    Scene management

    Control your road lighting remotely with Interact Scene management

    Scene management software gives you visibility and control across your entire road lighting infrastructure with connected light points that you can view and control via a centralized dashboard. Automatic fault notifications enable you to plan maintenance quickly and easily. Dimming schedules help you reduce costs, while on-demand light level adjustments help keep road users safe.

    Benefits for road operators

    Manage lighting remotely

    Get full visibility of your road lighting infrastructure over a centralized web-based dashboard. Manage your lighting remotely over a standard web browser.

    Control lighting across the roads

    Create custom light groups or manage each light point individually. Adjust your lighting to time of year, turn lighting up if there is an accident or a traffic jam (lower traffic speed, higher traffic volume), and set zones to vary the light levels across the roads. Ensure critical road zones are well lit.

    Monitor and respond quickly

    Automatic fault detection alerts you immediately when there is an outage or fault, so maintenance teams can be dispersed quickly, improve road user satisfaction and optimizing maintenance operations.

    Reduce costs

    Reduce power consumption and CO₂ emissions with dimming schedules and activity or presence detection sensors. Ensure road lighting schedules are aligned with the time of day or year so road lights are used only when needed.

    Benefits for road users

    Better service levels

    Provide a better service with remote monitoring and maintenance. Automatic fault detection ensures you see outages in real-time, meaning reduced lighting downtime and improve road user satisfaction.

    Improved road user satisfaction

    Create safer rest areas on highways and toll roads to enable a safer journey. Well-lit rest areas help road users feel comfortable and safe while they are resting.

    Increased safety

    Well-lit crosswalks and intersections make people feel safe and comfortable. Increase light levels in case of an accident. Fix outages quickly with automatic fault notifications. 

    How Scene management works

    Connected road lights installed across the city can be controlled remotely via an intuitive dashboard triggering light scenes or schedules via a standard mobile or other network. The Scene management software provides an overview of the lighting infrastructure, enabling you to plan, schedule and trigger light scenes remotely.

    Control each light point individually or connect a group of street lights through the power line to a segment or group controller, which connects to the Scene management software via the internet.

    The software enables you to grant role-based permissions and access rights to individuals so they can perform clearly defined tasks via the cloud-based dashboard.

    Cabinet based – group management

    Regardless of manufacturer, groups of existing non-connected (wired) streetlights, can be connected via a cabinet to the Interact system using standard mobile network connection from the cabinet.

    Presence detection sensors can be added to a light pole to detect activity on the road so light levels can be dimmed when people and vehicles aren’t around late at night. This helps reduces energy usage when lights aren’t needed but also ensures well-lit streets when people are around. Interact works with an outdoor multisensor from Signify that includes a radar motion sensor to detect people, cyclists, and vehicles. The outdoor multisensor complies with the Zhaga-D4i interface standard for smart luminaires.

    Open APIs

    Open, secure APIs enable the integration of Scene management software with other 3rd party systems or dashboards enabling lighting to be synchronized with other road operations and services or activities. The APIs also enable you to share access to lighting control with approved third parties and software developers who could create additional apps or services to drive innovation in road user engagement or city operations.
