Classic look bench seating
for a connected world

Steora 'Classic' Solar Smart Bench

A hi-tech alternative to classic street or park benches, the Steora 'Classic' solar smart bench resembles a conventional slatted bench seat but is specifically designed for the modern, connected world, with USB and Qi phone charging outlets, ambient lighting, environment sensors and Wi-Fi connectivity. 

For little more than the cost of a traditional park bench, Steora 'Classic' Smart Bench boasts an impressive range of additional features which are so essential in today’s connected world.

With 2 rapid Qi chargers, an optional 4 additional USB fast charging outlets and WiFi access capability, the Steora ‘Classic’ is much more than a simple spot to rest for a while.

Working continuously in the background, an array of sensors is gathering and storing up-to-the-minute data on temperature, humidity, particulate matter as well as visitor activity, while at night, a bank of under-bench LEDs light up to provide extra safety and security.

At all times, the software is also monitoring the 'health' of the system, including solar power production, power usage and battery voltage. All this recorded and stored data can be instantly accessed at any time, from any location via the 'Solos Smart City' dashboard, which acts as a complete operating system within your web browser.

From the remote dashboard, you can also set the start and stop time of the ambient lighting, set the state of the main power button, and trigger a GPS module that will record the location of the bench if it is stolen or moved.

Each bench purchase includes 5-years of free connectivity to the ‘Solos’ monitoring - no mobile phone subscription or SIM card required.
