Abstract: The climate change has brought about unpredictable weather conditions that have resulted in the global food shortage being experienced. This issue can be solved by greenhouses, they play a main role in increasing the crop yield per unit area and represent the suitable environment for off-corps yields. Managing and continuous monitoring the green house environment can be done using a wired sensor network, but the high cost, wiring complexity, fixed sensor locations and the restricted distances are the big problems of this type of a networking. To solve these problems, we implemented a real time embedded system using Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) based on ZigBee technology to control and monitor the environmental of greenhouses. The WSN can be adopted as the best solution to apply in greenhouse because of its good properties, long distances, low-cost, low power consumption, high security and high reliability. The constructed system is implemented based on simple components, ATMEGA328P microcontroller and ZigBee are represented the kernel of sensor node, collect data from various sensors and present them to a coordinating station where data can be stored and processed, then actuators will be operate depending on the processed data. The captured data will be displayed for monitoring in a real time manner. The monitor system was developed using GSM technology. The simulation results show that the system is more efficient in the manpower saving and raising the economic value of products. Furthermore, the developed system is simple, and easily installable.
