The presented sensor system shall detect and avert risks for the forest using existing monitoring and forecast systems. The aim of the sensor system is the supplementation and improvement of the existing monitoring networks in forestry. Main focus is on the prevention of forest fire, monitoring and anticipative forest management regarding extreme weather events. The system consists of a wireless sensor network and a control centre. The nodes are based on the IHPNode and communicate with each other on the 868 MHz band. The sensors in the network are low costs, low power consumption and robust.
