Abstract: This paper proposes the automatic switching of street light and reduce the electricity consumption rate up to certain limit. In the present scenario, a huge amount of electricity is wasted during the continuous illumination of street light. Therefore, this paper proposes sensor based automatic switching off and on of street light. LDR is used to detect the presence of light and turn on and off the street light accordingly. Infrared sensor is used to adjust the brightness of street light. By doing so, the power consumption rate decreases up to great extent. LEDs are used as compared to conventional street bulb due to its low cost, durability and reliability.

Keywords: Infrared (IR) Sensor, LDR (Light Dependent Resister), Light Emitting Diode (LED).
Scope of the Article: Routing, Switching and Addressing Techniques
