Environmental monitoring in agriculture is an interesting and promising area of application for wireless sensor networks. Wireless sensor networks can deliver valuable information about environment, animals and their habitat. This paper describes a case where such sensing application was implemented with biologists. The wireless sensor network collected data in hard outdoors conditions over a period of one year, during which luminosity, temperature and humidity were measured in a fox house. In addition to habitat monitoring, the reliability of the wireless technology used was also one of the subjects of the study. This paper describes the Foxhouse Case implementation, reports on its results and discusses the observations made during project.
