Future-proof your investment in LED streetlights with PLANet: 1M lights deployed, a proven business case and a free wireless IoT network
Introducing Telensa PLANet
Adding wireless remote control for your street, roadway and area lighting makes financial sense, whether you are switching to LED or retro-fitting to existing fixtures.  With remote control, you can save energy by only using the precise amount of light you need and by accurately measuring every watt used. You can cut maintenance costs with real-time fault monitoring and by using detailed operational intelligence to improve day-to-day effectiveness and planning. Telensa is the world’s #1 outdoor lighting control system, with one million telecells around the world. Our long-range low-power radio system offers the easiest deployment, we are compatible with all of the leading lighting manufacturers, and we integrate easily with other systems. What’s more, Telensa is at the forefront of the Internet of Things (IoT), enabling you to add smart city sensors to your streetlights, and to add smart city applications, such as parking, to your Telensa remote control network.
