/ Press Releases

The first engineering service provider in the international business association

San Ramon, CA, USA – March 5th, 2019 – LAE Engineering is the first engineering service provider to join the EnOcean Alliance. The EnOcean wireless standard is the perfect fit with the company’s philosophy of integrally planning and economically implementing customer projects. With this new member, the EnOcean Alliance adds to its internal knowledge pool.

Based in Wiesloch, Germany, LAE Engineering has long relied on self-powered wireless switches, sensors, actuators and controllers as well as gateways and automation systems based on the EnOcean wireless standard in implementing its projects. In addition to zero maintenance, interoperability is an enormous plus point for LAE. Automation solutions can thus be implemented independently of manufacturers, across disciplines and, above all, flexibly.
