Self-powered wireless sensor solutions bringing intelligence to light
At Lighting Fixture Design Conference, 20th-21st June, London, EnOcean, aims to demonstrate how self-powered wireless solutions provide sensor data for IoT and lighting networks to bring intelligence to light.
Visitors will be able to experience self-powered wireless switches and sensors for maintenance-free sensor solutions for IoT and modern lighting systems based on open standards. Offering these solutions, EnOcean’s OEM customers are able to focus on the evolving LED market opportunities. Self-powered wireless solutions also help optimise the utilisation of buildings, create new service models and make buildings more flexible, more energy-efficient and altogether more cost-effective.
Andreas Schneider, CEO and Founder, EnOcean stated: ”There is a huge momentum on smart lighting to become the data backbone for the Internet of Things (IoT) and many other intelligent services. This makes our self-powered switch the perfect fit for personal control which allows our maintenance-free sensors to deliver the data needed for automation depending on the current situation. Therefore, energy harvesting technology becomes a key component to enable future-oriented intelligent lighting and IoT solutions. In close collaboration with strong partners, we will continue developing wireless, easy to install, maintenance-free applications for modern lighting control and IoT systems based on our proven energy harvesting technology.”
Maintenance-free wireless sensor solutions based on the EnOcean wireless standard in the sub 1GHz band have been established for use in LED lighting control. The self-powered wireless standard aims to provide a maintenance-free system for controlling LED lighting solutions.
EnOcean will also be presenting LED controls for Bluetooth lighting control systems in 2.4GHz based on the energy harvesting technology. The self-powered and wireless Easyfit Bluetooth switches with Near Field Communication (NFC) allow simple or complex lighting scenes and effects.
Furthermore, at the event, EnOcean will present the prototypes of solar-based sensors for Bluetooth lighting systems, for example, a door and window sensor, a temperature/moisture sensor, an occupancy sensor and a light sensor.
EnOcean has partnered with Philips to develop self-powered lighting solutions for Zigbee systems on the 2.4GHz band, for use in consumer and commercial LED lighting systems. Additionally, EnOcean with partener Aurora, will be demonstrating a common solution for controlling Zigbee lighting systems using EnOcean´s self-powered wireless switches in 2.4GHz.
On the second day of the conference, visitors to Lighting Fixture Design Conference are invited to join Matthias Kassner, VP Product Marketing at EnOcean, in his key note speech on how to provide sensor data for lighting networks for bringing intelligence to light.
At the event, EnOcean will also be presenting self-powered wireless switches and sensors that provide reliable data to IoT systems, such as temperature, humidity, occupancy/non-occupancy and light level.
EnOcean is also in close collaboration with IBM to further develop self-powered wireless solutions with EnOcean radio standard in sub 1GHz for the IoT. In conjunction with IoT systems, self-powered EnOcean-based sensors aim to enable maintenance-free solutions for Real Estate Management to increase operational, financial and environmental performance of facilities. These solutions will have potential to be used in asset management, ambient assisted living projects, insurance or hotel and campus projects, giving maintenance-free wireless switches and sensors based on EnOcean technology.
