Objectives: To propose a system based on monitoring and analyzing of greenhouse environment, built for cultivating Gerbera with advanced technologies like the Internet of Things(IoT), Android applications, and cloud. Methods: To ensure optimal growth of the plant in a greenhouse, smart applications with sensors and Mobile apps are implemented for remote monitoring. Sensors are attached to the Arduino interface which collects and broadcasts the data onto the IoT cloud. This cloud platform (Ubidots) creates real-time dashboards for user-friendly graphic visualization. Further, through the Android Mobile application interface, the data can be regularly monitored and tracked by the end user to take necessary actions. Findings: The system is designed to automatically monitor four environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity, soil moisture, and light inside the greenhouse through IoT. The data recorded in the cloud is visualized through an app and the user can monitor remotely the evident conditions of greenhouse parameters. If any of these parameter values crosses the threshold set, then the notification will be sent to the end user. A mobile application developed will guide the farmers to remotely monitor the greenhouse and influence the grower’s decisions. Novelty: The proposed work ensures that the quality and yield of crops can be effective with automatic remote monitoring with the help of technology. This work highlights designing a user-friendly app for farmers which is safe and can track the current conditions, detect abnormalities, and easy water management. The Signup/login page, data visualization, and alert messages are implemented in the app which marks farming as more efficient compared to traditional methods.
