EnOcean and Silvair Collaborate to Develop Bluetooth Mesh Enabled Switches and Sensors

Silvair, a pioneer in Bluetooth-based smart lighting solutions, and EnOcean, an energy harvesting wireless technologies provider, have collaborated to develop self-powered lighting controls and multifunctional sensors with Bluetooth mesh networking connectivity.

Wireless switches and sensors developed under this partnership will feature EnOcean’s patented energy harvesting technology that enables seamless installation and maintenance-free operation. Silvair will provide a wireless communication engine allowing them to be used in robust and fully scalable mesh lighting networks powered by the Silvair Mesh Stack. This Bluetooth-based mesh networking solution has been designed to enable 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 upcoming Bluetooth Mesh standard following its adoption.

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. These include unmatched scalability, wire-like reliability, guaranteed cross-vendor interoperability and support for innovative location-based services. Silvair aims to deliver the world’s first full-stack Bluetooth Mesh implementation allowing lighting manufacturers to easily incorporate a robust and fully interoperable mesh networking technology into their products.
