- Plug-n-Play – fast, wire free installation, connected in seconds
- Contactless switching – Hands-Free, hygienic, …
- Extremely low energy consumption – environmentally friendly, maintenance free
- Extraneous light independent, robust, mobile, compatible – broad application field,
Through a simple “wave “ or „approach” of the hand inside an area of around 5cm distance, the PicoDot can control all possible EnOcean® compatible actuators and their connected devices and consumers.
Connect the EnOcean® products within seconds with each other and place the clever and mobile wireless switches anywhere you like. Now for example, you can control your standard lamps with an EnOcean® compatible switchable plug socket from anywhere inside the wireless range of around 30meters, turning them on and off and dim them remotely.
There are countless actuators in a variety of forms (e.g. wall enclosure mounting) that can be connected and “Dotted”. A few examples, and information to the integration possibilities of the PicoDot in alternative “non-EnOcean®” systems can be found in the sub-menu “Compatibility”.
The PicoDot was especially developed to have an extremely low energy consumption. The calculated life expectancy of the battery with a normal switching cycle of a typical light switch is approximately 70 years. That batteries today have approximately a 20-25 years physical life expectancy, means that the PicoDot will provide a maintenance free service for this duration.
A battery life expectancy to switching cycles comparison table can be found under the sub-menu “Technical Data “.
Extraneous light independence
The PicoDot that recognises a “wave” or “approach” of the hand, can also be operated in full sunlight, because the clever technology can regulate light up to 150,000Lux, which equates to 1.5 times direct sunlight.
The optical system is self-calibrating. Once the PicoDot is positioned, surrounding stationary objects will be automatically calibrated out inside 10 seconds, the PicoDot can then be used as normal. Dust and other infrared light invisible “layers” are also calibrated out.
Areas of Application
The PicoDot can be utilized in many application areas. Currently the PicoDot is being implemented in the following areas, amongst others:
- Private houses & apartments
- Care Homes
- Old peoples homes
- Office buildings
- Kitchens & Restaurants
- Areas with high hygiene standards
Buildings under conservation protection
Below is a list of examples of EnOcean® actuators that can be used with the PicoDot to switch different consumers and devices.
A list of all EnOcean® actuators that we have tested, including instructions for setting the function modes for learning the PicoDot, can be found at picosens.de/EnOcean.

Integration into existing systems
The PicoDot can also be integrated into existing building control systems via so-called gateways.
There are various gateways that translate EnOcean® communication into home automation systems such as KNX, DALI, … or other common bus systems such as USB. For the home automation area, EnOcean® over WLAN gateways are also interesting.
