This paper presents a long range wide area network (LoRaWAN) testbed for environmental monitoring of artefacts within a museum storage facility. The goal is to identify the optimum feasible wireless technology for this application by studying eight different wireless technologies. A testbed network was deployed inside a 5600 m 2 concrete building to validate the performance of the candidate wireless technologies by way of measurements. In addition, a LoRaWAN scalability approach was also used to simulate the packet delivery ratio for a 500 node network. The wireless communication performance of LoRa WAN was shown to offer the most optimal solution for wireless communication for museum artefact monitoring application.
