Re: Smart streetlight? FFS, why?

Lots of things :

1. Potential failure of the light, current consumption too much

2. Actual failure of the light (no light coming when there should be a light)

3. With a small battery failure of power.

4. meshing together @night to only come on when there is a car /person near the road

5. Placing a pollution monitor on the light, and use this for active traffic management.
