a lot of studies are spent on the smart lighting systems, particularly on street lighting systems. There are two fundamental ideas which substantiate this invention: 1) enhancement of the efficiency of separate system elements, improvement of system algorithms, as a result more rational use of Earth resources and energy sources; 2) improvement of the environment for human habitation. Majority part of these studies consider term “smart” as the ability of the system to provide the necessary amount of the light in accordance with the existing norms, lighting standards when it is necessary and where it is necessary. In other words, the system is considered “smart” from point of view of the main end users: drivers, cyclists and pedestrians, in the same time forgetting about system service staff: installation technicians and system administrators. This paper endorse studies of smart lighting systems in this extended meaning: considering system “smart” for all the system users. Therefore some low cost solutions with extended functionality are considered in this paper.
