‘smart’ streetlights hit the streets

by:SEEKING     2020-06-04
When 100 lighting industry executives see street lights, how do you get them to see the outdoors and aah?
Obviously, turn it on and off by using the phone.
This is what a Pacific Gas and Electric Company employee did on the streets of San Francisco last Tuesday night, making the crowd who trek from the Energy Department LED lighting conference a few blocks away very happy.
It\'s not just a trick in the living room;
Actually, this is a demo that shows what could eventually become a streetlight system, where street lights can be controlled, turned on and off from the center point, darken and even keep flashing in case of emergency, like four of a car-way flashers.
All of this was shown the other night.
The street light today is stupid.
When the phototubes attached to them react to the darkness, they turn on and they close when the sun rises.
They burn at a level of power, and when they run out, the only way anyone knows is if the worker finds someone who doesn\'t work, or, residents of 96 th Street in Manhattan, A citizen called the local utility company to report the power outage.
If the city decides that it needs to turn off the street lights in order to save money or because the street is bright enough, the only way is to replace the photo sensor in the lamp post with a virtual unit and then put it back in place when it wants the light to light again.
According to The Associated Press, sending a worker costs $120 an hour. G. &E. representative.
Five experimental street lights in San Francisco (
Beer between market and mission)
Each uses 100 led arrays to produce light, which is similar to the light produced by ordinary street lamps in terms of strength and beam diffusion.
Because these units can send and receive data, a central monitoring station (
Or a phone connected to a secure website)
They can be programmed remotely to turn on and off and change the lighting.
Power usage can be reduced if the lighting is cut off.
Even with full power, 127 watts per street lamp is consumed, compared with 290 watts of yellow sodium lamps commonly used in cities.
If you can trust the promise of the LED industry, the life of these lights should be much longer than the standard sodium street lamps.
This could be a big deal for municipalities facing reduced operating income.
This is an exciting moment for street lights. G. &E. spokesman said.
Did you jump up and down?
Comments are no longer accepted.
Why should we turn off the street lights?
The reasons stated by people in their 70 s and 80 s are brighter streets = fewer crimes.
Is it the tank at the time, or do we not care about crime now?
The smart thing is that, despite the controversy, the led turns on at night when they feel the nearby phone (
When they don\'t.
Although energy is also needed to detect signals.
Don\'t forget the biggest source of wasted energy in night lighting: Light up the sky instead of the ground!
With the properly designed fixtures, we can direct lighting where needed, while reducing glare and saving money.
Energy savings through efficient lighting are also good for birds, turtles and astronomers.
I can\'t wait to have a good time with a bunch of hackers!
Street lights do not prevent crime.
Quality of life, common opportunities and community involvement in crime prevention.
The idea of street lights stopping criminals makes no sense, especially since cities with the most street lights also have the most crimes.
In the lower crime rate, the atmosphere, aesthetics and environment will have a huge impact.
Research has proved that I live in a small town with a progressive attitude towards citizenship.
There are very few street lights on any street.
So the night sky is dark and the stars are really shining.
The night here has an aesthetic quality that residents really like.
Street lights are just another product in our world, and the company sells them to us under one or another excuse for their profits and our continued decline.
In the past, the company of friends was the best way to prevent crime-now it\'s street lights and surveillance cameras, which we think is inseparable-despite the growing crime.
Let\'s go back to the dark starry sky, quiet streets, healthy, well-preserved, participatory communities, and we will show you a world of low crime rates.
I think the smart street light is an interesting proposition with some useful applications.
On the other hand, I would prefer to see cleaner waters where we and our children can fish, local gardens where we can grow food, cars are banned in our towns, so that we can move around in a world that doesn\'t feel like a machine, not a human being.
The next wave of making smart products will bring new oceans of pollutants and waste, forcing us to move further into small boxes and stay away from a healthy world.
Sodium vapor lamps are beneficial to astronomers because their output is limited to some characteristic spectral lines that can be filtered out, while the LED outputs continuous spectra.
Even if LEDs produce less glare, they are still less likely to be affected by astronomers or others related to light pollution.
However, the ability to turn the lights on or off using motion detection or cell phone signals will be interesting.
Yes, we should probably give up the idea of LED lights for the benefit of astronomers.
They are everywhere and worth the bigger city electricity bills.
This is a waste of time.
Everything we need;
Why are smart people wasting time on such things.
The potential Pete I see falling down is when a criminal decides to use the lights for their own malicious purposes.
What if the criminals decide to turn off the lights in a specific area?
Make it easier for them to operate.
Give me something cool that we really need.
\"Power use can be reduced if the lighting is cut off.
