The smart lighting system put in place for the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Philadelphia will remain in place.


The Sensus VantagePoint Lighting Control Solution first lit the path along Independence Mall for attendees of the convention and can be brightened, flashed or dimmed to support public safety for all visitors to the City of Brotherly Love.


VantagePoint is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to keep public areas safe and promote economic development. The intelligent smart city solution uses a lighting control module, lighting software and the Sensus FlexNet communication network for greater control and automation of lights.


“By providing full metrology -- in addition to lighting control -- VantagePoint helps utilities and public service providers conserve energy, better manage assets, reduce costs and increase public safety,” said Charlie Nobles, director of lighting solutions at Sensus. “Our modules work for both LED and legacy area lights. That means greater control and reduced maintenance costs of lighting without having to change an entire network to LED technology.”


Sensus helps a wide range of public service providers -- from utilities to cities to industrial complexes and campuses -- do more with their infrastructure to improve quality of life in their communities.
