Connected to Life
Rather than a vision of the future, networked cities are a sea change that we are experiencing today. Around the world, global metropolises are growing and increasing overcrowding presents huge challenges when it comes to communal living. At the same time, digitalisation is providing new opportunities for organizing the way we live our lives together and enhancing the quality of life in cities. Light has long since been an integral part of urban infrastructures – and now Selux Smart Lighting is building new bridges to ensure our cities have a smart future.
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.
Selux modular products provide ideal prerequisites for the integration of smart functions and our profound technical understanding enables us to sit down with customers, users and other providers to jointly develop solutions that are individually tailored to individual situations.
Why not ask us about this today? We would be delighted to have the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your visions and our solutions for your smart city project!
Control of lighting is needs-based by means of sensors
– Brightness control of individual or multiple light spots depending on motion of persons
– Light accompanies movements
– Enhanced safety
– Less light pollution
– Enhances well-being
Light-spot based control without control cables or higher-level radio systems
– Programming of lighting parame- ters at the location via app
– Real-time dimming profiles – Twilight control
– Less light pollution
– Low-cost since no control cables or higherlevel radio systems are required
Luminaires are connected to one another via a higher-level communication network. Different data for lighting or from sensors can be transferred.
– Central programming of lighting parameters via light management software or at location via app
– Real-time dimming profiles with day-dependent dimming levels
– Twilight control
– Information on energy consumption, operating times and active monitoring of luminaire temperature
– Energy saving
– Less light pollution
– Flexible adjustment of lighting parameters – Monitoring of energy consumption
– Fault messages, early detection of failures, optimization of repairs and maintenance
– Lighting parameters and sensor data can be displayed in the Smart City platform or in existing management software
Sensors in the luminaire or on the light pole measure environmental or weather data.
– Real-time measurement of envi- ronmental data (noise, particulate matter, nitrogen oxide, sulphur dioxide, CO2, ozone etc.)
– Real-time measurement of weather data (temperature, air humidity, pressure, precipitation type and quantity, wind force and direction etc.)
– Monitoring and representation of environ- mental parameters
– Limit value monitoring
– More closely intermeshed sensor networks for improved local weather forecasts /severe weather warnings or display of environmental data
Weather data influences distribution of light from luminaire.
– The light distribution of the lumi- naire changes depending on weather conditions
– LED modules inside the luminaire are activated differently depending on the weather
– Lighting is optimally adapted to the weather conditions
– Increased safety – Energy-saving
Components in the luminaire or on the pole increase safety.
– Integration of camera systems
– Integration of loudspeakers
– Integration of emergency button
– Increased safety in public spaces
– Simplified procedures in emergencies
Wi-fi components mounted on luminaire or light pole.
– Broadband internet for provision of web-based information and services
– Enhances attractiveness of urban areas
– Incorporation of local trade or tourism
– Transmission of localised web content
– Analysis of usage behaviour of users (frequency of usage, dwelling times, origin etc.)
Information can be called up via components like info buttons or display screens integrated in the pole.
– Integration of information and media technology
– Information can be provided for tourists
– Information can be provided for the visually impaired (e.g. audible timetables) – Advertising
– Public transport timetable displays – Park guidance systems
Sensors can detect traffic situations.
– Improves traffic situations in public spaces – reduces traffic searching for parking spaces
– Improves traffic situations in public spaces
– Reduces traffic searching for parking spaces – Improves environmental situations due to less pollutants and noise
Charging stations integrated on or inside the pole enable charging of electric vehicles.
– Charging of electric vehicles
– Different charging point access options (ad-hoc charging, app, RFID card)
– Online billing of charging costs
– Free/occupied messages to information systems
– Closely intermeshed charging infrastructure for electric vehicles promotes emissions-free electrical mobility in towns and cities
– Illuminated erection location
– Saves additional elements having to be installed in urban areas
