Supervision platform
of public lighting

Local authorities can remotely monitor and control their light points using an open-source IoT platform.

Kawantech used Kuzzle IoT as an IoT platform to connect streetlights in cities and adopt eco-friendly lighting.

Kawantech equips the lighting points with two intelligent devices, the Kara sensor and the DALI D4i LED driver, whose data are fed into the Kuzzle IoT platform and are exploited via business dashboards.
With Kawantech and Kuzzle IoT solutions, monitor and optimize your public lighting park to meet the needs of your users and make energy savings by reducing 3 your consumption.
Public lighting becomes intelligent to light more accurately and protect the environment!

Energy savings

“Today, the revolution is in the territories. The economic shock of current energy prices is a real opportunity to move faster: better manage your lighting, more quickly, and get better trained in new technologies. The new Dali and Zhaga/D4i standards are mature and now allow for simplified management of public lighting. Kawantech supports the Territoires d’Energies (TE) and offers inventory management via the open-source platform – developed at our request by Kuzzle – to all TE. This platform is available for free access in the SEM “Énergie Commune 81″: the data of the territories are stored by a public/private company which guarantees their digital sovereignty.”

Supervision of light points

The Kuzzle IoT platform allows Kawantech to :

  • Switch on / off public lighting
  • Define lighting rules on the light intensity that vary according to the time of night or the period of the year
  • Manage the level of light intensity directly from the platform
  • Alert in case of sensor malfunction.

The new open standards

Kuzzle IoT is an open platform, interoperable and exploitable with the Zhaga standard and the D4i drivers to connect and control public lighting, whatever their model or technology:

  • The Zhaga standard makes streetlights upgradeable and repairable to avoid the need to buy new equipment.

  • The D4i drivers allow fine and total control of its LED park.

Combined with the Kuzzle IoT platform, these two technologies guarantee an optimized operation of the luminous points.

Visualisation of the data

With Kuzzle Dashboard Builder, Kawantech can :

  • Integrate and analyze heterogeneous data from different sources
  • Visualize on a map the locations of streetlights in real time
  • Generate customized dashboards according to their needs to follow the activity as closely as possible (operating hours, light intensity…).
Kuzzle x Kawantech

Kawantech is a Toulouse-based SME with expertise in public lighting and intelligent mobility since 2011.
They design and assemble all their products in Toulouse, in particular, Kara TM: a shape discrimination sensor integrated into the streetlight and capable of interpreting the use of the public highway
to adapt the light to the needs of users in real-time while reducing the consumption of LED streetlights by a factor of 3.
In 2021, Kawantech will be the company with the best scores in the world for reducing public lighting consumption in metropolitan areas.
