Drive value from your LED streetlight investment

Adding wireless remote control to street lighting makes financial sense, whether switching to LED or retro-fitting to existing fixtures. You can save energy by controlling amount of light you use and by accurately measuring every watt. You can cut maintenance costs with automatic fault monitoring and by using detailed operational intelligence to improve day-to-day effectiveness and planning.

Telensa PLANet is the world’s #1 outdoor lighting control system, deployed on 1.5 million lights around the world. A long-range, low-power radio system offers the easiest deployment, we are compatible with all of the leading lighting manufacturers, and we integrate easily with asset management systems. What’s more, Telensa is at the forefront of the Internet of Things (IoT), enabling you to add smart city sensors to the connected streetlight deployment.

Street Lighting Control

THE FOUNDATION FOR SMART CITY APPLICATIONS

Telensa PLANet® delivers energy savings of up to 30% in addition to those from LED, and maintenance savings of up to 80%. These savings quickly pay for the lighting controls and the UNB network, which can be used to support other smart city applications.

Traffic Analytics

TRAFFIC ADAPTIVE LIGHTING AND ANALYTICS

Used by PLANet to save energy by adaptively dimming lights on empty highways, Telensa has the ability to capture traffic volume and mix data from any light pole. Leveraging the street light infrastructure cuts the cost, enabling granular data collection across the whole city.

Waste Analytics

MONITORING TRANSFORMS SERVICE EFFICIENCY

Lack of transparency in waste collection means service levels cannot be measured and performance cannot be built into service contracts. Telensa’s low cost solution provides the data cities need to improve service levels and enforce efficient performance contracts.

Drainage

SAVES MONEY AND PREVENTS FLOODING

Drains and gullies are vital to the safety and smooth running of the city, but there is no business case for adding a sensor to every drain. This combined sensor and data analytics solution protects against flooding and reduces operational costs at the same time.

Air Quality

HYPER-LOCAL DATA FOR THE WHOLE CITY

Air quality is a hyper-local issue but today’s monitoring stations only provide district-level data at best. By utilising street light infrastructure and networks, Telensa can provide the street-by-street data insights that cities need to pinpoint and address pollution problems.
