Improve Station Safety and Security
Smart lighting and the appropriate selection of lighting intensity, color temperature, and coverage can make a significant difference in whether passengers feel welcome, safe, and secure, and deter crime.
With Tondo’s Smart Lighting solutions, you can easily tailor lighting profiles based on the presence of passengers, the availability of natural light, the surfaces and surrounding areas being lit. You can quickly adapt to peak passenger demand, special events, or create responsive lighting that adapts to the presence or absence of people.
Smart lighting enables you to serve the needs of your passengers while reducing unnecessary light levels when they are not required. Further, Adaptive smart lighting can reduce your energy and operating costs by as much as 75% over a simple LED lamp retrofit.
Lighting in stations is found in several studies to be important for the perception of and is often found to be one of the most essential characteristics affecting safety in the stations. This also concerns the area around the station such as car parks. [Studies have] found that especially young women felt unsafe in environments with poor lighting.

Advanced Lighting Control
A SECURE PLATFORM FOR YOUR CONNECTED ASSETS
Tondo’s networked lighting controllers allow your operations team to monitor the status of every connected parking lot or area light, and get notified immediately of unusual events.
You can create and update enhanced energy-saving lighting control profiles for any application.
You can capture data and status on connected sensors, and roll up your data to other operations management and business analytics tools.
Our lighting controllers provide ANSI C.12.20compliant billing-grade measurement of energy usage so that you can accurately report on your lighting energy costs.
TRUE PLUG-AND-PLAY INSTALL
Save on project deployment costs, eliminate in-the-field configuration issues, and reduce your risk of project delays.
Once physically connected, all Tondo controllers automatically sense the type of roadway lighting they are connected to, and communicate back to the Tondo Cloud-IQ Smart Lighting Management Systemto apply the correct lighting profile in less than 10 seconds.
The Tondo Mobile-IQ appfor Android and iOS is also provided for lighting technicians in the field to perform testing and in-field configuration changes if they wish.
If you can save 10 minutes for every installed light during deployment, those costs can add up to huge project savings, and reduce the risks to your project timeline.
Cryptographic Security for Every Device
THE MOST SECURE SMART LIGHTING SOLUTION
Tondo’s team designed every one of their devices with the expectation that bad actors will want to gain access.
Every Tondo controller contains a dedicated “cryptographic chip”containing the most advanced physical and information-security protection of any lighting controller.
Our cryptographic chip protects devices throughout the supply chain and over-the-air update process, providing true end-to-end security through to your management console.
Our security-first architecture goes beyond simple AES certificate-based encryption and makes every Tondo device a “root of trust” – a device that can be trusted. Your connected Smart Lighting shouldn’t add more problems to your plate.
Smart Lighting as Infrastructure for Smart Cities
SENSOR AND DEVICE CONNECTIVITY
When you install a Tondo Smart Lighting Network, each light becomes a network connection creating a platform for a nearly limitless array of sensors and devices.
Sensors can connect to the Tondo network wirelessly with Bluetooth 5 LE, DALI D4i communications, or direct wired.
Sensors include those that can monitor pedestrian traffic, or alert your team to critical events that require an immediate response.
Support for Any Lighting Type
MINIMIZE YOUR COSTS FOR ALL BOARDING AREA LIGHTING
Whether you have newer LED, Phosphor-Converted Amber LED, Narrow-Band Amber LED lighting, or older legacy lighting types like Metal Halide, High-Pressure, or Low-Pressure Sodium lighting, Tondo can control it.
Tondo also supports connection to all global standard lighting connections including NEMA 3-pin, 5-pin , 7-pin , and Zhaga Book 18 socket types on your lamp housings, and central cabinet control for lighting without on-lamp sockets.
We support DALIand DALI2 dimming and we’re always working on support for emerging new standards such as ANSI C137.4-2021 to give you the widest range of lighting control to maximize your lighting energy savings.
