Beka Schréder Introduces Unique Smart Light Tower

  • Designed by Schréder, SHUFFLE is a connected, modular approach to outdoor hardware with plug-and-play rotatable modules that contain pre-certified hardware. 
  • This smart lighting column integrates features such as loudspeakers, CCTV cameras, WiFi, intercoms, warning strobes and EV chargers.
  • SHUFFLE is a completely energy-efficient yet affordable smart city solution that requires very low maintenance.

 Introducing our SHUFFLE versions: They are preconfigured ready-to-go smart poles to suit your needs.


This preconfigured version of the smart multi-functional SHUFFLE column is designed to help people and emergency services in critical situations. With one simple push of a button, citizens can quickly get in touch with emergency services if they witness an incident or are a victim of an accident.

With a voice-over IP intercom, people can explain the problem and receive proper assistance. The embedded cameras enable call centres to take the right actions thanks to a real-time video feed. The strobe light and horn, that can be triggered remotely, make sure that the emergency signal is seen and heard by bystanders in the area. They also guide the emergency crew to the exact location of the incident.


This preconfigured version of the smart multi-functional SHUFFLE column is designed to provide multiple services, aesthetically and efficiently, to business facilities, condominiums, academic, medical or sport complexes, parks, shopping malls or transport infrastructures such as airports, train or bus stations.

SHUFFLE Campus creates safe, pleasant places, connect people to the internet, inform and entertain them, while keeping an elegant and discreet presence that blends into any environment.

With SHUFFLE Campus, people can extend their work, play and leisure space to outdoor areas. SHUFFLE Campus is a great asset for placemaking as it strengthens the connection between people and the urban environment with a minimal footprint.

SHUFFLE Security

This preconfigured version of the smart multi-functional SHUFFLE column is designed to create safe and pleasant outdoor areas. Its aesthetic design and efficiency are ideal for places where security is essential: tourist sites, parks and squares, outdoor spaces around public and private buildings (embassies, ministry buildings, banks, hospitals, schools…), metro, bus or train stations, car parks and sports or leisure venues.

SHUFFLE Security provides a monitoring system that enables bidirectional communication: from authorities to citizens or security companies to people in the environment, and in the opposite way around, from end-users to public/property managers.

SHUFFLE Security is a great asset for placemaking as it improves confidence in using outdoor environments.


Its aesthetic design integrates various lighting modules (360°, spot and light ring) with smart control features for dimming and light-on-demand scenarios. The SHUFFLE Light smart column can be installed in any place where its versatility, connectivity and simplicity create additional value beyond basic lighting.

Designed to light roads, streets, squares and other places where creating a pleasant atmosphere is a key element, SHUFFLE Light benefits from a wide range of photometries and provides aesthetic consistency for various urban environments. It offers the perfect tool for placemaking as it frees up space that can be then used to enhance the urban experience and promote people’s health, happiness and well-being.

As nothing is cast in concrete, SHUFFLE Light is designed as a futureproof system. Modules can be upgraded, changed or added to meet the ever-changing needs of a place. It enables municipalities to start their smart city journey and evolve.

SHUFFLE Mobility

This preconfigured version of the smart multi-functional SHUFFLE column is designed to charge electric vehicles and protect them from vandals. Its aesthetic design integrates an electric car/vehicle (EV) charging unit. The SHUFFLE Mobility smart column can be installed in streets where it is difficult to establish infrastructure for electric vehicle charging.

SHUFFLE Mobility does not only provide a charging solution for electric vehicles, it ensures an outstanding experience for EV drivers by helping them to find vacant chargers, by ensuring a high security level for them and their car and by offering the best lighting solution at night.

The SHUFFLE provides endless possibilities of making your space your own. With the SHUFFLE people are encouraged to spend more time outdoors, to socialise, to contribute to the local economy and to develop a true sense of community.

Custom configurations are available. Please get in touch with us to find out more!
