The Internet of Things will radically alter our world through “smart” connectivity, save time and resources, and provide opportunities for innovation and economic growth. Basis for this is a wealth of information, which enables new forms of automation.

Wireless sensors play a key role on the way to the Internet of Things. They are the tools needed to capture and transmit the first data bit in an IoT system.

Self-powered sensors for the IoT

All requirements of the IoT are met by wireless (ease of installation and scaling), self-powered (maintenance-free, zero cost of operation) sensors and actuators that can be accessed via Internet Protocol (IP).

EnOcean energy harvesting wireless sensors that use ambient energy as a power source enable unlimited data capturing where cables or batteries fail. Therefore, energy harvesting wireless sensors are the things in the Internet of Things.

Fascination of EnOcean

Partnerships for the IoT

The EnOcean Alliance partners with AllSeen Alliance, Open Interconnect Consortium, EEBus Iniative and OSGi Alliance to realize seamless, standard-crossing communication in the IoT.

EnOcean to IP

In an IoT network, smart gateways translate wireless EnOcean telegrams to IP. These connect self-powered wireless sensors with the Internet for a seamless communication in the IoT. Therefore, devices, which e.g. measure temperature, humidity, air quality, energy consumption or detect occupancy and water leakages, can directly communicate with white goods and multimedia as well as with applications of smart homes and smacities.
