Automated Installation

FIELD INSTALLATION IN UNDER 30 SECONDS

Plug-and-play means many different things to different people. Here’s what we think it means:

  1. Plug.
  2. Twist.
  3. Automatic connection to Tondo’s Cloud-IQ CMS.
  4. Automatic sensing of the lighting type and driver control it needs .
  5. Automatically sends GPS mapping,  controller, and connected device/lighting information to the Tondo Cloud-IQ CMS.
  6. Automatic download and activation of the correct configuration profile.
  7. Success message sent to installer’s mobile device via the Tondo Mobile-IQ app for Android and iOS

If you have an existing NEMA or Zhaga connector on your lamp housing, it’s that easy. No wiring, no in-field configuration required.

If you do not have a built-in connector, we have on-post and in-pole installation options.

    Tondo Product FAQ

    Has Tondo deployed to large projects?

    Yes. Tondo’s individual projects have exceeded 100,000 lamps.

    Can Tondo's Cloud-IQ Central Management System be installed in an on-premise server?

    No. Tondo’s Cloud-IQ CMS resides on Amazon’s AWS cloud platform. However, customers may use Tondo’s APIs to pull data into their own Operations Management Systems (OMS) or analytics and reporting platforms.

    Can customers create custom reports using Tondo's Cloud-IQ CMS?

    This feature is coming soon, planned for 2022. In the meantime, Tondo customers can use Tondo’s API to pull data into their reporting and analytics tools.

    What does Tondo mean by "plug and play"?

    Once connected, a Tondo controller will query the type of lighting it is connected to, the sensors or devices connected to it, the GPS/GLONASS location data, and send that and the device information to the Tondo Cloud-IQ CMS and apply a default or custom profile to the device for automated configuration and instant operation.

    How secure is a Tondo device and network?

    Tondo’s Smart Lighting, device controllers, and Smart City IoT network go far beyond simple AES certificate-based encryption used by other companies that share a single security certificate.

    Tondo uses the ARM Cryptocell 310 Security-on-Chip (SOC) that enables each device to be secured independently so that a successful attack on one device does not compromise the network or other devices.

    The Tondo SoC also secures over-the-air firmware updates (FOTA) so that an attacker cannot upload a corrupted firmware update to any device.

    You can read more about the ARM Cryptocell 300 family at this link.

    Does Tondo provide pre-sale support to designers, architects, and systems integrators?

    Absolutely. Just choose one of the buttons on our website to get in touch, and we will work with designers, architects, and systems integrators on their projects and proposals.

    Is Tondo looking for new distributors or channel partners?

    Yes. We are looking for leading distributors, systems integrators, and channel partners who have great relationships with their customers and want to add the best Smart Lighting and Smart City IoT network solution to their line cards.

    Contact us using the Contact Us button on this page, and let’s talk!

    Does every Tondo controller need a cellular connection?

    No. Tondo controllers connect with each other, and use any controller with the cellular (EGPRS or LTE 4G (which works across a 5G network) as a “gateway” to communicate with the Tondo Cloud-IQ Central Management Software (CMS).

    This significantly reduces both device costs as well as the costs of cellular data communications.

    Am I locked into a proprietary solution?

    No. Tondo’s devices are based on established technology standards for connection (DALI, DALI2, D4i, ANSI C136.10, ANSI C136.41, Zhaga Book 18, MODBUS, Bluetooth 5 LE, EGPRS, LSI analog, and LTE 4G).

    We are preparing for TALQ certification that will be an over-the-air firmware update to existing devices so that our customers can choose how to manage their Tondo-connected devices.

    Tondo provides a documented API for integration with third-party software and custom software applications.

    With Tondo, your investment – and data – is secure.

    What happens if my cellular provider's network goes down?

    Tondo devices will operate with their current profile stored in the firmware autonomously. Dimming and on/off operations are not depedent on an “always-on” cellular network connection.

    Built-in sensor data is cached in the controllers until a connection is restored to prevent loss of data.

    Any pending updates sent from the CMS will be updated when the connection is restored.

    Eddystone is an open-source Bluetooth advertising protocol originally designed by Google. It can be used by mobile device applications to deliver improved proximity-based experiences that include applications such as Google Maps.

    These packets can be discovered with any Bluetooth LE APIs such as Core Bluetooth on iOS, or android.bluetooth.le on Android. You can also use them with Google’s Nearby Messages API, which can be integrated into an iOS or Android app, and receive “messages” in those apps when a person enters or exits a range of beacons.

    You can read more about it on github.com/google/eddystone.

    Lighting control cabinets typically control a group of street lights or advertising signage from a "control cabinet". These controls have historically provided on-off functionality based on the time of day using an "astronomical clock"-based switch or daylight photosensor. Lights are controlled in groups with no individual control over a specific light.

