Mayflower Smart Control has worked with SSE Airtricity Utility Solutions to install Smart City sensors around the Lusk Sports Complex
In early 2019, SSE Airtricity Solutions (SSE AUS) installed a trial Mayflower Central Management System (CMS) at Lusk Sports Complex on behalf of Fingal County Council.
Comprised of 38 Nodes and 1 Sub Master, the central management system has been in control of the lighting outputs for the Philips Lumistreet luminaires situated across the sports complex. By installing Mayflower CMS, the sports complex now has the capability to automate switching and dimming regimes and subsequently improve energy efficiency and reliability of the floodlights.
Following the successful CMS trial, Fingal County Council has worked with Mayflower Smart Control to investigate how smart sensors and applications can assist in the development of a smart environment.
In September 2019, Mayflower proposed a solution that included trials of Libelium air quality sensors, noise sensors and weather stations. The smart sensors would connect to the existing Mayflower Lighting Network across the area, minimising both financial cost and installation time. Using a Zigbee communication protocol generated by the Mayflower Lighting Network, the sensors will feed back data into Mayflower Smart Cities and Places.
Mayflower Smart Cities and Places is SSE Enterprise’s latest IoT deployment, created as an extension of the Mayflower product suite. Designed with ultra-connectivity in mind, Mayflower Smart Cities and Places has the ability to integrate both smart sensors and smart applications through networks such as Zigbee, LoRaWAN, NB-IoT, WiFi and cellular.
Installation of the smart sensors was completed in October 2019. Fingal County Council now have the ability to view, analyse and export data such as rainfall, wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, CO, CO2 and SO2 in Mayflower Smart Cities and Places. Following detailed analysis, the data provided is able to assist Fingal County Council in development of pollution and environmental action plans for the local area.
A spokesperson for Fingal County Council, commented: “It has been great to witness Mayflower Smart Cities and Places in action, and understand more about how the technology works. Fingal County Council are committed to reducing pollution levels across the county and look forward to discussing how SSE’s latest smart solutions can help us to achieve this.”
Mayflower Smart Cities and Places is now available for commercial use, and any interested parties are encouraged to contact SmartCities@sse.com for more information.
