Abstract / Description

This paper proposes a low-cost, easy-to-use, IoT and cloud-based system solution for environmental data monitoring in real-time through the combination of Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud Computing technology via Arduino IDE. This paper is present a low implementation cost Data Collection Circuit (DCC) using AT-Arduino commands-based microcontroller ESP8266 and custom IoT device for environment data collection from any physical circumstances. This paper has the scope to introduce the NoSQL, scalable, serverless, real-time database that is Google's firebase, to store the sensor data for real-time monitoring and management of the database. This paper is giving access to environmental information about a UK university library during busy exam weeks includes the major atmosphere parameters: temperature and humidity, which has a massive effect on the Earth's weather, human physical and mental health. The data can be monitored in the firebase database through terminal devices like Laptop, Smart Phone and Tablet which is endowed with the internet facility. This paper is also present a designed and developed Android App using the MIT App Inventor tool for synchronizing the firebase cloud data on it and monitoring these data in real-time from anywhere in the world in no time.
