Town of Scarborough, Maine Switches Over to Dhyan StreetMan to Manage Smart Streetlights
Cloud-Based Central Management Software (CMS) Provides Invaluable Insights And Extra Savings
“Dhyan successfully migrated LumInsight, our Echelon Cloud CMS, to their StreetMan CMS without any data loss or disruption, and they did it fully remotely, from thousands of miles away, without a single truck roll,” said Stephen Buckley, Deputy Director of Public Works, Town of Scarborough. “With Dhyan’s StreetMan central management software we have excellent visibility into the health of each and every streetlight which we believe will enable us to significantly lower our streetlight maintenance expenses,” he added. “StreetMan’s GUI is intuitive and easy to use, and we are impressed at the depth of the information it provides.”
Dhyan has been providing device management software for over 15 years to technology companies that cater to customers in the telecom, IoT and smart grid markets. Dhyan recently delivered LightMan, StreetMan and CitiMan products for managing smart area lights, smart streetlights and other smart city assets.
StreetMan’s advanced features have allowed the Town to identify various network/hardware issues and “load balance” the gateways, thus stabilizing the network. StreetMan’s intuitive design has made the entire process of migrating from the existing software to StreetMan very smooth and easy for the Town of Scarborough. The Town’s Streetlight and Smart City partner for the project, The Efficiency Network (TEN) agreed: “Working with Dhyan has been a really positive experience,” said Jim Schriver, Director of Smart City Solutions.
A cloud-based SaaS product, StreetMan is technology-agnostic, with built-in support for several industry standard protocols such as TALQ, OSCP, MQTT, and communication technologies such as Zigbee, LoRa, NB-IoT, Powerline, Cellular, etc. It lets cities and municipalities manage, monitor, and control a variety of smart street assets such as streetlights, cameras, access points, charging stations, billboards, and IoT sensors.

“Streetlights are one of the largest expenses for any city,” said Prakash Ramadass, Dhyan VP Smart Cities. “Converting streetlights from older technology to LED can save a good deal of money,” he added, “but by adding smart controllers and a sophisticated central management software such as StreetMan, the savings can be increased even further by giving the city the ability to dim the streetlights on demand and by enabling them to do proactive maintenance.”
The Dhyan family of central management software for the IoT market consists of LightMan for managing smart area lights such as in auto dealerships, campuses and warehouses, StreetMan for managing smart streetlights, and CitiMan for managing smart city IoT assets.
