A united vision on
smart street lighting

Rogaland County

Norway

 

In Rogaland, Norway, 18,000 connected LED street lights, which are managed and controlled by Interact City software, have been installed across eleven municipalities, as part of a two-year plan to become a smart municipality.

Being able to control each individual light point is a very valuable feature. We can turn up the brightness in a neighborhood where more light is required, and we can turn it down in other areas when not needed.”


- Jarl Hoogstad, Product Manager for road and street lighting at Lyse Elnett

Customer challenge


Eleven towns in the Rogaland region came together in a united effort to upgrade their city infrastructure and enable smart technologies to improve life for their citizens. The recently installed connected LED street lighting is just the first step in a two-year plan to roll out smart technologies, including sensors and other connected devices. The region’s goals are to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs and improve the livability cities for citizens.

Central control of all connected light points

Lyse Elnett, an industrial company owned by the municipalities in Rogaland, initiated this large-scale road and street lighting upgrade and is managing the project. Some municipalities have also included lighting for parks and footpaths.

 

"Stavanger municipality wanted to expand the project to include upgrading park lighting as well as street lighting. The park lighting is controlled via Interact City in the same way as the street lighting. We can do this for all exterior lighting, and this is in keeping with our thinking about smart lighting control. Being able to control each individual light fixture is a very valuable feature. We can turn up the brightness in a neighborhood where more light is required, and conversely we can turn it down in other areas when not needed," says Jarl Hoogstad, Product Manager for road and street lighting at Lyse Elnett.

 

The solution offers great benefits to both users and operators. Interact City is easy to operate via a centralized dashboard at Lyse Elnett or locally at each of the municipalities, and Lighting asset management software provides an interactive map that shows the location and status of all the network’s light points. The system also sends an immediate error message in case of a lighting fault, ensuring a quick and accurate maintenance response.

 

Interact City Scene management software offers Rogaland’s municipalities simple and shared control over a large number of light points. Authorized users can manage individual lights or create zones, increasing brightness in certain neighborhoods while dimming in areas that are not in use.


The municipalities are also thinking ahead. With an open systems approach, Intearct City is scalable and future ready for new IoT applications enabled by sensors and other smart city functionality.

 

Due for completion in 2019, this is one of the largest ongoing street lighting projects in Norway.
