Tvilight strengthened the lighting infrastructure with the wireless sensing lighting controllers CitySense, which allowed to cut down the energy use, minimize light pollution, and create a safe public space. Because the location is mostly deserted during the night, there is no need to keep the lights burning at full capacity around the clock. This makes it a perfect case for dynamic dimming. Thanks to Tvilight’s presence detection technology, the lights automatically adjust their brightness according to real-time human presence.
The municipality didn’t even need to replace the lamps, because Tvilight plug-and-play controller CitySense works well with both old and new (LED) lighting fixtures.
CitySense units detect moving objects such as cars, cyclists, and pedestrians. Based on the anticipated movement, a number of streetlights brighten up to 80% of their full capacity. When there is no movement and bright lights are no longer needed, the streetlights intelligently dim to a predefined brightness level of 20%. The level of brightness can be configured through the web-based management software CityManager. Thank to this software, the municipality is timely notified about maintenance issues and lighting-related failures.
