Designed for local roads, this sustainable solution is ideal for increasing safety on poorly lit streets and intersections

Safety for motorists and pedestrians is paramount on low lit residential and rural streets. If we illuminate these areas, it helps direct attention to roundabouts, intersections and adjoining pathways. 

Solar SMART street lights are the perfect solution perfect solution for these applications as there is no underground cabling required which would pose a significant risk to existing underground infrastructure. 

Optional EDGE wireless web-based controls

Remotely monitor and configure your lighting control, manage battery consumption and detect failure warnings from anywhere in the world. Other features include an energy saving working mode function switch and real time GPS maps to name a few. 

Solar Shared Pathway Light New Zealand

Housing New Zealand – Solar Shared Pathway Lighting

  • Project: Communal Accessway Lighting
  • Location: Auckland

Housing New Zealand’s challenge is to provide housing for the nation’s most vulnerable people in a way that’s safe, healthy, sustainable, and cost-effective. The Leadsun solar street light is helping to meet those needs.

This HNZ development on Auckland’s North Shore is one of many new communities using solar shared pathway lighting.

In this development, the shared accessway serves as vehicle access to multiple homes and is also used by pedestrians, including visitors to the community and small children at play. Safety and security are paramount.

As well as being off-grid, the solar street light conserves its own power by dimming down to 30% when no one is around. This still provides enough background light to maintain a sense of security. The low light on the accessways also helps to maintain a sense of community within the development, rather than isolating the homes in the darkness.

When significant movement is detected – a vehicle or a pedestrian – the unit switches to 100 percent output, giving enough light to identify hazards on the accessway and plenty of solar shared pathway lighting to deter unwanted activity. Because the unit dims quickly when people leave the area, the accessway is not lit all night with an unnecessary level of light.

By choosing a solar solution on this site HNZ didn’t need to run a cable to the light fittings and they don’t have to pay for power. The Leadsun solar street light, with its dimming and presence detection, gives the residents all-night security without over-lighting their homes and surroundings.
