The Internet of Things (IoT) has flourished in recent years, which brings convenience to people’s lives, improves the quality of life, allows more effectively managing and maximizing benefits in industry, and improves weather predictions as the impact of global warming has complicated traditional methods to infer the weather. To this end, agriculture has also given more attention to greenhouse cultivation. In the early days of industrial research, Wi-Fi and ZigBee were used as short-or medium-distance communication technologies for transmissions in the network layer of the IoT architecture. Instead of long-distance communication technologies, such as LoRa and NB-IoT, the features of low power consumption and low cost are also more favored by the industry. This article uses the NB-IoT communication module with various sensors to monitor and control a small smart greenhouse, and the data sensed on the network platform is visually presented and recorded. On one hand, the control matches the NB-IoT communication module with the relay module. The fan, LED light, and motor can be controlled by the conditions set on the network platform. Therefore, a smart greenhouse with bidirectional control is realized.
