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.
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.
