    Lighting is installed wherever people need to go in professional and public spaces. When that lighting is digital, the lighting system can do double-duty as a distributed computing platform. With integrated multi-sensors, for example, the lighting system can give insight into the activities and status of illuminated spaces.

    If they’re distributed throughout an indoor space, occupancy sensors can give facility managers detailed information on activity patterns over time. Lighting management software can store this information, and offer tools to analyze and report on trends and tendencies. With system-wide lightpoint control, managers can fine-tune dimming schedules, dropping light levels to the minimum required for safety and basic visibility in areas when they’re not being used, and boosting light to the recommended levels when they are.

    Highly energy-efficient LED lighting and intelligent, targeted delivery of lighting based on occupancy patterns can save businesses an astonishing 80% or more on energy consumption over conventional lighting systems with basic controls. This helps business achieve aggressive green building goals, including certifications that can net businesses lower energy costs, tax breaks, and other advantages while enhancing the building’s brand and total value.
    With similar capabilities outdoors, municipalities can enjoy deep energy savings and other benefits beyond illumination. Remote lightpoint management platforms allow street lighting managers to see what’s going on throughout the city through web-based dashboards. Dimming schedules can be adjusted to revitalize underused areas of the city, encourage foot traffic in retail zones, or lower light levels where nighttime activities are not needed or wanted. Lighting management software can potentially tie into traffic and emergency systems in the city, easing traffic jams and assisting responders in case of accidents or weather-related events.

    Like all connected devices in the Internet of Things, connected street lights can share information about themselves for maintenance and repairs. Automated alerts can send information when there are outages and other service issues—exact location of issue, type and height of light pole, luminaire type, and any special tools that might be needed. Street lighting managers no longer have to send scouting teams through the streets at night, saving significant time and labor.
