Motion and activity sensor from EnOcean at Light & Building 2024

At Light & Building 2024, EnOcean is set to introduce the enhanced EMDC energy harvesting motion and activity sensor family. This device, according to EnOcean, marks a significant leap forward in smart building technology. It allows users to monitor room occupancy, light levels and people activity through one single, self-powered wireless sensor.

Data for room booking, lighting and HVAC control

EMDC devices provide essential sensor information for room occupancy, light level and people activity monitoring, all from a single, wireless, and maintenance-free device. This simplifies deployments in smart building applications.

Access to occupancy and ambient light level data enables the automation of lighting systems based on room occupancy and available light. In addition, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems can benefit from the same information to automatically adjust heating, cooling and airflow based on actual utilisation rather than static schedules. This type of smart building automation enhances energy efficiency without needing manual intervention.

“The EnOcean EMDC energy harvesting motion and activity sensor redefines smart building technology. It offers a streamlined solution for monitoring room occupancy, light levels and people activity. The easy integration of this product with intelligent lighting and HVAC control systems, as well as space utilisation applications, positions this product as a game-changer for sustainable and smart building applications,” says Matthias Kassner, Vice President of Product Marketing at EnOcean.

Maintenance-free sensor

Beyond lighting control, the sensor’s occupancy data enables streamlined monitoring of workspace and meeting room utilisation. Users can easily locate available meeting rooms, saving time and effort. Services such as office or restroom cleaning can be scheduled based on actual utilisation instead of fixed schedules. This enhances operational efficiency and user satisfaction.

The latest sensors also report on people’s activity by quantifying detected motion events. This feature offers insights into the level of activity and utilisation within different building areas, providing a better understanding of space dynamics.

EnOcean at Light + Building

At Light + Building 2024 in Frankfurt (3-8 March 2024), energy harvesting products and IoT solutions will be at the heart of the EnOcean show presence. Together with key partners EnOcean will exhibit at the EnOcean Alliance booth D10 in hall 9.0. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the latest generation of the EMDC product with other innovations from EnOcean and partners.
