In this paper, we designed and implemented Thing Connected-Green, a self-installing agricultural automation system capable of remote monitoring and control based on Low Power Wide Area communication technology (LPWA). Farming requires water, sunlight, soil, fertilizer, temperature control, etc., and these elements can be remotely monitored and controlled using an automated system. Using this system, it is possible to construct an agricultural automation system which can be optimized according to the kind of plant and cultivation environment from vinyl house to flower garden. The information gathered from the sensor is stored in the server through the gateway, and the optimal cultivation environment can be set and operated using the smart phone based on the big data.
