System for real-time monitoring of streetlights on the roads using a mobile app has been proposed in this work. A prototype has been developed using cost-effective raw devices instead of off-the-shelf components along with an app-based administrator interface. The status of all the streetlights is shown in real time on the app and can be changed through that. The system is adaptive and implements dimming of lights that are not in use. The system completely achieves the objective of providing a cost-effective solution for complete illuminated coverage with automated failure monitoring and decreased energy consumption.
