SAN DIEGO, CA --- Sensity Systems Inc., provider of an Internet of Things (IoT) platform for Smart Cities, announces an extension to its NetSense Core Node product, the Core Node EX-C, that enables outdoor smart lighting and sensor data to use cellular data networks. Extending Sensity’s existing portfolio that uses Wi-Fi networking, the new cellular Core Node option makes it easier to implement smart LED lighting controls in residential, suburban and other areas of a city or metropolitan area that lack sufficient Wi-Fi coverage.
Sensity worked with AT&T to enable the new cell core node technology, which takes advantage of the fact that cellular coverage is nearly ubiquitous across populated regions. The Core Node EX-C provides full smart outdoor LED lighting control that includes scheduling, dimming, ambient light detection, and energy monitoring and management. Optional auxiliary port enables motion-based lighting control, environmental temperature sensing, and auxiliary power and sensor expansion capabilities.
Many Sensity Smart City applications—addressing urban concerns such as parking management, public safety in large gatherings of people and traffic congestion—exploit the high throughput and low latency of Wi-Fi networks, which are prevalent around urban districts. While suburban and residential areas don’t face the same Smart City application needs as urban centers, they still can take advantage of smart outdoor lighting control, for which cellular networks are well suited.
Demonstration at LIGHTFAIR – April 26-28 in San Diego – Sensity Booth #537
