Smart City Control can be used to manage your public assets including:
Active and Passive Parks
Urban Public Places
Buildings & Facilities
How smart do you want your city to be?
You can choose what level of control you have over your public assets.
The starting point in the road for to become a SmartCity is to identify your assets. Assets that can be monitored or controlled. This should include individual components identification, pricing, where to get replacement parts and relevant drawings
Monitoring your assets can have a big impact on the efficiency of your operation and as such can reduce council expenditure while at the same time allow for quicker responses to faults. Monitoring will mainly consist of data collection via the mobile phone network.
Many, but not all, your monitored assets can have a control function attached to it. This will allow automatic or remote manual adjustments of setpoints such as pressure control on irrigation systems or dimming control on lighting systems. Even disconnection of power to vandalised assets.
Providing access to council facilities can be an administrative burden. A user-pay approach to things like floodlighting or local halls can increase efficiency while fuel supply access can provide detailed information as to where fuel is being used

How we'll work to complete your project
Understanding the customer’s needs is the beginning of all projects.
A site visit forms part of the process to provide a control system proposal.
During this visit a budget estimate is discussed so as to provide a suitable solution..
A detailed proposal is provided including one or more options.
The control system is designed. Control panels are manufactured and supplied.
Site installation using local contractors where possible to maintain local support.
System commissioning and training using our experienced engineers.
Equipment support and software updates for the life of the equipment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will this system require interaction with our IT staff to set up firewalls and the like
The system is completely cloud based and as such does not rely on involvement of your local IT infrastructure.
Can this system talk to other equipment and if so what communication protocol is used
Yes, the system uses an open architecture and can communicate with other equipment on the widely used Modbus protocol in either TCP (ethernet) or RTU (RS485) modes.
Can the irrigation system get weather data from other sources
The control system has the ability to connect with one or more of its own weather stations but in addition can communicate with other data bases as long as permission is provided from the source.
Can I have multiple pumps connected to the system and how will this work
Yes you can. Ideally you select at least one of the pumps to connect to a variable speed drive (VSD) with the subsequent pump(s) to follow on when the first pump cannot maintain sufficient pressure in the line. All the control algorithms are as standard included with the controller.
Can I control the floodlight with my mobile phone
Yes you can. Individual pole control as well as light intensity. If you want to control your expenses you can also select the swipe card access function.
I already have an asset management system. What will your system add to that?
The Smartcity asset managment package focuses more on actual management rather than just the numbers. That is why with each item, apart from the price there is also information about where to buy a replacement part and how this part is connected to the control system
Can the same access card be used for multiple applications such as flood light control, venue access and standpipe access.
Yes it can, and access to each individual venue can be enabled or disabled for each card
Apart from alarms will the system also provide event data
Yes, detailed information is provided and time stamped for any function that the system has been programmed for.
I have multiple relatively small parks to control, can I combine these?
Yes you can as long as the water supply is common to all parks. Individual parks can be linked vie wireless routers, RS485 cabling or via radio signals.
