Signify (previously Phillips Lighting) and the New York Power Authority have engaged to replace 500,000 streetlights in the state of New York with infrastructure that houses LEDs and connectivity features. This allows cities and towns to control lights remotely and to monitor the assets for maintenance. The connectivity provided by the new system also allows for environmental sensors to be installed in the future. Clients interested in knowing how municipalities adopt smart city tech should view the upcoming installations as case studies, and monitor the project to see which cities in New York engage with Signify.