    Although new controllers such as Tondo's Edge-IQ controller have replaced the cabinet-based approach with new technologies that include advanced dimming, remote cloud-control, and support for functionality including sensors and switches, there are many outdoor lights and signs that do not support on-lamp control. Tondo's Cabinet-IQ controller provides new advanced IoT technology support for existing cabinet-controlled lighting.

    RS-485, also known as TIA-485(-A) or EIA-485, is a serial communications standard.

    Electrical signalling is balanced, and multipoint systems are supported. Digital communications networks implementing the standard can be used effectively over long distances and in electrically noisy environments.

    The TALQ Consortium has established a globally accepted standard for management software interfaces to configure, command, control and monitor heterogeneous outdoor device networks (ODN) including smart street lighting.

    This way interoperability between Central Management Software (CMS) and Outdoor Device Networks (ODN, so called ‘gateways’) for smart city applications from different vendors is enabled, such that a single CMS can control different ODNs in different parts of a city or region.

    A RESTful API is an architectural style for an application program interface (API) that uses HTTP requests to access and use data.

    The API spells out the proper way for a developer to write a program requesting services from an operating system or other application.

    You can read more from the source of this definition at TechTarget here.

    Normally open(NO) and Normally closed (NC) are terms used to define the states that switches, sensors or relay contacts are under when they are not activated.

    A NO contact or a normally open contact is the one that remains open until a certain condition is satisfied such as a button being pressed or some other manner of activation such as those based on temperature, pressure, etc.

    A NC contact or normally closed contact is the exact opposite of NO contact by function. It remains closed until a certain condition is satisfied.

    CAT-M/LTE-M and NB-IoT are similar but have differences that may make one suitable over another, or simply selected based on the support for one or the other that is available in your area.

    NB-IoT uses a narrow bandwidth of 200 kHz, where CAT-M uses 1.4 MHz. The maximum data rate for NB-IoT is ~ 250 kb per second, with CAT-M1 reaching ~ 1 Mbps. CAT-M is marginally less energy efficient than NB-IoT. Although NB-IoT has a lower speed, both NB-IoT and CAT-M are suitable for sensor communications since sensors typically do not require much bandwidth.

    Both NB-IoT and CAT-M1 are supported under the 5G technology specifications and therefore are ideal for selecting as a standard for sensor communications.

     

    CAT-M wireless (aka LTE-M) is a low-power wide area network (LPWAN) cellular data transmission standard that operates over the data and physical layer. CAT-M was designed for IoT projects, with an average upload speed between 200 kbps and 400 kbps.

    A DIN rail is a metal rail of a standard type widely used for mounting circuit breakers and industrial control equipment inside equipment racks.

    IP stands for "ingress protection". For IP67, this means:

    "6" describes protection of solid particles: No ingress of dust; complete protection against contact (dust-tight). A vacuum must be applied. Test duration of up to 8 hours based on airflow.

    "7" describes the protection from water: Ingress of water in harmful quantity shall not be possible when the enclosure is immersed in water under defined conditions of pressure and time (up to 1 meter (3 ft 3 in) of submersion). Test duration: 30 minutes.

    Modbus is a data communications protocol originally published in 1979. Modbus has become a de facto standard communication protocol and is now a commonly available means of connecting and communicating with industrial electronic devices.

    This table describes the differences between 3G, 4G, and 5G cellular communications standards.

    4G devices will work on 4G LTE networks and the earlier cellular technologies, including 3G, EGPRS, and 2G.

    Smart city sensors require very little bandwidth, and 3G EGPRS and 4G LTE can easily support the required data rates.

    5G networks are relatively new, and most 5G deployments use a combination of 4G and 5G networks.

    The NEMA ANSI C137.4-2021 builds on the NEMA C137.41 7-pin connector standard and the DALI communication protocol. It has additional characteristics and features that align very closely with the D4i family of specifications from the DALI Alliance.

    D4i and ANSI C137.4-2021 specify the digital communication between luminaires and devices including sensors and network lighting controllers. The expanded ANSI C137.4-2021 now includes energy reporting data and diagnostics and maintenance data.

    Tondo Mobile Field App Dashboard view screenshot

    The NEMA ANSI C137.10 standard specifies roadway and area lighting equipment connector compatibility. The 3-pin standard does not provide for dimming control, but provides for on/off operation. The later standard C137.41 adds dimming control (5- and 7-pin connectors) and sensor control (7-pin connectors). The newer C137.4-2021 standard provides enhanced functionality and compatibility with the DALI D4i lighting and sensor control standard.

    The NEMA ANSI C137.41 5-pin connector variant adds support for dimming control, but does not include sensor communications support which is supported by the 7-pin connector.

    DALI, or Digital Addressable Lighting Interface, is a dedicated protocol for digital lighting control that enables the easy installation of robust, scalable and flexible lighting networks.

    Wiring is relatively simple; DALI power and data is carried by the same pair of wires, without the need for a separate bus cable.
