As part of this ambitious project, 2,000 inefficient high-pressure mercury-vapor luminaires were replaced with energy-saving LEDs and connected to the city's IT system via the Interact City software management system.
Interact City Lighting asset management software enables the new luminaires to automatically locate and commission themselves, as well as transmit data about their status. As soon as the LED luminaires are integrated with the software, people like Harald Bergman, Knittelfeld’s Head of Public Lighting, can track the luminaires’ performance and adjust street lighting levels almost instantly via a centralized dashboard.
The intuitive interface makes performing management tasks easy and convenient. In addition, automatic fault detection lets system users know where an outage has occurred so that maintenance crews can be dispatched quickly.
The connected luminaires relay performance data, including lighting levels and energy consumption. This data can be used to gain insights into the city’s lighting infrastructure. Maintenance and fault reports can be generated to provide a historical view of lighting performance, allowing the city to adjust the lighting as needed, and plan maintenance tasks to avoid downtime.
User-friendly Interact City Scene management software enables each luminaire to be managed individually or in groups to perform close to real-time or prescheduled actions.
