Indonesia's tropical climate offers extensive potential for straw mushroom cultivation, an important topic given frequent crop failures during the rainy season due to reduced temperatures. Addressing this issue, this paper presents an innovative Internet of Things (IoT)-based system designed to remotely control and monitor temperature and humidity in mushroom cultivation sites, a tool that can significantly minimize crop failure and optimize production. Our proposed system employs a DHT11 sensor, responsible for accurately measuring temperature and humidity levels. To ensure the mushrooms receive adequate hydration without human intervention, a DS3231 module is incorporated for automatic watering scheduling. For real-time monitoring, we use an ESP32-Cam, a specific type of camera module, to capture images of the mushroom cultivation site. The heart of this system is a NodeMCU microcontroller, which processes environmental data and adjusts the cultivation conditions automatically. The system counteracts non-optimal conditions by triggering a heater or fan for temperature control, and a humidifier or exhaust for humidity control. It syncs with the Blynk app, providing updates for prompt response. The system was tested across multiple cultivation sites, showing improved crop success and low energy use, 661.608Wh. Despite its advantages, it acknowledges potential drawbacks, such as implementation costs, compatibility issues, and connectivity. Relevant performance indicators like crop yield and profitability are also evaluated. The contributions of this research are twofold. Firstly, it provides a robust, scalable solution for optimizing straw mushroom cultivation, particularly in regions with climates like Indonesia. Secondly, it sets a new benchmark for energy-efficient, automated mushroom farming, offering substantial benefits to farmers and the overall agricultural industry while further emphasizing its potential impact.
