Abstract: Wireless actuator networks, which control devices by analyzing data collected from sensors, are becoming important in the area of precision open-field agriculture. This paper will present wireless irrigation valve system architecture based on LoRa and controlled by a cloud server for autonomous irrigation in open fields and the design of a non-real-time actuator protocol; this includes the implementation procedure for each node in the system. The results are also presented for the experiment conducted on a lawn that shows the proper operation of irrigation valves that use the protocol proposed in this paper.
