What Makes Street Lighting Special?
A Smart City needs an accessible, standards-based network for Smart City applications to connect to and provide information back to the city’s operations teams. This enables the municipalities to provide automated, enhanced services to its citizens.
- Lighting poles are everywhere
- Lighting poles have 24/7 electricity
- Lighting poles are here for a long time
- Lowest activation cost for the Smart City
Smart City visions begin with Tondo Smart Lighting and Smart Networks.
Lighting poles represent a strategic infrastructure for smart city development (and, in particular, for video-surveillance services and autonomous driving) thanks to their capillarity, connectivity and electrification.

The Case for Smart Roadway Lighting
- Outdoor lighting accounts for approximately 30% of a municipality’s energy budget
- Smart lighting can increase energy savings by 75% over standard LED retrofit projects
- Tondo Smart Lighting can reduce lighting electricity consumption as much as 70% over LED retrofit projects
Operations and Management
- The operational costs of street lighting are approximately 20% of the total cost of ownership.
- Tondo Smart Lighting can reduce your operating costs by as much as 15%
- Street lighting represents 6% of our global GHG footprint
- Tondo Smart Lighting can reduce your GHG footprint by as much as 22% in addition to your LED upgrade benefits
Tondo’s Smart Lighting solutions enable 24/7 electrification of the street pole to establish the “pole as an asset” for Smart Cities.

Unlike other solutions on the market, Tondo packs a complete lighting control, sensor and device control, and smart city network into a single compact package.
Street, Road, and Highway Lighting
MONITOR AND MANAGE ANY ROADWAY LIGHTING
Tondo’s networked lighting controllers allow your operations team to monitor the status of every connected street or roadway light and get notified immediately of unusual events.
You can create and update enhanced energy-saving lighting control profiles for any type of roadway or highway area.
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.
Easy Zero-Configuration Deployment
ACTIVATE IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS
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 roadway lighting they are connected to, and communicate back to your Tondo Smart Lighting Management Systemto 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 CITY PLATFORM
Tondo’s team designed every one of their devices with the expectation that bad actors will want to gain access.
Every Tondo controller contains a dedicated ARM Cryptocell “cryptographic chip”containing the most advanced physical and information-security protection of any lighting controller.
The ARM Cryptocell 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-first architecture goes beyond simple AES certificate-based encryption and makes every Tondo device a “root of trust” – a device that can be trusted. Your connected Smart City shouldn’t add more problems to your plate.
Smart Lighting as Infrastructure
SMART CITY SENSOR AND DEVICE CONNECTIVITY
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 direct wired.
Sensors include those that can monitor vehicle, cyclist, or pedestrian traffic, or alert your team to critical events that require an immediate response.
Support for Any Type of Street Lighting
AUTOMATIC LAMP SENSING
Whether you have newer LED, Phosphor-Converted Amber LED, Narrow-Band Amber LED lighting, or older legacy lighting types like Metal Halide, High-Pressure, or Low-Pressure Sodium lighting, Tondo can control it.
Tondo also supports connection to all global standard lighting connections including NEMA 3-pin, 5-pin , 7-pin , and Zhaga Book 18 socket types on your lamp housings, and central cabinet control for lighting without on-lamp sockets.
We support DALIand DALI2 dimming and we’re always working on support for emerging new standards such as ANSI C137.4-2021 to give you the widest range of lighting control to maximize your lighting energy savings.
Secure Cloud-Based Central Management
HIGH-AVAILABILITY NETWORK CONTROL
Tondo’s Cloud-IQcentral management system can control any of your connected lighting, sensors, and connected devices.
Integrate our management system with your enterprise asset management, analytics, and other operations management software (OMS). Tondo provides an open architecture to help you avoid creating silos of information in your municipality.
