Abstract. The automation of greenhouse allows occupying less labor and at the same time having a better control of the microclimate inside the greenhouse among other variables. An important aspect to optimize the environment inside the greenhouse as well as irrigation systems is the collection of data, records of the behavior of the microclimate and is able to monitor in real time to distance. For this was the development of an electrical-electronic formed by modules with monitoring functions of some environmental variables, control, local transmission and transmission to the Ethernet. The team is provided with sensors to acquire commercial environment temperature and soil, relative humidity and soil pH and EC of the solution of irrigation controlled by a module based on Arduino mega 2560 which in addition to acquiring and transmitting these data by radio frequency (RF) stored on a memory card (SD) and show them in a display (LCD 16X2) Another module receives over a distance the information of the greenhouse and through Ethernet module connected to the internet raises the data in real time by putting them available to WEB browsers using IP address.
