Great product is offered by SRS Energy – sole power tile. It allows to build a big solar panel from whole roof. If it isn’t fake that product will be very very popular on Cyprus where so many sunny days.

Solar Powered Occupancy Sensor

EnOcean Solar Powered Occupancy Sensor

Recently EnOcean announced its new product self-powered occupancy sensor Sensolux. It combines a 360 degrees PIR detector and light level sensor for automated lighting control. The Sensolux uses solar energy to get the power. It needs just a 3 hours of ambient light a day to be fully charged and can work in the dark for 48 hours.

The solar powered occupancy sensor can be used standalone together with a lighting control actuator or can be integrated into a LON or KNX/EIB network. The Sensolux includes a functionality to report its own energy level.

Personally I like the “green technology” solutions. They save our money and our environment. But, in my mind, £147.10 is too much for 360 degrees motion detector. Even it’s solar powered and “green”.
