Most new streetlights have a socket that allows a control module to be fitted. This will allow the local authority to switch on or off the lights as required, or dim them if required.

They're for the Mesh network for Smart Meters.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I thought that is something reserved for future use... Maybe Wifi access points

Chorus's new 5G open access mobile network :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Assuming you live on the North Shore in Auckland. The Shore used to use Cascade control for the streetlights. But that system was suffering reliability problems, a single failure of just 1 small wire or contactor could knock out streetlights over a large area. So with the LED upgrades, they are also installing daylight switches. So a failure will only take out 1 light, or at most only a small group of lights.
