Seneco becomes part of Fagerhult
Words by: WE-EF
Seneco is a Danish lighting connectivity company founded in 2010. Fagerhult and Seneco started to collaborate in 2015, in 2017 a 20% minority of Seneco were acquired, and in April the remainder.
Since Seneco is fully owned by Fagerhult, WE-EF will benefit from access to their wireless controls and sensors for smart city lighting. Seneco’s product developments provide energy savings to asset owners and the public with an increased feeling of safety when light can be provided ‘on demand’ via motion sensors.
The starting point of the Seneco product developments for Australia is the Eco Step Dim Motion Box that, together with the connecting dongle and app, has been chosen to enhance the Parramatta Light Rail Project and the RMC320 along the pathway next to the rail line.
Whilst there are various motion sensor based systems available, the WE-EF Eco Step Dim Motion is the only system in the market recognizing the direction of a person approaching. This enables the system to turn on fittings in direction of the person is moving.
WE-EF is looking forward to work with our valued Sales Partners to win additional projects and lead the way with smart city lighting controls. Over the coming months additional components will become available that will make motion based outdoor lighting even more versatile and exciting.
