Smart City – Street Lighting
According to the 2014 research report by Northeast Group, there are 280 million street lights globally and will grow to 340 million by 2025. Today, the street lights should not only light up the dark roadways and public areas but also be energy-efficient and assure the safety for drivers and pedestrians.
Smart Street Lighting is an effective internet of things (IoT) solution to achieve the desired objectives of energy efficiency, safety and security, and cost effectiveness. Some issues related to street lights are: cumulative costs, high energy usage and electricity costs, increased carbon emissions, and in many cases street lights burning during daylight, besides delay in getting the broken lights fixed.
Synapt’s Street Lighting system is a smart solution providing real benefits to cities as well as residential and commercial consumers.
Street Lighting solution can automatically turn the street lights on or off based on traffic. It also ensures that the lights are turned off automatically during daylight, thereby avoiding daylight burning. This helps save power as well as increase the lifespan of the lighting equipment, thereby reducing cost of maintenance.
