Real-time data play a crucial role as a fuel for various smart systems including smart farm and smart home for automation. This work studies on scaling up the collection of real-time data from remote-sensing for centralizing the data for openly sharing to many agriculture-based smart applications. The widely-used environmental parameters necessary to smart farm applications are collected from the deployed sensors and managed for usage. In this paper, we provide the setting and management for deployed sensors and report on issues from practical usages in a private and public area. The results of collected data indicate that they are useful for related parties and improved farming efficiency. For over a year of sensor deployment, we however encounter practical issues in maintaining the devices and found that the main issues are the durability of the deployed device and interference from natural and human incidents. These issues lead to the further challenges of integrating sensing and automation devices into the practical utilization of IoT technology.
