Netgenium and Broxap team up to deploy the IP PoE Lighting at TFGM Cycle Hubs

Netgenium have partnered with building specialist Broxap to deploy the first IP PoE LED lighting solution in the UK and probably the first in the world.

Transport For Greater Manchester are building Cycle Hubs throughout the Greater Manchester area to promote cycling as a method of commuting.

They identified a requirement for an energy efficient lighting solution for the hubs, with the ability to control the lights remotely from their CCTV security platform to enhance and aid security.

Each light is an IP device and powered from Power over Ethernet. With no mains infrastructure or containment to install the installation was more straight forward and less costly.

Each light fitting is configurable with a web browser and has sensor capability. Lux and motion sensors are used at the cycle hub. During daylight hours the lights are off. A subdued light level is maintained during from dusk to dawn when the cycle hub is unoccupied to save energy.

Access to the cycle hub is secured by Netgenium’s Access Control and PolicyServer. When a user is granted access the lighting is boosted to 100% and maintained at that level by local sensors whilst the hub is occupied.

Netgenium’s IP PoE emergency light fittings were also designed into the building infrastructure. As it’s powered by PoE, the emergency light has battery backup at the cabinet through UPS. Each emergency fitting also includes a local battery for added resilience.

The Lighting Revolution Is Here

The Netgenium MIP plugin for Milestone System’s XProtect server extends real-time control of Netgenium’s physical security, intelligent audio and lighting control solutions into the Milestone Smart Client application.

The plugins interaction with PolicyServer provides access to and control of all of Netgenium’s end points. This enables an interactive and visual representation of all security devices on the Smart Client MAP interface.


Each operator can now have a streamlined and tailored console showing live status information and providing control at the click of a mouse button.

Intelligent Audio provides the operator with access to all of the pre-recorded announcements stored on PolicyServer and the ability to select and play the announcements over selected paging zones or individual speakers. Live ad-hoc announcements can be made using the pc’s microphone and Push To Talk feature of the plugin.

Access Control provides live status of secured doors as well as the ability to control individual or groups of doors.


Lighting Control provides live status information and control of lighting areas, pre-defined on PolicyServer.

All controls are presented as context menus on the map or in the easy to use control panel.
