Company Profile (EnOcean Inc.)

EnOcean (, the inventor of self-powered wireless sensor networks, manufactures energy harvesting and RF modules that enable OEMs to develop wireless sensors & switches for use in building automation systems and other applications in industry and security. The batteryless RF modules convert ambient solar, thermo-electric and mechanical energy into useable electricity that can is purposed for sensor-driven radio communications - primarily in buildings. These 'peel-n-stick' devices reduce time, cost and occupant disruption during building automation system retrofits; and provide unrivalled flexibility in new construction. Today, EnOcean wireless modules are chosen worldwide by more than 100 manufacturers to enable their system ideas for buildings and industry. EnOcean-based components are already in use in over 200,000 buildings worldwide. EnOcean was founded in 2001 as a spin-off from Siemens AG.
