Cleveland in Ohio is ramping up a programme to improve management of cameras and lighting.
The US city is using the T-Light Galaxy Network from ST Engineering Wireless to manage 61,000 streetlights.
Cleveland Public Power commissioner Ivan Henderson says the initiative is part of the Safe, Smart CLE Project, which combines the conversion of streetlights to LED with the ST Engineering lighting control system and 1,000 cameras operated by the Cleveland Police Department.
ST Engineering says the T-Light platform allows different light intensity to be set for residential and commercial locations.
Utility company Cleveland Public Power deployed the T-Light Galaxy communications infrastructure in three days.
Henderson insists the system provides Cleveland with the “backbone for more advanced, future-ready smart city applications like the high-definition images and our police department’s remote control of streetlights that can be dimmed or brightened throughout the city”.
For the project, ST Engineering installed three gateways to cover the city’s network of streetlights and plans to install a fourth gateway.
