The Internet of Things consists of objects that have distinctive identities and connected to each other via the web. In other words, monitoring of numerous devices and sensors through the internet. This paper describes the application of the IOT to implement an automatic Greenhouse system. The framework uses a Node MCU board as the main device and all the sensors and devices are connected to it. Using this framework, monitoring of parameters such as pH, temperature, humidity and soil moisture can be done. Here we have created a framework which will gather data by observant periodic conditions of above mentioned parameters. All these activities are a unit and controlled by Arduino uno and Thingspeak.
