    for connected street lighting

    What is CityTouch?

    CityTouch is a secure, connected lighting management platform that is helping cities become more livable, efficient and sustainable.


    CityTouch provides full visibility and control of your city’s street lighting from a centralized dashboard, allowing you to securely monitor light points, set schedules, and adjust light levels on demand. Data encryption and two-factor authentication ensure the software meets the most stringent security standards.


    Easy to use web applications provide a complete view of your connected street lights, enabling you to manage workflows and deploy maintenance crews only when and where needed. System data gives you near real-time insights into energy use and cost, helping you plan and schedule more efficiently.


    Your existing luminaires can be made CityTouch ready with a connector node, or you can choose to beautify your city with our new CityTouch luminaire.  CityTouch gives you complete flexibility with open standards and easy integration with other intelligent platforms and IoT devices, ensuring you keep pace with smart city trends – now and in the future.


    A flexible and sustainable solution for your city.


    CityTouch allows cities to adapt public lighting to all kinds of changing conditions and situations, while realizing energy and cost savings. And by digitizing your data you have the freedom to use it in many different ways.


    CityTouch lighting management software combined with LED luminaires can reduce energy use by more than 70% as well as significantly lowering CO2 emissions. It’s an opportunity to make your city more attractive, dynamic and environmentally responsible, along with saving money. 


    CityTouch is lean, efficient and helps you to take control of your public lighting infrastructure – a very visible indication to the people that the city government is making good decisions and using their money wisely.
