EnOcean makes the smart home smarter. Energy harvesting wireless technology the state of the art way to home automation and energy saving

EnOcean’s energy harvesting wireless technology uses its proven interoperable building automation functionality to allow batteryless control of smart homes or smart metering systems. Energy harvesting enabled wireless smart home solutions connect self-powered lighting, heating and climate control with domestic appliances via any EnOcean enabled hub or gateway. The gateway allows complete control of building automation facilities, via a web based interface (over TCP/IP) with other back end services or smart grid systems.

Modular Security Concept

EnOcean offers a modular security concept to meet the power requirements of energy harvesting systems. Device manufacturers can combine rolling code and other encryption mechanisms to suit individual needs and implement different security levels according to the requirements of the respective solutions.

Expandable & Cost-attractive

Energy harvesting wireless technology is ideal for retrofitting smart homes. If you want to renovate or enlarge an attic, or need to add switches later on, EnOcean technology is the best suited and value-for-money alternative to the routing of cables and all the costly and time-consuming chores like caulking that go along with it. The EnOcean smart home is the right way to integrate into future smart grids and to create assisted living concepts.

Making the best use of energy saving potential

There are already devices featuring EnOcean technology that, in addition to electricity, meter the consumption of gas, water and heating wirelessly and send the figures to a central control point. The user or customer obtains a visual display of their consumption of various commodities over a further interface and in this way, at a glance, can identify potential for energy saving. With devices of this kind plus a control system, EnOcean wireless makes it possible to benefit from the most attractive charging rates, for washing machines and driers for instance.

Futuristic networking from WeberHaus

The advantages of energy harvesting wireless technology are illustrated by WeberHaus generation5.0. It already integrates building automation and smart metering enabled by this energy-autonomous technology. In addition to heating it controls lighting, turns off unneeded appliances during absence from home, and enables residents to control every household functionality quite conveniently from where they are sitting. At the same time the home owner can view all consumption figures and the amount of energy being contributed by the house's own solar plant on a TV screen.
