Tvilight uses smart controls to adjust the illumination and energy levels of streetlights.
Tvilight combines hardware, a tiny intelligent module that includes sensors, wireless communication, and a dimmer that can be installed on any existing dimmable streetlight, and advanced software that controls streetlights, monitors electricity usage, and analyzes traffic data. The system detects human and vehicular presence to control the light intensity in an area. The lights dim during office-peak hours, but when a pedestrian, bicycle, or automobile is detected, a chain of lights following the vehicle show the way.
Why you should care
Millions of streetlights burn all night, even when there is no activity. Tvilight estimates that the Netherlands alone pays over €300 million annually on street lighting electricity, with CO2 emissions of 1.6 million tons. Tvilight’s intelligent streetlights reduce electricity consumption and maintenance costs by up to 80% and 50% respectively, without compromising public safety.
