Monitored outdoor lighting
This whitepaper covers the monitored outdoor lighting market, its challenges and solutions. Street lighting controls present a profitable and strategic opportunity for cities and streetlight maintenance companies.
Streetlights are among a city’s most important assets, providing safe roads, inviting public areas, and enhanced security in homes, businesses, and city centers. They’re usually very costly to operate, however, and they use a lot of energy—almost 40 percent of a city’s electricity spending. Most streetlight manufacturers haven’t leveraged technology to address these issues, but as the cost of electricity continues to rise, it’s becoming crucial that they do so. Cities that create managed streetlight networks can not only offer additional features but can also save energy, increasing their value as municipal assets.
