EnOcean and Silvair team up to deliver wireless switches and sensors
Silvair and EnOcean has recently announced collaboration to develop self-powered lighting controls and multifunctional sensors using Bluetooth mesh networking connectivity.

The Bluetooth-based mesh networking solution enables low-latency wireless communication even in high-density lighting networks employing sensors to drive efficiencies. It can be updated over-the-air to become compliant with the latest standard.

Silvair is a company that specializes in Bluetooth-based smart lighting solutions for professional applications, while EnOcean specializes in energy harvesting wireless technologies for building automation.

Wireless switches and sensors developed under this partnership will feature EnOcean’s patented energy harvesting technology that enables simple installation and maintenance-free operation. Silvair will provide a wireless communication engine allowing for fully scalable mesh lighting networks.

Silvair has been a major contributor to the upcoming Bluetooth Mesh standard, which the company says is the most robust and powerful low-power radio technology for connected lighting in commercial spaces.

EnOcean CEO Andreas Schneider said, “Through our partnership with Silvair, who shares our commitment to industry leadership in wireless lighting control and the Internet of Things, we have taken another important step toward modern LED lighting control for worldwide usage.”

Optimized to meet the challenging requirements of the commercial lighting environment, Bluetooth Mesh delivers a range of features that make it the world’s first wireless technology capable of driving the connected lighting revolution in professional applications. The merits include scalability, wire-like reliability, cross-vendor interoperability and support for innovative location-based services.
