Distech Controls has joined 15 other promoter members to found the EnOcean Alliance, a global consortium of companies working to further develop and promote self-powered wireless monitoring and control products for sustainable buildings.

Distech Controls was the first building automation manufacturer to offer a turnkey, commercially available wireless solution, based on EnOcean’s wireless battery-free technology. The wireless technology is powered by energy drawn from movement, light or even changes in temperature rather than batteries. This harvested energy is used for transmitting sensor data over a distance of up to 30 meters within a building, to control and detect conditions related to lighting, blinds, occupancy, humidity, heating or air conditioning without the need for cabling.

Distech Controls offers a variety of wireless battery-less sensors, switches and other devices, and has integrated the wireless receiver on its controllers, allowing for the seamless addition of a wireless sensing solution in new and retrofit buildings.
