The Tondo Advantage
ADVANCED SMART LIGHTING CONTROL
Smart streetlights operate more efficiently allowing customers to optimize their energy use, lower costs, reduce carbon emissions and improve the quality of the environment.
Smart Lighting can reduce energy consumption beyond simple LED lamp upgrades, providing an additional 30% in electricity and GHG savings.
Advanced smart lighting controls reduce light pollution that not only reduce energy use, but also bring health benefits to humans and wildlife.
The added savings from Tondo’s Smart Lighting solutions provide a rapid return on investment and a platform for Smart City growth.
LIGHTING AS INFRASTRUCTURE
Lighting poles represent a strategic infrastructure for smart city development. Lighting poles will become hosting infrastructure for several connected devices (e.g., sensors, video cameras, EV chargers) (Arthur D. Little S.A., 2019), providing an unprecedented opportunity to drive value for all Smart City stakeholders.
Smart Lighting raises the quality of life by improving livability, increasing safety, reducing crime, and encouraging social activity McKinsey Global Institute, 2018).. Smart City applications can improve human quality of life indicators by 10% – 30% (
A Tondo Smart Lighting solution turns your outdoor lighting into a value-creating asset for your Smart City and Smart Enterprise.

We are a proud Amazon Web Services partner, providing our cloud-based management system on the most reliable platform available.
A Solution That Works for You
STREETS, ROADWAYS, AND HIGHWAYS
Roadway and highway lighting, including traffic signal lighting, represents 36% of all outdoor lighting in the U.S.
LED lamp retrofit projects are an easy choice, because they deliver up to 40% in energy savings and GHG footprint reductions. A Tondo Smart Lighting solution can add a further 30% in lighting electricity savings and your lighting’s GHG footprint.
A Tondo Smart Lighting solution also provides you with the IoT communications and control infrastructure for Smart City and Smart Enterprise applications – paid for with the energy and GHG benefits from your Smart Lighting project.
Parking lot lighting represents the 2nd largest category of outdoor lighting. Five percent of the entire United States is covered by parking lots, with as many as 630m indoor and outdoor parking lot spaces with dedicated lighting estimated in the U.S.
Tondo’s Smart Lighting not only reduces the operating and maintenance costs of lighting, but enables fine control and can be used with sensors for vehicle and pedestrian traffic to craft safer on-demand lighting environments for parking lot users.
COMMERCIAL OUTDOOR LIGHTING
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, commercial outdoor area lighting represents 64% of all outdoor lighting in the United States, and 6% of global energy consumption . Over half our carbon footprint comes from electricity and 17% from outdoor lighting.
Lighting energy costs represent approximately 10% of the total operating budget of a commercial building and 31% of the total energy budget.
This means a Tondo Smart Lighting solution can reduce your energy and other operational expenses by as much as 30% and add up to 4% to the net operating income for your organization.
RAILWAY AND PUBLIC TRANSIT LIGHTING
Lighting for airports, railways, and rapid transit systems represent the fourth largest source of outdoor lighting.
Tondo’s Smart Lighting solutions can increase the ROI on LED retrofit projects by 30%, and reduce your lighting’s GHG footprint by the same.
Tondo’s Smart Lighting solutions provide an enterprise-wide network infrastructure for your Smart Enterprise applications.
