Indonesia is a country that has unique weather that provides not only abundant natural resources but also can causes disasters at any time. To reduce the threat of losses, observing weather elements using a weather station is a solution that can be used. The development of systems related to environmental monitoring and weather stations is not new. However, most research focuses on various innovations in utilization, low cost and power savings. These studies have not touched on the aspect of ease of system development, especially in the concept of adding nodes. Indonesia, as a country with diverse regional topography, needs an integrated weather monitoring system with the concept of centralized data collection to get a complete picture.

In this study, a portable mini weather station system was built named Amicagama. This system is built with the concept of high scalability which means the system is designed to be used publicly, with each user able to manage the nodes which are their respective weather stations. Management by each user here means that each user can manage weather data to be submitted, add nodes at a new location, and can delete nodes at a certain location if something unexpected happens.
