Product Right Column

The BLS IoT Gateway resides on the edge of the cloud and provides reliable and secure communication from nodes to the Bright Light Management System server hosted in the AWS Cloud. It comes standard with a polycarbonate NEMA 4X (IP66) enclosure that is built to withstand harsh outdoor climates and communicates over Ethernet/Fiber or Cellular (3G/LTE) technology. 


Integration with the Bright Light Management System (BLMS)
The BLS IoT Gateway collects data from the different nodes and sensors in the network and provides the secure backhaul communication to the BLMS server where customers can monitor energy consumption data and maintenance information. The BLS IoT Gateway uses secure, 128-bit AES encrypted communication to provide current status at the individual light node, zone, or network level.

Seamless Commissioning
The installation and commissioning of new light nodes in the network is an easy and painless process. Our IoT gateway automatically detects new lights / sensors and propagates pertinent asset metadata from each device directly into the BLMS database — simplifying setup for your network.

Remote Management
Our gateways and controllers support over-the-air (OTA) updates for an efficient upgrade process that keeps controllers current with the latest firmware while minimizing down-time. Our scalable architecture allows you to intelligently and efficiently manage your lights any time, any where from a web-enabled phone, tablet, or PC.

    "This new computer-controlled LED system is a great solution, providing superior lighting while reducing our costs and shrinking GPA’s environmental footprint. This investment is part of the Authority’s commitment to responsible, sustainable growth."

    Griff Lynch
    Executive Director, Georgia Ports Authority
  • “We selected Bright Light Systems for their proven lighting and controls software that gives us a whole new way of thinking about our nighttime operations with the flexibility to dim certain areas of the terminal when there are no operations. This unique level of control over our terminal lighting will deliver substantial cost savings that supports our sustainability commitment to The Bahamas and will free up capital for other necessary port infrastructure improvements.”

    Vice President of Operations & Facilities, Arawak Port Development
  • In order to provide the best conditions for our customers and work force, we needed to upgrade the lighting. Longshoremen have told me the new BLS lights have significantly improved working conditions, and we are all very pleased with our new lighting on the piers. The luminaires installed easily onto our existing infrastructure, and we were able to aim the light where it’s needed to eliminate dark areas. Looked at from all aspects, the upgrade has a positive effect on the environment.”
