Lucy zodion worked with Calderdale Council to trial its Vizion technology, a central management system to control street lighting stock that minimizes energy consumption – and therefore costs and environmental impact – associated with local authority street lighting.
The project involved installing a ‘Node’ on each street light to be included in the trial. These are then linked to a ‘Collector’, which is positioned in a location that enables it to communicate with a number of Nodes with optimum effectiveness. The Collector is the hub of the system, collecting data about each street light using wireless technology and feeding it back to the Vizion system.
Vizion is a state of the art system that gives local authorities much greater control over their lighting needs, and as a result, reduces costs and impact on the environment.
