Exten­ded Ligh­ting – Key to the Smart City

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

Smart City luminaires by Selux

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.
