Fonroche Connect : Remote monitoring of off-grid streetlights


10 reasons why you should choose solar lighting, Corporate news / Friday, June 12th, 2020

Built-in connectivity

Fonroche Lighting’s R&D teams have developed a remote connectivity tool specially tailored to our solar streetlights called Fonroche Connect. This app uses LoRaTM low-data-rate wireless technology for remote, real-time management and monitoring of streetlights. It lets you monitor and troubleshoot your network of individually geolocated streetlights to ensure perfectly controlled, uninterrupted lighting throughout the year.

Remote monitoring of off-grid streetlights

The Fonroche Connect web-based app on desktop, tablet or smartphone gives access to all physical data from each off-grid solar streetlight:

  • Geographic location
  • Level of light output
  • Level of available power in the Power365 battery
  • Operational status

This information gives you a quick status check of entire sets of solar streetlights, so you can respond to any anomalies. This kind of remote diagnostic also helps you plan preventive actions, such as pruning back trees overhanging PV panels or replacing product components.

Long-range management of solar streetlights

As well as keeping you informed of the physical status of your off-grid streetlights, the Fonroche Connect app lets you manage them over long ranges. Individual streetlights or entire networks can be switched on and off as needed. Lighting settings can also be adjusted to reduce or increase the level of illumination, for example.

Smarter public lighting

Eco-friendly streetlights with quick and easy connectivity

The global leader in solar public lighting offers solutions that aren’t just environmentally friendly — they’re also smarter. Urban lighting accounts for a significant proportion of spending and requires time-consuming management by local authorities, public-sector organisations and private companies alike. For this reason, Fonroche Lighting has developed a sustainable, easy-to-use system that requires no maintenance for the first 10 years.

The Fonroche Connect app also tells you how much CO2 you’ve saved by switching to solar technology. This is especially important in view of the goals we need to reach as we build a more eco-responsible future.

Streetlight 2.0 for the smart cities of the future

The world’s cities are constantly looking for smarter urban innovations to improve quality of life, safety and security. Fonroche off-grid lighting solutions combine technology and ecology to meet these criteria. Smartlighting is progressively taking over from obsolete lighting systems that are power hungry and extremely expensive to operate.
