Self-powered wireless sensors and switches using EnOcean wireless standard are ideal for sustainable building applications. Powered by motion, light or heat; no cables or batteries are required for switching or acquisition of sensor information such as temperature, water sensing or presence detection. Sensors and actuators can directly communicate with each other and/or they can be controlled through a room controller/gateway to the cloud for applications that require remote sensing and control via PC or smart phones.
Wireless sensors have been used for many years for building control, but maintenance battery replacement is too costly for professional building sensing solutions. Today, it’s possible to have wireless batteryless solutions powered by kinetic energy, light, or temperature differential. Millions of batteryless wireless sensors already operate in buildings around the world measuring data and communicating with an intelligent system – saving up to 40% of energy and a significant percentage of installation costs.
