All of these companies use EnOcean technology in their products. EnOcean's self-powered maintenance-free wireless control systems are powered through energy drawn from movement, light or changes in temperature rather than electricity or batteries. The technology adds unmatched flexibility with lower investment and operational costs for sustainable buildings.
