The photocell works together with a socket and driver to form an interface that communicates, enhancing lighting control and data collection. The PrecizionHALO offers sensory inputs while also communicating with other luminaires in a network – only made possible through the SR driver, which provides power directly.  By incorporating all components within this independent eco-system, the PrecizionHALO has been developed with a smaller footprint than traditional modules, which greatly increases luminaire design flexibility.

Smart LED lighting fixtures with sensing and communication capabilities, such as the PrecizionHALO, can significantly improve the efficiency, maintenance and running costs of outdoor lighting networks, giving municipal leaders great benefits, both now and in the future.
