gridComm makes smart cities smarter with their networked street lights and IoT-connected sensors that instantly measure weather, pollution, traffic, and more. With unprecedented control, a smart city network enables hundreds of thousands of sensors to communicate and deliver detailed data in real-time. With this data, gridComm's street light control software saves millions of dollars in electricity and maintenance costs. Lighting alone is responsible for six percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, but intelligent lighting operations can shrink a city's annual electricity consumption by as much as 40 percent, which is equivalent to halving the heat and electricity emissions in the EU. gridComm's solution piggy-backs on a city's existing power lines with its unique but extremely reliable hybrid PLC-Wireless technology, and it allows integration of partners' technology to provide cost-effective solutions for smart city infrastructure. There are 50 billion IoT devices predicted by 2020, and gridComm's solution is ready to connect with all of them to form a holistic, future-proof foundation for the smart cities of the world.
