People spend more than 90% of their time indoor in Australia. Poor indoor air quality can cause severe health problems to individuals. It is necessary to develop a reliable and wearable systems for environmental monitoring. This chapter presents a low-power wearable sensor node for environmental Internet of Things (IoT) applications, forming wireless sensor network (WSN) based on XBee. Environmental data are monitored by the wearable sensor node and then transmitted to a remote cloud server via WSN. The data are displayed to authorized users through a web-based application located in cloud server. The experimental results indicate that the presented wearable sensor network system is able to monitor environmental conditions reliably.
