The lighting system
In 2015, we launched our server and IoT based solution in Hammerfest. X5 Elektro, the contractor in the project, installed our gateway in the area. The gateway serves as a communication node between the control nodes and our server service in the cloud. 72 radio-based controllers were installed in the light poles to control the LED light sources with white and yellow lights.
In 2017 the system was expanded with several light poles and luminaires. Today, 82 control nodes are installed in 41 light poles.
In addition to the white and yellow light, blue lights are installed at the top of the poles to secure safety for aircraft and hellicopter traffic. The blue lights is connected to the rest of the street lighting in Hammerfest and lights up simultaneously with all other lighting.
