West London Today has just reported that the London borough of Westminster will be rolling out smart streetlights that can be controlled with an iPad.

The smarter lights can be controlled with an iPad and even tell technicians when they are broken or in need of replacing will be installed across Westminster, with all 14,000 of its street lights converted over the next four years.

The idea comes after the council where looking for a way to save energy and costs by switching off sweet lights when not in use, the whole roll out will need an initial £3.25 million investment, but will be made back through savings over seven years, saving council tax payers £420,000 after 2015/16.

Personally I think this is a great idea and defiantly one I feel happy knowing the UK is leading. You can find out more information at the source link below.
