In order to improve the level of automation and informatization in greenhouse flower planting, a ZigBee communication technology based greenhouse flower monitoring system was developed. Traditional ZigBee wireless nodes are mostly developed by CC2530, which makes the development of protocol stack difficult and takes a long period. This article selects Arduino open source hardware and XBee module with built-in protocol stack to design the monitoring system. The temperature and umidity sensor, light sensor, CO2 concentration sensor and soil moisture sensor were selected. Arduino Uno R3 was used to collect and process the environmental parameters monitored by the sensor. ZigBee wireless nodes were used to build a short distance wireless star network for data uploading. The upper computer adopts virtual instrument technology and LabVIEW development environment to develop the upper computer monitoring software of greenhouse flower monitoring system. The software platform has beautiful interface, convenient operation, efficient and accurate collection, processing of experimental data. This greenhouse flower monitoring system has advantages of short development cycle, low cost, easy to monitor for a long time and high cost performance.
