The solution enhances street lighting infrastructure and generates performance insights, via a series of connected nodes (installed on streetlights) that communicate with the Ki. platform. This is all supported by LoRaWAN for a secure, two-way flow of data.

From dimming and switching for energy efficiency and optimum illumination, to intuitive features that reduce maintenance and faults, Ki. provides in-depth insights into the behaviour of street lighting infrastructure.
