Connect any LED street light with Philips CityTouch nodes
May 25, 2015 - Philips says city authorities can retrofit existing LED street lights with its new CityTouch connector node, a ‘plug & play’ system that uses the cellular network to connect LED street lights from any manufacturer for remote management by Philips CityTouch software.

The nodes plug into a standard socket and connect automatically to the software when installed. Once plugged into a luminaire, the connector nodes detect their location, connect the LED luminaire to the existing cellular network and start sending data to the back-end Philips CityTouch software. A light point automatically appears on the CityTouch map, the most important data is imported into the system, and with a few clicks the fixture can be controlled through Philips CityTouch remote management software.
