The perfect parking space: GreenParking

Saving you energy

while keeping visitors safe


Very often, lighting needs to remain on 24/7, leading to a high use of energy and increased costs. As a result, there are two challenges for the owners and managers of parking facilities: creating a warm and reassuring environment, while also saving on costs and maintenance.

With the innovative GreenParking system, there’s no need to compromise on safety in order to achieve savings. In fact, running costs can be reduced by up to 80% with the use of energy-efficient LED technology.


What’s more, with long-life LEDs, maintenance is cut to a minimum too – another way of saving on cost as well as reducing inconvenience.


GreenParking is a wireless lighting system that works perfectly as a retrofit solution, complies with regulations and delivers outstanding energy savings.

Philips smart car park lighting system - Green Parking - How to save energy

The GreenParking System guarantees performance, security, and cost-effectiveness.”

Working from the

moment of installation


GreenParking is a smart system which can start working immediately. A complete package of lighting and controls, it’s both easy to install and intuitive to operate. It’s a perfect solution for new build or retrofit projects – simply replace existing light fixtures point for point, and add wireless controls.


This system is entirely wireless and its ZigBee communication model uses low-power devices to transmit data over long distances.


GreenParking is designed to be future-proof, so you’re able to upscale your system as required.

Staying one step ahead


In the past, safety policy dictated that you kept lights in your parking garage permanently on. Now, with GreenParking, you can ensure that you have lighting on demand.


With GreenParking, as soon as the presence of cars or pedestrians is detected, the path ahead lights up to 100% illumination level ‘on demand’ – always staying one step ahead. The right level and quality of lighting enables vehicles to manoeuvre safely, and pedestrians to feel safe and secure. Once the car or pedestrian has moved out of that ‘zone’ or area and presence is no longer detected, after a pre-programmed time lapse, the lighting dims down to its background level of, for example, 20% illumination level. GreenParking delivers light only when needed to welcome and reassure and offers substantial energy and cost savings by dimming when not required.

One space, multiple zones


The GreenParking system allows you to create multiple zones. These zones are effectively luminaires ‘grouped’ together which will then behave in the same way as each other – so they will all dim or brighten together. The zones are selected and configured easily using a simple remote control. You choose your zones to suit your parking garage layout, select your preferred ‘dim to’ level, duration and hold time too. And if you have any changes to your parking garage layout, you can simply ‘re-configure’ to suit – meaning it’s future proof too.
