IoT Connected Public Lighting

Benefits of Smart Lighting for a Modern City

Environmental icon

Improve environmental impact with Connected Street Lights

Street lighting accounts for approximately 20% of global electricity consumption. By upgrading to LED bulbs and adding Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity to public lighting systems, cities can cut energy usage by up to half. With cellular connectivity and a centralized management system, lighting can be turned off or dimmed in times of low usage, saving resources.

Create safer spaces

Intelligent lighting can improve public security. Streetlights can flash to deter individuals from gathering in certain locations. Embedded sensors can detect sounds, such as broken glass or gunshots, then automatically send alerts to the police. In addition, by integrating surveillance cameras into lighting systems, police can apprehend suspects accused of serious crimes.

Reduce Cost icon

Reduce Costs

Smart street lighting systems can result in cost savings of up to 70%. Of this, a 10 to 20% savings can be achieved by reducing lighting at dawn or dusk, or in off-peak hours such as between 12 a.m. and 5 a.m.2 Smart systems can also identify lights that are on during the day and switch them off. By analyzing operational data, cities can move to a preventive maintenance model for public lighting infrastructure, to cut service costs and reduce outages.

Add smart capabilities

Smart lights collect real-time data that can be used to make improvements to the municipal area. Data can include traffic speed, noise, or air quality, which is fed back to city planners via a cloud platform.

Understanding IoT Lighting

Localities and companies rely on Semtech to provide IoT technology and connectivity to enable extensive smart lighting projects.
