With the service ‘Dynamic weather based lighting’, you can save maximum energy without compromising safety in rainy weather!
The energy transition is in full swing and all over the world people are looking for new ways to save as much energy as possible to meet climate targets. This is no different for public lighting. Besides the use of increasingly efficient LEDs, an important trend is the search for solutions using less light.
Solutions such as motion sensors and more economical dimming regimes are increasingly used and these help to reduce energy consumption. An important condition here, however, is that the safety of road users is compromised as little as possible.
However well all chosen technical solutions work, sometimes it is still undesirable to have less light in public spaces. In hazardous weather conditions, for instance, safety is paramount. It is a given that both PIR and radar sensors do not function as well in heavy rainfall.
Sustainder introduces ‘Dynamic weather based lighting’ for this purpose. For this service, Sustainder combines standard connectivity with real-time weather data to temporarily increase lighting in case of heavy rain.
The advantage of this is that motion sensors and/or an economical dimming regime can be chosen while still ensuring safety.

Sustainder facilitates the transformation of the public lighting network into a sustainable, future-proof and smart infrastructure. We believe that the existing infrastructure of public lighting has ideal properties to act as a carrier of a smart city network. Think of the fine mesh level of the network, the presence of power connection and the ideal height for sensor and communication applications. We therefore believe that many other disciplines within the government should have access to this high-quality network. In the following five themes, we describe how other stakeholders can also have an interest in the transition to a sustainable, future-proof and smart infrastructure.
