Abstract: The paper proposes a wireless solution, based on GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) networks  for the monitoring and control of humidity in industries. This system provides ideal solution for monitoring critical plant on unmanned sites. The system is Wireless  therefore more adaptable and cost-effective. Utilizing Humidity sensor HSM-20G, ARM Controller LPC2148 and GSM technology this system offers a cost effective solution to wide range of remote monitoring and control applications. Historical and real time data can be accessed world wide using the GSM network. The system can also be configured to transmit data on alarm or at preset intervals to a mobile phone using SMS text messaging. The proposed system monitors and controls the humidity from the remote location and whenever it crosses the set limit the LPC2148 processor will sends an SMS to a concerned plant authority(s) mobile phone via GSM network. The concerned authority can control the system through his mobile phone by sending AT Commands to GSM MODEM and in turn to processor. Also the system provides password security against operator misuse/abuse. The system uses GSM technology  thus providing ubiquitous access to the system for security and automated monitoring and control of Humidity.
