EnOcean Dominates IP Ownership in Energy Harvesting for Wireless Sensor Networks

This new report from WTRS evaluates intellectual property ownership, protection issues, and the growth of adoption of energy harvesting for wireless sensor networks

Mountain View, CA November 3, 2009


Energy harvesting for wireless sensor networks is an area of active and ongoing development. The control of energy harvesting prior art is often overlooked. EnOcean GmbH has a strong portfolio of intellectual property which will have significant impact on the future path of energy harvesting for wireless sensor networks.

"Both EnOcean's patent portfolio and its commitment to protecting that portfolio are very strong", according to Kirsten West, PhD, Principal Analyst with WTRS. "Companies marketing solutions that combine the use of wireless sensor technologies integrated with energy harvesting technologies need to be aware of existing intellectual property".

Using only publicly available information, gathered from public patent sources, and filing information, this report reviews EnOcean and its alliance activity, summarizes the EnOcean wireless technology, analyzes intellectual property management strategies, and EnOcean intellectual property holdings, as well as activities by individual inventors at EnOcean.

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
