The Interact City software installation meant Jakarta could:
- Upgrade approximately 50% of its lighting by replacing inefficient mercury-vapor lamps with high quality, energy-efficient LEDs
- Control and monitor its new street lights remotely
- Generate new insight into the operation and optimization of a key city resource
The city-wide renewal, one of the world’s biggest and fastest ever, consisted of installing new energy-efficient LED luminaires and connecting the remaining street lighting to the Interact City lighting management software. The installation was completed in just seven months, which meant the city could start enjoying Interact City’s benefits in record time.
Each light point is connected to the connected lighting system architecture, and performance data is sent through existing networks to the city’s lighting office or operator. The data enables city officials to efficiently monitor the city’s lighting infrastructure and remotely manage illumination levels to match different needs by district. For example, in the evening when traffic is low, Jakarta’s lighting office can dim the lighting by 50%, resulting in additional energy savings. Interact City dashboards enable operators to have access to the latest luminaire status updates, get automatic failure notifications and send repair crews only when and where needed, improving operational efficiency.
