Abstract: This article describes the development and implementation of a Wireless Sensor Network WSN, in the Botanical Garden Reinaldo Espinosa owned by the National University of Loja. The simulator NS2 (Network Simulator V2 was used for this design, which allows to display the results of tests sending packages and power consumption, letting us analyze the advantages and disadvantages of each topology, thus we determined that the star topology is the best option when transmitting in real-time data provided by the sensor nodes. Through the simulation results we proceeded to implement a prototype WSN, based onXBee Pro S2B wireless communication modules, processing and energy units, and temperature and relative humidity sensor. Finally, weshow the data to the user with a graphical interface that enables real-time monitoring
