iPad be Used to Control Streetlights in London Borough

iPad is used to control streetlights in London borough. After a successful pilot scheme, the London borough has created a ‘Smart Lights system’ deploying Philips CosmoPolis Outdoor lighting products in conjunction with a Harvard LeafNut CMS system. The council will also install GE Ceramic Metal Halide StreetWise lamps.

The project will take four years to complete and it is hoped the £3.25 million investment will save council taxpayers £420,000 per year from 2015/16 onwards. All of the borough’s 14,000 streetlights will be adapted to the scheme.

The remote central monitoring system enables data to be sent to apps and also allows for adjustments to be made to the brightness of the lights. The system can even predict when a lamp is likely to fail.

Councillor Ed Argar, cabinet minister for city management said, “This provides people in Westminster with the lights they require to feel secure and continue to function safely in a 24-hour city.

“But it will also reduce our energy bill by nearly £1 million every two years. A huge saving that we can pass onto the taxpayer.”
