Product information

General information Specifications Wireless connectivity

Jooby Luminaire Controller Embedded is an automatic luminaire control device. The controller enables automatic brightness adjustment based on schedule and astronomic calendar or in response to a motion sensor’s signal. Luminaire Controller Embedded can send information about the luminaire’s operation to Jooby cloud, where the lighting network operator can monitor and adjust their operation.

General information

  • Compatible with luminaires of any vendor or model having a dimmable driver and enough real estate inside.
  • Installation inside the lighting poles with integrated lighting modules, park luminaires, and other lighting equipment is possible.
  • Luminaire brightness control via 0–10 V, 1–10 V, PWM or DALI interface.
  • Supports communication over LoRaWAN® networks.
  • Autonomously adjusts light intensity throughout the year based on the astronomical calendar.
  • Dynamic lighting: automatically adjusts light intensity upon the signal from a built-in or external motion sensor.
  • Gathers and transmits luminaire operation data. The information is sent for processing and visualization to Jooby CMS, which notifies the operator should the need arise.

Luminaire brightness control

Jooby Luminaire Controller Embedded adjusts the brightness of Avenue luminaires from 10–100% in increments of 1%.

Automatic dimming interface detection.

Data collection and luminaire monitoring

The controller collects information about the luminaire’s operation, providing the following data to the operator:

  • Voltage
  • Power supply current
  • Current power consumption
  • Power factor
  • Total power consumed
  • Total uptime
  • Controller board temperature
  • Ambient light level

Astro power-on, power-off, dimming

Luminaire Controller Embedded autonomously adjusts luminaire brightness throughout the year based on the astronomical calendar. To this end, the device has the following functionality:

  • A real-time clock with time data retention in the unpowered state
  • Geolocalisation-based automatic dusk and dawn time calculation for every day of the year
  • Annual operation programme: the algorithm can function even when disconnected from a LoRaWAN® network
  • TALQ-compatibility
  • Four daily operation programmes selected depending on the predefined rules, date, weekday, workdays, and weekends
  • Power-on and power-off at a pre-set time as well as based on the astronomical calendar and ambient light sensor
  • Up to 8 brightness adjustment points in the daily programme.

LoRa wireless technology, LoRaWAN® network technology

Jooby Luminaire Controller Embedded supports communication over LoRaWAN® wireless networks, which have the following benefits:

  • Licence-free frequency bands
  • Long range
  • Secure connection with two levels of encryption
  • Low power consumption

ShortLink technology

The device supports ShortLink technology to connect luminaires to one another. ShortLink enables dynamic lighting—when a motion sensor is triggered on one luminaire, the brightness on the nearby ones is raised, too. The system thus creates a ‘light wave’ in front of the moving pedestrian or car. ShortLink technology reduces the devices’ response delay to 0.01 s.

Technical support

Avenue Smart Cover

To transform a regular Avenue luminaire into a smart one, an Avenue Smart Cover controller needs to be installed. This enables you to connect your luminaires to Jooby CMS for management and monitoring.

Case studies

Jooby Avenue’s smart luminaires light streets, parks, roads, bridges, and thermal power plants in Ukraine, Switzerland, and Denmark. Radio modules for utility meters and the Jooby RDC Dashboard solution enable automation of water, gas, heat, and electricity consumption tracking with minimal infrastructure investments.
