San Ramon, Calif.- The EnOcean Alliance, one of the strongest technical building alliances, announces today its membership in the AllSeen Alliance, the largest cross-industry consortium for the Internet of Everything. The joint forces of the two Alliances aim to connect the established EnOcean ecosystem of more than 350 companies and over 1,500 batteryless interoperable products to the open source AllSeen Alliance community. As a first activity, the EnOcean Alliance will participate in the AllSeen Alliance Partner Program at Mobile World Congress 2015, MWC, (Barcelona, March 3-5) in Hall 8.0, Theatre B.
"The cooperation of AllSeen Alliance and EnOcean Alliance is a tremendously important step for the building automation industry into a future of seamless, cross-vendor intelligent control. It marks a significant milestone in the EnOcean Alliance's history of creating an interoperable, standard-based platform, which connects all building areas to an integrated system maximizing the possibilities of energy savings and comfort," comments Graham Martin, Chairman of EnOcean Alliance, on the partnership.
"We are delighted to welcome the EnOcean Alliance as a member of the AllSeen Alliance. EnOcean is one of the most widely adopted wireless building automation standards and perfectly complements the AllSeen Alliance's AllJoyn framework. Batteryless sensors and switches are a vital part of an Internet of Everything to bring needed data and interactivity to intelligent systems. The future of connected homes and industry is being built today through the union of various worldwide standards such as EnOcean, Wi-Fi or Ethernet with AllJoyn to create a common language for connected everything," says Philip DesAutels, Senior Director, IoT, AllSeen Alliance.
Demo at AllSeen Alliance Partner Program at MWC 2015
At MWC, the EnOcean Alliance will participate in the AllSeen Alliance Partner Program, which is headed under the motto "Open Source IoT: How to Unleash the Future of Connected Devices". Part of the contribution is an on-stage demo in Hall 8, Theatre B hosted by AllSeen Alliance community member Muzzley, an Internet of Things company offering an innovative connected devices platform. The demo will connect batteryless building sensors, which are based on the EnOcean energy harvesting wireless standard, to other systems in a home such as white goods and multimedia to an integrated, cross-standard control solution.
