Up to now, smart lighting solutions have been researched and deployed in many cities around the world. This application has saved much energy due to the capability of optimizing the lighting control mechanism. In this paper, a framework used for smart lighting system is proposed under the consideration of many issues such as hardware devices, routing protocol, security, and scalability in layers. The performance evaluation is also investigated in several simulated scenarios and test-beds to show the advantages of the proposed framework.
