LeafNut controls Westminster’s Christmas lights

Nov. 30, 2012
Date Announced: 30 Nov 2012 Harvard Engineering, world leader in the design and development of control products for the lighting industry, has supplied its innovative LeafNut wireless monitoring and control system to Westminster in order to control the Christmas lights on Jermyn Street, which were switched on by Katherine Jenkins on 20th November. Harvard’s LeafNut system, which is currently being rolled out across Westminster’s 14,000 street lights as part of the council’s SMART lights scheme, allows engineers to control the Christmas lights via an iPad, tablet or smartphone, and receive comprehensive maintenance and energy usage reports for each lamp.Russell Fletcher, sales and marketing director at Harvard Engineering, commented, “It is fantastic that LeafNut is being used to control Westminster’s Christmas lights and we are thrilled that a high profile celebrity such as Katherine Jenkins has switched the lights on. LeafNut is successfully controlling Westminster’s street lights and it is great that they have noticed the benefits and are rolling the system out more widely.”This is the first year that Christmas lights will be displayed along the entire length of Jermyn Street, and include new sparkling, snowflake panels as well as two Christmas trees, donated from Windsor Great Park which is owned and managed by The Crown Estate, which have been installed within the grounds of St James’s Church.
