The Lux Awards are designed to celebrate and reward both creativity and sustainability, recognizing clients and end users that have employed lighting in exceptional ways to improve their lit environment, reduce energy, and achieve business objectives. From over 200 nominations, the judges drew up the initial shortlists, tested products and visited projects across the length and breadth of the UK to see the solutions in action for themselves.
“Receiving the Lux Award for the NearSky smart city platform reflects our commitment to continuous innovation in the smart lighting and smart city space,” said Anil Agrawal, CEO at CIMCON. “Offering customers technology that simplifies the building of smart cities and delivers significant improvements in city services is our mission and this award demonstrates that we are leading the industry in meeting those needs.”
The Lux Award judges detailed the industry-leading innovation from the CIMCON’s NearSky smart city platform. They stated, “NearSky is a sensor integration platform that turns street lights into ‘smart city’ devices. The NearSky 360 edge processor connects to any ANSI C136.41 socket and is operationally compatible with third-party photocells and street light controllers. It uses the RF lighting control network provided by CIMCON’s intelligent street light controllers to transmit sensor data from the street light to the NearSky StreetVibe cloud platform. It also expands the number of devices which can be powered and metered from one unit and metered from one unit and allows two security cameras to be mounted on each street light to cover both directions of a street.”
