Ohli Node – Cellular

Ohli Node is a smart street lighting solution-in-a-box. You can buy 1 or 10,000* smart lighting controllers, plug them into the standard NEMA socket on your LED fixtures, and voila – you have smart lighting! All the benefits of advanced smart street lights or area lights – total control and status visibility – with no gateway installation and
no complex setup.

(*There is no upper limit.)

Simple 3-step installation. Installing your Ohli Node is this easy:

Step 1: Plug Ohli Node into the NEMA socket on your luminaire with a twist-lock. Ohli Node finds and registers with the Dhyan StreetMan CMS in the cloud. No need for a gateway or antenna.

Step 2: Use the browser on your desktop, mobile or tablet to login to the Ohli StreetMan app with your username and password.

Step 3: Set your on/off and dimming schedules – or just take the defaults. You’re done! Your Ohli Node is now ready to control your outdoor LED fixture.

No. Gateway. Needed. Ever.

Most smart streetlights or smart areas lights connect to the network via a gateway device. Each gateway device is proprietary, has a limited range, and can handle only a certain number of lighting controllers, plus installing a gateway requires a certain skill set. Ohli Node works differently. Because it uses the cellular network (or NB-IoT) Ohli Node doesn’t need a gateway at all. You can run Ohli Nodes standalone, or alongside ANY type of existing network.

Works with all cellular providers and networks

Ohli Node uses a built-in, industrially-rated, next generation, remotely programmable SIM card which works with multiple cellular providers (e.g. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc in the US; Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom, etc in Europe) and multiple networks (2G, 3G, 4G, LTE-M or NB-IoT) – out-of-the-box – in 170 countries. For commercial service, US cellular providers usually require long-term contracts and high data fees in spite of a spotty service in many areas. Ohli Node works on their networks but we have negotiated a low rate, fixed for 5 years. And because we work with all the cellular providers, if service is spotty with one, we just switch to another provider with better coverage in that area, automatically.

Pre-programmed, pre-commissioned, pre-bundled

The technology is all built-in, pre-packaged and bundled with the software and monitoring service you need to make it work first time. But best of all, Ohli Node sells for a fixed, one-time price with no extra roaming or other add-on charges. You know exactly how much you are paying for 5 years of service.

Cloud-based management and monitoring built-in

Ohli Node comes with a 5-year CMS license (central management system) based on Dhyan’s StreetMan. Management, monitoring, cloud hosting, support, maintenance and updates are all included. And StreetMan can manage controllers from different manufacturers running different network protocols, all at the same time, so you are never locked in. Or locked out.

Ohli Node is secure

Ohli Node uses TLS/AES to provide end-to-end encryption, the gold standard for protecting communication. Only the sender and the intended recipient can access the data – it is fully protected from hackers and unwanted third parties all the way from your smart light to the server.

ProblemSolved
You only want to buy a few smart controllersYou can buy as little as 1 Ohli Node, or 1,000, or more
You have some broken controllers but your supplier has gone out of businessBecause Ohli Node doesn’t need a gateway it can run alongside ANY existing network
Putting together a complete solution with hardware, software and communications is hard, and regular cellular contracts are expensiveOhli Node is a solution-in-a-box. It comes with its own communications and monitoring software and an affordable, fixed price, 5-year cellular contract
Costs are unpredictableYou pay for Ohli Node one time only, just like a photocell
It’s a pain setting up a smart gateway. Complex installation and setup, issues with positioning, etc.Ohli Node gives you smart lighting without a gateway antenna. The built-in remotely programmable SIM card connects from anywhere.
