A Computer-controlled LED lighting system in Buenos Aires will significantly reduce the city’s energy consumption

via designboom:

in 2013, the city of buenos aires in argentina announced they would replace 91,000 street lights across the city with connected LED lighting by philips. in addition to the replacement of street luminaires, philips has developed a tailor-made solution for the city of buenos aires based on its citytouch tele-management platform – a system that allows for a full level of control and usage data. the infrastructure essentially enables monitoring of each light point in the network on an individual basis, allowing the optimal operation of each luminaire and programming of potential replacements or future maintenance tasks. the system also provides the possibility to switch off or dim lighting levels, dramatically reducing energy consumption up-to over 50% throughout the city.
