You can find answers to frequently asked questions about manageable lighting here.
What are the system components?
Column and Luminaire: New or existing lighting columns. They must have energy from the grid or solar. If the luminaires do not have a driver, a driver will be required to be managed.
Management and Communication Unit: It is a hardware within the column that can process commands and rules received from the platform, manage the column elements, collect data and send it to the gateway or platform.
Gateway: It is a hardware component that ensures data/command exchange between the columns and the platform. It does not need to be in every column, the number and location of gateways are made according to the project, taking into account the communication costs and energy consumption.
Network: These are the protocols that ensure communication between the columns and between the columns and gateways, and with the platform. These can be direct access methods such as GSM, WiFi, NB-IOT or methods such as LoRa, RF working with low power and bandwidth.
Mobile Application: It is an iOS and Android application that offers most of the capabilities of the web application that users can use in the field.
How Does the System Work?
Do I need to completely renew the columns?
Do you have a solution where there is no energy line?
Do you have a solution in situations that are not covered by Network (GSM)?
According to what criteria is lighting optimization performed?
1. Sunrise and sunset times (automatically calculated according to the coordinates of the columns)
2. Ambient light (continuously measured with sensors)
3. Motion (with sensors, it is checked whether there is a pedestrian or vehicle motion around the column that will affect the lighting value)
4. Institution's own rules (day, time and lighting value rules determined by the institution. These rules can be defined individually, in groups or for all columns)
