What is LeafNut?

Venture’s LeafNut™ system is an advanced intelligent wireless control system for area or street lighting. The LeafNut “nodes” are housed in each light fixture and communicate via radio, satellite and cellular systems to deliver control and status messages to your secure web page accessed from any computer on the web. You can control, adjust, monitor and receive maintenance messages from each light fixture. With our upgrade kit of energy efficient pulse start ballasts and Uni-Form® lamps plus the power of the LeafNut system, you can drastically reduce your energy consumption expenses while improving with bright, white site lighting.

A Turnkey Solution

Venture’s LeafNut system is a complete turnkey solution for street lighting, outdoor area and indoor lighting. From socket to user interface, to server hosting and monitoring, we provide a complete wireless control & dimming system that dramatically increases energy savings and overall light quality.

Monitoring and Control

Using the secure https web page created just for your site, you will be able to monitor, control, dim and report on energy usage for each light fixture. The system also indicates lamp out errors and ballast issues which allow your maintenance support to react quickly. The LeafNut system also has built-in safeguards in the event of loss of communications. Each Leaf node will act autonomously and use its own internal program until given a new set of programming codes.

Lifetime Support Policy

Simple and practical, LeafNut comes with a lifetime support policy which provides our customers with complete peace of mind. The policy gives customers access to technical support from our team of experts.

Energy Consumption

Not only does the LeafNut system reduce energy usage, but it can supply factual energy consumption data with intuitive reporting and email notifications to accurately analyze ROI.


This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
1. This device may not cause harmful interference, and
2. This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause unwanted operation.

Retrofit and Installation

Part of the LeafNut system is also a retrofit of a new EISA 2007 compliant ballast, ignitor and Uni-Form® lamp combination. The retrofit immediately reduces energy consumption while providing brighter, whiter lighting. For example, a 1000 watt fixture can now be 875 watts with 100% light output, then dim to 50% wattage for off-peak hours and finally shutdown alternating lights for added savings while maintaining security.
Installations are very easy by one of our Certified LeafNut Installers. Venture will be overseeing the installation, initial programming to your specifications and training/support after the installation is complete.

Lifetime Support

Simple and practical, LeafNut systems come with a lifetime support policy which provide our customers with complete peace of mind. The policy gives customers access to technical support from our team of experts.

How it Works

The Venture LeafNut system is comprised of small electrical control units called nodes. These nodes are either the master site controller- called a Branch Node; or individual fixture nodes called Leaf Nodes. These nodes are wired and mounted directly into or on top of your existing fixtures. All nodes communicate through wireless methods to each other and then to the secure off-site server that you can access 24/7. After installation and initial programming by Venture experts, your staff will be trained how to use the very powerful software for control and reporting.
