Smart street lighting solution
NovaLight is a complete solution for the remote management of public lighting. With NovaLight, cities can drastically reduce the energy consumption of their streetlights’ fleets. Cities can thus significantly reduce their environmental footprint while generating significant financial savings.

A wide range of state-of-the-art lighting controllers: a unique ecosystem in Europe
A wide range of controllers are available depending on your needs and use cases. Several types of installations are foreseen: on the heads of luminaires (standardized sockets), on poles, or offset on cables or walls. Connected in real-time to centralized software, these controllers can control the switching on and intensity of the streetlights to retrieve information on correct operation and consumption. They apply dimming profiles (changing the power depending on the hours of the night). In addition, some controllers are equipped with motion detectors to dim the lighting dynamically. It is also possible to vary a complete street according to the traffic levels measured by a counting radar. It is important to note that we manufacture our NovaLight controllers in Switzerland.
NovaLight enables the establishment of a Smart City network in the city
The NovaCom network enables devices installed within the city to exchange data with the software platform. It allows the deployment of an innovative, robust, and secure network that can scale up to the whole town. The NovaLight solution is strategic for setting up this network since it grants an access point to each installed streetlight. As the lights are pervasive within the city, NovaCom thus de facto creates a canvas across the city canopy that we can reuse to connect new solutions.
The scheduled dimming makes it possible to vary the intensity of the lights according to a schedule. Daily profiles are thus defined and planned for a geographical area, one or more days of the week, and a year.
30 to 40% energy savings
The dynamic reduction allows the most remarkable light power reduction, up to 80% depending on the settings. The lighting intensity is dimmed based on infrared sensors installed on each streetlight as soon as no road user is detected. Dynamic lighting is ideally suited for residential areas or streets with a driving speed of up to 50km/h.
60 to 80% energy savings
The volumetric dimming strategy allows the lighting intensity control of roads according to the traffic measured in real-time by a Doppler radar. If the traffic density on a specific street drops below certain thresholds, all the corresponding street lighting is accordingly reduced. This solution is a good compromise between dynamic lighting requiring the installation of sensors on each lamppost and planned lighting, which does not vary dynamically.

NovaCity, the integrated platform for a smart and sustainable city
NovaLight is an integral part of the NovaCity platform, which provides innovative digital solutions for the various public services of a town. These business solutions aim to optimize infrastructure to reduce energy consumption, reduce operational costs and improve the quality of life in the city. The platform integrates the latest industrial standards, thus promoting the integration of a varied set of multi-manufacturer equipment.
Smart street lighting software
The centralized NovaLight software allows remote management and monitoring of a public lighting installation. It is available out of the box in the cloud or can be installed in the city’s IT infrastructure.
Existing LED street lights can be retrofitted with intelligent control even if they are not equipped with a standard connector. For this purpose, a controller can be installed on the pole and connected to the control interface of the light from the hatch.
Our team is at your entire disposal to help you install the solution in your city (software installation, network installation, installation of controllers). We also offer training for installers and users.

NovaLight is a smart outdoor lighting solution. While streetlights traditionally remained at 100% capacity all night, NovaLight can reduce light intensity according to traffic density. Several dimming strategies are possible such as hourly programming, infrared motion sensors, or vehicle counting with Doppler radars. The energy savings achieved are measured, and NovaLight can reduce energy consumption by 30 to 80% depending on the use case. The solution also offers the possibility of detecting malfunctions, thus avoiding regular visual tours in the city.
