Globally Transforming Technology – Light Sensory Networks
The LSN is a new, innovative networking platform that capitalizes on the widespread move toward LED lighting for outdoor uses. The outdoor LED luminaires, positioned at regular intervals high above the built environment, are powerful semiconductor devices that can sense information about the ambient environment—CO2 and other gas concentrations, the movement of goods and objects, and other distributed events—and backhaul that information through the Sensity NetSense LSN. Even better, the LSN does so by using both the power supply and the installation labor paid for by the economics of the LED lighting upgrade. By adding inexpensive computer and network modules to LED light fixtures, lighting owners can simultaneously reap the benefits of energy-efficient LED lighting while building out a new, global LSN.
Sensity has installed and operates thousands of LSN network nodes for global organizations that include commercial class A office and mall/retail real estate markets, leading metropolitan regions and cities, large airport facilities and ports, and large sporting venues.
