EnOcean uses a patented energy harvesting wireless technology for use in building automation, Smart Home and Internet of Things.
EnOcean devices combine micro energy converters with ultra-low power electronics, and enable wireless communications between battery-less wireless sensors, battery-less switches, mains powered actuators and central gateways / controllers.
The technology empowers a wide array of devices from various vendors, all offering simple, proven and maintenance-free solutions to meet your Home Automation requirements.
