  • 6 UNILIGHT outdoor lighting control cabinets were installed
  • The project was implemented by the start of EXPO 2017 and the system was demonstrated to the President of Kazakhstan


  • Power consumption due to lighting upgrade reduced by 35%, average illuminance improvement by 30-40%
  • Further lighting control power savings – 25% (due to dimming)
  • Each light and its status is automatically shown on the map because of the GPS/GLONASS module
  • Maintenance costs reduction up to 50% due to power lines and each light condition monitoring
  • Integrating with cameras, meteorological and ecological sensors, road condition sensors (project in progress as a part of UNILIGHT system)

 UNILIGHT advantages

As Nur-Sultan positions itself as a modern city, the system’s further scalability was an important factor for the city’s administration. Our solution fit this task in the best way possible: we installed the outdoor lighting control automated system, and now it is possible to add more Smart City services to it and manage the services from the same control center.
