The granary monitoring systems in used in China are mostly based on wired networks such as RS-485 serial bus, CAN fieldbus, etc. Inevitably these monitoring systems have drawbacks of high installation cost, high failure rate and high maintenance cost. Aiming at these problems, this paper designed a granary temperature and humidity monitoring system based on Zigbee wireless network. The monitoring system consists of sensor modules as Zigbee end devices, a host PC connected to a Zigbee coordinator and some Zigbee routers if necessary. The sensor module is a temperature and humidity testing device using a CC2430 as the controller and a SHT11 as the sensor. All testing results are displayed as figures and curves in real-time on the host PC, and history data are saved in a database file for further analysis.
