Smart lighting solution reduces energy consumption in parking facility by up to 92%

The Finalebanen parking facility in Trondheim is a good example of how a lighting control system can provide both safe navigation and a significant reduction in energy consumption.

Recently, Trondheim Parking, the public parking company in Trondheim, upgraded two of its facilities with new i40 LED luminaires and a wireless lighting control system from Glamox. In Finalebanen, the largest of the parking facilities, energy consumption has been reduced by up to 92%. At the same time, the new solution ensures safe passage for both cars and pedestrians.

Smart follow-me function

Key Account Manager at Glamox, Glen Møller explains: “The Glamox wireless system uses a ‘follow me’ function which means that when a sensor in a luminaire detects a moving car or pedestrian, it transmits the signal to the next luminaire in the network. Each of the luminaires picking up the signal communicates with the surrounding luminaires telling them to increase the light from 10 to 90%. This means that the car or person moving around the car park always has the way ahead
illuminated. The facility always has a basic lighting of 10% to provide depth orientation and maintain the feeling of security.”



Cloud-based reporting

Furthermore, Glamox Wireless allows Trondheim Parking full control of the lighting installation from their offices in the city centre through Glamox’s cloud-based solution. The solution includes reports on energy consumption and maintenance status that let the parking company know if a luminaire or a driver is broken.
