How would you describe your solution in a few words?
LEDCity is developing a sensor-controlled lighting system that saves an average of 90 percent energy compared to conventional light sources by automatically adjusting the light to the actual light duration and intensity required. Thanks to the lower power consumption and the longer service life of the light source, a total of around CHF 300-500 can be saved per LEDCity product used. Up to five sensors are integrated in each lamp. The data collected in this way can also be used to optimise operation.
