Pinacl, a leading North Wales tech company, has been chosen by Aberdeen City Council for its “intelligent” street lighting project. As part of the deal, the St Asaph based firm will deliver an initial 3,500 lighting controllers, LoRawan network and lighting Configuration Management System.
Pinacl will provide a ‘quick to install’ system to give the council complete control of their street lighting network. Collaborating with Lucy Zodion, a leader in the design and manufacture of smart street lighting equipment, the system will be designed to intelligently control, dim and monitor light levels via a secure cloud-based CMS.
Alasdair Rettie, Technical Director at Pinacl, said: “We are delighted to be working with Aberdeen to help them achieve their Smart City vision. This IoT project lets us build on our relationship with the Council which began with the design and installation of a city wide public WiFi network and the expansion of the Councils fibre network.
“The new city-wide IoT network provides a third layer of connectivity that will allow Aberdeen City council to efficiently deploy a variety of Smart City Solutions across the city.”
Councillor John Wheeler, of Aberdeen City Council, said: “We are at the forefront of transforming the digital infrastructure in Aberdeen which will bring benefits not only to the council through savings, but also to residents by being smarter about getting our lights repaired.”
