Technology Acceptance Model, Internet of Things, Mushroom House, Smart Farm


The purpose of this study is to (1) To develop the NodeMCU’s mushroom house control system that be able to control by both automatic system and manual system (2) To generate the application (or related online tool) that be able to adjust the suitable humidity and appropriate temperature for each growth stages of mushroom in the mushroom house (3) To determine the perception of the NodeMCU’s users by applying TAM model. “Song Pee Nong” mushroom farm was chosen as a case study to implement the NodeMCU’s system in this study. After installed the NodeMCU’s mushroom house control system and developed the mobile application for the users, the system was able to sustain the most appropriate temperature and humidity in mushroom house by set up the system automatically or by control manually from the users via mobile application. This study also applied technology acceptance model (TAM) to explain the famer’s intention to use the NodeMCU’s mushroom house control system in the future.
