Smart Lighting can be activated where it’s needed – in the required intensity. For instance, street lighting can react to rain and fog and intensify illumination to warn drivers of accidents ahead, all of which makes driving much safer. In residential areas with less traffic, the system also reduces energy consumption, CO2 emissions, and light pollution by dimming the lights.
Since London’s Pall Mall became the first street in the world to be illuminated with gaslights in 1807, street lighting has become fundamental to our urban experience. Today, street lighting is once again a focus for urban innovation as lighting networks become a platform for a range of smart city applications.
Replacing a legacy street lighting system with LEDs can reduce a municipality’s energy bill by half. Integrating those lights with networking and intelligent controls can provide a further 30% in savings—and provide a platform for current and future smart city applications that can enhance public safety, traffic management, health, comfort, and more.
City planners and leaders are embracing smart, connected lighting upgrades—and are confronting an array of connectivity choices that may (or may not) enable the city to achieve its goals. These choices range from low cost ultra-narrowband options to higher cost, high capacity broadband.
