Smart Area Lighting for Commercial Buildings
Commercial outdoor area lighting represents the largest installation base of outdoor area lighting and the most significant opportunity for savings.
Smart Area Lighting can decrease your electricity and greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint by 30% in addition to your LED upgrade savings and 4% to your bottom-line, while improving people’s sense of safety and security.
Reducing Energy Costs and Increasing Safety
Selecting the optimal lamp color and temperature – even with LED lamps – can enable you to use Tondo’s Smart Lighting management to reduce your electricity use and the GHG footprint of your outdoor lighting by as much as 30% in addition to the savings from a typical LED lamp upgrade.
At the same time, Smart Lighting controls can decrease on-site crimes by up to 60%, and the combined on-site and surrounding area of the site by up to 35%.
Most organizations do not have a single lamp type – they have a mix of different technologies, color temperatures, reflectors, and lenses that affect the brightness and distribution of light.
You can tailor Tondo’s custom Smart Lighting profiles to each type of lamp and the area it is illuminating, so you can minimize your energy costs while making pedestrians feel and be safer.
In other words, the lighting intervention led to a 60% reduction in nighttime outdoor index crimes. Inclusive of potential spillovers, we estimate that lighting reduced outdoor nighttime index crimes by 35%.

Remote Area Lighting Monitoring and Control
MONITOR AND MANAGE YOUR AREA LIGHTING ANYWHERE
Tondo’s networked lighting controllers allow your operations team to monitor the status of every connected parking lot light and get notified immediately of unusual events.
You can create and update enhanced energy-saving lighting control profiles for any number of your properties.
You can capture data and status on connected sensors, and roll up your data to other operations management and business analytics tools.
Our lighting controllers provide ANSI C.12.20compliant billing-grade measurement of energy usage so that you can accurately report on your energy costs.
Automated Zero-Configuration Provisioning
TRUE PLUG-AND-PLAY INSTALL
Save on project deployment costs, eliminate in-the-field configuration issues, and reduce your risk of project delays.
Once physically connected, all Tondo controllers automatically sense the type of lighting they are connected to, and communicate back to your Tondo Smart Lighting Management System to apply the correct lighting profile in less than 10 seconds.
The Tondo Mobile-IQ appfor Android and iOS is also provided for lighting technicians in the field to perform testing and in-field configuration changes if they wish.
If you can save 10 minutes for every installed light during deployment, those costs can add up to huge project savings, and reduce the risks to your project timeline.
Cryptographic Security on Every Device
THE MOST SECURE SMART LIGHTING SOLUTION
Tondo’s team designed every one of their devices with the expectation that bad actors will want to gain access.
Every device contains a dedicated “cryptographic chip”containing the most advanced physical and information-security protection available today.
Our cryptographic chip protects devices throughout the supply chain and over-the-air update process, providing true end-to-end security through to your management console.
Our security architecture goes beyond the 30 year-old software-based certificate security used by other companies, and gives each device a unique, continuously changing secure key protected in a secure hardware vault.
Lighting is Just the Beginning
SENSORS AND MORE
When you install a Tondo Smart Lighting Network, each light becomes a network connection creating a platform for a nearly limitless array of sensors and devices.
Sensors can connect to the Tondo network wirelessly with Bluetooth 5 LE, DALI D4i communications, or with a direct-wired logic signal interface based on the DALI2 or DALI D4i control standards.
Sensors include those that can monitor pedestrian traffic, and alert your team to critical events that require an immediate response.
Control Any Type of Outdoor Lighting
MINIMIZE YOUR COSTS FOR ALL PARKING LIGHTING
Whether you have newer LED or HID lighting, Tondo can control it.
Tondo also supports connection to all global standard lighting connections including NEMA C136.41, and Zhaga Book 18 socket types on your luminaires, and we also offer central cabinet control or in-pole solutions for lighting without on-lamp sockets.
We support 0v-10v, 1v-10v, and DALI2lighting control standards, and we’re always working on support for emerging new standards to give you all available options to maximize your area lighting energy and operating savings.
Secure Cloud-Based Central Management
ENTERPRISE-CLASS NETWORK CONTROL
Tondo’s Cloud-IQcentral management system (CMS) is the most advanced platform of its kind. We can host on our cloud…or yours.
Our standards-based cloud-native design on top of open source software applications and tools provides scalability and security unlike any other solution.
More than lighting, the Tondo Cloud-IQ CMS can support a wide range of sensors and connected devices – and Tondo can take your ideas and use-cases and turn them into reality.
We can integrate our management system with your enterprise asset management, analytics, and other operations management software (OMS) to avoid creating another data silo in your organization.
