Future-proof your investment in LED streetlights with Telensa PLANet

The world’s #1 application, deployed in over 50 cities, provides lifetime local control and pays for itself with energy and maintenance savings. And the city gets a multi-purpose wireless IoT network for free.

Telensa PLANet: Intelligent lighting for smart cities

Adding wireless remote control for your street, roadway and area lighting makes financial sense, whether you are switching to LED or retro-fitting to existing fixtures.  With remote control, you can save energy by only using the precise amount of light you need and by accurately measuring every watt used. You can cut maintenance costs with real-time fault monitoring and by using detailed operational intelligence to improve day-to-day effectiveness and planning. Telensa is the world’s #1 outdoor lighting control system, with one million telecells around the world. Our 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 other systems. What’s more, Telensa is at the forefront of the Internet of Things (IoT), enabling you to add smart city sensors to your streetlights, and to add smart city applications, such as parking, to your Telensa remote control network.

The benefits of adaptive control

Citizen attitudes to LED streetlighting are changing month by month and street by street. The only way to respond to these and other changes is to connect and control every streetlight throughout its lifetime.

The business-case-first path to sustainable IoT

Streetlights are an ideal place for sensors, and they are easily integrated into Telensa’s PLANet soluton. With Telensa, connected streetlights can become a low-cost sensory network taking the pulse of the entire city. The Telensa UNB network is ideal for adding additional applications such as parking or asset tracking. Unlike adapting short-range mesh or cellular networks for these applications, Telensa’s low-cost UNB network means that cities can deploy with a compelling business case from the outset. The Telensa Smart City API enables sensor and application data to be harnessed by a range of smart city applications, enabling better operational planning and more informed decision-making by city leaders.


Not just pilots… millions of devices and more than 50 large-scale smart city networks commercially deployed today.
