IoT use cases: Lighting

IoT in lighting control

IoT devices and systems are excellent to deploy for wireless lighting control in commercial and private settings alike. Whether it is about automatically activating night lights for elderly residents, turning on lights when movement or a person is detected, or deploying wireless light switches, IoT sensors can be used to modernize any home, building, or city.   

This is also about the economy and sustainability and not mere convenience. Projections indicate that 5 billion people (60% of the world’s population) will live in cities by 2050. According to the International Energy Agency, the overall demand for lighting will be 80% higher by 2030 than in 2005. As a result, street lighting energy consumption is an increasingly significant part of cities’ energy use and a growing burden on municipal budgets. As an example, a small town in the USA plans to update its 610 streetlights with long-lasting LED bulbs and IoT technologies with the hopes of saving $4.5 million over 20 years.
