Abstract : Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris
Smart gardens and aquaponics are sustainable systems in the world of agriculture. These systems can be highly successful if they have intensive monitoring. The water flow should be managed periodically to ensure that the plants get sufficient nutrients and the water quality can be monitored consistently. In this research, Smart Garden and Aquaponics systems were designed to control and monitor the water’s pH level, turbidity, temperature, and humidity by integrating an Internet of Things (IoT) application. The systems were installed with sensors to retrieve data by using Long Range Radio (LoRa) to transmit in its cloud, and can be accessed in real time. Effective power consumption is important in this situation. Thus, power consumption during transmitting and receiving LoRa standalone and integration of LoRa with sensors was compared. These comparisons demonstrate LoRa’s integration with sensors did not over-state the standalone LoRa
