    Connected lighting joins an existing smart city platform

    The lighting project, a significant milestone in Jakarta’s ongoing transformation into a smart city, involved upgrading nearly 90,000 street luminaires with energy efficient LED lights connected to a Philips CityTouch lighting management system. Completed in just seven months, with approximately 430 light points connected each day, this is the world’s fastest street lighting retrofit and remote management project undertaken to date.


    Each light point is connected and performance data sent through eisting cellular networks to the city's lighting office or operator. The data will enable city officials to efficiently monitor the city's lighting infrastructure and illumination levels to match the needs of each district.
