For the city
Rather than a far-off vision of the future, the changeover to net­worked cities is already hap­pen­ing around us and across the world, big cities are also grow­ing. The increas­ing over­crowd­ing is pre­sent­ing human beings with huge chal­lenges when it comes to com­mu­nal living. At the same time, dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion is pro­vid­ing new oppor­tu­ni­ties in orga­niz­ing how we live our lives together and increas­ing the qual­ity of life in cities. Already today, light is an essen­tial part of the urban infra­struc­ture. Smart Light­ing sees Selux take this a step fur­ther, build­ing new bridges to ensure a smart future for our cities.

For soci­ety
Less con­ges­tion, better ori­en­ta­tion, more infor­ma­tion and safety – smart, net­worked tech­nol­ogy has huge poten­tial for increas­ing the qual­ity of life in our cities. Both new and exist­ing light­ing stock is already a com­po­nent part of the infra­struc­ture but with Selux Smart Light­ing, it can become a key ele­ment in the smart city of tomor­row

Possible Smart City Features

  • Premium quality Selux optics generate optimal light for a high level of visual comfort, generating quality of life and safety in public areas – both indoors and outdoors.

  • Light interacts with human beings and responds to the widest variety of user requirements. In this way regulated light that is needs-adjusted enables responsible use of resources; – increasing energy efficiency and reducing light pollution.

  • Luminaires are ideal for building up digital networks. Each luminaire can be controlled and regulated individually - data is captured locally, forwarded via the network and processed centrally on a server. Modern encryption standards ensure security of all data.

  • Integrated WiFi interfaces transform luminaires into hotspots and enable simple internet access – whether for free, public or commercial use.

  • Cameras integrated within luminaires or poles foster safety in public spaces. In combination with appropriate software, image data can be recorded in real time and analysed.

  • Luminaires can also take on acoustic functions in public spaces using integrated loudspeakers, enabling information or music to be played back over large spaces. Data can be allocated individually to certain loudspeakers and specific luminaires equipped with emergency functions.

  • Especially in cities, electromobility is one of the great topics of the future. With Charge+Light, Selux is already making a comprehensive contribution to charging of electric cars. Light poles are ideal for such charging operations because, as well as the energy source, they also provide enough light for them to be used at nighttime - a crucial safety aspect.

  • Integrated sensors sense their surroundings, collate data on this and transfer it in real time. This enables analyses to be drawn up and scenarios developed in order to regulate traffic flows or optimise logistics chains. Our goal is to support our customers and partners in using data to generate benefits for people and society.

Con­nected to Life – for a better qual­ity of life

Key ques­tions in the use of smart tech­nolo­gies are: How can we use it to improve our lives, make them more enjoy­able, inter­est­ing and safer? Smart Light­ing by Selux fol­lows the Con­nected to Life“ prin­ci­ple – rather than an end in itself, tech­nol­ogy is closely con­nected to life and the needs, expec­ta­tions and poten­tial of human beings. This is a strat­egy deployed by Selux to make the smart city a goal that is worth striv­ing for – a city with a sus­tain­able qual­ity of life for all.

Urban light­ing forms a log­i­cal basis for this approach since it pro­vides a huge number of instal­la­tion points with a ready supply of elec­tric­ity. In this way smart lumi­naires become nodes in an exten­sive dig­i­tal net­work – a new role for light­ing tech­nol­ogy, for which Selux is opti­mally pre­pared. Con­sis­tently mod­u­lar prod­ucts like the Lif light column pro­vide the opti­mal pre­req­ui­sites for the inte­gra­tion of smart func­tions. The pro­found tech­ni­cal under­stand­ing of Selux’ experts enables us to work with cus­tomers, users and part­ners to devise solu­tions that are per­fectly tai­lored to indi­vid­ual sit­u­a­tions.
