Lead with a reliable, secure and future-proof network from Silver Spring for street lighting today,
and build a foundation that can support multiple smart city applications to give you
maximum choice and control over your future.
Street lights are doing more than ever in today’s smart cities. With digital networks and embedded sensors, they collect and transmit information that help cities monitor and respond to any circumstance, from traffic and air quality to crowds and noise. They can detect traffic congestion and track available parking spaces. Those very same networks can remotely control LED lights to turn on and off, flash, dim and more, offering cities a chance to maximize low-energy lighting benefits while also improving pedestrian and bicyclist safety. With street lights creating a network canopy, those networks of data can be used by more than just lighting departments, empowering even schools and businesses via a lighting infrastructure that brightens the future of the digital city.
Smart lighting helps cities save energy, lower costs, reduce maintenance—all while better serving citizens and reducing energy use and CO2 emissions. Automation and networked control can further increase your energy savings and reduce maintenance spending. Networked street lighting built on a scalable platform can reduce crime up to 10% and make roadways safer through improved visibility. Leveraging intelligent control systems can rapidly increase lighting efficiencies and traffic management.

We’ll work with you to modernize your infrastructure, whether you start with a low-risk and high return project, such as networked LED street lighting, to quickly demonstrate public safety and operational benefits, or if you launch a more ambitious program.
