Ignition SCADA and IOT upgrade monitors and controls field lighting for a major NSW council

Updated: Feb 21, 2020

SAFEgroup Automation (SGA) has been proudly working with one of New South Wales’ major local governments to install a real-time control system and monitoring system for several sporting and recreational spaces.



Our client’s goal was to simplify how they controlled and monitored field lighting across all their sporting and recreational areas.

To achieve this goal the client realised that their need for simplified on/off control of lighting, lighting level and enhanced power consumption usage data, could all be met in the form of a cloud-based platform that could be accessed by a mobile device and that could be scaled out to meet future needs.

With these requirements, our client identified the need to change how they managed their field lighting and energy usage and therefore contacted SGA to implement a solution. SGA’s suggested solution to these requirements involved implementing an automated solution that could address their current and future needs.
