Smart Building Temperature Monitoring System using Matplotlib
Xinzhou Wei, Xiaowen Zhang, Li Geng

Wireless sensor network (WSN) has been widely adopted by applications of Internet of Things (IoT). In this paper, we present a practical design of real time temperature monitoring system for smart building by using XBee based mesh WSN. The proposed system collects temperature data from wireless sensors and dynamically displays those data using Matplotlib with Python. The data was recorded by the SQLite3 database simultaneously for cloud usage. Moreover, we evaluated the link quality of the wireless transmission in our system. Experimental results demonstrated that the proposed real time smart building temperature monitoring system is a cross-platform and low cost system for IoT applications. It could be easily applied to single board computer systems such as Raspberry Pi, Jetson Nano, or LatteePanda to further reduce the cost.
