    Scene management for cities

    Set the scene in your city

    More than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas, with this figure expected to rise to around 70% over the next few decades. This means that it’s more important than ever to create urban environments that make citizens feel safe, strengthen community, and foster a sense of pride and identity that keeps us connected. And Scene management from Interact can help.

    Improve safety

    Enhance safety via lighting scheduling, dimming, and integration with emergency services. Street lighting can be set to come on automatically when a car or pedestrian approaches at night and dimmed when no activity is detected, conserving energy and keeping costs down without putting citizens at risk.

    Enhance efficiency

    Control scenes, schedules, calendars, and zones from a central dashboard. You can operate all lighting assets individually or in a group, trigger as many different lighting scenes as you want or need, and make changes as often as you like — and you can do it all via your tablet or smartphone.
