San Leandro has implemented smart street lights throughout the community. This brilliant solution deliver three cool features. First, the lights are Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights which means their power consumption is just a fraction of the ones they replaced – saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the City’s operations. Second, the lights have a much longer average lifespan before they burn out, thus reducing operating costs. Finally – the smart part – the lights are connected in a mesh network that can be remotely managed and monitored. This gives the City the ability to dim or brighten the lights as needed, or monitor when they are not working properly. These smart lights save energy, save the environment and save money.
