Early Stage Startup


Intelligent Lighting – Platform for Smart City

Elevator Pitch

Lighting produces CO2 emissions and uses energy. Have you ever wondered why so many streetlights are fully lit in areas where this is not necessary?
The next time you are sitting on an airplane at night, take a look outside, and watch the thousands of lamps that illuminate the streets, even when there is nobody around.
Excessive and unnecessary lighting is an immense waste of money and energy. Additionally, it causes CO2 emissions and light pollution, which have been found to have a detrimental impact on human health and disrupt ecosystems and wildlife.

Powering the 91 million streetlights in Europe alone costs 10 billion Euros annually. These CO2 emissions amount to 40 million tons, which is equivalent to 20 million cars annually. Our intelligent lighting solutions cut energy costs by up to 80%, lower maintenance costs by up to 50 % and reduce light pollution and CO2 emissions

Today, 80% of Europeans live in cities. Despite the fact that the cities only occupy about 2% of land area, they consume 75% of resources and responsible for 80% of all CO2 emissions. In cities worldwide, an extensive lighting network is already in place. This existing infrastructure can easily be transformed into a wireless backbone for smart city applications, due to the easy plug & play solution that Tvilight solutions guarantee. This minimizes installation costs and maximizes utility for cities and citizens.

We integrate hardware and software to create a city-wide intelligent wireless platform for smart city applications. Our intelligent lighting solutions enable lighting on demand, based on state-of-the-art presence detection sensors. Our product portfolio consists of:

1. CitySense is a revolutionary sensor-based wireless outdoor lighting control device which enables adaptive lighting. It is compatible with both conventional and new lighting infrastructures such as LED. It is a plug and play product, ensuring a quick installation with a minimum investment. CitySense units can communicate wirelessly with one another as well as other Tvilight lighting control devices such as Skylite.

2. SkyLite is a plug and play wireless lighting controller, which allows remote monitoring, management and control of outdoor luminaires. A range of SkyLite models can be installed internally or externally to lamps based on the project needs and on the available infrastructure. Combining SkyLite with CitySense, offers a more adaptive solution and high scalability.

3. NightSky is a stand-alone lighting control device featuring a revolutionary inbuilt astronomical clock. This real-time clock helps NightSky to adapt to the local sunset/sunrise times, winter/summer seasons and weekday/weekend profiles based on the geographical location

4. CityManager, is a web-based lighting management software that allows remote monitoring, management and control of entire lighting infrastructures, providing an in-depth overview of the lighting systems. The software is compatible with Tvilight lighting controls and several other open-protocol hardware and software solutions that are available on the market.
