Smart Lighting for Smart Cities.

Tondo is Smart Lighting made simple. Easy to install and easy to scale, Tondo is the starting line for your Smart City vision.

The Road To Energy Efficiency


The World Bank estimates that LED lighting is 40% – 60% more energy efficient than traditional lighting technologies. A study of adaptive IoT lighting control showed that the effective configuration and design of Smart Lighting projects based on advanced IoT street lighting control systems can increase the ROI on an LED lamp upgrade project by an additional 2x. Tondo can deliver immediate top-line expense reductions while also giving you a secure network for future Smart City projects for your organization.

A Scalable IoT Network


Lighting is everywhere. With Tondo, you’ll start with a flexible street- and area-lighting control system that will establish a secure wireless IoT network for your Smart City, Smart Building, and Smart Facility vision. Additional sensors can be added from Tondo or other sensor manufacturers that connect to your Tondo Internet of Things (IoT) network, eliminating the need for multiple networks for each Smart IoT project.

The Tondo advantage.

2X Faster Installation


Tondo has a patented plug-and-play design, making it simpler and faster for technicians or contractors tasked with installing your Smart Lighting IoT network without the need for onsite software configuration. Fewer installation issues during your project roll-out means you’ll hit your project timelines and stay within your budget projections.

Cloud-Based Remote Management


Control an unlimited number of IoT connected network devices from Tondo’s cloud-based management console. Tondo provides a visual interactive map, full access to flexible control and lighting profiles, and best of all, secure user profiles for managing access to your Smart IoT network. 

The Tondo management console captures a wide range of energy, event, and performance data that can be captured, exported, or integrated with your other enterprise tools via its documented REST API.

Every Tondo controller contains an embedded ARM Cryptocell CC310 security component with a unique encryption key for each controller, and a multi-layer security architecture. Two-way communications are encrypted with secure MQTT-SN and HTTPS protocols based on TLS 1.2, and Tondo firmware can be updated “over the air” from the Tondo cloud-based management console.



The Tondo Smart IoT network communicates separately from the public internet via cellular LTE and Bluetooth communications. Cellular communications support eGPRS, NB-IoT, and CAT-M1 standards to. Bluetooth 5 Mesh is used between each device to form an accessible, fast mesh network suitable for transmitting video-grade content as well as lower demand sensor data.

Commercial Areas

commercial areas

Tondo’s Smart Lighting IoT solutions provide full control over the quality and cost of lighting your commercial outdoor spaces.


Tondo’s Smart Lighting IoT solutions enable you to tailor your lighting needs to a wide range of events with flexible over-the-air network control.

Compatible with any type of outdoor lighting.


Metal halide lighting are used in overhead lighting, commercial, industrial, and public spaces, sports arenas, factories. They have twice the efficiency of mercury vapor lights, and 3x – 5x efficiency over incandescent lighting. They have an operating life of approximately 6,000 – 15,000 hours.


High pressure sodium lights give off a signature “yellow” light. They provide a broader spectrum of light than Low Pressure Sodium lights, but they still distort the color of objects they illuminate, inhibiting color vision at night. They are more efficient than Metal Halide, and have an operating life of approximately 24,000 hours.


Low-Pressure Sodium (LPS) lights have the same characteristic “yellow” as their HPS counterparts, but have an even narrower color range, which increases the distortion of color at night. They have a shorter operating life at 12,000 – 18,000 hours.


LED lighting is the newest benchmark for outdoor area and roadway lighting. They have the advantage of directional focus to reduce light pollution, are highly efficient, have greater color accuracy, and have an operating life of 50,000 – 100,000 hours or more. LEDs can be designed to generate a wide range of color to suit their operating environment, are much smaller, and have a fast switching time.


Phosphor-converted amber (PCA) LED lights are twice as efficient as “true amber” LED lighting, but have a much wider color spectrum which can interfere with wildlife foraging and migration patterns unless paired with a filter to reduce the color spectrum. Similar to HPS and LPS lighting however, the amber color distorts the color of objects in its area. They have an operating life similar to other LED lighting.


Narrow-band amber (NBA) LED lights is a relatively new technology with a narrower color spectrum and less interference with wildlife that are affected by lighting at night, and less interference with astronomy. NBA LEDs give off a similar “yellow” as HPS and LPS lights, but have a lower efficiency than Phosphor-coated amber (PCA) LED lighting. They have an operating life similar to other LED lighting.

Tondo’s system brings me to the 21st century. Not only do
I get remote control of the lighting in the city and savings
energy, it also opens up a lot of possibilities for the future.
