Cox2M IoT Business Line of Cox Communications will Pilot New Lighting Controls

The City of Henderson and Cox Communications have successfully deployed the first stage of their smart community collaboration, starting with energy efficient lighting management and controls.

Cox2M, the IoT business line of Cox Communications, and the city are testing the solution in the area to help address challenges like energy conservation, infrastructure management and workflow automation. The objective of the pilot will be to measure the overall impact and value created by the smart community solution.

This collaboration will position Henderson among the most innovative communities as it aggregates critical data from energy consumption to make actionable decisions on resource management.

With the current and future phases of the pilot, the area will soon become an innovation exploration environment for the Cox2M Smart Communities platform. The goal is to uncover insights and new solutions to expand in Henderson and other Cox markets.

The one-year pilot began September 1, 2020 and includes smart lighting controls on thirty-three decorative and non-decorative lights, which will lower energy, maintenance and operational costs. The smart lighting solution will allow the city to monitor the energy usage through a single user interface, so municipal leaders can make actionable decisions through quantitative data analysis.

The City of Henderson and Cox will announce additional smart community projects in the coming months that address water consumption management, parking management solutions and video analytics.

“Given the economic circumstances, we are thrilled to get this project started,” said Robert Herr, Chief Infrastructure Officer and Assistant City Manager. “We know the data derived from the smart lighting project will help our team address necessary efficient standards and create a more carbon-neutral future.”

“At Cox, we’ve been with the city throughout this entire journey,” said Derrick Hill, vice president, Cox Business Las Vegas. “We are proud that our teams have collaborated, often virtually, to keep the project moving forward.”

“Smart lighting controls are a key element to an overall smart community ecosystem,” said Barak Weinisman, vice president, Cox2M and smart communities. “For Henderson, this is a huge step in the journey to a more data-driven society that benefits the community and businesses, alike.”
