We have recently acquired a new building and have started renovations on it. In 
the network plan I have included the light poles in the parking as part of the 
wireless and security camera infrastructure. I recently found out that the 
majority of light poles have some kind of AC or DC output to allow other 
devices to be attached (such as cameras or speakers). I found a couple of Cisco 
outdoor wireless access points that accept that DC input.

We haven't implemented yet but I'll let you know how it goes. In short, it does 
seem like a good idea to take advantage of the poles. In particular, it makes 
adding security cameras and wifi in the parking lot easier.
