smart public lighting for fast growing cities

inteliLIGHT® is a smart public lighting remote management solution that ensures that the right amount of light is provided where and when needed. In-depth grid management gives an accurate real-time feedback of any change occurring along the grid, reduces energy loss and offers advanced maintenance optimization tools. Using the existing infrastructure, you save money and transform the existing distribution level network into an intelligent infrastructure of the future.
smart public lighting benefits

smart public lighting architecture

inteliLIGHT Hardware is what you see on the streets: smart controllers for each luminaire and control devices for the transformer stations / feeder pillars. The inteliLIGHT Central Management Software is used by city managers to control and optimize public lighting operation, and also for maintenance tasks. Furthermore, it supports smart applications and can work as a buffer to integrate street lighting into any smart city management solution. Public or private Communication is set up to link the two components, to ensure secure and timely deployment of commands and feedback.

smart public lighting architecture

smart public lighting hardware & form factors

Smart streetlight controllers are the base of every smart public lighting project. They can be connected to the power cabinet (directly to the lighting panel power source) or to the lamp, and can be managed via a street lighting software. To keep deployment cost at a minimum and to ensure fast lighting controller installation, inteliLIGHT engineers have developed several mounting solutions: either with standardized connectors (NEMA, Zhaga) or wired (embedded, in-pole).

smart public lighting NEMA controller

NEMA socket

Plug-and-play upgrade for lamps with compatible 7-pin NEMA socket (ANSI C136.41), with full lamp management and feedback functionality.

smart public lighting Zhaga controller

ZHAGA socket

Plug-and-play upgrade for lamps with compatible ZHAGA socket (book 18), with full lamp management and feedback functionality.

smart public lighting pole mounted controller

inside pole 

Designed to be installed directly into the lighting pole, making it less visible from an aesthetic point of view and allowing easier access for deployment teams.


Minimum impact on the lamp design, full management and feedback capabilities right from the lamp manufacturer.

smart public lighting communication technologies

LoRaWAN™, NB-IoT, Sigfox, LonWorks® PLC, Wi-SUN. We use any open protocol communication technology or combine them to meet the smart public lighting project’s needs.

inteliLIGHT® StreetLight Control software

The software integrates perfectly with inteliLIGHT® controllers and communication devices and is also compatible with any other open-protocol hardware solution available on the market (third party end devices using PLC, LoRaWAN™, 2G/ 3G/ LTE, NB-IoT, Wi-SUN or Sigfox).

smart public lighting software

built today with the future in mind

In accordance to its open architecture philosophy, inteliLIGHT’s smart public lighting solution embeds outstanding integrations and can natively adapt to multi-vendor hardware and software, as it comes with north-bound (software) and south-bound (hardware) API connectivity. Moreover, Flashnet’s engineers are continuously working to integrate more standards, for out-of-the-box connectivity.
