Urban Control provides solutions to make infrastructure assets intelligent. That means streetlights that sense their environment and adapt to citizen's needs, rail stations that guide people safely to their destination, and sensors that monitor the safety and condition of highway assets.

Urban control does all this with a portfolio of solutions built on proven future-proofed technologies. We're part of the DW Windsor Group, a leading British lighting manufacturer and innovator.

Connected Places

We work with cities and local authorities to monitor and control assets such as street lighting, traffic and air quality. Our solutions save money, reduce carbon and make the urban environment a better place.

Connected Highways

We work with highways operators to remotely monitor and control vital assets. Our solutions include monitoring the condition of road surfaces and of concrete structures, to ensure safety and optimise repair work.

Connected Transport

We work with rail operators to make stations adapt automatically to the needs of passengers. We provide assistance and alerts, dynamic wayfinding and nudge behaviour to make stations safer and more efficient.

We build solutions for you

At Urban Control we take an integrated approach to the adoption of smart technologies; we believe that by joining up the dots across your infrastructure, you will obtain the greatest savings and greatest benefits.

Our Central Management System (CMS) platform uses street lighting infrastructure to communicate data via nodes attached to the luminaire, allowing you to control a portfolio of city and highway assets. The vast array of data that can be captured and reported means our customers are able to make intelligent decisions about how they manage their asset portfolio, enabling them to save energy, increase safety and reduce their maintenance costs.
