Re: Smart streetlight? FFS, why?

The local LED street lights here have very good time-keeping - even allowing for daylight saving changes

Compared to my MSF controlled clock - the street lights go off on the tick of midnight. I suspect they come on again long before dawn in winter - which is unlikely to be a light-sensing feature. Given the variable hours of daylight in the Northern Hemisphere it is likely to be a processor calculation - if not a remote control.
