IOT Based Smart Street Lights

Vaishali Gupta, Krutika Thakur, Santosh Surnar, Ritesh Thakur


Streetlights are among a city’s strategic assets- providing safe roads, inviting public areas, and enhanced security in homes, businesses, and city centers. However they are usually very costly to operate, and they use in average 40% of a city’s electricity spending. Since the cost of electricity continues to rise and as wasting energy is a growing concern for public and authorities, it’s becoming crucial that municipalities, highway companies and other streetlight owners deploy control systems to dim the lights at the right light level at the right time, to automatically identify lamp and electrical failures and enable real time control. This project describes a new economical solution of street light control systems. We want to provide IP address to street lights (IOT) so that the base server can control the whole city’s street lights using internet. The main motive behind implementing this project is to save energy.
