EnOcean Alliance to exhibit at AHR Expo 2019: IoT goes buildings – The self-powered wireless standard for intelligent lighting and HVAC control

/ Press Releases


At Booth #C5023 the international organization will be presenting maintenance-free wireless solutions based on the EnOcean wireless standard, creating a network for the integrated control of intelligent buildings based on the seamless integration of self-powered sensors and switches with local controls, gateways and building management systems.

San Ramon, CA/Atlanta, GA – December 18th, 2018 – The AHR Expo is the world’s largest HVACR event, attracting the most comprehensive gathering of industry professionals from around the globe each year. From January 14-16, the EnOcean Alliance will demonstrate the benefits of the interoperable EnOcean ecosystem for integrated building control and self-powered Internet of Things (IoT) at the AHR Expo 2019 in Atlanta.

At Booth #C5023, the EnOcean Alliance presents a complete automation system based on the open EnOcean energy harvesting wireless standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3-1x). It will include all necessary maintenance-free, wireless components for intelligent lighting and HVAC control as well as energy management.

The EnOcean Alliance offers the advantages of an extensive and established ecosystem of interoperable self-powered wireless sensor solutions that are available to intelligent buildings worldwide. These solutions help optimize the utilization of buildings, create new service models and make buildings more flexible, energy-efficient and altogether more cost-effective. EnOcean wireless networks have been installed in more than 1,000,000 buildings worldwide, making it the most widespread and most field-tested wireless building automation standard in the world.

EnOcean Alliance – Integrated building automation

The Internet of Things adds new dimensions to classic building automation by transmitting sensor data to cloud-based IT platforms that link the data with other information available on the internet and smart data analysis tools.

“Automation is a key factor in the sustainable use of buildings. Our practical experience shows that the possibilities are far from exhausted here. In addition to energy efficiency – and associated cost savings – another aspect is crucial to us: comfort. The automatic, data-based control of air quality, light and noise levels makes offices more comfortable spaces for the people working there. Not only do they feel more comfortable, they are also more productive. US corporations reported a 15% rise in productivity whereas absenteeism dropped by 15%. Self-powered wireless sensor solutions based on the EnOcean standard are perfectly suited to generate reliable sensor data for building optimization while at the same time simplifying installation and increasing flexibility and efficiency”, says Graham Martin, CEO and Chairman of the EnOcean Alliance.

At Booth #C5023 the EnOcean Alliance will be showing examples of self-powered wireless solutions from EnOcean Alliance members such as AdHoc Electronics/Illumra, Echoflex, EnOcean, Mecho Systems, Molex, OBX and Digital Concepts.
