Innovative Motion Sensors for Solar Street Lights

CitySense Solar is a state-of-the-art motion sensor designed for solar street lights.

Using the accurate and reliable PIR sensing technology, this motion sensor street lighting solution delivers light on demand, which significantly boost road safety and energy savings.

To meet broader demands, CitySense Solar comes in two variants – Pole Mount and Luminaire Mount. Both versions are LSI based and work on 0-10V dimming protocol.

It is an ideal solution for making solar street lights smarter and more energy efficient.

Pole Mount & Luminaire Mount Motion Sensor for Solar Street Lights

Pole Mount and Luminaire Mount Options

To meet unique requirements, CitySense Solar comes in Pole-Mount and Luminaire-Mount variants.

  • Pole-Mount is a premium variant:
    • Street light motion sensor and controller come in a single housing
    • Detects pedestrians, cyclists and cars
  • Luminaire-Mount is an economical variant:
    • Street light motion sensor and controller come separately
    • Detects only slow-moving traffic

Adjustable Coverage Range

The detection range on both the variants can easily be adjusted.

For Pole-Mount, coverage can be adjusted by tilting the sensor or mounting the sensor at different heights.

For Luminaire-Mount, coverage can be adjusted by four different types of lenses, which are easy to swap.

Light on Demand

Solar street lights automatically brighten to an ideal level when a human is detected in the area. As soon as the area is vacant, the lights return to a minimum, pre-defined level. This beautifully balances energy usage without compromising public safety.

Safe Circle of Light

The road user is virtually surrounded in a safe “circle of light,” boosting perception of safety. When a human is detected, the sensor triggers the surrounding street lights. You can decide which lights you want to trigger.

Optimize your public lighting by understanding how and when the streets or specific areas (rail stations, parking lots, industrial zones) are used by the citizens.

  • Measure people’s movement during the different hours at night for every night and detect bottlenecks if any
  • Identify which areas or spots are more popular
  • Spot trends and patterns, to adjust street lighting accordingly


Smart Street Lighting - Energy Savings

Up to 80% energy savings and CO2 prevention

Solar street lights adapting automatically to human presence boost energy savings as well as significantly reduce CO2 emissions.

Smart Street Lights - Maintenance Cost Reduction

Up to 70% reduction in maintenance costs

Proactive alerts/notifications for faults, alarms and outages help optimize maintenance and reduce costs by up to 70%.

Motion Sensor Street Lighting Control System - Intrusion Detection

Detect intrusion in restricted areas

Lights illuminate only when a human is detected, alerting security about someone’s presence. Log data on detection timings are also available.

Total Control of Smart Street Lights

Smart monitoring of road usage

Analyze how frequently a specific road or path is being used by looking at the number of triggers registered by the sensors during the different hours of night.

Solar Streetlight - Lower Light Pollution

Lower light pollution

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

Solar Streetlight - Improve Safety Perception

Improve safety perception

With street lights spontaneously brightening up in the presence of human, the safety perception of the road users increases naturally.

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.

Haye MensonidesCommercial Director of Dynniq

Technology is developing rapidly within public lighting. That’s why we choose Tvilight intelligent street lighting solution that is future-proof. Connected lighting will play a central role in the future.

Sander KlijnstraMunicipality of The Hague

The combination of new LED streetlights, dynamic dimming, and remote control options offered by TVILIGHT is an optimal investment because it helps us save energy while improving public safety and security at the port.

Bas van den BoschProject Manager, Port of Moerdijk

Classic streetlight design and integrated intelligence do not have to be mutually exclusive. We combined classic streetlight design with Tvilight’s wireless lighting control options to help The Hague meet its unique goals.

Tvilight: The 'talking' streetlamps that will lighten your heart (but not your wallet). It is a first step to Smart Cities...

Daisy CarringtonCNN

We aim at becoming a Digital City with greater connectivity and information access for the citizens as well as the tourists. With intelligent lighting solution, this vision became a reality. Our city is benefiting in every aspect – from safety and security, to easy access to information.

Shikhar AgrawalGovernment of Rajasthan

Many youngsters visit the cinema, the skating ring, sports facilities and pubs during late evening hours. Sometimes they move in group, but often alone, and then good lighting is essential for a better sense of safety. This is an excellent initiative for the bicycle highway.

Abdrahman LabsirCity Council Member at Youth and Prevention (Mechelen)

Wireless smart lighting system was selected as most the preferred solution. It improves illumination and safety, reduces cost and cuts CO2 emissions. Due to the system’s openness and flexibility, it also offers a foundation to host innovative systems that would help us become a smart city.

City of Dortmund

Individual light management and control provide unprecedented flexibility. Performance of all the street lights is clearly visible in the light management system. Together with smart monitoring, this provides an unprecedented degree of transparency for the operator of the installation. This is what future smart light looks like today!

Jan WiesemannProject Manager at Trilux

Smart Solar Streetlight - Neighbor Trigger

Neighbor Trigger

Upon detection of human presence, all lights in the surrounding areas turn to a pre-defined brightness level, visually creating a safe circle of light around the occupant while he/she is travelling and improving safety perception at the same time.

Street Light Motion Sensors - Heatmap


CitySense Solar performs traffic occupancy monitoring without additional sensors. The generated heatmap shows the relative traffic occupancy based on the number of triggers.
