CES 2018: Self-powered IoT sensors for Bluetooth® and EnOcean wireless sensor networks
At Sands #42735, technology provider EnOcean will be demonstrating self-powered wireless switches and sensors, powered by their surroundings thanks to energy harvesting technology, providing reliable data for intelligent buildings and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Salt Lake City, UT/Las Vegas, NV –
December 12, 2017 – At the International CES 2018 in Las Vegas (January
9-12, 2018), EnOcean, world leader in energy harvesting wireless
technology, will be demonstrating self-powered wireless solutions for
the Internet of Things (IoT). At booth #42735, visitors can experience
self-powered wireless switches and sensors for energy harvesting
wireless sensor solutions based on Bluetooth® and the EnOcean wireless
standard on the sub 1 GHz band (ISO/IEC 14543-3-1x). Generating large
amounts of reliable sensor data for IoT systems, EnOcean's batteryless
devices facilitate highly flexible, maintenance-free applications for
global use in building automation, smart homes, LED lighting control
and industrial applications. In combination with IoT systems, these
self-powered solutions help optimize the utilization of buildings,
create new service models and make buildings more flexible, more
energy-efficient and altogether more cost-effective.
The key to intelligent IoT systems
Networked devices form the basis of the Internet of Things. They process large volumes of sensor data to make our everyday lives easier, safer and more comfortable. EnOcean´s self-powered wireless sensors are the eyes and ears of the IoT, as they collect the required data to operate large numbers of IoT devices efficiently, without any need of a battery.
At CES 2018, EnOcean will be
demonstrating cutting-edge self-powered wireless solutions for the
Internet of Things based on Bluetooth® and EnOcean.
Easyfit portfolio for Bluetooth® lighting systems
EnOcean now offers wireless and self-powered Easyfit switches for Bluetooth® lighting systems for worldwide usage, enabling maintenance-free, ready-to-use LED lighting applications based on energy harvesting technology.
The self-powered and wireless Easyfit
switches can be commissioned by Near Field Communication (NFC) to allow
simple or complex lighting scenes and effects, and enable easy,
flexible installation of lighting applications. The wireless Easyfit
switches are maintenance-free as they do not require batteries, are
freely positionable and allow flexible control as well as intuitive
usage. Easyfit Bluetooth® switches are being employed in hundreds of
lighting solutions, offering self-powered control for Bluetooth®
lighting systems in 2.4 GHz.
At CES 2018, EnOcean will be also
presenting the first 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.
Self-powered wireless IoT solutions based on EnOcean
At the show, EnOcean will be also demonstrating a complete portfolio of self-powered wireless sensors optimized for building automation. One of these sensors, for example, is a solar-powered temperature/humidity sensor, which can be flexibly positioned on the wall or simply used as a stand-alone device. Visitors to the show can experience this cutting-edge device generating reliable sensor data for IoT systems also at the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) booth (Sands, #42914).
These maintenance-free solutions are based on the EnOcean wireless standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3-1X) introduced by the EnOcean Alliance on the sub 1 GHz band, which has proven to be a resounding success in building automation and smart homes, due to its high reliability and a radio range of up to 98 feet. Self-powered wireless sensor solutions help to make buildings more flexible, more energy-efficient and more cost-effective.
Together with leading industry partner IBM, EnOcean will present a cutting-edge IoT solution on the EnOcean wireless standard.
IBM and EnOcean to bring sensors to the cloud for IoT applications in sub 1 GHz
To further develop self-powered wireless solutions with EnOcean radio standard in sub 1 GHz for the Internet of Things, EnOcean is in close collaboration with IBM, a strong partner with longstanding expertise in cloud-based services and IoT. EnOcean is proud to be one of the first IBM Business Partners to use the mark “Ready for IBM Watson IoT.”
In combination with IBM´s Watson IoT
Platform, a fully managed, cloud-hosted service, and the Smart EnOcean
gateway from Digital Concepts, self-powered EnOcean-based sensors
enable maintenance-free solutions for Real Estate Management to
increase operational, financial, and environmental performance of
facilities. Standardized sensor profiles help ensure the
interoperability of more than 1,500 products from the EnOcean
eco-system, making it possible to develop interoperable system
solutions. These solutions can be used in asset management, ambient
assisted living projects, insurance or hotel or campus projects, giving
maintenance-free wireless switches and sensors based on EnOcean
EnOcean GmbH is the developer of the patented energy harvesting wireless technology marketed under the brand names Dolphin and Easyfit. Headquartered in Oberhaching, near Munich, the company produces and markets maintenance-free wireless sensor solutions for batteryless applications in the Internet of Things, which are used for building and industrial automation, smart homes and LED lighting control. The EnOcean products are based on miniaturized energy converters, energy-efficient electronics and reliable wireless technology for open wireless standards like EnOcean, zigbee and Bluetooth®. Leading product manufacturers have been relying on EnOcean wireless modules for their system solutions for the past 15 years and have installed the products in several hundreds of thousands of buildings around the world.
