As much as 50% of municipal electricity budgets goes to lighting streets and buildings according to the Hessian Ministry of Economics. Sufficient lighting at night is necessary to ensure traffic safety and the sense of security of citizens moving through the city at night. Nevertheless, with the help of small measures, large savings potentials can be achieved without neglecting safety. In addition to the installation of LED bulbs in streetlights, smart lighting systems enable safer, more efficient energy consumption.
With the help of sensors, streetlights with smart lighting systems can detect whether pedestrians, cyclists or cars are approaching. If there are no people or vehicles in the vicinity, lights can be dimmed or turned off to reduce power consumption.
