About ALiS

ALiS Foundation

The ALiS Foundation is an independent organisation working to develop a protocol to standardise the communication between public lighting systems and –management software for public lighting. With a standardised communication, different public lighting systems and –management software become interoperable. This should increase the quality and use of public (dynamic) lighting systems.

We are financially self-sufficient by the reimbursement AliS receives for giving out licenses. Income is used for development of the standard, funding the organisation and promotion.

The ALiS Foundation stands for ASTRIN Lighting Interoperability Standard. The Association of the Traffic Industries in the Nederlands (ASTRIN) made the development possible and founded the start up of the foundation.

Our Core Values

    • Lead by Example

      The participants of the ALiS Foundation will set up an example to show the market as well as other suppliers what the future looks like.

    • Interchangeability

      The application ensures that certified systems are interchangeable and that this can be managed from a management platform for lighting systems from different manufacturers.

    • Focus on the Future

      The ALiS standard will develop the quality and use of public (dynamic) lighting systems.

    • Cost efficient

      Contracts no longer hold life time suppliers but are interchangeable over time. This makes lighting and management systems more flexible and therefore cost efficient.

    • Increase earning capacity

      Offering interoperability between different systems will increase the popularity of dynamic lighting. The ALiS standard therefore results in the reach of more markets

    • Energy efficient

      Dynamic lighting systems make energy efficient light management possible. Because lighting can be adjusted entirely to environmental and situational needs, energy use and saving can be optimalized.
