Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks have gained a tremendous attention in the last decade. The ability to monitor environmental conditions is crucial to research in fields ranging from climate variability to agriculture and zoology. Being able to document baseline and changing environmental parameters over time is increasingly essential important and researchers are relying more and more on unattended weather stations for this propose. A Zigbee Based Smart Sensing Platform for Monitoring Environmental Parameters have been designed and developed. The smart weather station consists of LPC 2138 controller based measuring units which collects the value of the temperature; wind speed; humidity and sunlight. These units send their data wirelessly to a Base station; which collects all the data and send to PC where incoming data stored and display in Graphical and in numeric form. The numeric value data is finally displayed on web page. The facility of adding a few more sensors and a few more stations has been provided.
