THE NEXT GENERATION OF CITY MANAGEMENT
OWLET Owlet is the range of smart control solutions offered
by the Schréder Group. Owlet helps cities worldwide
to reduce their energy bills by up to 85%, to manage
expenses more efficiently, to improve maintenance and
asset management and to provide an increased safety
with enhanced well-being for their citizens.
IOT The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical
objects, devices, vehicles, buildings and other items
embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and
network connectivity, which enables these objects to
collect and exchange data.
The IoT allows objects to be sensed and controlled
remotely across network infrastructure, creating
opportunities for improved efficiency, accuracy and
economic benefit. Each thing is uniquely identifiable
through its embedded computing system but is able to
interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure.
The IoT is directly related to applications such as smart
grids, intelligent transportation and smart cities.
OWLET IOT - THE NEXT GENERATION OF CITY MANAGEMENT The Owlet IoT City Management System, which is based
on Open Standards, can interact with larger smart city
platforms. In fact, Owlet IoT is not only a high performing
remote lighting management system, it can also
exchange data or interoperate with neighbouring systems
such as traffic management sensors, environmental
monitoring systems or security devices.
One of the fundamentals of IoT (Internet of Things)
is that the devices intended to be connected to a
larger network communication platform have to be
`addressable in a similar way. The structure of the
address which is attributed to this latest generation of
luminaire controllers managed by Owlet IoT is called
IPv6. This method of addressing devices can generate
an almost unlimited number of unique combinations to
connect non-traditional components to the Internet or
It s important to understand that Owlet IoT is not a
stand-alone `silo type system, but future oriented and
open to 3rd party integration.
EASY SET-UP This next generation of the Owlet City Management
System shows major progress in the set-up and
commissioning process of the system. Thanks to the
combination of an built-in GPS antenna and an intelligent
auto-commissioning process, it is a real Plug and Play
solution which does not require any intervention from the
installer or contractor, nor any segment controllers.
The luminaire controllers mounted on a universal
7 pin NEMA socket carry all the hard and software
for an independent set-up. There is no need for the
commissioning engineer to manually record the position
of each luminaire.
SMART HYBRID ARCHITECTURE The heart of the system is the full hybrid concept which
provides the best of both worlds. It consists of a strong
local mesh network between the luminaires and the
sensors and a robust backhaul communication with the
system servers. The RF communication network between
the local `actors enables an instantaneous reaction from
event triggers like movement or presence detection.
This is a key element in creating a real adaptive lighting
The new Graphical User Interface provides complete
visibility and dynamic access to the Owlet IoT system.
