Every city has a spirit, a soul which comes from its inhabitants, industries and ideas. Bespoke solutions flatter its unique identity and let urban streets tell their story. Schréder works with you to highlight your character.
Your community Citizens need places and moments to take a deep breath and to refocus. Lunchtime yoga in the park, a stroll over the bridge after work, exploring the night market…. The most spectacular cities come alive after dark, with special dates, events or moments. Schréder works with you to light your community.
Your environment Flora, fauna and the stars in the night sky are all a vital part of the urban experience. Badly-targeted, intense, blue-toned lighting can disturb animals, insects, plants, and our sleep. We use our expertise to innovate and create sustaining, healthy conditions for us all. Schréder works with you to respect your environment.

Futureproofing the investment
Customer profile Lighting manager wanting to connect the entire lighting scheme with a sustainable control solution.
Challenge Connect remotely and take control of a lighting infrastructure built over years with disparate luminaires, controllers and CMS purchased from various providers.
Solution Schréder EXEDRA reunifies the network thanks to its ability to control nodes plugged on Zhaga/NEMA sockets and luminaires from multiple manufacturers. With an API, EXEDRA can interact with third-party asset management systems to merge the whole scheme on a unique, modern, insightful and user- friendly platform.
Impact Getting rid of a dead-end situation to start a new era with a technology- agnostic solution that secures the city’s investment and cements freedom of choice for future assets.
Maximising the city branding
Customer profile Local authorities eager to preserve their heritage and its attractiveness potential.
Challenge Iconic places attract tourists, generate revenues for the local economy and contribute to the greatness of a city. But in the age of social media, a bad buzz can easily come from a photo of a neglected environment or sour posts about a disappointing urban experience. Keeping places in their best light is both a must and a challenge for a city.
Solution Schréder EXEDRA not only provides real-time monitoring of connected urban assets such as luminaires, litter bins or public WiFi. Thanks to its automation centre, you can define conditional
rules, set up alarms and automate ticketing to optimise on- site maintenance operations. All IoT devices using the same open standards for data and communication can seamlessly integrate the platform. And of course, in these iconic places, lighting can be adapted according to specific schedules to support special events.
Impact Better than an expensive advertising campaign, happy visitors and tourists provide 100% free
promotion of the city and its heritage jewels on social media, video services, blogs and other user-generated content and review platforms.
Creating harmony for the community
Customer profile Local authorities looking for sustainable development of the community.
Challenge Lovely squares and commercial streets attract residents and visitors to shops, bars and
restaurants. People are keener to spend time outside at dusk. But an uncontrolled spread of nighttime activities can conflict with the residents’ natural aspiration for quiet after bedtime.
Solution Schréder EXEDRA empowers the lighting infrastructure to positively influence behaviour and to match the human body’s natural cycles. When night falls and the squares and streets empty,
the connected luminaires adapt the lighting level and colour temperature to decrease light disturbance for citizens living in that area, to adapt to their circadian rhythms, and thus ease the biological process of going to sleep. As all of this happens seamlessly, people are naturally encouraged to leave the area and go back home.
Impact People live together in harmony: local economic activities can develop on good terms with local residents. Good practices reduce noise, crime,
vandalism and other typical urban disturbances.
Maximising both savings and safety
Customer profile Councillors for finance and security in a village.
Challenge Keeping the budget under control while providing the highest safety to citizens in places with random night activity.
Solution Schréder EXEDRA enables the creation of lighting scenarios including the most efficient dimming profiles and light-on- demand features based on sensor detection. The selection of sensor(s) to which the luminaires react and the associated configuration parameters (i.e. trigger activation delay, hold time) are easily assigned to luminaire controllers. The detection events generate useful data for decision-making regarding future investments and priorities. Impact The savings on lighting expenditures free up budget for other areas. The village also minimises its carbon footprint. With lighting levels turned up upon detection, citizens enjoy a feeling of safety and well-being when they use critical areas such as pedestrian crossings, alleys or isolated bike paths.
Customer profile Local authorities caring for protected natural sites and fauna on their territory.
Challenge Providing the necessary lighting to citizens while minimising disturbance for light-sensitive species and insects.
Solution Schréder EXEDRA provides a flexible control solution that enables the creation of various clusters of luminaires programmed with specific scenarios
for dimming and colour temperature changes. On installation, the system imports all information related to the luminaire configurations chosen after a careful lighting study. This asset inventory feature enables the implementation of solutions optimised from a design and control point of view.
Impact The neighbourhood and the natural ecosystem coexist more harmoniously and create a sustainable community.
The factor We establish a trust-based collaboration with our customers and build open and durable relationships. The name EXEDRA embodies Schréder’s noteworthy unique customer-centric approach.
