You could decide how to switch and dim the lights in selected areas of your city, delivering light exactly when and where it is needed — all by a simple mouse click. You could significantly reduce energy consumption and operational complexity, cutting costs and optimizing maintenance processes at the same time, with benefits to both the environment and your municipal budget. Planning, controlling, and managing your entire lighting infrastructure would be easier than ever before. And thanks to web-based automatic updates, your system would always be at the forefront of the industry’s latest developments.
