The LightGrid system is made up of three basic components: nodes, gateway(s) and servers.

LightGrid nodes

  • Built-in GPS device lets you know the exact location of each fixture, which provides confirmation of installation, as well as making for more efficient maintenance
  • Automatically connects to the network, reducing commissioning time
  • Utility-grade metering means you pay for actual energy use, with measurement accuracy of up to ± 1%
  • One-piece control ensures no special electronics are needed, as node connects to external socket
  • Power consumption i.e. <2W

LightGrid gateways

Each LightGrid wireless gateway can control a mesh network made up of 1000 nodes.

  • 2 km line-of-sight range
  • Input: 230-240V +/-10%

LightGrid server

With LightGrid, lighting data for every fixture is accessible through a Web-based interface that can be hosted remotely. Protected by a high level of security encryption, our central management server offers secure login for all users.

Armed with actionable information, municipalities and transportation departments can implement smarter energy-saving strategies through more precise on/off and dimming schedules, particularly during a middle-of-the-night operation in low-traffic areas. Other features include the ability to:

  • Update easily with “over-the-air” firmware upgrades
  • Send automated fault email notifications when something happens to a fixture
  • Display GPS coordinates in the Google Maps format
  • Present real-time lighting information with a single click
  • Access scheduling, customized reporting, grouping and user access level management
  • Dim manually with detailed information
