IOT street lighting control goes big
TTP and Mayflower have completed development of the latest wireless smart lighting control system.
Using the smart lighting control node, the Mayflower CMS (central management system) now controls and monitors in excess of 180,000 street lights, bollards and signs in the UK and Ireland. This has allowed Hampshire County Council to reduce CO2 emissions by around 4000 tonnes, equivalent to 1600 cars every year.
Mayflower’s product range includes both external and internal solutions, which give the ability to monitor and control a range of installations from high masts and street lights to illuminated bollards and signs. All nodes communicate via a Zigbee self-healing mesh network, connected to Mayflower’s back-office solution via a secured GSM Internet connection mounted to the network coordinator.
