Pole-Mount Street Light Controller

Our OpenSky IoT Pole-Mount smart street lighting controller (SLC) uses open standard telecom network. Use of cellular network allows the IoT controller to connect directly to a local cell tower (2G/ 3G/ 4G/ NB-IoT). This eliminates the need for dedicated Gateways.

A single luminaire controller is suitable for single, dual or four-arm poles and does not rely on NEMA or Zhaga receptacle.

OpenSky IoT Pole-Mount light controller is a perfect smart city street lighting solution that is economical to deploy throughout your city.

Open Standard Cellular Network - Pole-Mount Street Light Controller

Open Standard Cellular Network

Public infrastructure demand high reliability and security. Therefore, OpenSky IoT OLC (outdoor light controller) uses standardized 3GPP cellular network to connect an individual street light to our light management platform.

OpenSky outdoor light controller automatically selects the best available local connectivity: Edge (EGPRS), LTE Cat M1 or NB-IoT (NB2).

Cellular networks comply to highest global security standards. It is used by billions of devices today. They offer long range, deep coverage, high availability and managed Low Power Wide Area network (LPWAN).

Gateway Free Installation

Unlike proprietary network providers (e.g. LoRA, Sigfox, Zigbee, Wi-Sun and UNB), OpenSky street light controller connects directly with our light management platform via local cellphone tower.

There is no need for local Gateways. This in turn significantly reduces cost and hassle of maintaining a local network infrastructure, since local operators manage and maintain the network.

  • No network engineering needed
  • OpenSky automatically receives its geo-location through:
    • GPS
    • Galileo
    • QZSS

Individual Light Management

Different parts of a city have different road lighting requirements. Individual light management through OpenSky outdoor light controller offers incredible flexibility.

Each luminaire can be individually switched and dimmed using custom light scenes. Vice versa, luminaires send meaningful alerts for smart and efficient maintenance.

During the off-peak hours, street lights can be dimmed to a pre-defined low level. Thereby reducing light pollution and benefitting nocturnal life.

Customer feedback

We wanted to accomplish a few things, namely reducing energy consumption at the stations and lowering light pollution for people living in the area. At the same time, we wanted to ensure public safety. Tvilight’s solution combined this beautifully.

Eelco KrakauContract Manager, Dutch Railways

JCL is using the Tvilight solution in County Kerry, which is the first installation of its kind in Ireland. The solution has proven to be very successful, enabling us to achieve 60% savings on energy. It’s a very impressive technology.

Philip CurneenDirector and Program Manager at JCL

Tvilight’s adaptive lighting control is an excellent solution; it has allowed us to save energy as well as manage the street lights remotely. I truly believe that this is the future for the Netherlands, Europe and the world.

Robin BrekelmansProject Manager, Municipality of Nuenen

I am really satisfied with the result. By using LED streetlights and dynamic dimming, we save more than 60% of the energy previously spent on street lighting. This is a major achievement.

Stephan KikkertProject Leader, Municipality of Texel

The beauty of the TVILIGHT solution is that it doesn’t compromise public safety in any way. The true light-on-demand helps to keep the streets safe while minimizing the light pollution.
