In order to make street lights more intelligent and connected, DimOnOff created a Centralized Adaptive Lighting System also known as Central Management System (CMS), to centrally manage street lights across a city using dimming and other adjustment methods. This smart streetlight solution is compatible with LED conversion, as many cities transition away from traditional expensive high-pressure sodium (HPS) streetlights to more energy efficient LED fixtures.
This complete front-to-end smart wireless control system has saved cities 40-50% in maintenance costs, while other municipal customers have achieve their ROI within three years because they can better predict and prepare for what needs to be fixed and they are saving on energy costs due to the intelligent lighting system adjusting to the unique needs of a specific location. But, the biggest benefit is enhanced safety for citizens with streets that are safer for walking, riding bikes, and driving.
DimOnOff’s intelligent, addressable modules use Digi XBee wireless RF modules to communicate on a secure mesh network – the Digi DigiMesh® network solution. DigiMesh offers added network stability through self-healing and dense network operation while reducing costs to about $.04 per light pole, in comparison to $1.00-$2.00 using alternative technologies.
