Preparing for Smart Lighting Adoption

8

Whether you are ready for smart lighting now or not, it pays to know how to prepare for it, so it can be easily adopted later. It can save a lot of money to build in some basic standards to development projects to find major cost savings down the line.

We recommend:

  • Audit lighting assets, fault reporting and establish the current state.
  • Determine where your lighting assets are in their lifecycle.
  • Determine which poles you own and which ones are controlled by third parties such as utilities, road infrastructure managers or state government entities.
  • When replacing lights we recommend buying suitable LED wattages which have NEMA and/or Zhaga sockets available to allow smart lighting to be easily retrofitted later.
  • Rolling out smart lighting control systems at the time when LEDs are being replaced, helps to reduce labour costs associated with upgrading lighting assets to smart, connected devices.
