2.    Problems with current street lights

Common problems with conventional street lights include:

  • Lack of real-time information on light status during the day or when lights are turned off, as well as unauthorized power usage.
  • Inability to monitor door controller activity and circuit breaker (CB) status.
  • Manual inspection required to determine if lights are functioning properly.
  • Unstable lighting leading to potential accidents.
  • Insufficient security on dark roads, increasing the risk of crimes, kidnappings, and impacting nighttime business activities.
  • High energy consumption due to issues such as leakage, short circuits, power theft, and outdated bulbs.



3.    How NiteLite Solutions Solve the Problems

  • Monitoring function: Enables remote control to turn lights on/off, allows visibility of public street light status during day and night, and provides kWh monitoring at each station.
  • Schedule and timer settings: Allows for convenient scheduling and timing customization.
  • Enhanced safety through digital technology operation.
  • Energy consumption savings:

             - Sunset/sunrise feature automatically determines optimal on/off times based on monthly conditions.
             - Monitoring function prevents unnecessary daytime operation.
             - Notification alerts for short circuit or leakage.
             - Analysis function detects abnormal power usage caused by unauthorized connections.



4.    The Challenges of Digitizing Street Lights

  • Investment Cost:

           - Significant expenditure required for modernizing existing street light infrastructure, often involving complete replacement.
          - Ongoing expenses associated with subscription services.

  • System Management:

         - Reliance on private agency companies for the management of all public street lights.



5.    The Special Points of NiteLite Solutions

NiteLite Solutions offers a comprehensive and efficient solution to address the challenges of current public street lights, providing convenience and sustainability.
