The control system supports the unused possibilities of street light systems so it synthetizes in one coordinated unit the saving and development elements. In the possibilities of intelligent control system each element may operate individually or grouped form. The system is feasible for optimal cost-effective operation. Significant savings can be made on the minor roads at night by partial lighting operation or with brightness control. Depending on the system abilities immediate 25-30 percent savings can be ensured while the residents' comfort level is not reduced.
