Schréder EXEDRA

The most advanced lighting management system on the market that paves the way for further reaching applications in a smarter city.


Artificial lighting has been part of the urban experience since ancient times. Over the years, technology has developed to deliver better performance. Schréder EXEDRA is a new remote control platform for intelligent street lighting. It relies on shared and open technologies for seamless vertical and horizontal IoT integrations, and brings a new layer of tangible benefits that maximises the return on investment and creates new opportunities for cities.

Cities looking to implement a smart strategy need tailored solutions that enable them to start their journey. Schréder EXEDRA opens up an infinite number of possibilities to improve neighbourhoods and communities by deploying the right solutions in the right places. It is the ideal tool to align value with short- and mid-term targets while sustaining long-term vision.

  • Technology-agnostic
  • Schréder EXEDRA uses open standards and protocols to provide an architecture that can interact seamlessly with third-party software and hardware solutions. Unlike proprietary systems, Schréder EXEDRA is designed to unlock complete interoperability.

  • Plug-and-play
  • Once the node or sensor is plugged into the luminaire, an intelligent automated commissioning process recognises, verifies and retrieves luminaire data into the user interface. The self-healing mesh between the luminaire controllers enables real-time adaptive lighting to be configured directly in the user interface.

  • Adaptive UI
  • Schréder EXEDRA offers fully customisable dashboards. Add, move, resize and organise widgets in the web user interface to create your personal dashboards.

  • Data for decisions
  • Schréder EXEDRA collects massive amounts of data from end devices and, aggregates, analyses and intuitively displays it to help end-users take the right actions. With this advanced data presented both visually and in reports, Schréder EXEDRA is a powerful tool for efficiency, rationalisation and decision making.

Set the right light and maximise your savings

Schréder is not just concerned about maximising energy savings and minimising carbon footprint. Our priority is always to ensure safety for people by providing the right light in all circumstances.

Schréder EXEDRA integrates advanced features for programming the most efficient dimming profiles based on endless variables (calendar days, special events, seasons, etc) while providing safety, comfort and a sense of well-being for people.

Schréder EXEDRA can integrate smart lighting applications such as the ability to adapt the colour of the light or build dynamic lighting scenarios through PIR sensors or radars. As it offers complete interoperability, Schréder EXEDRA can manage controllers/sensors and control luminaires from other manufacturers.

Automate routine actions and reports

Schréder EXEDRA integrates a powerful automation engine to easily customise advanced sequences of automated actions based on the conditions and rules you define.

The automation centre includes the creation of alerts and notifications, the definition of custom events on the platform, the performance of complex calculations, the triggering of reports, and data aggregation. The execution of these tasks can be constantly monitored in the user interface, and tasks can be scheduled as required. It is the ideal tool to simplify operations and automate repetitive tasks!

Multi-tenant architecture

Configure and manage different zones independently.
Thanks to the Schréder EXEDRA multi-tenant architecture, contractors, utilities and big cities can segregate areas and split their assets into various projects. The user settings application enables system administrators to create different user profiles and assign them to a role with access rights per application/feature, per device type, and per geographical group. It is easy to create specific access for maintenance operators, energy operators, managers, sub-contractors or city operators. It is also possible to limit rights to certain applications (i.e. manual ON/OFF, dimming command, inventory update, etc.), and limit access to specific geographical areas.

Ticketing system

The Schréder EXEDRA ticketing centre enables the user to create, prioritise, assign, track, manage issues (tickets), or any other events and associate them with any devices. All types of assets (e.g. controlled or non-controlled luminaires, cables, cabinets) can be associated to a ticket along with a state, severity, assignee, description, optional comments and attached file (e.g. photo).

This fully integrated ticketing system helps you optimise your asset management and maintenance.

Foundations for a smart city

It is commonly agreed that smart street lighting is the springboard for smart cities. Luminaires are everywhere across the city. They are evenly distributed in the streets, installed at an ideal height for wireless communication and connected to the power grid. Cities will rely more and more on street lighting to build additional value beyond illumination.

Over time, depending on their strategy and priorities, managers will look at converting their smart lighting scheme to a proper smart city infrastructure. Investing in a flexible and futureproof solution is key to succeed in this next step.

Schréder’s Smart City Centre of Excellence, Hyperion, has developed EXEDRA as the ideal platform to build open, interoperable and resilient IoT ecosystems and support smart cities for the future.

OWLET IV state-of-the-art wireless controllers

OWLET IV luminaire controllers operate Schréder’s luminaires and luminaires from third parties. They offer easy installation and have fast plug-and-play commissioning. OWLET IV DATALIFTs use mesh network to aggregate information from a cluster of OWLET IV MESHNODEs, and forward this on to the IoT platform using cellular connectivity. Among other features, OWLET IV controllers use advanced cybersecurity mechanisms to protect the deployment in the city and provide accurate power outage information to the city’s streetlight managers. OWLET IV controllers are managed with EXEDRA, Schréder’s advanced smart lighting management platform.

Connect the unconnected

POHO GEN2 enables an existing lighting installation to be retrofitted when connectivity has not been natively provided. It can also be used to prevent the controller interfering with the pure aesthetics of a decorative lantern, or when a NEMA socket cannot be fitted on a luminaire due to its specific design. It provides wired connectivity to manage luminaire power switching, dimming, and an optional connection to any third-party sensor. This accessory is available in two variants, with or without a built-in PIR motion sensor.
