LonMark International Smart City

Smart Cities are a prime focus for LonMark International. Our strong support for the outdoor lighting market has enabled many new applications that are utilizing the existing control networking infrastructure of the smart city streetlighting backbone. Municipalities worldwide are discovering the benefits of intelligent city infrastructure networks to reduce their network costs while improving light efficiency and safety. The rising price of electricity is responsible for the majority of the increase in streetlight operation budgets. It’s now becoming strategic and compelling for cities to implement solutions to measure, analyze, and reduce electricity use in order to reduce energy spending, decrease maintenance costs, challenge their electricity providers, and contribute to the reduction of CO₂emissions. This infrastructure is now enabling a wide variety of valuable applications such as environmental sensors, smart parking systems to reduce urban congestion, emergency service coordination, advanced security services, and many more.

The LonMark Smart City Council (SCC) has been formed to address the needs of smart city planners, managers, and solution providers. The key objectives of the Smart City Council are defined in the committee charter and we invite all to engage in this effort. Download the Charter Here.

Benefits of using a networked street lighting system:

  • Reduced energy consumption by up to 40%;
  • Lower maintenance costs by up to 50%;
  • Remote monitoring and control;
  • Diagnostic reporting to identify irregular lamp behavior, individual lamp failure, and lamp temperature;
  • On/off control of individual lamps or segments;
  • Ability to remotely adjust light levels based on time, traffic, weather, season;
  • Integration with police and emergency services for lamp flashing;
  • Increase driver, pedestrian, and resident safety;
  • Serve as an infrastructure for new services such as traffic sensing.

Streetlights from different LonMark members all connected in a single network.

LonMark International is a significant promoter of networked street lights using the ISO/IEC 14908 series of standards for networked control.  Companies offering products based on this international standard are encouraged to adopt Interoperability Guidelines from LonMark International to ensure their products are interoperable with those offered by other companies.  For municipalities, specifying products certified by LonMark International provides a selection of products and solutions offered by a variety of suppliers, reducing the cost of installing and supporting systems over their lifetime.
