The world is converging towards wireless as a communication channel and at the same time facing energy and environmental problems. The solution is by mingling the information technology (IT) and power. Streetlights are among a city's most important and expensive assets usually costs one third of the electricity bill. The proposed smart light control system outclasses the previous systems because it integrates the low power communication protocol Zig Bee with the LED lights. The system reduces the power of the LED lights according to outside conditions of light intensity as it has the ability to dim the lights. The initial experimental results show that it saves remarkable power as compared to conventional systems. This efficiency increases even two fold by considering the advantage of remotely monitoring and controlling the lights through the centralized point. Thus the proposed system is the cost effective and efficient system satisfying the needs of the modern users.
