self-powered wireless sensors can be integrated into IoT solutions (sensor to cloud).
