Malaysia's citizen is experiencing thennal discomfort in their homes, particularly low-cost houses because Malaysia experience the equatorial climate with high and unifonn temperature as well as high humidity. So, they are in dire need of cooling system in their home to achieve the level of thermal comfort. Cooling system which can provide energy savings, the effect of thennal comfort, and low price are preferable. Thus, objective of the study is to develop a suitable cooling system for low-cost house and a system to monitor the temperature and humidity data inside the house. The focus of this study is the implementation of hardware by using sensor circuit, Programmable Integrated Circuit (PIC) circuit as controller system, cooling system, and the implementation of the software for monitoring system. When the thennal discomfort condition occurs in the .ow-cost house, the developed system is able to activate the cooling system technology automatically and it is controlled by a sensor controller circuit and Graphical User Interface program (GUI) that can maintain the thennal comfort condition in the environment of low-cost houses with the air temperature in the range of 26.0 °C to 30.7 °C and relative humidity is always higher than 70.0%.
