City of Casey lights up their picturesque parklands for locals to safely use and enjoy in the evenings
City of Casey
AS/NZS 1158.3.1 PP3 & PP5 (DIM)
The City of Casey identified that the very popular Banjo Paterson Reserve in Lynbrook required a lighting solution to create a safe family environment that would allow the local community to enjoy this picturesque parkland, which included a beautiful boardwalk through a natural wetlands area.

Leadsun adaptive lighting controls pleases parklands neighbouring homes
Along with the new boardwalk lighting through the wetlands, lighting was also required for the 1km of pathways that surrounds the reserve and for a recreational basketball court positioned in the centre. As Banjo Paterson Reserve is close to residential properties the council required a solution that had adaptable lighting controls to allow the light to dim down at preset times of the evening so there was no light spill into homes at night.
Strategic lighting design
All lights are connected to the EDGE Wireless Control System that allows remote monitoring and configuring of the complete lighting network. This allows the council to control the full brightness light levels in high use times, and then preset the DIM mode at 20% in low use times until dawn. EDGE Wireless Control System also provides continuous health check updates of each system, as well as individual/group time-stamped lighting control.
