Aiming at the energy consumption management of the library, a scheme of library monitoring system based on IoT is proposed. The library monitoring system is designed with embedded technology and LoRa technology, including the perception layer, network layer and application layer. The system consists of the underlying LoRa nodes, sink nodes, servers and monitoring terminals to achieve the library’s internal power monitoring and management. In this paper, the system network topology, LoRa node hardware and software design, communication protocol design are introduced detailedly. Experiment tests indicate that the scheme has the long communication distance, low power consumption, easy networking and effective performance. The design provides a great solution for smart library energy consumption management and energy saving.
