Construction of a VPN System for Remote Programming and Monitoring of Environmental Parameters for Serving Plant Production in Greenhouses
AbstractThis article introduces a virtual private network (VPN) system deployed in a 70m2 operator station and greenhouse at Vietnam National University of Agriculture. The VPN system was not limited by geographical distance and allowed for remote monitoring of environmental parameters, viz. light (10-16000lux), soil moisture (20-100%), temperature (20-60oC), and ambient humidity (30-90%) with tolerances of ± 5% of the set/measured values. The signals from the sensor system were recorded with a sampling time of 6 seconds. The designed interface made it easy for Vietnamese users. The system was initially established, and tested successfully with Gerbera in the greenhouse. The VPN system allowed for remote programming, stable operation, and no loss of data during the signal collecting process, and allowed users to fully and quickly react when the system crashed or when the user needed to upgrade or maintain the greenhouse system.
