LED street lighting is an ideal infrastructure platform for delivering secure and reliable connectivity for smart lighting, smart metering and other Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Lighting system operators can leverage their lighting infrastructure assets by enabling IoT connectivity for smart lighting, smart grid and future smart city applications.

This new solution takes advantage of the reliability of the DLL Elite™ long-life, LED-compatible photocontrol from Acuity Brands, improves its functionality and combines it with the performance of the Silver Spring Networks standards-based, IPv6 networking platform and Streelight.Vision control management software. A cloud-hosted management environment centralizes monitoring and control of the lighting system and provides access to data through open APIs, allowing developers to create new value for operators and their customers. The networked lighting control solution is backed by service level agreements, 24x7 monitoring and over-the-air access to firmware updates.

This solution will enable these customers to leverage their smart lighting canopy to easily and cost-effectively deploy additional smart city applications over time,” said Trevor Palmer, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President, Product Management Controls.
