Acuity Brands' Roam remote monitoring business, based in Kennesaw, Ga., said it has been selected by the city of Austin, Texas, for a comprehensive street lighting upgrade project. The project will enable the city to control each of its approximately 70,000 streetlights with the click of a mouse, once it's completed in 2014. The city expects annual savings of more than $1 million in combined energy and maintenance costs. The system will be installed and managed by Austin Energy, which will monitor and control the streetlights using data received every hour from the wireless Roam devices via a web-based communication system.
