The World's Fastest Outdoor & Street Lighting Design Software ...which is Quick, Easy and Intuative

Lighting Reality PRO is a fast and easy-to-use PC software lighting design application, which enables lighting designers to quickly produce standards-compliant street and outdoor area lighting plans in real-time. The Lighting Reality PRO application comes ready-loaded with photometric data from a wide variety of top International lighting manufacturers, and supports all the key road lighting standards, including IES RP08 for North American users and EN 13201 for European users.

This intuitive exterior lighting design application requires no basic training to use – and is super fast! Lighting Reality PRO is so easy to use that most lighting designers can become competent in as little as half an hour.


Real-time, on-screen updates

This is the only lighting program in the world that displays results immediately on-screen as fittings are selected, moved, or changed. Big time savings for busy designers, making Reality the program of choice for outdoor lighting professionals across the globe.

Quick, easy, intuitive

So easy-to-use that most experienced lighting engineers can become competent users in as little as half an hour. Navigation is super-intuitive and very friendly. Excellent Help files and email Support available.

Luminaire photometrics

The polar diagram, lantern image and photometric file data are all accessible during luminaire selection. This example shows how the on-screen display alters when the lantern optic setting is changed.

Report customisation

The report customisation feature allows the user to set up the report with the elements required. In this instance, we have chosen the title page, layout page, layout with contours, greyscale, or results, as well as polar and cartesian curves.

DXF/DWG file handling

Lighting Reality allows the import of DXF, or DWG, files in AutoCAD 2010 format, or earlier. We also allow the user to dispay the drawing in a single grey colour by default, or in its orginal colours, if required.


The user can select any printer and then any paper format associated with that printer in portrait, or landscape, layout. Any of the predefined scales can be selected, or a user-specified value inserted. Required elements, such as greyscale, contours, or results, can then be selected.
