Citybox®: the intelligent public lighting network
Citybox® is a unique patented solution that meets 3 needs:
- improvements in the energy performance of a public lighting network by reducing electricity consumption,
- reactive network management through real-time remote management of the operation of the deployed services,
- the possibility of deploying low-cost digital services (such as Wi-Fi, video surveillance, sound systems, and festive illuminations).
This solution, integrated at the base of street lights or on facades, transforms the lighting network into a communicative intelligent infrastructure. In particular, it modulates lighting according to the weather, the time of day, the neighbourhood, and maintenance needs.
Thanks to Citybox®, the city also becomes:
- greener, l’éclairage s’adaptant au rythme de vie des habitants,
- safer, through the possibility of deploying a video surveillance system,
- more communicative, with new digital services like Wi-Fi
- more lively, with innovative sound systems and festive illuminations.
