Abstract

The pace of urbanization has increased significantly over the past few decades. Urban areas need improved services and applications to enable better lifestyles. The implementation of the Internet of Things could significantly improve the urban lighting system, as it consumes more energy than the rest of the city. Lighting fixtures consume a lot of energy, so improving efficiency and detecting failures quickly is a major challenge. The conventional street light control systems require maintenance and manual work. The proposed IoT-based street light control system uses the web-based controls as an energy-efficient alternative. The system uses wireless technology to connect all streetlights to a common Wi-Fi network, solving the problem of unorganized and unsystematic maintenance. The developed prototype system works well for controlling each street lighting system individually and reduces the power consumption through an LDR sensor, which controls the LED brightness. It monitors the status and turns off electrical equipment from a central location, which results in improved system efficiency and centralized device management significantly reduces the power consumption.
