Senic Presents Wireless Switches with Energy Harvesting Technology

Berlin-based hardware and software company, Senic, presents the latest addition to the Nuimo Suite at ShowStoppers, the Nuimo Click. Using energy harvesting technology, the Nuimo Click provides wireless, one-click control over Sonos speakers and other smart home devices, simplifying the smart home experience.

Senic’s new line of self-powered wireless switches use energy harvesting technology to generate enough energy to provide power to the switch without requiring the need for cables or batteries. The Nuimo Click collects and saves the tiniest amounts of energy every time a button is pressed, converting it into kinetic energy for wireless communication. For example, each time a user runs a function on the Nuimo Click, the stored energy is transformed into enough power to send a wireless command to the Nuimo Hub, which triggers the control of smart home devices. This technology reduces energy consumption and provides extensive cost savings in a smart home.

The Nuimo Click provides simple, one-click control for smart home devices such as Sonos or Philips Hue. As a part of the “Works with Sonos” program, users can seamlessly run functions such as playing a favorite playlist, play/pause, and skipping songs on any of the Sonos Home Sound System devices. Nuimo Click also provides control to Philips Hue bulbs, allowing users to turn lights on/off, dimming and color control. Nuimo Click is the second product to join the Nuimo lineup from Senic, who are building the future of human-centered smart home technology in Berlin, Germany.
