Tondo Smart Lighting Control and Smart City Network
Tondo develops the world’s most secure and scalable network connected lighting for Smart Cities.
Our intelligent lighting controllers and cloud-based Smart City management platform provides a standards-based Smart City network that can decrease your cost of LED street and area lighting by over 60%, and your sensor and device deployment costs by up to 80%.
A Tondo Smart Lighting solutions can reduce the energy, operations, and maintenance costs of street lighting by as much as 150% over a simple LED light upgrade.
Lighting poles are everywhere there are people, vehicles, buildings, services, and utilities, and are the perfect platform for the Smart IoT Network
Tondo’s Smart Lighting solutions provides the Smart City loT network for connecting to sensors and other devices that support your Smart City vision.
Lighting poles are conveniently electrified to support Smart City communications devices.
Street lights are well-positioned up high for wireless communications to sensors, people, and vehicles.

Tondo’s Smart Lighting-based network makes your Smart City vision possible.
The Tondo Advantage
ADVANCED SMART LIGHTING CONTROL
Dusk-to-Dawn lighting control provides light even when it isn’t necessary, wasting energy and increasing sky-glow that interferes with human and animal health.
Smart Lighting can reduce the operating costs of LED streetlights by over 60%.
Tondo’s Smart Lighting solutions are cash-flow positive versus Dusk-to-Dawn control and break-even on project costs in as little as 3 years.
THE SMART CITY NETWORK
A Smart Lighting-enabled Smart City network can reduce your sensor deployment costs by over 80%.
Most sensor solutions use proprietary networks or individually connect to mobile cellular networks. This approach becomes uneconomical at a city-scale.
Tondo Smart Lighting solutions turn your outdoor lighting and light poles into value-creating assets for your Smart City and Smart Enterprise.
Tondo’s controllers identify the lighting they are connected to, and configure themselves in a few seconds. This provides significantly lower project deployment costs.
Tondo’s plug-and-play and automatic configuration also eliminates the need for extensive training for installing contractors.
Tondo will save you thousands of dollars in project deployment costs and reduce your project deployment timelines.
MANAGE MORE THAN LIGHTING
Tondo’s Cloud-IQ Central Management System (CMS)is the most advanced platform for managing lighting, sensors, and devices connected to the Tondo Smart Network.
Tondo Cloud-IQ allows you to monitor, configure, and provide secure software updates across the network that avoids costly truck rolls.
Tondo’s CMS provides robust energy usage, sensor data, and device status reporting and can integrate easily with existing data warehouse and business analytics tools for consolidated reporting.
Tondo is the first to implement hardware-based cryptographic security and “root-of-trust”in every one of its controllers.
This ensures that private encryption keys that protect access to the system are not accessible through software, firmware, or by invasive means such as electronic probing.
Most Smart Lighting and IoT sensor solutions use shared software-based certificates, leaving your critical infrastructure vulnerable to bad actors.
OPEN STANDARDS INTEROPERABILITY
We designed our hardware and software products for interoperability with current and newly-emerging standards to help you avoid vendor lock-in to proprietary technologies.
We support common global lighting connectivity and control standards, wireless cellular, sensor, and device connectivity standards.
Our secure over-the-air updates enable us to keep you up-to-date.
HIGH VALUE SOLUTIONS
Like LED retrofit projects, reducing energy and operational costs with Smart Lighting is easily measured and provides immediate impact.
The benefits of reduced sensor and device connectivity are also easy to measure.
Our Smart Lighting and Smart City network solutions can typically break even in five to six years, and as little as three years.

Your Smart Lighting and Smart City network requires high availability “always-on” operation.
We’ve taken great care in designing our products to withstand unexpected shock, vibration, electrical interference, and power anomalies.
We offer a range of warranty options up to 10 years and our Cloud-IQ Management System can be deployed on our cloud or yours.
A Solution That Works for You
STREETS, ROADWAYS, AND HIGHWAYS
Roadway and highway lighting represents 36% of all outdoor lighting in the U.S.
LED lamp retrofit projects are an easy choice, because they deliver up to 40% in energy savings and GHG footprint reduction. A Tondo Smart Lighting solution can deliver as much as 3.5x of the value you get from LED lamps versus older HID lamps.
Tondo can provide you with the communications and control infrastructure for Smart City and Smart Enterprise sensors and devices – completely paid for with the energy, GHG, operations & maintenance, and asset lifecycle benefits of Smart Lighting.
Parking lot lighting represents the 2nd largest category of outdoor lighting.
Five percent of the entire United States is covered by parking lots, with as many as 630m non-household indoor and outdoor parking lot spaces in the U.S.
Tondo’s Smart Lighting not only reduces the operating and maintenance costs of lighting – but also enables real-time control and can reduce the cost of your parking sensor and connected device deployment by up to 80%.
COMMERCIAL OUTDOOR LIGHTING
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, commercial outdoor area lighting represents 64% of all outdoor lighting in the United States, and 6% of global energy consumption . Over half our carbon footprint comes from electricity and 17% of that comes from outdoor lighting.
Lighting energy costs represent approximately 10% of the total operating budget of a commercial building and 31% of the total energy budget.
This means a Tondo Smart Lighting solution can reduce your energy and other operational expenses by as much as 40% and add up to 4% to the net operating income for your organization.
RAILWAY AND PUBLIC TRANSIT LIGHTING
Lighting for airports, railways, and rapid transit systems represent the fourth largest source of outdoor lighting. Balancing safety with sensible cost management is a challenge.
Tondo’s Smart Lighting solutions can reduce the payback period on LED retrofit projects by 40% or more. At the same time, Smart Lighting can provide greater control over delivering the appropriate amount of light when it is needed, improving safety and security for all users.
What Can You Connect to Your Tondo Smart Lighting?
COST-EFFECTIVE SENSOR AND DEVICE CONNECTIVITY
Today, most sensors and connected devices such as cameras use proprietary networks that lock you in to a specific vendor solution, or use independent cellular connections that make many sensor projects cost-prohibitive.
Conencting sensors and other devices to Tondo’s Smart Lighting-enabled Smart City network can reduce your sensor and connected device operating costs by 80% or more.
Tondo’s system brings me to the 21st century. I get remote control of the lighting in the city and energy savings. It also opens up a lot of the possibilities for the future.
