TOSIBOX® remote connection technology protects energy-efficient lighting systems

Helvar protects its energy-efficient lighting systems with TOSIBOX® remote connection technology.

Helvar are specialists in intelligent and energy efficient lighting solutions. The extensive range of products, including lighting controls and luminaire components, can be used as single components or combined into lighting systems to achieve smart solutions. These solutions allow customers to deliver not only vastly improved energy efficiency but enhanced human comfort, mood and productivity with lighting. 

Challenge

The key benefit provided by Helvar’s lighting systems is energy-efficiency. Sites are promised a 70 % average reduction in energy consumption after they upgrade. Moreover, sites that use LED lighting can often halve their lighting-related electricity consumption. These reductions are produced by appropriately controlled sensors that adjust to natural light and people’s movement. Energy is saved when the amount of light used is optimised for every situation.

The optimal running of these systems can be ensured through continuous monitoring and maintenance. Helvar also wanted to improve its range of services by offering a continuous Service Care package, and a secure remote connection has made this possible. A Service Care Account requires a remote connection through which the monitoring and servicing of lighting systems can be performed.

Customer security is a significant factor, which is why Helvar absolutely wanted a secure and safe remote connection. It was highly important to Helvar that the systems and data could not be accessed by outsiders.

Solution

Tosibox stood out among its competitors by offering a secure remote connection. Now services offered by Helvar include a safe Service Care Account that can be monitored and this has been made possible by the TOSIBOX® remote connection.

With this new type of service, Helvar is able to remotely monitor the technical data and energy consumption of its sites. The system alerts the monitor to any malfunctions, and Helvar’s staff can then use the secure remote connection to check the alert. At the same time, the staff can also see if the required service measures can be performed remotely or by sending a technician to the site.

Thanks to Tosibox’s solution, Helvar can now offer an automatic Service Care Account to all of its new sites for a two-year warranty period. This way customers get the best return for their investment in an energy-efficient lighting system. TOSIBOX® technology has become an essential part of Helvar’s lighting systems management, and this technology will be installed on all of the major new sites.

 

”We experimented with a range of remote management alternatives but ended up rejecting every one of them. However, Tosibox’s secure remote connection has now made us a clear market leader. Many customers are already familiar with remote management but the secure connection puts us at the forefront. This is all about the digitalisation of daily life: at our largest site, we have 552 routers and 90,000 light fittings. Through these routers, each fitting and group of fittings can be adjusted.”
