Smart Lighting for Public Transportation and Railways
Tondo’s Smart Lighting can lower your lighting electricity consumption and GHG footprint by up to 70%, and lower your lighting maintenance costs by over 50% – even after your LED retrofit projects. Tondo can help you deliver standards-based lighting compliance for maximum passenger safety and security.
Improve Station Safety and Security
Smart lighting and the appropriate selection of lighting intensity, color temperature, and coverage can make a significant difference in whether passengers feel welcome, safe, and secure, and deter crime.
But even great lighting design needs great lighting controls to implement. Ridership isn’t static, and traffic changes over time, requiring lighting controls that can adapt quickly and easily.
Smart lighting enables you to serve the needs of your passengers while ensuring you remain standards- and best-practices compliant.
Lighting in stations is found in several studies to be important for the perception of and is often found to be one of the most essential characteristics affecting safety in the stations. This also concerns the area around the station such as car parks. [Studies have] found that especially young women felt unsafe in environments with poor lighting.

Advanced Lighting Control
A SECURE PLATFORM FOR YOUR CONNECTED ASSETS
Tondo’s Smart Lighting allows your operations team to monitor the status of every connected parking lot or area light serving your customers, and get notified immediately of unusual events that require a response.
Tondo’s Smart Lighting also provides you with an enterprise-wide Smart Network designed to support an array of sensors and other connected devices at over 80% lower cost than sensors with individual cellular connectivity.
Our lighting controllers provide billing-grade measurement of energy usage so that you can accurately report on your lighting energy costs and support time-of-use energy billing scenarios.
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 roadway lighting they are connected to, and communicate back to the Tondo Cloud-IQ 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 for 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.
Smart Lighting as Infrastructure for Smart Cities
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 pedestrian traffic, or alert your team to critical events that require an immediate response.
Support for Any Lighting Type
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, platform, and lot lighting operational 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.
