This year’s Christmas light switch on in Nottingham was a smooth and coordinated occasion thanks to Mayflower’s Central Management System (CMS) Smart City technology.
The City, famous for spectacular displays of festive lights, previously controlled their illuminations individually with each set of lights turned on separately. Thanks to Mayflower the Council were able to switch on all the decorations simultaneously with a single press of a button, setting the scene for this year’s festive season.
“To enable all the Christmas lights to be switched on at the same time made such a difference to the event and ensured that this year was extra special”. Celia Knight, Neighborhood Development Officer, Bulwell Forest, Nottingham City Council.
Shawn Blunt, Technical Sales and Support Engineer for Mayflower responded by saying “Its great to have positive feedback on this project, and to know that all the hard work that had been put into making this happen has paid off.
The team at Nottingham are planning on having more features connected across the City and outlying areas for next Christmas, making Nottingham an even Smarter City”.
In 2010, SSE Enterprise Contracting worked with Nottingham City Council to replace over 38,000 street lights throughout the City with new energy efficient lamps, significantly reducing the City’s energy spend on street lighting.
As part of the project, Nottingham City Council installed Mayflower’s CMS, which has enabled the Council to actively control each individual street light, giving them the ability to switch, monitor and dim the lighting across the City. The results have further reduced maintenance costs whilst increasing controllability.
