EnOcean uses the energy harvesting principle for its products, in which energy is obtained from the surroundings (motion, light and temperature differences) to power wireless switches and sensors for maintenance-free applications in the Internet of Things (IoT) for digitized buildings and intelligent LED lighting control as well as in smart homes. By using this technology, buildings reduce their CO2-footprint significantly. EnOcean is an experienced partner for hundreds of leading product manufacturers worldwide which rely on its established energy harvesting technology platform consisting of ultra-low power electronics, energy management, energy harvesters and ultra-low power radio. Depending on the application, the self-powered products use the international standards EnOcean (ISO/IEC 14543-3-1X), Zigbee or Bluetooth® for wireless communication.
