Networked Solar Lighting
Fonroche Connect is a smart lighting system designed for autonomous solar lighting. Fonroche Lighting developed the system to enhance nation-wide lighting infrastructure projects. Fonroche has already connected thousands of systems in Africa, South America, and Europe. Fonroche Lighting America is bringing the benefits of networked solar lighting to the USA.
How Networked Solar Street Lighting Saves Money
Smart cities experience savings on operations and maintenance through networked lighting. Instead of relying on 311 calls and site visits, maintenance managers can identify faults and determine next steps from their desktop. Reduced maintenance trips translate into reduced costs.
Track Performance and Sustainability Metrics
With Fonroche Connect you'll be able to track more than just lighting. You'll be able to measure your contribution to energy targets. You'll have access to CO2 off-set data, the energy you've generated, and even the amount of stored energy you have on hand.
Unlike traditional smart lighting systems, Fonroche Connect functions without utility power. Communication and illumination continue during planned or emergency utility power outages.
You can identify lighting systems that are operating and even relocate them to support recovery efforts.
Network Ready Solar Lighting Systems
Fonroche SmartLights include an FCC Certified 365 Power Center that is "Fonroche Connect" ready. The addition of a gateway(s) will allow you to activate Fonroche Connect portal access. You will be able to track locations and status of street lights, request lighting profile changes, measure CO2 off-set, track energy production, and measure stored energy on hand. You can also view maps to visualize street lighting projects and their status.
