Telensa, a connected street lighting and smart city applications provider, announced that it has been selected by the Highways Department of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government (HKSARG) to deploy its PLANet intelligent street lighting system in a pilot programme led by engineering services group South King-Kum Shing JV to replace about 600 streetlights in Yuen Long Town with wirelessly managed LED lights. The Yuen Long community has a population of 148,000 and is located in the New Territories.

Telensa PLANet is an end-to-end smart street lighting system, consisting of wireless nodes connecting individual lights, a dedicated wireless network owned by the city, and a central management application. The system pays for itself in reduced energy and maintenance costs, improves quality of service through automatic fault reporting, and has the capacity to turn streetlight poles into hubs for smart city sensors. With more than one million lights connected, Telensa PLANet is the world’s most popular connected streetlight system.

“We’re delighted to be working with our partners, the Highways Department of the HKSARG and South King-Kum Shing JV to pilot an efficient, resilient and smart street lighting system for Hong Kong, one that will be responsive to citizens’ needs for decades to come,” said Will Gibson, Founder and Chief Commercial Officer at Telensa. “We’re looking forward to working together in future on low-cost smart city applications, enabled by the city’s lighting network.”
