Wireless Sensors Make Buildings Smarter

Osram’s SensiLUM wireless integrated sensor product family enables occupancy detection, daylight harvesting, and individual or group control of luminaires over a mesh network based on ZigBee standards. The SensiLUM sensor fits into an industry standard ½-inch knockout in any luminaire. It is compatible with the ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked Light Management System (LMS).


SensiLUM sensors offer 0 to10V dimming or the company’s DEXAL (Data Exchange (interface) for Advanced Lighting) control options. The DEXAL interface option enables bi-directional communication and power between the driver and the SensiLUM sensor. It is suitable for interior commercial office spaces that could benefit from predictive luminaire maintenance programs and rebates from utilities’ energy saving incentive programs that require exact luminaire-specific data, including power consumption, temperature profile, operating hours and diagnostics.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.


The SensiLUM wireless integrated sensor is compact with an L-shaped profile (25.4-mm outer diameter, 22-mm height, and 63-mm length). The sensor also incorporates a custom designed mechanical shutter for quick field of view adjustments to avoid false occupancy detection. The compact design along with a rich feature set enables the SensiLUM sensor to be seamlessly designed into a wide range of OEM luminaires.
