The environmental service area for smart city construction provides sustainability, economic, stage, and safe energy savings in building a smart city. The smart environment monitoring system can manage the agricultural environment, water quality, and air quality of smart cities through the Internet of Things and cloud computing technology. Smart environmental monitoring (SEM) systems to reduce environmental problems in smart cities are important service domains that can improve citizens' quality of life. The purpose of this project is to identify services through the introduction of technologies to solve environmental problems in smart cities, the use and management of the technologies introduced. The project findings are: (a) The SEM system collects environmental data through IoT devices and analyzes it through cloud computing. (b) Data from the SEM system is collected through the Internet of Things based on a wireless sensor network. The collected data is transmitted to the cloud computing platform to be analyzed and monitored. (c) For wireless Internet connections between the two technologies can connect through unique services of Message Queuing Telemetry Transport and cloud platform. (d) The SEM applications were analyzed for Smart Agricultural Monitoring, Smart Water Quality Monitoring, and Smart Air Quality Monitoring. (e) The project is analyzed the transmitted data using Amazon Web Service and Google Cloud Platform. When the analyzed environmental parameters deviate from normal values, email notification can be sent to detect abnormalities in environmental parameters. In addition, the connection between IoT devices and cloud platforms can confirm the normal connection of IoT devices to establish a security system by obtaining credibility and reliability for the connection between the two technologies. As a result, the collaboration between IoT and cloud computing technology can show how a smart environment service domain can help smart city citizens.
