    Lighting asset management with CityTouch workflow app

    Working with CityTouch has made life much       more flexible

    because management processes are simplified and shown transparently.”


    - Jörg Hartung, Executive Director of Street Lighting


    Customer challenge


    As Siegburg has grown, street lighting has become an increasingly important feature of the town’s public space. Prior to 2014, Siegburg had a mixed public lighting infrastructure with many different pole, bracket, lamp, and luminaire types. Many of these light points were obsolete and did not meet high-efficiency energy requirements, and the lighting system had limited opportunities for transparent and flexible information gathering and sharing. Clearly, the time had come for change.


    Accurate lighting data


    System managers can use Philips CityTouch to create type catalogues, which make it simple to select resources and assign them to individual light points. Type catalogues for poles, luminaires, lamps, and brackets include all frequently- and recently-used types, technical information, and additional userconfigurable information. Type catalogues allow system users to generate and view detailed information on lighting-specific business processes as quickly and easily as possible. They also make mass detection and maintenance tasks, such as re-lamping, very quick and easy.


    Because all operation-relevant processes are noticeably simplified and transparent, CityTouch has made the working relationship between the city and the utility provider much more flexible.



    CityTouch is a software platform for outfoor lighting. It allows operators to monitor and manage the public outdoor lighting infrastructure. They can also store, visualise, and analyse historical information about luminaire performance.
