Omniflow installed six Smart Lighting units in the new parking area adjacent to the Algés market, in Portugal, promoting increased public safety, and lighting adaptability with improved energy efficiency.
Major Benefits and Services of Omniflow delivered at this installation are:
Sustainable Lighting for Reduced Consumption and Carbon Footprint: Omniflow LED lighting solutions with built-in renewables are highly energy-efficient, reducing electricity consumption by more than 90% compared with traditional lighting.
Enhanced Safety Through Intelligent Lighting: Adaptive lighting systems enhance safety and reduce energy waste by adjusting brightness as needed.
Smart Lamp Posts as an IoT platform: Our solutions are prepared to act as a backbone for multiple IoT applications.
Swift Execution: Partnering with Omniflow ensures timely project completion, critical for Smart Cities.
1. Sustainable Lighting for Reduced Consumption and Carbon Footprint
The primary objective of this installation was to provide sustainable lighting solutions that could reduce energy consumption and lower the carbon footprint in the area.
Omniflow Smart Lamp Posts are powered by wind and solar and equipped with highly energy-efficiency LEDs for low grid energy consumption and CO2 emissions reduction, aligning perfectly with the goals of Smart Cities striving for environmental conservation.
2. Enhanced Safety Through Smart Lighting
Beyond sustainability, our Smart Lighting Solution plays a key role in enhancing safety for users of the parking area.
Smart Cities recognize that a well-lit environment is essential for public safety, and Omniflows' smart lighting systems quickly adapt to changing conditions.
They can adjust brightness levels based on the presence of pedestrians and vehicles, ensuring that the area is well-lit when needed while conserving energy during quieter times.
Dynamic lighting promotes safety while contributing to reduced energy waste, making it an ideal choice for modern urban environments.
Our units are connected to cloud-based IoT software developed by Omniflow for monitoring and control. The collected data can be transformed into valuable information to make decisions or program alarms. To find out more about this service, contact us.
3. Smart Lamp Posts as an IoT platform
Our Omniflow solution is an integrated Smart Lamp post able to transform a regular street light into a sustainable smart infrastructure capable of housing multiple added value services like 5G/LTE Small Cell, public wifi, security cameras, EV charging, IoT sensors/gateways and even integrated audio for public communication. Our solution has the added benefit of being a resilient solution that can still provide lighting, surveillance, and other functionality during grid outages through integrated battery storage.
4. Swift Execution
One of the most significant challenges of this project was its rapid execution. The entire process had to be completed swiftly to cater to citizens' parking needs and accommodate large-scale events in the vicinity.
Omniflow, as a trusted partner, ensured a seamless and efficient installation process, delivering on time and meeting the immediate needs identified in the project briefing.

As cities worldwide strive to create greener, safer, and more efficient urban environments, solutions like Omniflow lighting systems are lighting the way toward a brighter and more sustainable future.
"(…) The Smart Cities Marketplace was created by merging two former platforms, the “Marketplace of the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC Marketplace)” and the “Smart Cities Information System (SCIS)”.
It is a major market-changing undertaking that aims to bring cities, industries, SMEs, investors, banks, researchers, and many other smart city actors together.
Their common aims are to improve citizens’ quality of life, increase the competitiveness of European cities and industry as well as to reach European energy and climate targets." - read more