\"I think if the lighting is cut off, the light will be turned off and the power will not be used.
In addition to the need for less power, I still don\'t quite understand the advantages of these \"smart lights.
When do you want to dim them or turn them off?
Isn\'t that a cane for bad planning?
Of course, this will be hacked in about 5 minutes! (
I don\'t think that\'s a reason not to do it).
Maybe what we need is an open source wiki street light.
Let the neighbors decide when to turn them on and off and decide on their ownservice them.
It can be seen from the fifth article: \"The idea of street lights stopping criminals is meaningless, especially because the cities with the most street lights also have the most crimes. ”Nice logic.
I live in a very safe community and I never lock the door and most of my neighbors don\'t.
But there are so many street lights on my street that you can\'t see the plei star.
Trust me: this is not the reason for the low crime rate, I hope it is darker. :(
I recently took a kid to camp. he looked up at the Galaxy and said, \"What is that? Clouds?
\"Research does not prove the correspondence between more light and less crime, but of course I can understand that when you are there, I want enough light to sense you.
Lights that light up only when needed are more effective and criminals are more difficult to plan around.
In addition, criminals also need light, and if they carry light in a dark place, it is easier to be found than they are in a visually busy place, a bright place full of shadows.
Using smarter external lighting is one of the quickest and easiest ways for us to save energy and reproduce the night sky, and at the same time, at least a little closer to big cities than before is welcome. AWESOME news!
This is beg\' of \"smart grid\", which is the key to transmitting green energy, usually produced in remote areas (
Wind from Maine and solar energy from Arizona/New Mexico)
To all regions of the country!
GE, Google and PGE are working together to create this.
In any case, this article does not mean that the subject is just.
One of the reasons why Green Energy has problems in gaining a foothold is that the electricity produced is from the smallest to not within the chart . . . . . . .
Which one do you think is good from the chart, right?
-Well, no, because if you\'re in Maine, all of a sudden, your 1,000 windmills generate more power than your city or county, then you have a transformer that explodes from excess energy.
With the smart grid, utilities can deliver excess power to other areas, perhaps in Boston, Maine.
Good things for PGE, GOOGLE and GE! //ge. ecomagination. com/smartgrid/?
C _ id = Google SmartGrid/landing_pagejames BSo, PG & E remodel street lights in front of HQ to make the New York Times?
I don\'t know who is jumping.
As a professional lighting designer, I can guarantee that most of the information about White LED life and LED thermal management is only sketchy at best.
I will add that the LED street light I have seen so far shows a serious glare problem (
I haven\'t seen these special fixtures though. )
Interestingly, compare the cost of these extra special LED street lamps with the cost of traditional metal halides or high-pressure sodium street lamps.
What\'s the big deal?
I have been using my phone to control my lights for at least 12 years.
Along with those who point out that street lights can\'t stop crime, lights can glow at very little cost, not at lights, and I would like to add that in the offices and government buildings in Manhattan and the boroughs, thousands of unnecessary lights are burning all night.
These lights are a huge and expensive waste of money and energy, and they make it impossible for many people to sleep without multi-layer shadows on Windows.
Think about it.
In order to sleep at night, it is ridiculous to have to block the artificial light?
Let\'s take the cost of light pollution seriously and let some people think the tanker is working on a solution.
No need to let the lights detect motion or mobile phone signals;
Just use a button.
Keep one of every three lights on each street (
Or the most suitable ratio).
Put a button on the lights in every corner and open the street for so many minutes.
Everything is connected, everything will be connected back to the digital design Building Information Model (BIM)
-Whether it\'s architecture or city size-as a means of getting real-
Time Design feedback and optimization concepts, initial and long term
The term environmental performance. Total Life-
Management of circular facilities (TLFM)
As we currently know, the design industry will change.
Previously scattered or isolated information will be consolidated, in turn, enabling us to understand broader prospects such as better use of energy, reduction of greenhouse gases, active communities and communities.
This is another (
Seems irrelevant)
In an important datadriven, puzzle.
I would rather walk on a street with plenty of light than on a street with little or no light.
I don\'t care if there is no connection between lighting and crime, I still want to feel safe and have a look at my surroundings at night.
I don\'t think hackers will take advantage of this.
Most utilities have a SCADA that enables them to dismantle remotely
Inject energy into the whole system
Compared to this, a few street lights out will be very small.
The idea of street lights stopping criminals makes no sense, especially since cities with the most street lights also have the most crimes.
Did you graduate in eighth grade?
Controlling street lights through my phone reminds me of the opening of the first Harry Potter . . . . . . Despite the controversy over the link between crime and street lights, I bet that if you turn off a crime area with street lights, the result would be more crime.
