Smart lighting technology is designed to improve energy efficiency, enable automation in reponse to event triggers, and provide users with more precise control of lighting conditions. This may include high efficiency fixtures and automated controls that make adjustments based on conditions such as occupancy or daylight availability. Adding IoT sensors provides additional functionality. For example, streetlights equipped with cameras or proximity sensors can deactivate when no movement has been sensed for a specified period of time. By connecting sensors to the cloud, their data can be used in a variety of ways beyond simply managing lighting. It can also be used to monitor usage patterns, such as identifying areas or times when activity is greater or less than normal.
