VALO Smart City Corporation is a smart city integrator that delivers a broad range of products designed to assist governments, environmental initiatives, city planners, and digital service providers in their quest to deploy connected solutions and create cities that are truly smart. 

By harnessing the power of “Big Data” collection, smart cities are able to dramatically boost operational efficiency, improve sustainability, increase citizen satisfaction and safety, decrease costs, and open up all new revenue opportunities.

The problem? Retrofitting outdated city infrastructures to meet the needs of the Information Age still remains a challenge even for the savviest and most forward-thinking of municipalities.

That’s where VALO comes in. 

As a smart city integrator, VALO prepares municipalities for the future and allows cities to save money and resources while offering convenient amenities to city inhabitants. Real-time information can be gathered for a variety of city assets and services, including, among other community services: 

To get there, VALO is entering the market with a unique network-based platform that represents an ideal entry point for additional smart city services and smart grid applications: smart lighting. 

VALO offers municipalities, utilities and broadband service providers a cost effective and expandable platform for smart city deployment including our customized street light with advanced lighting control, environmental monitoring, public wifi and small cell services

VALO’s Smart City sensor platform makes it easy to deploy and maintain smart street lighting. It’s low cost, modular, and integrated into a single form factor.

As a tech agnostic platform, VALO is plug-and-play compatible on more than 500 million streetlights worldwide, and offers light controls, surveillance, environment monitoring, and public WiFi.

Once infrastructures are established, VALO can upsell beyond the initial tower builds and lighting components with wide-spanning applications that include: 

Smart Transportation | Sensors can provide key data for use in managing city services such as determining optimal bus routes, ideal times for road work, or identifying collisions. 

Smart Parking | Sensors or cameras can identify if parking spots are vacant or filled. Data can be used to bill drivers, identify parking infractions and abandoned vehicles, or direct drivers to available parking. 

Smart Security | Cameras and motion sensors can automatically turn lights on or off depending on if people are in the vicinity. Video monitoring and facial recognition supports security and law enforcement by identifying potential threats or infractions.

Smart Waste Management | Sensors can monitor trash bins to measure fill levels. Cities can use this data to plan waste collection schedules and routes, saving time and money.  

Smart Utility-Grade Metering | Smart meters record utility consumption and communicate the information for monitoring or billing. Cities can improve efficiency and reliability of utility networks using utility-grade metering. 

Smart Air Quality Measurement | Air quality sensors draw power from light poles and relay information using communication technology in VALO’s Smart Street Lights, capturing more data points, at a lower cost compared to traditional large industrial air sensor units. 

Smart Weather Monitoring | By monitoring weather patterns, cities are better prepared for extreme weather and natural disasters such as snow, rain storms, and hurricanes. 

VALO Smart City’s products meet a modern city’s requirements for safety and connectivity, providing a one-stop shop for Smart City technologies. Our efforts are being concentrated in three distinct, yet interrelated areas:
