Light management system

Become a smart city with connected lighting

CityTouch is a secure, connected lighting management platform that is helping cities become more livable, efficient and sustainable.

 

CityTouch provides full visibility and control of your city’s street lighting from a centralized dashboard, allowing you to securely monitor light points, set schedules, and adjust light levels on demand. Data encryption and two-factor authentication ensure the software meets the most stringent security standards.
