Mountain View Park

  • El Monte, CA
  • Lot Size: 10.1 acres
  • Completion Date: October 2018
  • Outdoor LED Lighting upgrades
    and Integrated Smart Wireless
    Lighting Control System

The City of El Monte, located in the San Gabriel Valley, California is looking to brighten up local parks with LED lighting upgrades and plans to be a smart city with wireless controls and monitoring. Mountain View Park was the first pilot project from the City of El Monte. SolarMax LED designed and implemented a smart wireless lighting control and monitoring system for the Mountain View Park. The LED fixtures, with integrated wireless nodes, can be remotely controlled and monitored through a web based server on their workstations’ web page. Furthermore, each LED luminaire, integrated with smart wireless nodes, also has a PIR motion dimming sensor, which automatically dims the light to 50% after 20 minutes of non-occupancy detection.

SolarMax LED provides unique and innovative smart control solutions to outdoor public area lighting, such as parks and recreation areas, roadways, and parking lots, enabling the city to centrally control and monitor lights in real-time and minimize the personnel to maintain the lights. Lights can be programmed individually or by group (zone), to fulfill illumination needs in different areas. The system constantly scans each luminaire for its performance status. When a fault/failure is detected, the system automatically generates an email notification to the maintenance technician. The technician can then check and repair the light with a minimum amount of light down time. The LED lighting upgrade provides a significant energy savings along with the PIR motion dimming sensor which further cuts down the power consumption when the area is unoccupied. The smart wireless lighting control system provides real-time lighting performance status and enables the city to maintain the lights with minimum staff, labor, and cost.
