Environmentally neutral power generation and interoperability are two important cornerstones of any smart home. The SmartValve radiator valve from MinebeaMitsumi operates without a connection to a battery or power supply and can easily be integrated into any existing smart home system. Electrical voltage is generated from the temperature difference between the heating system and room air, using a thermoelectric generator. The valve communicates by default via EnOcean.
