[ Technical Textiles - EnOcean Alliance for intelligent green buildings]

EnOcean Alliance for intelligent green buildings.
Let's have " Clean - tech " the need of the hour.
Powered by tiny amounts of energy drawn from light, movement or changes in temperature in their surrounding environment, EnOcean sensors are able to transmit reliable wireless signals over 30 metres inside a building and 300 metres in free air. They can be used wherever there is a need for the wireless, hassle-free control of lighting, blinds, shutters, heating and air conditioning. These capabilities inspired Alex Haw to conceive the LightHive installation, first shown at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. It consists of a constellation of hundreds of suspended LEDs which switch on and off and change in intensity using EnOcean technology.
