The information monitoring points for greenhouse environment were scattered, so a wireless sensor network with star-type network topology was designed and the wireless monitoring system for greenhouse was developed. By employing CC2430 chip as the core hardware, WSN implemented real-time data acquisition and remote wireless transmission. The field data was transmitted to the monitoring host through RS-232 interface. The node management software was developed based C language and the data management software was developed using LabVIEW 8.6. The system was featured by low cost and simply installation. The primary experiments show that the system performance is stable and can meet the design requirement of remote data acquisition.
