CES 2013: Smart lighting control via wireless energy harvesting switch and tablet
Ian Morris of NXP demonstrates wireless smart lighting control via a tablet, and via a wireless energy harvesting switch. Created by Cherry, the wireless energy harvesting switch is a compact, batteryless alternative to conventional wired switches. The required RF energy is created by the mechanical actuation of the switch, and the data is transmitted wirelessly via RF technology, eliminating the need for complex, expensive connection systems. Wireless energy harvesting is ideal for controlling a wide range of applications, such as lighting, windows, door locks, and alarms - and is the perfect complement to any system using smartphones or tablets for wireless control in the home.
