Industry’s first all-inclusive smart lighting solution bundles everything – hardware, software,
data connectivity, support, and monitoring service, with an extended hardware warranty
FREMONT, CA, June 21, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Dhyan, the device management experts, today announced Ohli Lighting Cellular, a turnkey outdoor smart lighting solution bundle that consists of Ohli Node, cellular connectivity, StreetMan® management software and a monitoring service all included for five years. Dhyan is the first in the industry to offer an all-inclusive smart lighting bundle for a low one-time payment. The Ohli Lighting Cellular solution is especially attractive to cities for implementing smart street lights, and to lighting contractors working with auto dealerships, large outdoor campuses, and parking lots.
“Although smart outdoor light controllers deliver much better ROI than photo controllers, a major barrier to their uptake is the perception of expense and complexity,” said Prakash Ramadass, Dhyan’s VP of Smart Cities. “That can be true where the lights have to connect to the network via a gateway device, as gateway installation and maintenance can be complicated,” Ramadass continued. “But because Ohli Node uses the cellular network (or NB-IoT), it doesn’t need a gateway at all. We have removed all the complexity of installing and maintaining a smart lighting solution. Just plug the Ohli Node into the NEMA socket on the luminaire and the rest of the installation process is completely automated. Ohli Nodes can even be run alongside any existing lighting vendor network.”
Ohli Node is designed for long-term, outdoor use, and uses a built-in, industrially rated, next-generation, remotely programmable eSIM card which works with multiple cellular providers and multiple networks out-of-the-box in 170 countries. Through its partner, Dhyan has obtained a low, fixed rate with the cellular providers. Ohli Node also comes in a LoRaWAN version for municipalities that want to add smart street lighting to an existing LoRaWAN network they may already be running for water or gas metering.
For monitoring and management of Ohli Node, the Ohli Lighting solution comes with a five year license for cloud-based StreetMan® management software as well as support and maintenance. StreetMan® can manage Ohli Nodes and controllers from other manufacturers running different network communication protocols, at the same time, so users are never locked in, or out.
The technology is all built-in, pre-packaged, and bundled with the software and monitoring service needed to make it work out of the box, and Ohli Node sells for a fixed, one-time price with no extra roaming or other add-on charges. Cities and contractors now know exactly how much they are paying for five years of service. Optional extras include 5 more years of warranty, making a total of 10 years, a high voltage controller, and an additional 5-year cellular data plan for a total of 10 years. The Ohli Lighting solution has been well received by the market and Dhyan is already doing pilot installations with several municipalities and Dhyan lighting contractor partners.
The Dhyan family of central management software for the IoT market consists of StreetMan® for managing smart streetlights, LightMan for managing smart area lights such as in campuses, parking lots, buildings, and warehouses, and CitiMan for managing smart city IoT assets.
