Stamford streetlights with Wi-Fi?

June 15, 2018

So says a News12 article.  In addition to internet, these new streetlight antennas will include weather indicators and sensors, and an ability to track pedestrian and car movement.

 

Sounds beneficial, and for the right cost ($0.00).  One potential concern I have, however, is that people will loiter around the streetlights in a socially undesirable way.

 

In New York City, free charging stations for cell phones and other electronics have become magnets for the homeless [NYT].  Hopefully this pilot program will not present similar issues.
