Look what they did to this GE M250R2 streetlight. Just disgraceful!

But at least you can take off the LED stuff thats in it, what the seller said.

I like LED, but in household use, NOT commercial use. 

I like HID lamps, especially the High Pressure Sodium lights, they have a orange color, which is actually my favorite color! Smiley  High Pressure Sodium High Pressure Sodium High Pressure Sodium

That's the STUPIDEST thing I have EVER seen-I would gut that LED crap and put the orig HID back in-the antennas make it look utterly ridiculous!!!!Looks like something you would see on the cartoons!

I"m don't speak english well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I hope that LED won't replace all forms of other light

Well I think its dum to put a LED Retrofit on a original HID fixture. No offence.

LED lighting has its place in the home or other indoor uses, but outdoors in street lights is in my opinion not one of them.

To turn it into a spy device. maybe?
Or possibly just so it could be controlled remotely?

The wifi is not related to the lighting operation. It is either provided by the city for people to use. or for reading smart meters etc. The streetlight is however about the only thing installed in the street, getting power (without needing to install a new service for every wifi AP)

What is ridiculous about some of those wireless systems - They could of left the antenna inside the luminaire (in the optical compartment, or in case of luminaire body made of Fiber - anywhere in the luminaire) and it would work the same, there is no need to poke the antenna out...

I think this is a viable idea. I liek the light, and if i had bought it, would probably leave it LED (at least until the panels finally burn out).

homemade conversion = no good
no heatsink = bad
5mm leds = worse
little (if none) insulation = worst.

its a demo unit.
5mm wont do squat up on a pole but close to the floor at a trade show they would be fine.
and good 5mm on a board with heavy copper traces will last.
problem is most 5mm are garbage.
unless cree,nichia,yuji,ect.

That looks painful to touch
