Smart Cities and organizations spend a lot of money on their energy bills. It’s not uncommon for energy costs to make up ¼ to ½ of an entire budget. While many people know the importance of reducing energy costs, figuring out the best way to do so isn’t always easy. Cities and other organizations must consider multiple factors when determining how to reduce their energy costs.
While cities and organizations might attempt to cut costs by reducing the amount of lights placed throughout city, proper lighting significantly reduces the amount of crime in city spaces. Adequate lighting also improves citizen and visitor comfort and satisfaction. It’s important to ensure adequate lighting.
LED Smart Lights
Replacing traditional lights with cost-efficient LED significantly reduces the amount of money spent on lighting. LED bulbs provide just as much, if not more light than traditional bulbs, making them an excellent choice for city streets, public parks, schools, parking lots, and more. Because there is absolutely no reduction in light, spaces remain properly lit, effectively preventing crime and ensuring the safety and comfort of both residents and visitors.
Mint Controls’ Smart Lights use LED, solar power (when applicable), wireless communication, and motion sensors to ensure spaces remain lit, but only when they need it. Smart lights can detect when people approach. They light up only when people come within a certain distance. Once people leave the area, the lights switch off, further reducing energy costs.
Users can control our Smart Lights remotely from any device that connects to the Internet. Configuration of the system allows the lights to send alerts via SMS text message or email if lights remain on or are activated outside normal operating hours.
For spaces that require constant lighting, like streets and walkways, Mint Controls’ lights provide a steady and reliable light source. The addition of solar ensures energy costs stay low, while larger areas remain brightly lit.
