Main Article Content
The purpose of this article is to present an architecture of a reduced-size greenhouse, monitored and controled via Internet of Things (IoT). As an experiment, seeds of Apuleia leiocarpa (Vog.) Macbr were used and at 25oC, 75% germination was obtained. In order to apply the automation on seed germination process, sensors are required and a prototype has been built with support of a computational system installed in its interior by including the control in conserving temperature, humidity and the degree of brightness inside the structure. In this sense, sensors are used for monitoring and control of the variables that most influence in the development of a vegetal species. The proposed system has a cloud-based storage and the effective contributions of the computer system are started from the web platform, transfer the set-points to the controllers, and upload data read from sensors to the same web page.
