Lighting Challenges

Shopping malls and other retail facilities must light parking lots, parking garages, and outdoor walkways to provide shoppers with a safe and visually appealing environment. Retail locations with expansive indoor spaces also need high bay
lights inside the store or mall.

Retail businesses compete vigorously for customers, sales, and market share. With razor-thin margins the norm, spending hard-earned revenues on inefficient, energy-guzzling lighting doesn't make sense.

The Sensity Systems Solution

Our turnkey solution for retail facilities includes retrofitting of all outdoor lights and indoor high bay lights to high-efficiency LED lighting, with simultaneous installation of a NetSense Light Sensory Network.

This core LED lighting-based Sensity platform includes

Lighting control

Power monitoring and energy efficiency management

Lighting maintenance

Network monitoring


As well as carbon monoxide (CO) monitoring in covered or underground parking areas.

and delivers benefits such as:

  • Lower energy bills through higher energy efficiency
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Greater visibility in lighted areas, which enhances safety for customers and employees
  • More aesthetically pleasing lighting
  • Automatic control over how, when, and where the light shines
  • Network monitoring services provided by Sensity Systems
  • Centralized reporting and control for multiple-site management

To take advantage of the full potential of the Sensity Light Sensory Network, we also recommend that corporate campuses run the following services on our platform:

Retail analytics: Sensors mounted in the same LED light fixtures that illuminate parking areas and shopping center exteriors can also gather data from customers' smartphones to measure and optimize customer traffic, loyalty, and engagement. Mall owners can use this data to adjust store rental rates based on actual customer foot traffic.

Parking management: Control and facilitate parking in shopping center garages and parking lots, providing real-time information that makes it easy for customers to find available parking spots. For shopping centers with paid parking, Sensity helps automate and manage payment of parking fees.

Security: Monitor the movement of people, vehicles, deliveries, and other activity at shopping center entry/exit points, along perimeters, outside and between buildings, and in parking areas.

Asset management: Scan RFID tags to track goods received at the retail location, such as at loading docks, and while in storage.
