Abstract: -Street light, a raised source of light that is commonly used along walkways and streets when the surrounding turns dark. Currently, various street lighting control systems technology have been developed to control and maintain these systems more economically. However, most of these systems developed have contributed some drawbacks. They have been considered to be outdated due to lack of communication capabilities, not allowing a system feedback. Hence, Zigbee communication technology is deployed so as to ensure a higher efficiency and overcome current drawbacks. The system will be able to detect fault and apprise the control room about it
