Abstract. This paper presents a Zigbee-based wireless sensor network system with an integrated hardware implementation and content management function for web-based monitoring in a greenhouse environment. The Zigbee is based on the TI CC2530 System on Chip and composed of key sensors such as a temperature, relative humidity and light intensity sensors. The content management system is based on open source software Joomla. The system provides the semi-real time monitoring of the environmental parameters with an epoch time of five minutes. In addition, it also provides a monitoring graph and the mean value of the parameter being measure with its High and Low value for a particular day monitoring. The proposed system has been implemented and tested in Dai-Yun Organic Farm in Taiwan that cultivate vegetable crops, the system performance showed the potential applications for precision agriculture and other fields.
