EnOcean Alliance and Digital Concepts showcase IoT with EnOcean for IP at Light+Building 2016:
At Light+Building 2016, Digital Concepts introduced control concepts for the smart home (control of all building services) and the smart business (control of conference systems, as well as building control technology for commercial applications), including corresponding hardware and software at the EnOcean Alliance booth. EnOcean Alliance is a member of AllSeen Alliance, read more about the partnership here and here.
The solutions build a bridge between different standards and technologies for integrated networking of disciplines, as well as for optimum comfort and functionality. Part of this is the Smart EnOcean Gateway from Digital Concepts which connects the EnOcean energy harvesting wireless standard with IP for integration into the AllJoyn® communication framework. That way, users can control smart household appliances such as fridges, stoves, coffee machines, and multimedia directly via battery-less switches, sensors or smartphones.
“Thanks to our cooperation with strong partners, we build the basis to directly connect battery-less sensor solutions to open IoT platforms. The user doesn’t need to care about the technology used by the single components, but can benefit from a seamless connectivity in his smart home – the main concept of the IoT," said Graham Martin, Chairman of the EnOcean Alliance. "We were also happy to welcome Johannes Hauck of Hager and AllSeen Alliance Europe to our booth. Johannes was also flying the AllSeen flag at the impressive Hager booth at the show.”
