Building Control & Automation is the application of technology to the control & automation of building systems such as temperature and climate control, lighting, smart metering, building management systems and access control. Increasingly these systems are deployed using wireless technology.

DecaWave DWM1000 is an IEEE802.15.4-2011 UWB compliant wireless transceiver module based on DecaWave’s DW1000 IC.  DWM1000 enables the location of objects in real time location systems (RTLS) to a precision of 10 cm indoors, high data rate communications, up to 6.8 Mb/s, and has excellent communications range of up to 300 m thanks to coherent receiver techniques.



And DW1000 offers definite technical competitive advantage over incumbent solutions.

For example, our superior communications range (LOS & NLOS) is important to reduce the number of hubs and allow longer hops between nodes (depending on chosen architecture) thereby lowering cost. Additionally, our low power consumption reduces frequency of battery changes eases maintenance / lowers cost. Immunity to multipath fading is a big issue in buildings: DW1000 increases reliability.

RTLS capability is not a requirement today but it opens up interesting possibilities in the near to medium term, especially regarding the location of sensors, and the easing of maintenance and lowering costs.
