By combining LED luminaires and Interact City lighting management software, the city of Guadalajara is well on their way to becoming a smart city. Lighting managers can monitor the performance of individual LED street lights in near real time and dim or increase brightness in certain areas, such as busy pedestrian crossings or public squares. This combination of energy-efficient connected street lighting and remote management is helping the city to reduce its carbon footprint while increasing the services it offers its residents.
Improving operational efficiency was another goal of the city council. Interact City allows users to manage the lighting infrastructure from just one interface. The powerful asset management software gives managers a map-based view of the city’s lighting assets and workflows so that maintenance crews can be efficiently scheduled to resolve any issues. The percentage of failure complaints from citizens has decreased to less than 0.1% per year.
Because it uses an open systems approach, Interact City is scalable and future-ready for new IoT applications enabled by sensors and other smart city functionality. With Interact City, Guadalajara is ready to meet the future needs of the city and its citizens.
