Abstract

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’re usually very costly to operate, and they use in average 40% of a city’s electricity spending. As 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. Street Light Monitoring & control is an automated system designed to increase the efficiency and accuracy of an industry by automatically timed controlled switching of street lights. This project describes a new economical solution of street light control systems. The control system consists of a GSM Modem, and control circuitry and the electrical devices. Base server can control the whole city’s street lights by just sending an SMS to GSM network. The main motive behind implementing this project to save energy. Also we can automate daily required electrical switching using this project.
