Connected street lighting


What if lights on your street knew when to stay on longer and when to switch off? What if you could easily check online how much energy street lights are using and which ones need repair? What if your city had full control over its lighting, setting schedules and dimming on demand? What if it had access to elaborate data visualization and analytics, to make better decisions?

We believe this would make for a city that is more sustainable, more efficient and ultimately, a better place to live in. That is why we developed CityTouch.


CityTouch is a lighting management system for public lighting. It offers simple web applications to analyze, plan and maintain workflow management, whilst you can monitor, manage and measure your connected lighting through the applications.
